bierkoning (10386) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - DEC 2, 2013
Bottle from Benzai, thanks! Almost black and opague. cacao, chocolate and caramel in the aroma. Full bodied. Chocolate, malt, cacao, plums and grapes in the flavor. Sweet, with some bitterness and bite from the chocolate. Low on carbon. Nice.

ThirstyBird (1603) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - OCT 5, 2013
75cl bottle thanks to benzai @ RBBSG II. Pours brown with orange highlights and a beige head. Smell is burnt sugar, candy corn, caramel - huge nose. The taste is roasted malt, caramel and it ends hoppy and dry. Medium/full in body with mild carbonation.

Martinus (2892) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - SEP 16, 2013
Black colour, beige head. Aroma of vanilla, caramel, quite sweet. Very sweet flavour, caramel, milk chocolate, sweet vanilla pudding and light condensed milk. Light bitter finish, lots of lingering sweet vanilla. Nice experiment, I love crème brûlée and was curious to this one. Interesting, though I wouldn’t drink the whole bottle by myself.
(From 75cL bottle @ RBBSG II, Gent 2013. Thanks for sharing, Rene!)

10/VIII/13 - 75cl bottle @ RBBSG II, my place - BB: 21/X/14 - brewed: 21/X/12 (2013-729) Thanks to Benzai for sharing the bottle!

Clear dark brown beer, small irregular beige head, little stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: lots of caramel, vanilla, sweet, burnt caramel, bit of sweet chocolate. MF: soft carbon, medium to full body. Taste: lots of caramel, weird sourness, sugary, some vanilla, bit of mocha, little bitter. Aftertaste: caramel and slightly sugary, dairy products. Maybe it’s unfair to compare to S.T. Crème Brûlée?

Benzai (8549) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 13, 2013
Sampled from bottle @ RBBSG II. Pitch black color, small light brown head. Smell "hopjesvla" sweetness and yuk. Taste malts, dark malts, lightly some hops and fortunately, thank god, no "hopjesvla". Medium body and carbonation.

sebletitje (6819) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 12, 2013
75cl bottle courtesy of benzai @ RBBSG II. Emelisse’s take on Southern Tier Crème Brûlée? in any case, a much better result in this dutch version. Brune-ambrée, col beige-blanc cassé. Arôme malté au profil lactose rappelant la crème brûlée, note de sucre lactose et de grains. Palais garde ici ce même côté de crème mais le tout est relevé d’un profil trop sucré par l’ajout des houblons qui donnent à la bière une amertume qui contribue à atténuer la douceur des sucres lactiques. Les grains et malts restent en dominance sans toute fois faire de l’ombre à la bière.

77ships (4135) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - AUG 11, 2013
Courtesy of Benzai. Thx! 75 cl. bottle sampled @ RBBSG II. Nice label. Pours a murky dark brown with little head. Smell is very strong, lots of heavy Eastern-Europe chocolate, very, very sweet, touch condensed milk, huger brown sugar,… Taste actually starts out unlike as suggested by the nose with bitterness, bitter chocolate and roast followed by very sweet Eastern-Europe chocolate, brown sugar, syrup, bitter herbs in the finish, chocolate milk mix, cocoa, enjoyable but also a very mixed and messy combination of elements. Med, touch sticky & grainy body. Not bad but a poor mans Creme Brulee.

caesar (5218) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 7, 2013
Bottled. Dark. Aroma of huge vanilla, some black malt, chocolat. Like a choc and vanilla milk shake. Very sweet, creamy, but finishes quite dry actually. Strange, way too sugary artificial sweet, but i kind of like it somehow.

jerohen (2014) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - JUN 8, 2013
Bottled, gift from a colleague (Toni). Black appearance, brown head. Aroma of cocoa and caramel, some roasted malts, vanilla. Very sweet malty flavor. Not as Creme Brulee-like as e.g. the Southern Tier example (which is a good thing), but still the combination of flavors feels weird for a beer. Some hops shining through in the finish, that’s remarkable! Experimental, interesting, but not really my thing i’m afraid. Brewed for a good cause (KiKa).
