3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle @ countbeer shared by me. Ruby colour with a small off-white head that doesn’t last at all. Smells molasses, herbs, autumn leaves, slightly cinnamon, sweet. Tastes very sweet, some maple syrup, molasses, herbs, a hint of chocolate even, bourbon, nuts. A herbal bomb, but somehow I like it. Medium body, soft carbo.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours dark brown with short lasting off white head. Nice aroma with notes of brown sugar, pumpkin spice, and earth. Big and sweet with a lively mouthfeel. Sweetness is a bit overpowering, but working past that there is some good vegetative complexity.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
10% part of the 3000 yen tasting set at CBB. A great amber brown pour with a light beige head. Sweet, sour, fruity, tart with mild pumpkin beer spiciness. Full bodied, zesty, good caramel, sour/tart fruit vibes, some cocoa or nutty notes. Right up my alley. Comparative tasting reveals a kind of candy sweetness to it.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Nice head but doesn’t last. Strange light brown color to the head. I can really smell the yams, oddly. Combination of high ABV and maple gives it a medicinal taste. Not a fan.
