Yeah, yeah.. I know.. I've left this beer in the fridge for more than a year. Poured into my straight sided Wieckse Witte glass. Shows up a startingly clear red brown with a large whitish head the volumes above the glass and actually holds in place for quite a while before the lips comes into disturb it.

Aromas are of plums, cinnamon, burnt brown sugar, ginger and horehound.

A long lasting carbonation helps hold the head up in such a way as to promulgate a metallic flavor from the head.

Flavors reflect the slightly metallic aroma and flavor of the head with an extra large caramel flavor that's controlled both by the CO2 and the available spciness. Yeast? Kettle Dunno..

Overall, probably a better beer closer to the release date, but hey.. It's still a tast beer with an interesting vision (we hope) of the Japanese beer markey.

Pours a medium brown color with a huge head that has good retention and leaves lots of lacing on the glass. The aroma is very good for the style. Lots of dark fruits (raisins, plums) and alcohol and some sweetness - very intense aromas. The flavor is not what I expected. Much thicker than expected. The dark fruits are very prominent, but they are melded with some dark malts, possibly some chocolate malt. Very well blended. The alcohol is there only with its warming character toward the end. Very nice flavor. The mouthfeel is borderline thick and the drinkability is very good for the high alcohol.

Dark orange russet hued pour with plenty of suspended particles floating around topped off with a mountainous beige head cap that took about five minutes to settle. Lattice lace was already left before the first sip. 11.2 oz stubby browner.

Exceptionally bold scents of fresh oranges and spices of nutmeg and cinnamon. (Reminds me in the nose of local Barley Creek Super Hop.)

First swigs: Dark chocolate like malts in the forefront. Brown sugar and molasses sweetness. Biscuit malty chewy bready flavors make up most of the palate here. 9.0 % ABV is not at all detected until the end once warmed. Overall, loads of fresh oranges await at each turn spotted with alternative flavors of ginger spices, and yogurt like milkyness. Quite a complex brew with endless flavors.

Full bodied and thick with sediment. Quite a dessert like brew with an effervescent rolling carbonation.

Last swigs: Sip after sip of orange sherbert fresh ginger and coriander. Although an eisbock, this seems like a spiced ale actually. Thanks to PopeDX for this bottle.
Beer is good. Happy beering.

Pours a deep copper/amber with a slight haze with a big fluffy off white head that settles to a nice creamy mass,aromas of green apple brown sugar with a light smokiness in ther as well.There is so much going on flavor wise its hard to put a finger on everything,I get some juicy orange and some spice like nutmeg and cloves some pepper in there like others have notes as well.The sharp prickly mouthfeel is not so great but Iam sure as it ages it might round out better.I think this one would only get better after putting up for awhile its big and in your face as is.

My publican saved a bottle of this brew for me from his latest "find". I am eternally grateful. The label lists spices used: coriander, orange peel, nutmeg, cinnamon & vanilla beans. My mouth was watering before I even smelled it.
Pours a beautiful, hazy dark red with a touch of orange and noticeable "depth", like a truly great paint job on Ferrari. A big, fluffy, creamy head that stays forever and leaves massive amounts of lace coating the glass.
Smell is rich, decadently filling my nose. Spices all over, as expected, especially nutmeg and vanilla, some cinnamon, fruit ( orange, green grapes and green apple), roasted malt, a hint of smoke and light hops. A slight bite of the hop up front, mainly on the tip of the tongue then the flavors just roll all over the tongue, filling every nook and cranny of the mouth. Hints of dark chocolate and vanilla linger in the aftertaste. Amazingly complex and perfectly balanced.
Mouthfeel is smoooth with a capital Smoo! Creamy, rich, lightly warming mouth and throat, full-bodied.
Drinkability: if you don't drink this when the opportunity arises, you will do yourself an unbelieveable disservice. An absolute "must-drink" beer.

Wow, this beer explodes - I served it in a snifter and the head quickly exploded over the top. The head does relax a little but stays nice and thick throughout with a slightly tan color.

The smell is amazing - a nice stong grapefruit and peach aroma.

