It has been a while since I have had this beer, but I've had it three times and remember it with some clarity. The first time I had it I bought it new and opened it right away. That sample had no carbonation at all and a very sharp unpleasant flavor of soy sauce and maybe fermented black beans with a metallic finish. The mouthfeel was syrupy and do to its sharpness and high alcohol it really lacked any drinkability. I was only able to finish the bottle by splitting it with my roommate. Very dissapointing. I had heard that aging would solve some of these issues, so I aged one bottle for 3 years and another for five. I'm sorry to say there was no real improvement. The acidity had softened a little in each bottle, but the overwhelming flavor of fermented legumes/soy was still present. Perhaps the metallic taste on the finish had dissappeared and it was a little creamier and less syrupy, especially on the 5 year old bottle. Overall, though, still pretty unpleasant. That ended my experimentation with this departed, unlamented brew.

Shared this with BPK59 at his birthday party. A fun tick. This was 1995 vintage. Of course Ben broke the cork off and in to the bottle...hah!
A - Poured in to a small snifter a motor oil thick dark dark brown nearly black hue with some really incredible legs.
S - Aromas of sweeter malts, salty brine, soy sauce.
T - Taste is even worse than the nose. Loads of sticky sweet malts, salty sweet soy sauce. Ugh
M - Mouthfeel is heavy and syrupy
O - Overall this was a soy bomb. I guess this beer truly is russian roulette, as some bottles are incredible and others are just plain drain pour. Still, glad I got to try it!
