Wittales (611) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAR 11, 2014
Appearance was cloudy black with tiny tan diminishing head, no lacing. Aromas are nutmeg, cinnimon, leather, all spice with hints of vanilla, musky hops, no alcohol. Taste are chocolate, biscuit, pale malt upfront then nutmeg and allspice with earthy hops. Palate was soft smooth CO2 with medium-full body, lasting leathery spicy malty finish. A strange brew, it might have an infection:(

mmahut (900) - CZECH REPUBLIC - MAR 11, 2014
Pours in dark body with tan medium head. Aroma is spicy, christmas spicy, cloves, some cinnamon and vanilla, earthy, pine. Taste has a lot of spicy sweetness upfront, loaded with clove, almost astringent from it, some of it goes into the light earthy bitterness, cigar tobacco in the after taste. Interesting balance. Body is medium, no carbonation. Iím not really sure if I like it or not.

Benzai (7219) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - MAR 1, 2014
Draught @ Beer Temple. Opaque brown to black color, medium sized white head. Aroma is overpowering spicyness. Dear me. Taste malts, loads of spicea again, but somehow theyíre not as overpowering as the aroma. Itís still drinkable. I donít like it, but itís not as spicy (flavorwise) as I had expected.
