Countbeer (4323) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - APR 6, 2013
Bottle: Small ashy tan beige foamy head/lacing on top of a pitch black colored beer. Aromas of earth, medicinal/iodine, peat, some roast and wood. Flavours of earth, spices, stone, pepper peel, roast, peat, tar and just lots of earth! Aftertaste is spicy, earthy and roast. Special. Low carbo, soft mouthfeel, full body and a light creamy texture. Balanced, earthy, full of new flavours. This is another yet very good executed beer of Emelisse. Chapeau!

Benzai (7326) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - APR 6, 2013
Bottle shared by Harmen @ WWT II. Pitch black color, no head really. Aroma is a bit weird, it reminds me a bit of paint really, though it has some good notes to it as well. Taste malts, alcohol, whisky, bitter. Full body, ok carbonation.
