I really liked this beer, a super coffee stout, powerful, yet easy drinking, lovely complexity on taste and smell, all-round superb beer, if you like alcoholic stouts

Dark brown pour with small beige head. Amazing aroma of ripe fruits, bready, yeast, caramel. Taste of ripe fruits, plums, figs, raisins, blackberry caramel, toffee, molasses, bready, yeast. Lots going on in this one. Lower carbonation, full bodied, creamy mouthfeel. This is one delicious beer! Only thing wrong is it is slightly too sweet or it would have even scored higher in my books. Absolutely brilliant beer!!

On tap at The Olde Depot in Oakland. It pours a very dark brown/black color with a khaki head. The aroma is super fruity with plums, fig, blackberries and hard fruit candy. The flavor is divine with ultra ripe dark fruit, dates, fig, plum, blackberries, rich bread, and hard candy. Very sweet and full bodied, but with a great bready malt background that lends a lot of substance. Thick but not syrupy. Sweet yet substantial… this is the beer I imagine the monks drinking while fasting. So good! This reestablishes my faith in Belgian beers. More please.

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.

Benzai (8227) - 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 I’m quite impressed by this beer. Very well done.

Bottle @benzai. Pitch black with a small light brown head. Smells roasty, liquorice, sweet. Mostly liquorice though, which i’m not too excited about. Tastes wiebertjes, roasty, chocolate, liquorice, dark chocolate. Full body, nice carbo. Too bad i didn’t like the smell too much.

14/VIII/13 - on tap @ Internationaal Streekbierenfestival 2013 (Zwevegem) - BB: n/a (2013-764) Thanks to Domien for sharing today’s 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) Crème Brûlée, also dried fruits, pretty sugary. Aftertaste: caramel, hint of mocha, vanilla, sweet milk chocolate.

On tap. Dark brown with a foamy tan head. Chocolate biscuit, citrus, and roasted barley aroma and taste with dominant candy sugar notes up front and a plum flavor to the finish. Medium to full bodied chewy palate.