The taste is not quite as nice. The color is a dark brown. I expected much more malt characters but there was very little to be found. It has a sour flavor which is nice but a little over whelming after a few sips. Very little hop bitterness. It leaves you with a sour sticky finish in the mouth.

Overall, a nice beer but I was expecting more from one of my favorite breweries.

The color is hazy copper with a good-sized, light brown head. The smell is spicy, with corriander and orange peels popping out. The taste is equally as spicy as the aroma. A peppery wood taste is joined by light touches of orange and other spices. A light sweetness is noted too, a combination of the cinnamon and nutmeg. The 9% ABV is not noted in the flavor at all. Different tastes hit every part of my tongue, each with different spices jumping out. Wow, this is very complex and interesting making it hard to adequately describe. Lots of respect to Kiuchi for making such an experimental brew.

What a pleasant surprise to find this one stashed away in my cellar.
Appearance: Whoa! Better be careful with the pour on this one, it's a foam monster with half beer and half foam on the initial pour into a tulip glass. Body is a cloudy apricot color with an immense beige head that relaxes but never fades away. The pitted head eventually gives way to profuse sticky lace all over the glass.

Aroma: Deep and complex sweet malty notes are everywhere, with caramel, toffee, molasses, rum soaked figs and raisins, and spiced prunes. The spiced prunes lead into an array of spices that suggest orangerind, coriander, and black pepper. Quite interesting.

Mouthfeel: Medium full to full bodied with highly charged carbonation.

Taste: Malty sweet, with dark fruits and spices. Maple syrup, toffee, caramel, overripe banana, rum drenched raisins and figs, and a prominent spicy component mingle together nicely. Bitter hops are dry and herbal, balancing the sweet maltiness well. Alcohol is apparent, but is folded into the malt, hop, and spice complexity very well. The fizzy carbonation seems to swirl all the flavors together in a very well fashioned manner. Sweet toffee malt, followed by bitter herbal hops comprise the finish.

Drinkability: Very impressive Eisbock from this always intriguing, Japanese brewery. This is one of their better offerings, and is really an adventure to enjoy and sort through all its nuances. Lots of complexity allows the high abv to sneak up on you, but this one is a lot of fun to enjoy.

The beer pours a cloudy dark amber color with a thick frothy tan head that slowly fades to lacing. There are lots of suspended yeast floaties. The aroma is great. It has a rich, malty scent that boasts of pale and crystal malts along with a kick ass spice aroma. It's full of nutmeg, orange peel, cinnamon, and ginger; very nice. The taste is good. It has a refreshing spice flavor that is balanced with a solid malt base and hops. It has a strong nutmeg flavor that goes down easy and finishes bitter from the orange peel. The mouthfeel is decent. It is a medium/full bodied beer with a little too much carbonation. This is a damn good celebration ale. It has awesome spice content; a good drinker.

Appearance: After a very noisy bottle opening, I knew I would have to take care in pouring this beer. Even with a gentle pour I got a huge beige fluffy head atop a cloudy rust-colored liquid, with a bit of yeast dripping into the foam on the tail end of the pour. The head persisted throughout the long time I nursed this high ABV beer.

Smell: Loads of sweet caramel malt, obvious alcohol, and a bunch of spices - orange, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla

Taste: Lots of alcoholic warmth throughout - starts out with the sweet and flavorful caramel malt and the spices; the middle has that Belgian funkiness and then finishes with some hoppy bitterness and a return of the sweet malts - a whole lot going on in one sip

Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied with a lot of fizzy carbonation

Drinkability: Terrific beer in so many ways but I would prefer just a touch less carbonation - but I feel that way about a number of Belgian style beers.

I enjoyed the hell out of the 2004 so why not give the 05' a whirl. Well lets see here, a cloud of crimson orange for body color. Head is sizable and smoothly frothed and displaying a firm staying power. The cap color remains consistent of a dusty yellowed cream and the lacing adequately sticks in heavy strings and some dusty sheeting.

Aroma is soft of dry balsam, masonite, cardboard and even some wood glue. Did I just open my model airplane kit? Hints of phenolic pepper and corriander kinda creep through, but overall much softer and lighter then I was hoping.

