skortila (4345) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - APR 5, 2014
Bottled. Full 33cl sample. The aroma has mostly caramel, some toast and grass. Clear, red-brown coloured beer with a slight off-white head. The taste is sweet, caramellic and ends a bit grassy hoppy. Slightly sticky start, though more dry in the end. Quite some carbonation, doesn’t go down too well; I like these kind of beers a bit more easy going.

caesar (4713) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAR 4, 2014
Bottled, dated 24/09/2013, large sample. Slight gushing, but spilled nothing. Then it poured an easy clear redbrown color with a medium lasting frothy off-white head. Aroma of caramel, slight roast, slight chocolate, bit spicy esters, bit sugary or molasses. Bit sweet in taste, burned caramel, slight metallic hint (touch of oxidation perhaps). Medium carbonation. Burned caramel gives it a sirupy feel, which is quickly washed away by the carbonation that is a bit too much, leaving a malty bitter finish. They havent quite convinced me yet, these Tears of the Butcher.

Benzai (6409) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - FEB 14, 2014
Bottle @ home. Clear brown color with a nice red glare coming through, medium sized beige to slightly brown head that leaves fair lacing. Smell malts, caramel, bread, nuts. Taste malts, caramel, lightly raisins, a bit sweet-bitter. Medium body and carbonation. Hmm somehow I find this one better than most dunkler bocks I’ve had.
