Rogue Morimoto Black Obi Soba Ale

Posted by

This is certainly a unique brew. If you ever wondered what a cross between a Japanese extra-dry beer and an American medium malt ale tasted like, this is for you. While I wouldn’t call this astonishing, it certainly has a crispness that I really appreciate as highly food friendly, especially for sushi and sashimi, while also possessing a deeper complexity than standard Japanese beer. The malts bring more depth of flavour to the uber dry soba, and overall the combination produces a nicely balanced beer. Recommended with the appropriate food, but less so as a sipper.

Very Good
$8 at Liberty

    This sounds like a very interesting brew, indeed. Heres to hoping they have this the next time I go out for sushi. I also have heard from trusted sources that Vancouver has some of the best sushi around… congrats on that. 🙂

    Indeed it does. Amazing sushi is available for $10/person. My favourite sushi place feeds 2 + beer for $20 for top quality fresh fish. 🙂
