Benzai (14269) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - APR 24, 2014
Bottle shared by Thonpson @ weekly tasting. Very dark brown to black color, average sized brown head that lasts for a decent while. Aroma and taste malts, lightly roasty, lightly alcohol, liquorice, a hint of dark chocolate and nicely bitter. Full body, medium to full carbonation. Well I must say Im quite impressed by this beer. Very well done.

kermis (11222) - Where the wild whales are, NETHERLANDS - MAY 7, 2015
Bottle shared. Pours near black with a beige head. Aroma of roast, dark fruits, coffee, toffee, leather, marzipan, licorice and dark chocolate. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet and bitter with a big marzipan/licorice/dark chocolate palate. Light full bodied with soft carbonation. Like a very strange Belgian RIS.

JorisPPattyn (9505) - Ursel, BELGIUM - JAN 14, 2014
Dark rusty-brown head, rather stable over deep-brown opaque beer. Chocolate immediately striking from the glass, bit of parsley. Caramel, toffee, roasted notes; Generally sweet nose with a roasted-woody touch. Bitter, very roasted-burnt, as meatparticles too long in the frying pan and cooled down. Scorched dark chocolate. Warming up, the harsh burnt bitterness is toned down,, letting some restsugars peeping through, but the damage is done for my, flavourwise. Well-bodied, without being really viscous/thick. Faint alcohol impression, well-hidden, soft to medium carbonation. Long lasting sweetish burnt aftertaste. Not my kind of sin, obviously.

77ships (8210) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - NOV 9, 2013
33 cl. bottle split by 3 @ t Rusteel. Ruby black with a tanned head. Nose is big on sweet spices but not as heavy as the two others I tried from the series, red grapes, sugar & thick liquorish. Taste is sweet cocoa, blue + blackberries, chocolate, slight bitter chocolate, lots of berries & liquorish with some bitter herbs in the back, thick malts & solid body. Pretty interesting & solid brew.

14/VIII/13 - on tap @ Internationaal Streekbierenfestival 2013 (Zwevegem) - BB: n/a (2013-764) Thanks to Domien for sharing todays beers!

Dark brown to almost black beer, creamy beige head, pretty stable, non adhesive. Aroma: caramel, dried fruits, liquorish, hint of vanilla, burnt caramel, mocha. MF: soft carbon, medium to full body. Taste: sweet caramel start, vanilla touch, reminds me in a very particular way of the Southern Tier (and Emelisse) Crme Brle, also dried fruits, pretty sugary. Aftertaste: caramel, hint of mocha, vanilla, sweet milk chocolate.
