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!

CaptainTilven (167) - 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.

rafael52 (982) - Łódź, POLAND - MAR 1, 2015
Kolor: jasno brązowy z lekkim zmętnieniem.
Piana: jasno beżowa, drobnopęcherzykowa, niezbyt obfita i szybko znikająca co przy tej zawartości alkoholu jest jak najbardziej normalne.
Zapach: głownie likier chmielowy, w tle nuty owocowe, melanoidynowe. Alkohol wyczuwalny, ale w szlachetnej formie bez żadnych nut spirytusowych.
Smak: solidna baza słodowa z aromatami karmelu, melanoidyn. Słodycz skontrowana goryczką. Na finiszu wychodzi chmielowa gorycz i nutami alkoholu.
Wysycenie: średnie jak najbardziej pasujące.

bastarda (439) - Freiburg, GERMANY - MAY 23, 2015
sublte sweetish nose of plumwine and tealike herbs with a hint of oak; tastes drier than to be expected by the aromas, shiitake mushrooms and earthy/woody and even salty notes balancing white grapes, caramel, plums and some forest strawberries. Complex. Landscapelike.

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.

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.
