caesar (4946) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - APR 29, 2014
Bottled from speciaalbierpakket, dated 23/10/2013, large sample. Slight hazy copper color, short frothy head. Aroma of caramel malt, toffee, bit toast, hint of roast, some green tea. Bit biscuity sweetness, slight hint of alcohol, bit bitter. Really has that english strong ale feel to it, together with a slight spicy and chocolatey belgian note. Decent complexity. Nice beer.

Aroma of roasted malts, toast, chocolate, some liqourice, hint of berries. Flavour is medium-sweet, malty, roast, toast, chocolate, light fruity, nice roasted bitter finish. Medium-bodied.

jmgreenuk (4066) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 4, 2013
Bottle from ABC Beers, Den Haag. Poured a dark mahogany with a frothy broken off-white head. The aroma is of yeast, a little raisin and some smoke too. The flavour is medium sweet light bitter with a spicy hop smokey palate and a long bitter finish. One of the best beers I’ve had from Butchers Tears. Nicely balanced and very drinkable.

On tap at the brewpub. Deep brown pour with thin foamy head. Aroma of caramel, light peat notes, burnt toast and a hint of licorice, kind of spicy. Taste is sweet with a spicy finish, mild fruity alcohol flavor. Palate is med-full bodied with light carbonation. Nice brew.
