Benzai (16917) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - DEC 28, 2014
Bottle @ home. Almost opaque hazy reddish color, small off-white head. Aroma is malts, a hint of sweetness, lightly alcohol, grapes and fermenting fruits. Taste malts, sweetness, alcohol, very ripe and overripe fruits. Decent body, average to medium carbonation. Quite disappointing actually. Rammer (397) - Moscow, RUSSIA - DEC 28, 2014
The aroma of sake and a rich dense taste. How to drink beer liquor! Very sweet. I like this! Blade86 (1427) - Wroc³aw, POLAND - DEC 16, 2014
dried fruits, yeasty, some caramel, maybe rice, floral, alcohol; dirty brownish color, hazy, just a thin ring of foam; high sweetness, medium(+) bitterness; full body, thick and oily feel, some alcohol warmness, soft carbonation, long bittersweet finish;
Overall: complex aroma, rich in taste, great palate, fantastic packing eluosiren (131) - Moscow, RUSSIA - DEC 11, 2014
This beer is like a bomb! It detonates in your mouth as nitroglycerine! It’s strong, it’s heavy, it’s cool!! ShaneJ (903) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 24, 2014
Bottle from Beer Cartel (April 2014). Murky mid-brown, zero head, some visible yeast clumps, earthy, musty, intense caramel/chocolate, liqueur-soaked prunes, dense fruit cake, alcohol warmth, slick, syrupy texture. Not my thing.

Bottle beautifully wrapped in red tissue paper and packed in a tin red box. Surprising cloudy brown colour. Smell of litchee, of smoke, of miso. Dry and light as sake in the beginning. Marked sweetness, umami taste. Just love it. BitchPls (821) - FINLAND - NOV 7, 2014
Brown beer with a minimal head and floating flakes of yeast.Intense caramel and dried and ripe fruits on the nose.Medium sweet, earth, mould, ash, dried fruits, light sourness. Medium body, light carbonation. Weird at first but this is actually a really good and interesting beer. mcberko (19805) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 20, 2014
250mL bottle, pours a very muddy, murky reddish brown with a miniscule head. Nose brings out notes of oxidation, liqueur, caramel and candied dark fruits -- I guess I get some sake yeast in there, but that could be confirmation bias. Flavour is rich and sweet, with caramel, sugary sweet fruitiness, and muddy yeast. There is a bit of a liqueur-like ABV burn on the finish, but it’s nothing overbearing. The sweetness is a bit too much for me and the palate is too yeasty. Nice attempt, but needs tweaking. Geokkjer (7663) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 3, 2014
Bottle. Pours deep golden with a tiny off-white head. Aroma of malt, bred, yeast, slight minty note and caramel. Flavor is sweet and malty with some warming notes, caramel, yeast and nuts. Medium to full body, soft carbonation. Travlr (26406) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - SEP 7, 2014
Draft at Churchkey. Hazy amber brown color. Aroma of lightly spiced butterscotch. Taste is very sweet cotton candy and caramel.
