Purchased from the Seibu department store in Ikebukuro, poured into a 378ml glass goblet. I was so excited to try this brew, and it met every expectation and went beyond. The color is a beautiful dark hue that is 99% opaque except for a brilliant burgundy rim that appears if you hold it up to a light source. The scent was deep and nose-warming, and when I took it into my mouth, immediate sensations of dark berries and cherries took over. The swallow was accompanied by a flash of heat in my cheeks and throat, evidence of the 11.3% alcohol level. However, nothing painful about it... just concocted bliss. Half way done with the bottle, I enjoyed the changing flavors as it casually warmed in the room. I might have started it off too cold, or maybe the alcohol was affecting me, but I noticed as I drank and as it got warmer, the taste improved even more. I didn't serve it very cold, just maybe 20 minutes in the fridge after I returned home. Anyway, enough of this whole sexual experience I had with this brew. If I had three thumbs, they would all be up for this wonderful drink.
