Purchased from Camp Hansen Shoppette, Okinawa, Japan.

A - Pours a solid brown ale showcasing two fingers of creamy head

S - Malts, river water, and brown sugar on the nose

T - A deep, rich, mosaic of spice and bready malts, semi sweet with a dry backing

B - Full, warming, and chewy, with tons of small creamy carbonation

Overall not a bad Bruin I would appreciate a little more sweetness but it does the trick for what I wanted today.

Okay beer, a bit more on the malty side rather than yeasty (bread). Small sting of alcohol in it. Not thick and syrupy. Not my favourite trappist.
