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!

Rather dark brown appearance, with practically no head. It tastes and smells sake, caramel and sweet fruits and raisins.

A bit let down by this, though I mostly bought it because of the packaging. Smell is sake-y, sweet and slightly fruity. No head, slightly Murky. Taste is pretty sweet, covering too much of the qualities. Not really bitter but kinda adstringent in the end.

25cl bottle at home. Hazy brown with almost no head. Full complex body with low carbonation. Pretty sweet with some bitter tones. Caramel, malts, floral tones, yeast, dark fruits, warming alcohol, spices and herbs. Great full flavoured brew!

Bardzo ładny, słodki aromat kandyzowanych owoców, syropu owocowego, lekko winny. Piany praktycznie brak, barwa bursztynowa, przejrzyste. W smaku dziwne, z jednej strony słodkie, likierowe, z drugiej jest wyczuwalna goryczka, z trzeciej jest silny smak sake (tak mi się wydaje), który akurat średnio mi pasuje. Daje trochę wrażenie nieułożonego alkoholu. Sam alkohol bardzo mocno rozgrzewa przełyk. Piwo zdecydowanie słodkie, nie czuć tych 100 IBU, goryczka co najwyżej średnia. Dużo ciała, wysycenie niskie. Ciekawe, dobrze ułożone, aromat lepszy niż smak. Warka do 20.12.2016r.

StilleStorm (1421) - Stavanger, NORWAY - DEC 31, 2014
DAA; Bottle 0, 25L. Batch #741. Brewed 12.20.2011. Opened celebrating New Year’s Eve comming up, and my 900 rating. Excellent packaging, as shown on picture, with bottle wrapped in red tissue paper. Pours small, hazy bronze with a short lived off-white head. Aroma is intense, malt, caramel, overripe fruit, plums, sugar, wood and yeast with noticeable alkohol. Taste follows nose, heavy sweet with a citric and spice touch, warming and sweet plums lasting. Body is full, texture is sticky, carbonation is flat. I like my sweets. Happy New Year!

Benzai (14122) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - DEC 28, 2014
Bottle @ home. Almost opaque hazy reddish color, small off-white head. Aroma is malts, a hint of sweetness, lightly alcohol, grapes and fermenting fruits. Taste malts, sweetness, alcohol, very ripe and overripe fruits. Decent body, average to medium carbonation. Quite disappointing actually.

This beer is like a bomb! It detonates in your mouth as nitroglycerine! It’s strong, it’s heavy, it’s cool!!
