The 1964 Olympics changed Tokyo forever. Will 2020 do the same? Here's how the Games may change Shinjuku, Shibuya and Tokyo Bay as we know them. pictoman (1261) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 8, 2018
Poured from 650mL bottle (vintage: 2016). Black with tan head. Oak, bourbon, dark chocolate upfront, but quickly dissipates into a mild lactose finish. Starts strong, but finishes light. As good as the barrel aging is, it might actually detract due to the disparate typing of strong bourbon chocolate and light sweet lactose (ie: perhaps it's a combination that doesn't quite fit). Not quite up to par with their other barrel aged vintages. Lilja (3595) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JAN 31, 2018
Flaska från SB drucken med ölföreningen. Smak och doft av ek, choklad, vanilj, mörka körsbär, björnbär, bourbon, Läkerol och kaffe. Stor kropp och sötma, god balans, fin beska. Gott! zoucrew102 (2320) - - JAN 21, 2018
Bottle, 2017 vintage. Rich milk chocolate aroma with notes of roasted malt, milk sugar, vanilla, nutty, bourbon and oak. Pours deep brown with a thin mocha brown head that has little retention and decent lacing. Starts with rich milk chocolate, roasted malt and milk sugar flavors with a full body and silky smooth mouthfeel. Finishes impeccably smooth with vanilla, bourbon, oak and nutty flavors. Decadent and rich. Absolutely wonderful. mrjez (757) - Osaka, JAPAN - JAN 14, 2018
2016 bomber shared at Lingua tasting. Pours deep brown with highlights and low light tan head. Nutty aroma, coconut, plenty of bourbon remaining, barrel oak, oats. Mellow and well-integrated barrel flavours, choc, oat, nice booze balance at the end. A bit of fizz and a medium body, rolls off the palate easily, smooths out well. Great timing, sits together really well with a year on it.

2016 vintage, inky black with a tan head that quickly dissipates. A bit boozy sharp but nutty bourbon malty chocolate. Spritzy seltzer like body that is lighter than I expected. Really nice stuff.
