jmgreenuk (7837) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - 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.

dutchtuga (146) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - FEB 14, 2014
Bottle. Beautiful color pours out of the bottle with a creamy light brown head. Taste is a little sweet, caramel is noticeable and also some nuts in the mix. Not a very powerful palate but a good beer nonetheless.

(Draught at Butcher’s Tears, Amsterdam, 28 Feb 2014) Dark reddish brown colour with brief, foamy, beige head. Malty, roasted nose with chocolate, caramel and roasted malt. Malty, roasted taste with notes of dark bread, caramel, chocolate, coffee and a balanced spicy bitterness in the finish. More than medium body, with a slight sweetness. Well balanced and quite tasty. Nice one.

Borresteijn (6495) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 21, 2013
On tap at the brewpub. I see this has been added, but I’m not sure if this really is a new beer. Dark brown colour, beige head. 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.
