Benzai (8987) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUL 9, 2012
25cl bottle @ home. Dark brown color with a deep dark red glow coming through. Big creamy, thick, long lasting beige head that leaves a good lacing. Smell malts and a bit sour, slightly sweaty. Taste malts, sourish, grape-peel and a slight hint of fruitpeel-bitterness. Low to medium body and carbonation.

Erzengel (3554) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - MAY 28, 2012
Angenehmer, sauer-dunkler-dickflüssiger Geruch. Der Antrunk ist süß-malzig, leicht sauer, dabei sehr vollmundig. Schmeckt nach mehr als die 4,8%. Der Hauptteil ist lang anhalötend, voll, dunkel-dickflüssig und angenehm leicht säuerlich mit toller Holznote. Auf der Zunge bleibt eine dunkle, (röstmalzige) Holznote, dabei eine angenehm süßliche Säure. --> sehr interessantes Bier!

motelpogo (7054) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - MAY 5, 2012
’82 bottle at rbesg 08 grand tasting in sunny pilsen. a very murky light brown with no dsernible head; predictably woody aroma with traces of lacquer and tomato vine; tasted of brown sugar and bloody nose; plasant nonetheless

jfb (4089) - Freising, GERMANY - MAR 8, 2012
(bottle) pours a clear dark ruby colour with a frothy off-white head. aroma of citrus fruits, custard, caramel and strawberries, slightly earthy with a hint of lactic acid. flavour is mostly the same, quite fruity, with hints of barnyard, milk chocolate, cookie dough, grain and a minerally finish. light-bodied with average carbonation. quite good for sixty cents a bottle.

sayravai (4673) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 5, 2011
(Bottled, BBE 12/2011) Very nice blood-red color with a smallish, but firm and lasting, tanned head. Tart, vinegary aroma with some caramely-roasted maltiness. Flavor is mildly roasty, mildly vinegary, only slightly sugary-sweet. Almost medium body, foamy CO2. Normally I’m not such a big fan of Oud Bruins, but this is quite nicely balanced (sweetness & tartness) and refreshing. 4264

Bottle. Pours prune almost black. Tan head. Nose of muted cider vinegar and old socks. Taste is watered down vinegar. Soda like carbonation.

DruncanVeasey (7316) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2010
Cheesy sock, iron filings, red wine aroma....turning to sticky Chinese sauce, cinnamon, chip shop batter. Unique. Pours ruby with audible fizz, forming a stable beige collar. More of that deep fried, sticky Chinese flavour; syrupy oak with a tingle of cinnamon-dusted plain yoghurt, and rust, and cereal boxes. Sugared on the lips like a sticky plum sauce. I like a beer that challenges my descriptors, and this is doing just that. Fair play.
