COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We brewed this ale with the famous sake yeast No 7 from Masumi Sake in Nagano, Japan. On advise from Masumi’s master brewers, we fermented this ale very slowly at low temperatures to bring out No 7’s fabulously fruity character. This product is unfiltered and unpasteurized. Please enjoy chilled! Special thanks to Masumi!

On bottl with Visionthing, thanks a lot! Amber color, some foam. Aromas of sake yeast, malt dried fruits and some corn: high aroma intensity . Full body & high complexity. Sweet, but balances quite ok

[From my backlog, tasted @ Cimmeria and shared with David Lowenbrau]. Coppery colour with a minimal and quickly diminishing off-white head. Aroma has notes of toasted malts, some molasses, caramel, sweet white wine. Flavor is slightly sweet, with some sour notes, toasted sugar, slightly alcoholic very good hidden by a mild bitterness, notes of molasses.Mild sweet final, not cloying with honey traces and light bitterness.

UPDATED: MAY 4, 2014 25cl bottle @Cimmeria, Oviedo. 04-05-2014.
Shared with Teddybeer.
In short: a strong sweet ale.
Pours hazy mahogany-copper, with little light tan head.Short head retention, some lacing. Malty, caramel, liquorice and liquor aromas. Medium body, soft carbonation, oily texture. Taste is sweet, malty, caramel, liquor, some subtle sour flavours, but sweetness dominated. Very smooth, balanced and pleasant.

4oz pour at Churchkey’s Nogne O Tap Takeover. Pours a hazy, caramel amber with a ring of white head. Nose has a lot of caramel, orange, some drying wood pile, caramelized root veg, a little leafy too. Flavor has a lot of barley, heavy corn, whiskey, brandy, raisin. Distinctly starchy. Slick, oily finish. Not my thing.

Draft at Churchkey for meet the brewer event. Poured a clear ruby color without much of a head - though I was drinking off a drink that was poured a while before I showed up. Aroma is boozy, barley wine sweetness. Some light yeast notes. Flavor was booze, light alcohol burn, yeast character reminiscent of sake. Toffee, caramel.

Foffern (1252) - Bodø, NORWAY - APR 21, 2014
Bottle at home. Has a slightly hazy orange brown colour with a small, ivory head. A complex and sweet aroma with tones of oak, dried fruit, smoked meat, leather and some alcohol, hops and wild berries. The flavour is also rich and more sweet. I find brown sugar, leather, wood, warming alcohol and some fennel, Madeira and roasted malt. Has a rich and sticky mouth feel, and a medium bitterness. A powerful and complex beer, and is really one of a kind.

Bamsen78 (3239) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - APR 15, 2014
On tap @ Setka Pub, Poznań. Pours hazy dark copper brown with small off-white head. Complex aroma of fruit, malt, caramel and hops. Sweetish, fruity flavour, with malty and caramellish notes, and bittersweet presence of alcohol. Lingering aftertaste of oaken barrels and fruit. Good.

AgentAle (718) - Alberta, CANADA - APR 14, 2014
Aroma is a light sweet maltiness with some caramel notes and roastiness. Some fruit aromas pouring through. Taste is a rich malt character paired with a sweet fruitiness that is met with some liquor snap. However for 13.5% it is shocking smooth. Head pours thin with a light brown body.
