COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
PIZZA PORT BREWING とのコラボは、これになりました。 "SO SEXY BROWN" !!! 「ブラウンよりも黒いよね?」 そうかも。 っていうか、ぼくも仕込む前にそう思いました。 今回のコラボ、いつも「黄色か黒の。ドライなビールばかり」のぼくらとしては、モルトのレシピは、PIZZA PORT のアドバイスを受け入れることにしたのです。 マイクいわく、 「そう。でも、俺たちのブラウンはこんな感じなんだ。」 とのこと。 で、これです。 アルコール度数6%弱。 もちろん、ホップたっぷり。 なぜ、"So Sexy" なのかはまた書きますが、やっぱり自分たちだけでは出来上がらなかったビールになったと思います。

Bouteille 33cl, merci à KansaiBeerLvrs - Phil pour m’avoir présenté ce bel effort nippon.
De couleur brune foncée, col crémeux blanc-cassé.
Arôme offre un bouquet malté grillé assez plaisant, retrouve des effluves houblonnées en rétro-nasal et qui laissent s’échapper des notes d’agrumes. Le tout reste axé sur un savant mélange alternant cara pâle, grillé, et fruité.
Palais est ici aussi porté sur une base malt modéré mais offrant de belles notes de grillé, caramel avec une amertume rappelant les houblons type C américains. Le tout penche plus vers une inspiration type Black IPA dont le fini agrumes voire citronnelle sont agréables. L’effervescence demeure moyenne-haute avec sur la fin une petite pointe herbacée qui relève l’amertume.

Draught at Keyaki. Rich brown body, plenty of toffee, some dried fruit, lingering pine/floral hoppiness, touch of pepper, dry bitter finish. Great stuff from a outstanding brewer combo.

mrjez (679) - Osaka, JAPAN - JUN 9, 2015
On tap at Eni-Bru/2nd Vine.
L: pours a dark murky brown, a little highlight around the edges, attractive frothy head that hugs the glass.
A: lovely hop front, some caramel notes beneath.
T: strong hop presence, a little more variety would have been nice, pretty straightforward on the palate.
F: a nice bitter ending, the malts run smooth over the tongue, very effervescent.
O: very enjoyable, a big hop treat, quite IPA in style but with definite brown ale qualities.

KansaiBeerLvrs (5388) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUN 6, 2015
On tap at the Shirokita Park Fest. So sexy brown is a pizza port & Shiga Kogen collaboration brew. It pours a deep matte brown with a dank pine hop bouquet complemented with some chocolate notes. Medium bodied with a bitter slightly mouth puckering finish. The taste is hop forward with just mild roasty chocolate notes peeking through. Quite good, is this supposed to be a Black IPA?
