I’m sorry! 普通のビールは、造りません。 ビールは、もっといろんな味や個性があっていい。『前略好きなんて聞いてないぜSORRY』には、そんあ意志を込めた。既存のビアスタイルやレシピにとらわれない。純粋に、自由に、自分たちが飲みたいビールを、季節ごとに味を変え造りあげる。 黒五インペリアルポーター。黒糖極深仕立て。 古米より伝わる五つの材料「黒五」と黒糖くを使用。黒豆きな粉の風味、黒胡麻の香ばしさ、黒糖のどっしりした甘み、客々がせめぎ合う。ビールを超えた「飲むデザート」ここに見参。

willisread (2552) - Tokyo, JAPAN - FEB 7, 2016
Can from Masuyo’s back in 2013. Burnt molasses and roasted malt on the nose. The palate is messy: burnt bread, maple syrup and sorghum, and boozy. Flavors don’t come together at all. SORRY, it sucked.

Ernest (7373) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 9, 2016
Can. Head is initially small, frothy, light brown, mostly/fully diminishing. Body is dark brown to black. Aroma is moderately malty (chocolate, roasted grain), with light notes of vanilla and blueberry. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively/soft carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Overall kinda plain and simple, but ok. Sweet without too much to balance but still drinkable.

DYCSoccer17 (3639) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 19, 2015
12 ounce can purchased at Bottle Barn in Santa Rosa. The aroma has some roasted notes with a little rubbery character and some anise, too. Light pool toys. Somewhat transparent dark mahogany body with a smallish light tan head that is quickly dissipating. Starts with a bit of a sweet chalky cocoa like flavor. The middle has some slippery, sweet buttery diacetyl. Lowly carbonated. A bit of anise flavor is in the finish. Sweet, undercarbonated, diacetyl-ridden beer.

350 ml can from De Bierkoning ( alittle past bbe date) - present from Aaltje, thanks a lot! I guess it’s because I brought Yo-Ho to their attention :-). Black color. Beige head which quickly disappears. Aroma’s: sweet drop/licorice, roasted malts, light red fruit. Retronasal it’s very much drop, a little salty even, aniseed, bay leaves/laurel. Flavor is moderate sweet, roasted or even smoked, light salty. Medium bodied.Medium bodied. Finishes with more drop/licorice, roasted, moderate bitter. Very strange, but definitely interesting.
