330ml bottle from Seijo Ishi in Shinjuku station. Poured into a shaker pint. Deep amber and rich brown color with a nice tan head. One of the darkest ambers I have experienced. Nice lacing for an amber. Nice prune, raisin aromas on the nose with vanilla, cinnamon, cardamon, toasted malt and caramel undertones. A bit of resin and pine needles come through as well. Nice balanced between malt sweetness with a touch of bitterness from the hops. Very well-balanced amber. Medium body with a nice medium dry finish.
