lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 18, 2012
This was an odd duck, light in color, with a bland malt profile. The flavor was both non-descript and slightly offensive. I don’t know what was going on here.

diabel (1622) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - FEB 10, 2012
Amber body with an off-white head. Hoppy aroma with some caramalts and a smokey touch: quite well balanced. Smokey, bit malty flavour.

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - FEB 9, 2012
Bottle @ RBBWG thanks to Benzai. hazy amber coloured beer with some medium carbonation and a medium off white head. Hoppy hinted aroma with some slightly roasted woody malty hints. Medium to full palate. Finish is herby yeasty with some oaky acidic hints. Very nice.

Ok ok, tutto molto bello e si beve che è un piacere. Si, ma il torbato chi l’ha sentito?

Martinus (3568) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - JAN 30, 2012
Reddish amber, off-white head. Aroma of malts, leather, sweet nuts, some light hops. Malty flavour, caramel, sweetish combined with light sour tones. Some wood and yeast. Finish astringent, some vanilla and caramel.
(From 75cL bottle @ RBBWG 2012, Antwerpen. Thanks for sharing, Benzai!)

77ships (5036) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JAN 28, 2012
750 cl. bottle sampled @ RBWG 2012 – thx to Benzai – amber with a white head, smells of nutty malts with a dash of hops, taste is not particularly distinctive or impressive caramel hops, some slight brown sugar, slight roast, medium bitterness, light hops, odd smokiness running through it, creeps a little bit up in the aftertaste, medium carb. & body, ok, certainly not bad but not particularly impressive either

Benzai (9779) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JAN 16, 2012
Sampled @ RBBWG Antwerpen. Hazy dark copper, small white head. Smell malts, some alcohol. Taste malts, a little yeast, caramel and some hops. Average carbo, medium body.

sebletitje (7473) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JAN 15, 2012
75cl bottle @ RBBWG 2012, Antwerpen courtesy of Benzai. Cuivrée, col beige épais. Bière étrange dans son style qui se veut de type ’barley wine’ et en fait reste plus dominé par un malt fumé assez agréable. Le palais est donc divisé entre les caractéristiques d’un barley anglais laissant une fin note amer et citronnée/fruité suivi d’un malt caramel et fumé. Garde une présence belge dans la levure.

brokensail (12498) - Orange County, California, USA - DEC 23, 2011
Amber in color with a white head. A weird smokey aroma to go with lightly tart citrus notes. A bit of plastic, some light honey notes, maybe a bit of sweetness. Intensely smokey. Bleach, maybe some plastic, peat, and just not good.

badgerben (4576) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - NOV 24, 2011
Skyview V, 11/11/11. Courtesy of JK. Hazy tan color with a small head. Slight nutty aroma. Strong malt flavor. A little dusty taste and mouthfeel. Almost smoky.
