Bottle from a Suffolk farm shop. Deep chestnut, almost blck with a thin cream head. Very strong blackberry aroma. The taste is all blackberry throat lozenge. Lots of blackberry flavour, but strongly medicinal. I didn’t really enjoy this. Too much blackberry, too little porter. A least it had some character.

Benzai (9995) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 18, 2014
Sampled @ GBBF. Opaque dark brown to black color color with a red glare coming through, small off-white head. Aroma is very very fruity, lots of blackberry and red currant in there. Taste is soft and round, lightly malts, very fruity again with blackberries and a touch of red fruit, slightly sweet and a touch of dark malts. Well done, like it.
