Pours amber red with a minimal tan head that disappears very fast. Strong sweet aroma of caramel and dry fruits. Remembrances of honey mjød. Round and heavy taste with raisins, caramel, concentrated fruits. Rich flavour, very alcoholic. Heavy cloying sweetness, lightly bitter. Full body, oily feel, flat carbonation and a long finish. Quite an experience.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Really as unique as others have described. The sake note is not as prevalent as I was expecting, and really integrates seemlessly in to the final product. Big, alcoholic thick and sticky. Definitely a bit too much alcohol. This will be very interesting to age. Good to try but won’t be going back for more - especially at the price.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Mahogny red/brown colour, hardly any head but it´s not dead, there are alot of bubbles.
On the nose it´s intense, there is a sweet fruityness from the alcohol, with raisins and dried fruit as the main aromas.
On the palate it´s very rich. I mean REALLY rich on taste. It´s warm from the alcohol, but not "sticky" as you can get with higher alcoholed beer. A looong aftertaste with dried lemon as the main component!
On of the best beers I have ever had, served at 12 C in a big-ass glass
