Little 7oz. bottle, as an "omake" (freebie) from Asahiya. Sweetened prunes, raisins, some fumes. Thick hazy dark amber color, little head, good lace. Creamy sweet malt / little change in mid/ well-balanced throughout and in finish. Medium body. Quite good, but curiously inert. Has a smooth layer of warming and syrupy sweetness.

Bottle. Love the tiny bottle this came in. This was one of the more interesting beers I've had. Tons of flavors behind the bitterness, but the bite is a bit too aggressive to enjoy all of those flavors, which is a shame. KansaiBeerLvrs (5305) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAY 19, 2013
It’s a bottle I got at Asahiya. I love these tiny 7 oz bottles. Honestly, I’d rather buy a 3-pack of these rather than a 22oz bomber. This size is perfect for sipping high-ABV beers on your own... It pours a great amber brown with a thin beige head and a huge wafting aroma of malty caramel which is mouth watering. The taste is rich, toffee, caramel malt goodness with a crisp bitter finish. Very nice. magsinva (1423) - Virginia, USA - MAY 6, 2013
Bottle - aroma is bourbony with some sweetness. Taste is a little boozy with some smokiness. Overall, pretty good. GRM (4145) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - APR 25, 2013

XS bottle into a tulip. Deep amber without much of a head. No lacing. Aroma is sweet malts. Taste is meaty, chunky, sweet malts. Slight hop bite that helps balance things out. Not bad. Not noteable. Aniela (4216) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 29, 2013
Bottle in NYC sept 2012. Yellow/brownish muddy beer with a small offwhite head. Fruity and malty aroma. Alcohol flavour that really takes over. Some dark fruit notes maybe... Lemke10 (993) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 24, 2013
Pours a hazy medium brown color with a decent lasting head. Scent has a mixture of semi-sweet malts and bitter hops. Taste is rather smooth and mild and works it’s way to a bold ending. Has a smooth caramel taste that ends in a dry sightly bitter taste. Very well made and tasty I just can’t understand why they put such a good tasting beer in only a 7oz bottle. Definitely worth trying!

Bottle. Pours a hazy ruby amber with a small beigh head. Sweet fruity malty aroma with caramel and pine. Flavor was lighty sweet & mildly bitter with caramel, fruit, pine and alcohol. braznadian (59) - Washington, USA - DEC 12, 2012
Got a 10oz bottle from specialty shop. Pours an amber deep reddish hue with minimal head. Fairly hazy. Aromas of sweet caramel and dough, alcohol too. Quite sweet and malty, caught me off guard. Good dose of bitterness too, but not as I expected. I think it’s probably quite bitter but the level of sweetness brings it back a bit. Lively carbonation. Good medium body. Very good beer, just not what I expected.
