asimeow (218) - Sandsli, NORWAY - JUN 27, 2015
0,25l bottle. Metal tube. 3rd ed. Deep caramel colour. No head. Murky. Smells pruny, porty, and of caramel. Hits the tongue with the heavy ABV, but in a pleasant way. Flavour like the Ringnes Polaris and the Danish Anniversary beer. Warming, pruny. It’s been to long since I’ve had sake, but it does ring a bell. Overall an interesting beer, but just as a once in a while alternative.

beer-yum (819) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - APR 19, 2015
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.

jinroh (737) - ESTONIA - MAR 31, 2015
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 (316) - 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.
