Benzai (8999) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - NOV 22, 2014
Bottle shared @ tasting. Opaque pitch black color, small dark brown head. Aroma is malts, lightly whisky, lightly vanilla, lightly dark chocolate. Pretty subtle aroma for such a big stout. Taste malts, dark malts, roasted malts, medium to heavy roast and roasty bitter, subtle liquir influences, bitterness. Full body, medium carbonation, thick oily texture. Oh it’s fucking delicious.

Bottle, red wax. Pitch black pour, with a dark brown head. Dark chocolate, vanilla bean, licorice, chocolate fudge, brownies, oak barrel character, mild booze, and notes of dark fruit. Very very rich, but still silky smooth. Awesome dessert beer. This blew my socks off.

Bottle 65 cl. Vintage 2013. Pours an almost syrupy thick, pitch black with a small, brown head. Sweet rich, vanillaish roast in the nose with lovely Bourbon accents. Extremely rich body, syrupy almost, sweet vanilla roast and again heavy, yet mellow Bourbon notes. Warming alcohol finish. A lovely HUGE Imperial Stout. 081114
