Insanely good, really. Take the best elements of a good English bitter and add a distinctive wood element from the sake cask that enhances the nose and flavor profile with the yeast/buttery/biscuit characteristics that oak gives really fine white wines.
Bottle, 33cL. 8%. Shared by my dad. Thank you :) @Naintré & Home. A sparkling dark brown amber beer with a medium off-white foamy head ; medium retention. Biscuit, caramel (+), dried fruits (raisin), floral note. Medium round sweet warming, light spicy, bitter note. Medium body, light to medium oily texture, average carbonation, sweet caramel strong lasting finish. Overall, good ! sinfull (1675) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - AUG 7, 2017
Brown color. Thin off-white head. Aroma of malt , dark fruits, apples. Malty, sweet taste with fruity notes. Would have been great if not for Strange chemical bitterness at the end. ( spoiled bottle? , expired?)

La bière a comme référence la Rochefort. On goûte, le malt, la levure, caramel. Très bonne. Scipio (1111) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - JUN 14, 2017
Pours a dark amber or copper in color with a thin off white head. The aroma is enticing, although it isn’t very strong. It gives a sweeter impression, with caramel, raisin, yeast, and earthy malts. The advertised sake is faint. The taste is sweet and much more bitter than I was expecting. The flavors are balanced. Its still earthy, has floral hops, caramel, brown sugar, yeast, and spices. The sake is still detectable, but really comes through in the form of a heavy aftertaste. Light to medium in body, a very slick texture, and average carbonation. This is pretty good, though I’d move to something else after just one. YantarCoast (1403) - Moscow, RUSSIA - JUN 5, 2017
330ml bottle from Pinta's in Moscow. Pours dark brown with a medium-sized light brown head. Aroma is dried fruits, caramel, liquorice, sake. Taste is caramel, spices, quite heavy sweetness, notes of alcohol. colui72 (1054) - HONG KONG - JUN 3, 2017
Pours copper, fizzy with a large cream head and little lacing. Aroma is floral, berries, sweet malts. Taste is very malty and boozy, with some fruits and berries, candi sugar, dry bitter. Medium body, oily feel, soft carbonation, bitter finish, Tried it again after 2 years, same feeling of something missing. MeadWhisperer31 (27) - - MAY 4, 2017
Il y a comme un côté liquoreux, orangé qui confère à cette bière de type belge, un côté fort sympathique !
