Benzai (8986) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - OCT 1, 2011
Sampled at Borefts Beer Festival @ De Molen, Bodegraven. Almost pitch black, very dark brown opaque colored with a beige head. Smell smoke and hops. Taste smoke and hops but combined it smell a bit like kids’ fingerpaint: not very nice. The hops are nice but I dislike the smoke in combination with it. Decent carbonation, medium body. Cheers to Jan and Charlotte, very nice to have shared this with you!

Tap @ Borefts Beer Festival. Murky brown pour, tan head. Aroma has lots of smoke, burned wood, lots of citrusy and grassy hops underneath, but mainly smoke. Notes of liquorice and sweet chocolate. Taste has lots of hoppy bitterness, citrusy and fruity american hops, hints of smoke, liquorice and coffee bitterness. Experimental and somewhat messy.
