Tasting Notes: A rare treat for the adventurous, Kuro Kabuto Muroka Junmai Daiginjo is brewed using Black Koji (Kurokoji) instead of the usual Yellow Koji (Kikoji), contributing to a very unique and interesting flavor profile. The brewers forego the usual carbon filtration, allowing the natural qualities nurtured during brewing to remain, and send it straight to bottling for cold storage. Has a ripe strawberry field nose and a full body. It's flavor zips around the palate with a puckering, fruitlike acidity, refreshing the senses and engaging the mind.