Taste is down right nice though. Another complex and subtle play of soft spice, softer fruits, and layered wood. A fun interplay of dryish woody things bring out some soft pine and various craft woods. Fruits of a drying nature lurk around every corner, kinda like dried or baked grapes but not in a raisiny sense. There's a nice underseige of pepper and phenols that actually maintain a unique and very pleasant softness on the palete. Finishes with hintings to dried dates and figs, a slight touch of pineapple, dustings of cocoa and somekind of nuttyness, walnut maybe? And some pie crust and leftover powdering of wood dust.
Overall: softly and uniquely dry. I like it. Little fruity burbs too.

Feel is about medium with a very easy and soft palate of drying and smooth carbonation. Simple, delicate, and fairly well rounded within its drying character.

Not quite up to par with the 2004, which was a favorite of mine to have around til I couldn't find it anymore. But this is still a pretty nice little beer and wouldn't pass it up for nothin'.

I loved the 2004.
The 2005 pours out a light red oaky copper haze. A generous off-white head appears, with fine carbonation which fades slowly, leaving decent lace.
The nose is spicy and citric at first, with sweet roasted malt, leather, cinnamon and nutmeg.
The flavor has a tart start, hops folow, then round biscuity malt, and the bitterness returns at the end. Vanilla appears in the nose and the mouth after a bit. The mouthfeel is super creamy and luscious. The hops hits the back of your throat at the finish, along with the first suggestion of the high alcohol. Nice balance. Complex but organized. Really nice.

$3.99 11.2oz bottle.

Super cool label on this beer with a true japanese influence. This beer pours out a wicked fluffy white head into my duvel tulip. The body is a very cloudy brown leather with an orange backbone. The smell is like a kick in the face full of super sweet malt. The taste is like a sweet molasses burst in your mouth. I can pick up the burnt orange and cinnamon in this beer. The heavy lacing stuck around until the end. This one has a dangerous, well hidden, abv in it. Excellent beer and I am excited to try others from this brewery. Hail to the land of the rising sun!

Poured a deep orange-brown with an explosive head, puffy and thick and way carbonated. Had a sweet malty sugary smell, with tangerine, caramel, orange peel and clove flavors that mix with some lemony hops in the finish. Sugary and fizzy mouthfeel, a bit too syrupy sweet and fizzy to make it as drinkable as I would like, but still wuite good. I think this one would benefit from a couple more years on the shelf, will have to grab another and see what it's like in 2007.

This beer pours a super hazy orange color with a large highly carbonated head. Aroma is strong on the sweet orange flavor and a sweet malty alcohol hit then a whole bunch of spices. This beer is packed with spices. Too many to name but here's what I got: sweet and bitter orange, cinammon, vanilla, cloves, coriander, and nutmeg. These spices were strong and unique but didn't really blend together much. The body was medium and creamy with an adjunct rice flavor base. A good hit of alcohol subdued the spices a bit and warmed my belly. The finish is dry but I'm getting a lot of fusel alcohol esters in there. This beer has a lot of promise and I think in about 6 months to a year it will be really good. However, right now it's on the rough side and a bit too young. Once to spices work with each other and the alcohol flavor goes down a little this will be great. Still, this was one unique beer experience.

Poured a hazy, orange-amber color. This beer has a big malt-accented and caramel sugary aroma that reminds me of Belgian Tripel. My nose has to search for the spices described on the label. Fairly full-bodied for a Japanese beer, yet very fizzy. The spices are subdued at first, but get brighter as the beer warms up. The cinnamon dries out the tongue in a bit of an unpleasant way. This effect is accented by a dry finish. A complicated spicy brew that I would like to try again, even thoug the I thought it to be a little pricey at $4 an 11-ounce bottle.

Gathered small twigs and leaves for padding with this one on 2/1/2005. 11.2 fl. oz. bottle poured in a shaker.

