Bottle 330ml @ fonefan
Gusher.. Pours hazy amber with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, yeast, dried fruits, caramel and alcohol. Taste is medium to heavy sweet and light bitter with a long warm and dried fruity finish. Body is full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

Bouteille 33cl, BB 09/2016 de HopDuvel. Cuivrée, fin beige. Arôme est fruité noir très au devant sur un léger bouquet caramel et fin grillé (qui est censé être la partie dominante). Je note des effluves portant sur la réglisse, sauf si c’est là le côté ’burned’?, et un caramel renforcé en rétro-nasal. Palais est malté, caramel sur un côté agréable herbacé, réglisse et des pointes de biscuité. Effervescence est pour moi un tantinet trop élevée. Fini sec avec un herbacé léger et encore cette pointe de réglisse. Grillé très subtil tjrs accompagné d’un léger fruité noir. Pas mauvais, mais comme souvent avec Gaver on a cette impression de manque de finition.

Benzai (7287) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - NOV 28, 2013
Bottle @ home shared with Dutchdrebus. Clear dark red color, small light brown head. Smell lightly malts, sweet-sour. Don’t get any burned malts at all. Taste however has lightly burned malts, a bit sweetish. Quite thin bodied, average carbonation. Meh.

Not sure why this is called Burned Brown, it states on the bottle "Traditional high fermented beer with burned malts", but I don’t get the roast malts, and the colour is fairly light. That said, this is still a very enjoyable beer, if a little on the sweet side for my taste. Overall, I would certainly have this beer again, but wouldn’t go to any great lengths to get hold of it.

Dark brown, foam disappears quickly. I expected something roasted, but there was almost no roastiness. Sweet and malty aroma, light body. Not very good.
