Surprisingly fruity aroma in an amber-copper pour. Flavour of fortified wine - with a twist of barley and sake. Interesting complexity to finish a tasting session.

25cl bottle at home. Hazy amber / orange with a medium slightly off-white head. Full body with light to moderate carbonation. Nice sweetness with some bitter tones. Ripe fruits, caramel, malts, spices, herbs, yeast and citrus. A very tasty complex brew.

0,25 l bottle. Don’t really remember where did I get it, probably from Dogenzaka Shinanoya, a while ago. Pours hazy reddish copper, thin foam film that is completely gone in seconds. Aroma is rich, opulent, full of sweet caramel, fig fruits, sticky dates. Somehow appetising though, filling nostrils with satisfaction. Taste is also full, has fruits, dates, some sugary marmalade - but also dry hoppiness that succumbs into quite straightforward oak. Like chewing wood. Aftertaste is oak, mixed with some "old" sweetness. Quite kick-ass beer I would say, very different but immensely enjoyable.

rafael52 (211) - Łódź, POLAND - MAR 1, 2015
Kolor: jasno brązowy z bardzo lekkim zmętnieniem.
Piana:jasno beżowa, drobnopęcherzykowa, niezbyt obfita i szybko znikająca co przy tej zawartości alkoholu jest jak najbardziej normalne.
Zapach: na pierwszym planie aromaty ciemnych owoców lekko podsuszonych. Bardziej kojarzący się z piwami belgijskimi (np. Duchesse de Burgogne). Dalej melanoidyny z wyczuwalnymi nutami amerykańskich chmieli. Alkohol po zamieszaniu niestety wyczuwalny w niezbyt przyjemny sposób.
Smak: również głównie ciemne owoce z nutami karmelu, przypieczonej bułki maślanej. Słodowa podbudowa skontrowana goryczką o chmielowym charakterze spotęgowaną przez alkohol.
Wysycenie: średnie jak najbardziej pasujące.

Amber brown beer, small tan head. Nose is caramel, dried fruit, mild yeasty notes. Flavor is thick malty caramel sweetness, toasty hints, fruity notes, bread, hoppy bitterness in the finish offset by more caramel sweetness and sake notes. Shared by martjoobolut, thanks!

Review from notes. Very rich, fruity aroma. Dried plums and some cherries in there with malty base. Taste is also very rich, alcohol well hidden warming the throat. All aromas are mixing with the flavour which gives this beer a very nice balance. Very good beer.