Kind of a loose, cavernous, Pitfall Harry look to head. Hazy orange hue with a great deal of action; impossible to see through. Orange peel predominates on the nose with some soluble white pepper and a mustard flash. Grock of tart lemon rind shredding that puckers the lips and crosses the eyes; after a time, tongue and mouth become accustomed, or numbed, to this and other aspects pull through – a smart hop bite, some light wasabi heat, and almost a rubbery taste. Mouth cringes at first with this one, but eventually things settle with a crisp alcohol sting. Not for the uninitiated.

11.2 oz bottle obtained from John's Grocery (Iowa City) in Feb 2005 and consumed a couple days later. Huge hiss when I opened the bottle, so I poured as gentle as possible, but still got a 7-finger head from just half of the bottle. A light beige head over the orange liquid...cloudy, even though I'm sure the yeast sediment was retained in the bottle (of which there is a bunch of). Smells enticing. Orange and spicy, with some gentler tones of caramel and vanilla. Starts sweet with notiable alcohol playing strongly over orange, coriander, and a belgian-like yeasty funk. Has a caramel and lightly toffee flavor...any bock character is buried beneath the spicing. Strong wet sugar and some fruity esters do rise barely above the spices. Medium-thick and creamy-smooth mouthfeel and, amazingly, the carbonation is moderate. It forms fine acrid bubbles that dances with the alcohol burn. Couldn't help but get some sediment in the beer now that I've poured the second half in...but the foaming is only about half as bad as the first half of the bottle. The small amount of yeast in the beer definitely does not help the flavor as it flattens some of the fruity character and amplifies the funk and acrid. What the heck, this beer is already goes the rest of the yeast. It's now a muddy chocolatey appearance of it's former self. Even the head (which is still 3-fingers) is darker... a full-fledged tan. Yeast is more prevalent in the smells. Taste...this is an entirely different beer from the very frist sip. Better than with a smidge of the sediment in the glass. The spicing is more subdued and overall the beer is flatter and more earthy. Still very sweet though. It ends now with a milder alcohol that mixes with noticable caramel/toffee. No lacing and, damn, I've got a buzz off of one beer (am I back in Jr. High again?). 9%...I'll bet it's more. I'm glad I tried it, this was definitely a challenging beer, but I'm not interest in trying it again. So...I'm not going to judge this as an eisbock (as it is presently categorized her on BA), but as a spiced beer. Too bad about the excessively foamy head and clouody liquid, it could have scored much higher.

Deep amber with crispy, honeywhite-colored foam on top.
Deep, malty, sweetly spicy aromas conjure images of palm, chicken broth, vanilla and cake.
The attack is jarring : unpeeled, raw bitterness introduces flavors of caramelized tropical fruits and woody resins. Burned toast, butterscotch and roasted fibers ornament a surging, alcoholic mass. Woody, vegetal tannins occupy one side of a clash with sticky, candied caramel alcohol.
With time in the bottle this could prove to be a treat. Now, it is a challenge.

Pours a dark hazy amber with a huge light tan head leaves good coating of lace. Only my 2nd Hitachino Nest brew but both have had huge heads lots of carbontation but not overly so in the feel.
Aroma is spice cinammon, orange, hints of nutmeg some malt comes thru but spices dominate.
Taste is also spice cinammon, nutmeg, hints of orange rind and vanilla riding on top of malt base that has some caramel present. Finishes with peppery coriander and some hops adding bitterness.
Taste is pretty good just a little to much spice for me.
Mouthfeel is a little light of medium spices just don't add much body .
Drinkability is good not a bad little beer, if you love spicey beers this one is for you. My bottle had 2004 on it but it was the spiced version 2005 for sure, not the eisbock of 2004.

My first Eisbock. My first Japanese micro.

Stubby 11.2 oz bottle with a bunch of crazy Hello Kitty Japanese crap written all over it. Creepy owl on the cap, which, when pulled off, made a noise like a very small jet engine taking off. The steam coming out looks like smoke. Strange.

This is the biggest, most uncontrollable head I've ever seen. The bottom of the beer eventually starts to look like dark cider.

Smells like dull fruits aplenty along with a harsh, zippy brandywine odor. Big malt in there, too.

