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!

Bottle from Beer Cartel (April 2014). Murky mid-brown, zero head, some visible yeast clumps, earthy, musty, intense caramel/chocolate, liqueur-soaked prunes, dense fruit cake, alcohol warmth, slick, syrupy texture. Not my thing.

CaptainTilven (161) - Nancy, FRANCE - NOV 8, 2014
Bottle beautifully wrapped in red tissue paper and packed in a tin red box. Surprising cloudy brown colour. Smell of litchee, of smoke, of miso. Dry and light as sake in the beginning. Marked sweetness, umami taste. Just love it.

Brown beer with a minimal head and floating flakes of yeast.Intense caramel and dried and ripe fruits on the nose.Medium sweet, earth, mould, ash, dried fruits, light sourness. Medium body, light carbonation. Weird at first but this is actually a really good and interesting beer.

mcberko (14396) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 20, 2014
250mL bottle, pours a very muddy, murky reddish brown with a miniscule head. Nose brings out notes of oxidation, liqueur, caramel and candied dark fruits -- I guess I get some sake yeast in there, but that could be confirmation bias. Flavour is rich and sweet, with caramel, sugary sweet fruitiness, and muddy yeast. There is a bit of a liqueur-like ABV burn on the finish, but it’s nothing overbearing. The sweetness is a bit too much for me and the palate is too yeasty. Nice attempt, but needs tweaking.

Geokkjer (7331) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 3, 2014
Bottle. Pours deep golden with a tiny off-white head. Aroma of malt, bred, yeast, slight minty note and caramel. Flavor is sweet and malty with some warming notes, caramel, yeast and nuts. Medium to full body, soft carbonation.

Beerhammaren (1656) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - AUG 19, 2014
.25l bottle from Alko Arkadia Pours cloudy dark orange with low head. Aroma is dried fruits, alcohol, malts, syrup notes, caramel, flowers and some hops. Flavor is caramel, malts, syrup, nutty, some alcohol, plums, dried fruits and dark fruits. Silky palate, alcohol is well hidden. Swell!

Jimthechap (2064) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 7, 2014
What a treat (thanks me). The first half of the bottle poured rosewood in colour with excellent clarity and an aggressive white head that quickly dissipated. The aromas came out with vibrant fruity esters, aromas of cherries and fresh flowers. Its mouthfeel was silky, somewhat sweet and generous. Fruity flavours abound with poached pears, cherry tart and fat juicy plums. The finish dwelt on those dessert flavours. A good alternative to port, this one.

Dobre wspaniale prawie, piwo zblizone do Barley Wine. Swietny aromat rodzynki, alkoholowe cieplo i w smaku nieco ryzowe karmelowe i drozdzowo chmielowe. Finisz przecgodzi ze slodyczy w konkretna taninowa wytrawnosc pozostawiajac rozgrzanie w gardle, alkohol mocno wyczuwalny ale to szlachetne tony smakowe i estry. Rum mi przypominal. Piwo ciemno miedziane bez piany. Wielki plus za opakowane. Mala butelka 25cl owinieta w czerwona bibulke i wlozona do Puszeczki. Bottled on 12. 2011. Polecam do przechowania i degustacji na specjalne dni.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4596) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 29, 2014
Bottle, served in a snifter. 13.5% Batch 741 Brewed 12/20/2011 Best Before 12/20/2016 made with a sake yeast from Nagano. Not the best looking beer, it is a drab muddy brown but in the right light looks a bit better, no head just a few isolated bubbles during the pour. Big aroma, plum, candied fruit, caramel, gingerbread, a bit woodsy, maybe some light tobacco leaf , a brandied toffee? Very complex, reminiscent of a barrel-aged barley wine. Wow, again while you have some booze in the nose and a touch of heat going down your throat it is quite subdued. This has a great flavor: sugary caramel, sweet caramel,nutty, light plums but much more of a tobacco leaf vibe than the 3rd Edition I think... more fresh tobacco leaves than dried. As it warms up that tobacco smokes start to show up - this just keeps getting more and more complex. Less fruitiness, more sugar and malts. Great chewy bready body. This is like a warm friendly hug of a beer, I wish I was having it snug by a fire rather than on a swelteringly hot summer day in Kyoto but damn this shit is good.
