Mit "roasted malt" hat die Geschichte hier eigentlich nichts zu tun, denn hier wird nur geräuchert. Der Beginn ist interessant, denn von vorne kommen saure Früchte - ein paar Himbeeren und unreife Pflaumen. Ist der Schluck aber zu Ende, so kommt von hinten raus der Räucherschinken, nein, eher die Räuchersocke. Wer es "smoked" mag, trifft es hier ganz gut. Wer nicht, der schüttelt angewidert den Kopf. So wie ich.

Russo (1912) - Hemhofen, Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - JUN 23, 2013
Hazy brown color with a nice beige head. Aroma is soar with hints of roasted malt and cherry. Flavor is sweet and soar, quite weird hints of plum. Medium bodied and with a soft carbonation, mouthfeel is a balanced soar and roasted malt.

Red brown color, beige head. Nose is medicinal, tincture, fernet. Carbon seems to be high, body thin and texture soft. Taste is sour. Palate like in pharmacy, chicory and herbs liquere. Bitter finish. B@H

rand (1297) - SWITZERLAND - JAN 26, 2013
Bouteille 33 clé de la Cave du Vénitien - La Roche-en-Ardenne (B). Brune à belle mousse ocre et fine. Nez fruité, vineux comme une Brune des Flandres, rôti, note houblonnée. La bouche est relevée, torréfiée, café, boisé, épices, sirop de Liège et compote de prune. Notes acidulées-astringentes délicates et de houblon. Une bière entre deux styles, rafraîchissante et encore plus complexe et ronde lorsqu’elle est moins froide.

(Bottle, Poechenellekelder, Brussels, 21 July 2012) Dark brown colour with frothy, beige head. Malty nose with coffee, caramel, liquorice and herbal hops. Malty, fruity taste with notes of caramel, liquorice, dried fruit and a slightly herbal bitterness in the finish. More than medium body, with a certain sweetness. Very nice and tasty.

Benzai (10852) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUN 1, 2012
33cl bottle @ home shared with Thompson.Slightly hazy deep dark red color, small to medium sized light brown head that lasts for quite a while. Smell malts, herbs or spices, soap, perfume: just a really weird mix. Taste malts, herbs or spices again, some sweetness, slightly sour hints. Medium body, medium carbonation.

Average beige/white head. nice dark red/brown colour. Very sharp smell maybe herbs also somewhat sour. Taste also gives clues to herbs, reminds me of oregano from my local pizarria. overall not to bad colour is great just to much hints of herbs or spices. Drank at the lair od the evil beer baron benzai.