Sweet as honey. Raisins upfront with sugar malt and alcohol. Alcohol in the back, along with more fruit and hops. Dry, zippy aftertaste. Almost too sweet. Hints of spices in the back go a long way to kill the sweetness.

The candy sweetness of this little brew pretty much makes it an occasional beer by default, I couldn't see myself having too many of these at once. It'd make a great desert drink, though.

I dunno, this beer is really complex and very pretty, I'm just not all that much into sweet brews.

12/28/04- Purchased at Plumpjack Wines in San Francisco, CA

Presentation- 12 oz stubby bottle with no expiration date. Poured into my Maredsous chalice.

Appearance- Absoultely gigantomongous billowy head that I literally had to scoop out part of it so I could hit it in the glass. Nice brown amber pour and nice lacing.

Smell- Very very sweet fruity smell. Mostly raisins.

Taste- Geez, am I drinking a prune cocktail here? HUGE prune and raisin taste. Actually they taste like they have been pickled in alcohol. Deep sweet dark grape taste also. Maybe a tad of cinnimon and vanilla in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel- Very heavy tasting beer. Lightly carbonated to the taste.

Drinkability- This is going to be a Christmas regualr try. Only once a year though. Not sure if prunes and I get along to well. Damn interesting though. Pick one up for a new experience.

Appearance – For a high ABV beer this thing has a monster head. It came up huge on an easy pour and went down slowly. The body is a thick, dark, deep orange in color.

Smell – Oh, man, this is a monster. This is more like a heavy-duty Barley Wine than an Eisbock. Either way you cut it, this is a big ‘un.

The huge malt and wine notes are just soaked in alcohol. The big fruits are juicy sweet and very inviting. The chewing tobacco juice almost oozes from the glass. Overall, a seriously big nose with lots of promise.

Taste – Man is this big. The malts are soaked in sugar and alcohol with strong grape notes and, again, lots of chewing tobacco juice. The dark fruits are enormous. I especially like tasting the booze-soaked raisins, but there are plenty others to choose from.

I can also pick up some bready yeast as unbelievable as that sounds. This is the “kitchen sink” of Japanese beers, that’s for sure.

Mouthfeel – This one is full-bodied and very entertaining. Everything from sharp booze to sugary grapes to some dry spicing to a tingly yeast mouth are to be found here.

Drinkability – You have to try this “full effect” beer just to say you’ve had it. It is a wild ride.

Wow!! This is one crazy beer. I hate to give out a 5 but I have to --its as pretty as you get for this style. Unfortunately, it goes downhill from here:

Smell is strong alchol, barleywine-type smell. I don't care for it but it is hitting the style right on the nose, I still have to score it low. very hard to drink. All the nice holiday spices are weak compared to the alcohol esters. This is the worst beer from Hitachino to date.

Poured from a stubby 12oz bottle like the one pictured, the 2004 vintage, now nearly a year old, erupted from the bottle into my waiting glass. Even a gentle pour produced a mammoth frothy vanilla colored head that towered over a dark brown brew. The thick head lasted quite a while before settling down to a thick skim which left chunky lace in its wake.
The nose was heavily malty with a buttery undercurrent. Then on came a parade of spices and fruit aromas: nutmeg, vanilla, coriander, cinnamon and candied plums. Despite the listed 9.0% ABV, the alcohol notes were muted. Some light herbal hops notes were also detected.
Each sip yielded a sizzling zip to the tongue thanks to the lively carbonation. Heavily sweet with a fruitcake-like taste of candied fruit, nuts and bready malt before a hearty blast of nutmeg rolled up on the palate. A touch of buttery toffee flavor also briefly played across the palate. More spices followed, each delivering a surge of flavor before waning, like ocean waves hitting the beach. The nutmeg and coriander flavors were the most potent of all and left a residual bite at the very back of the tongue. The herbal hops taste rose the the surface as each sip was swallowed and the alcohol left a mild warmth in the throat. The feel was medium in body, dry, and slightly creamy.
Overall, my guess is this brew might have gotten a little long in the tooth to be truly exceptional. Nevertheless, it is a nicely complex beer that displays a wide breadth of tastes and aromas.
