rooting around my cellar I totally forgot about this brew

eyes...
some foam in the bottle but it is gone within 2 seconds in the glass, this still has some carbonation running through the glass but zero head, no lacing (obviously) but this certainly sticky in terms of the alcohol clinging up the glass, orange with burnt amber hue, this is as flat as an actual horizon, but hey even ugly girls need loving too...

nose...
honey booze, and some booze, and some more, almost drags you into whiskey-ville, a tart fruitiness is apparent, something like cherries, pretty subdued considering the weight

taste etc...
wow... that is some strong stuff, what might have been meek in the nose is an absolute flamethrowing beast in your throat, syrupy and thick, you do get the hint of sake flavor, really strange but enjoyable, this is such a strange brew, it really does taste like a hybrid of sake and ale, I could see this going great with some sushi as it has punch but is great as a sipper

verdict?
I like it, for something totally different for an occassion (a soire at your local sushi joint perhaps?) this is really good. best shared as this ABV is pretty crazy... good stuff, glad I stashed a few bottles

I was not expecting a lightly colored beer when I poured this, I thought it was going to be a stout. It is very clean and clear and resembles a brandy or whisky.

Very wonderful aroma. There is an abundance of fruit, some light like fermented pears and some dark like raisins.

The flavor is enjoyable but isn't perfect. The good sides include pear, apple, and caramel. The bad side is the presence of the alcohol in the flavor, it starts out like a ninja with almost no heat, but the heat present in the after taste builds through the beer and resembles vodka during the last few sips. Fortunately it doesn't detract from the fruit character.

There is a mild tingle, and a slightly syrupy feel. I think it is good.

Bottle courtesy of ygtbsm94. Served in a sampler glass. Pours a moderate amber color with a short head. Nose carries some of the sake yeast, which isn’t terribly tasty when paired with the underlying malt character. A bit of booze, though not excessive for the alcohol level. Very strange. Not a fan at all.
