2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Quite boozy, and definite sake characters, malty, and feels like its going to be sweet, but the alcohol seems to detract from the sweetness, and balances it a bit. Having said that, I couldn’t see myself drinking more than half of a small bottle of this.

"light orange in color, sweet fruity honey-like aroma and a similar flavor. alcohol is obvious, but it’s not overly hot. a little sticky and slick going down. the sake yeast lends a unique aspect, but it’s not elite, and therefore not worth the high $."

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
8.5 ounce bottle, with some age obviously. Pours a hazy brown with not much of head (and there was barely a hiss upon opening). Aroma of toffee, caramel, earth, cardboard, tart and dry fruits, faint hints of booze. The taste is sweet caramel, sunflower seeds, nuts, honey, oats, booze, candied berry like fruit notes, vanilla. Medium-full bodied, low carbonation, fairly hot. Solid beer. Interesting.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Milky amber pour with a white head. The aroma is fairly heavy on the caramel and alcohol, as expected with a beer that is 17%. The flavor is very sweet with a lot of caramel notes and brown sugar. There is also a strong tobacco character with a lot of cigar notes. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
