Benzai (9548) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JAN 15, 2015
Bottle @ home. Opaque pitch black color, medium sized brown head that lasts for a decent while. Aroma is malts, some roast, slightly wood and some liquor, some bourbon. Taste malts, lightly roasty, liquor, some bourbon or some kind of whiskey influences, lightly sweetish wood. A very good balance between malts, dark malts, roasted malts, sweetish liquor and bitterness, finished with a good suitable carbonation and a medium body. Pretty damn good imo!

StoutHead (796) - DENMARK - NOV 5, 2014
On tap @ Mikkeller. Pours black with a small tan head. Faint aroma of coffee but not much else. Taste is of roasted malts, coffee, dark fruits, some hops and citrus-like notes. Above-medium body and average carbonation. Slightly sweet with a dry finish. Not bad - tasty but not too complex...and not fantastic either. Would happily drink again but not one I will remember having in the first place. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
