Benzai (6387) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - NOV 3, 2013
Bottle @ home shared with Dutchdrebus. Clear amber color, small off - white head that diminishes quickly. Aroma has malts, leaves, overripe fruits, lightly raisins, a slight touch of tea. Taste malts, slightly sweet, maybe slightly overripe fruits. Not a lot of flavors, at least I was expecting more. Doesn’t taste like 8.5% ABV either. Medium body and carbonation.

DutchDrebus (3430) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - NOV 3, 2013
Bottle @ Benzai. Amber to copper colour with no head. Smells some alcohol and some malts. Not a lot of smell. Tastes some malts, watery, some alcohol. Boring as fuck. Thin body, soft carbo. Even Rabbitos (benzai’s rabbit) disapproves.

MiP (13046) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 26, 2013
Bottle, 8.5%. Fruity aroma. Clear dark amber colour. Small unstable head. The flavour is malty, sweet, papery, and slightly boozy. On the sweet side, but nicely balanced by a warming alcohol.

Bamsen78 (2409) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 26, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear amber with small, airy off-white head. Clear atoma of malt, caramel and fruit. Booze in the long nose. Bitter, hoppy flavour, quickly giving way to sweetish notes of malt, caramel and fruit. Warming alcohol presence. Bitter, mildly boozy aftertaste. OK.

Cunningham (4000) - Halden, NORWAY - OCT 20, 2013

Appearance: Deep nutty brown color with small off white head that ends up in a thin layer.
Aroma: Rich caramel malty, fruity and some cognac.
Palate: Medium body. A bit sweet and a mild bitterness. Average carbonation.
Taste: Solid deep caramel malty, rich fruity and some cognac.
Overall impression: Feared a lot of alcohol in this one. Quite balanced and ok. Most useful in food.
Personal stats: Bottle Gundersen brought with him from summer camp in Denmark.

# 3437 ersma: von medici. das wappen ist auch an die medici angelehnt, aber ob der inhaber nun ein nachfahre ist oder nur den namen nutzt, ist unklar. braun, kupferfarben, klar. mäßige verschäumung, die schnell perdu ist. der geruch ist süßlich, holzig mit leicht pappiger note. etwas eiche. der antrunk ist süßlich bis süß, leicht spritig. deutliche cognac-noten (1 % ist drin, vermutlich nicht hennesy paradis). karamell, bonsche. die mitte bleibt süß, wird etwas klebrig an den lippen. zum abgang ein hopfenhauch, der aber degen die übertriebene süße wenig ausrichten kann. die flasche ist mäßig, trotz schicken wappens. macht sich eben nicht so gut, wenn unter dem wappen mhd und strichcode prangen. fazit: übertrieben süß, ansonsten wenig geschmack außer spritigkeit. tut nicht not. 8,6,5,5,7,5 - 5,55 - 19/9/13

Bottle pours dark amber. Aroma is sweet with a hint of dried fruits. Flavour is sweet with a hint of cognac. A little too sweet.

OleR (4597) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 1, 2013
0,33 l bottle bought @Sidinge Gårdsbutik, Vig Sjælland. Low beige head. Crystal clear orangey amber body. Alcohol up front. Smell of sweet liuqeur, raisins and a harsh malt-sweetness. Taste is very sweet with an alcohol sting. Sticky malt-sweetness, notes of dark dried fruits, and somethings that reminds me of cheap brandy. Medium full. Cloying on the palate. Sweet boozy ending. Not a favorite of mine. [Sjællands Odde, 17.07.13]

Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a small off-white head. Has a fruity malty spicy caramel aroma. Sweetish malty spicy caramel flavor with weak hints of cognac. Has a sweetish malty spicy caramel finish.
