Tasting Notes:
In a limited convenience store release over the summer, Suntory created Master’s Dream Muroka. This ultra premium all malt beer was an unfiltered (muroka) version of its popular The Premium Malt’s Master’s Dream brew, stated to present a rounder sweetness only found straight out of the aging tanks.2016_suntory_masters_dream_muroka-3

Muroka pours a deep golden color in the glass with an aroma full of malt. The first gulp is thick and full, very malty and smooth with a slight tang to it. The mid-palate is quite round with a back-end that slides down the throat easily, however there is a bitter kick bites back of the tongue. Tones of some sweetness a hint of citrus are present.

Since this was a summer release, Master’s Dream Muroka is long gone from convenience store shelves. However, you may run across it on the internets.

    Had you kept this sitting around, waiting for the right moment to enjoy it?

      I wish it was that. I finally was able to get my hands on a bottle in late September (I delayed purchasing it when I first saw it), then drank it in early October. Things going on at work and home prevented me from publishing. Hopefully, I’ll get through my stash soon.
