Thanks to bierkoning for that one. Bottle looks good. Beer in the glass not too dark, nice head. Starts strong malty, warming, fine spicy notes. Also some hints of nuts. Finish well balanced, still warming. Nice!

DutchDrebus (4664) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - AUG 4, 2011
Bottle @ home. Same 6pack as benzai, no signs of a gusher here. The beer itself is pretty active though. Colour: Deep orange/amber to red brown colour. Smells sweet, typical ’dubbel’ smell, caramel, alcohol and licorice. Tastes pretty heavy.. Sweet, fresh, alcohol and deeply caramel. Full body. Palate is a bit too active for me.

Benzai (9900) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUL 18, 2011
Bottle @ home. Almost a gusher. When I first poured it about 2cm of my glass actually had beer, the rest was an almost clear white foamy head. Copper amber colored beer. Smell earth, ash, caramel, nuts, raisin. Taste caramel, hay, raisin, light sweetness, lightly bitter, little bit dry finish. Body medium, lively carbonation, lightly sticky texture.
