Bottle thanks to ilovedarkbeer. Pours milky with particles of rice left on the side of the glass. Aroma is strong of alcohol, with rice hulls and koji, coconut and banana aromas. Pretty sweet smelling. Flavor is marred by a clotted cream texture with coconut mill alcohol and buttery sweetness. No balance, alcohol is evident.

Got this randomly at some tasting in some random place in CO. Crushed with Carythedude and jakebra. Cloudy, chunky pour. Nice aroma, sweet alcohol flavor that warmed all the way down.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 6, 2009
Pours a very cloudy, grainy off white after being mixed up. Smells of vanilla, rice, aome sweet hints, boozy. Tastes grainy and sweet and fruity with a nice vanilla bite on the finish. I’m really digging Nigori sake!

Snojerk321 (2960) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 6, 2009
300ml bottle from BevMo! Mission Valley. Pours a faded white color with lots of little rice granules that acted as lacing. Nose is quite fruity with some peaches and apricots. Flavor is medium sweet and a bit boozy. Not quite as good as I expected, cool bottle though.

porterhouse (1580) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - MAR 3, 2009
(300 ml bottle (stamped "02/08") from Belfast Co-op, served chilled and shaken) Pours milky grayish white - has the appearance of water in which you have just cleaned a paintbrush. Aroma is sweetish and milky, along with rice. Mouthfeel is lightly rough-ish and grainy, also a bit chalky. Lacing consists of a milky whitish haze along inside of glass. Flavor is fairly sweetish and milky along with fermented rice and alcohol. Bit of a chalky antacid quality that detracted. Fairly nice but I didn’t dig this as much as the nigori from Ozeki.

what to do when when i can’t sleep, can’t stand the talking heads on the tv right now, can’t stand a lot of things really. so i think it is time for a nice sake, that should go well with my sausage and eggs this morning. thick milky white body, that is nice and gritty, hell maybe i should cook some grits too, grits is good afterall. nah, i’ll hit the grits tomorrow when i can’t sleep, so i have that going for me. sweet herbal, not quite mint aroma with a nice boozey scent. oh yeah this is tasty light sweet fruit and some banana, grape nots a bit of popsicle stick and a lingering light nutty taste. great mouthfeel, that i like from the unfiltered ones, the alcohol is well blended in this. a bit of a hubba bubba flavor lingers in there that detracts a bit but this woill still be a repeat purchase.

Appearance of watered down milk. Aroma of rice and a bit of wood. A little coconut in the taste. Strong rice and light mold. Excellent.

Pour is opaque milky white...smell is marzipan, alcohol, and light yeast...creamy mouthfeel...taste is coconut milk like and sweet with hot alcohol....sweet sugary rice flavors...like Minute Rice that you throw some butter and raw sugar into...good, but not great...
