Hitachino Nest Beer XH

Another beer recommended to me by the guys at CBX was the Sake Barrel Aged Hitachino Nest Egg XH.  This beer was great.  It’s an American Strong Ale that’s been aged in sake casks.  The caramel and toffee characteristics common in the style of beer are there, but are complimented by a sour orange sweetness that rounds it out perhaps from sitting in the sake cask.  It was interesting to see style come from a Japanese brewery.  I would definitely have one again.
