dark brown color, roasty character in nose but mouth is fairly
Muted. A bit of dark fruit monsterc (13) - Illinois, USA - APR 9, 2011
Bottle poured brown with a huge thick creamy head that lasted the entire beer. Sweet malty hops aroma. Flavor is creamy malts, a very good beer! Vas (64) - NEW ZEALAND - JAN 21, 2011
Hand pump @ Hashigo Zake. Dark Copper/Brown, looow carbonation and a whisp of off-white head. Surprisingly little aroma, some caramel and malty goodness. Wonderfully smooth and creamy texture. Roasted, brown sugar, toffee and fruit bread flavours. Round and full in the mouth but drinkable, oh so drinkable. Never guess it was 5.9%.

On beer engine at Hashigo zake
Opens like a mouthful of caramel pop corn, loverly brown-reddish colour and clear, malty yeasty nose, not at all carbonated but good body and nice malty aftertaste.
Nicely complex. TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 18, 2010
On handpull at the brewpub. A sessionable Old Ale - is there such a thing. Toasted malt and caramel flavours. Greta smooth palate.

Tap. Nice beer. Sweet aromas of cola, and caramel. Taste is sweet, with good length. Palate is velvety, with a medium body. Brown, with a head that doesn’t last. Ungstrup (38140) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 22, 2010
Draft. A red-brown beer with a thin beige head. The aroma has notes of butterscotch as well as lighter notes of alcohol and malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, butterscotch, and alcohol., DonBirnam (108) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 9, 2010
Extremely dark with slight brown-red tinge. Very slight fruity-chocolate aroma. Dark fruit flavour with a hint of bready and coffee malt on the tail end. Very smooth and surprisingly refreshing. Quite festive too. eczematic (1325) - Adelaide, AUSTRALIA - DEC 28, 2009
plenty of character here. vanilla, chocolate fudge aroma, nutty, toasty and full bodied, with a long salty and grainy finish. good stuff, but not the equal of the emersons porter on cask. mickmac (488) - Ngunnawal, AUSTRALIA - NOV 21, 2009
Tap. A lasting small tan head over a clear black body. A sweet malt aroma and taste of wood, coffee and berries. Warming and full bodied.
