[Bottle at the Bootlegger, High Wycombe] Brown with a large beige head and too much fizz. Had flavours of toffee, butter, and a little chocolate. Felt thin and yet vaguely cloying in the mouth. Weak-tasting given the high ABV. Perhaps it was hurt by comparison to the cask ales that I had the rest of the night, but this really didn’t do it for me. c8

caramel-coloured beer, lightly opaque with a light head. Sweetish woody caramel smell. Heavy, alcoholic with hints of cumin and cardamom. Sour-bitter watery with an alcoholic twang. Dry finish. Lightly chocolate taste with some wood and some spices. Quite salty. OK bok.

7%, rather fruity bock beer. Nice balance of burst sugar and hips, with a background of sweet dark fruit. Tasty and easy to drink.

Had this sat outside the De Hollebol Grand Cafe, Den Burg, Texel on a glorious sunny day 28.09.11 Pours dark conker brwon with a light beige head. This is a big malty beer very tasty and full bodied, thick in the mouth with just a little streak of citrussy hop showing. b] A6 A4 T8 P4 Ov14 3.6

shoulderbroken (3061) - Tokyo, JAPAN - SEP 25, 2011
Bottle at the Pembury. Dark colour with a small beige head. Aroma is alcohol, sweet caramel malt, but of treacle. Taste gives slight bitterness, but with a foundation of caramel malt/belgian dubbel taste. Sweet and slightly herbal. Quite nice!

Benzai (11307) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 26, 2011
Bottle @ home. Dark brown colored beer with a very nice deep dark red glare coming through when held into the light. Not a very nice smell in my opinion, malts, caramel and a bit musty. Taste is decent though and the carbonation is nice. Medium body. Decent beer.

erickok (4459) - Leuven, BELGIUM - AUG 11, 2011
Big fiz when opening. Nice dusty brown coloured and filtered body with small tan head. Surprisingly fine aroma; malts do great with toffee, spices, pie crust and figs to complete the picture. Taste is pleasantly sweet and pretty full in flavour, even though the body is a bit thin. Good long finish carries on the same flavours, not much extra. Can’t think of any brewer with such differing quality brews. This I really enjoyed. (33cl bottle, bought on Texel)
