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!

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.

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!

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.

ClubGonzo (4891) - Bergen, NORWAY - JAN 14, 2013
Bottle from Vinmonopolet in Valkendorfsgate, Bergen. Pours a slightly hazy deep copper-hued amber body with a small off-white head. Aroma is complex, pungent and heavy, but very pleasant: jasmine, rose petals, peaches, vanilla, licorice, pine, apricot, hints of pineapple, herbs, wood and alcohol. Truly delicious in its strange, beckoning form. Taste definitely matches the aroma impression: loads of intertwining tastes of licorice, alcohol, vanilla, pine, rose water, peaches and hints of resin and estery pineapple and banana tones in the back. Full body, soft carbonation. A bit too alcoholic at the moment, which I suspect will be smoothed out with a bit of storage. Otherwise an absolutely fantastic sipper and a real original treat from Nøgne Ø. It’s good to see their sake adventures also seep into their beer selection.

KansaiBeerLvrs (3557) - 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.
