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!

25 cl. bottle sampled @ GBF 2013. Similar to the 3rd edition but comes together much better & way better in my opinion. Dark fox amber, touch murky brown, nothing in the way of a head save for some bubbles. Nose is thick sweet toffee, pudding, pleasing light alcohol, caramel good, floral sake flourishes, flowery in a sake way. Taste is cake, sweet toffee, very tick brown sugar, quite sweet, caramel candy, mixed with some bitter floral sake, touches, light booze coming through in a nice way, concentrated sugar. Little carb. Really good stuff. Thx! to the RB Crew for sharing.

Un miracolo eccezionale: le papille gustative sfrigolano e la bocca si riempie di una sensazione euforica di godimento. Corpo denso e sapore dolce e mieloso, infonde calore e si diffonde nel palato come un’atmosfera. Una delle barleywine migliori che abbia mai bevuto. Non so se sono i lieviti del sake a creare questa impressione, o se si tratta solamente di un prodotto fuori da ogni cataegorizzazione, ma non posso che consigliarla caldamente. Cara ma appagante sotto ogni punto di vista!

Very light aroma with hazy reddish taste. Smells fruity and tastes very chocolaty. Tastea much stronge at the first sip

Pours somewhat cloudy, red brown with very little head. Aroma is sweet malt, toast, toffee, perfume, caramel, fruits, a bit of alcohol and raisins. Flavour is sweet, toffee, caramel, alcohol, toast, fruity cake, floral and berries. Wow, this is one complex beer.

Bottle from trade with Palme. This beer is great! Pours amber-brown color, beige head. Aroma is extremely promissing, caramel, toffee, herbs, grapes, sake, very fruity. Taste is sweet, medium bitter, caramel, grapes, toffee, alcohol. Very nice fruity, bitter finish.

Another special beer for the New Year. When pouring this beer I could see it was going to "angry". Big and dirty aroma yet hiding a certain subtleness. Once imbibing this is nothing short of fucking gobsmacking. 13.5%? Nasty over the top and then some, but this beer somehow takes that 13.5% and transforms it into a 5% beer with character. One of the best beers I have ever had. Damn you.

What a gem of a beer, and I have two :-), so one for ’ron. Gobsmacking aroma, blown away by the depth and intensity of the taste. Did pick the alcohol tang at the end and as it warmed up a bit. This is very very nice. Just is. How they do I don’t know, glad they did.

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.

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.
