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!

lesifflebiere (1299) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 17, 2014
Liquide épais, rouge-brun, pratiquement sans effervescence, au nez en fruits rouge, prunes, et peut-être un début de madérisation. En bouche, c’est du porto qui vient en tête, avec un peu de boisé et d’alcool réchauffant. Houblons en finale. Une boisson intéressante, mais qui semble avoir un peu mal vieilli. Correct, quand dégusté tranquillement.

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.

MartinT (7974) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 9, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Alcohol heat, residual sugars and spiciness delve into hop bitterness in this simple very strong ale.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam tops the deep amber.
-Mouthfeel is rich and warming, unsurprisingly.
-While I can’t fault the craftsmanship, I see no point in drinking something this strong which offers so little flavor or complexity-wise.

Sigmund (5188) - Tau, NORWAY - JAN 20, 2013
250 ml bottle in silk paper and metal cylinder, #10654, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 13.5%, IBU 100. Cloudy dark reddish brown colour, low off-white head. Unusual aroma of red beets, cheap wine, mild spices and some fruit. Very sweet and alcoholic flavour, red beets and ripe berries, distinct hoppy bitterness in the finish. Not really my cup of tea, but worth a go.

A more bitter aroma than nr 3. Taste is light bitterness medium sweetness. Finish is fairly short and nothingess.
