Benzai (15141) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - SEP 25, 2016
Sampled @ Borefts Beer Festival 2016, Day 1. Hazy amber color, average sized white head. Smell and taste malts, some hops though not very pronounced, decently bitter. Tastes like a hoppy bitter to me. Not bad, but I wouldnt call this a Black IPA.

Dogbrick (12633) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 3, 2015
Sample at the Badge-Whore Bowl (OSU vs AL) tasting on 01/01/2015. The beer is a dark brown color with some ruby around the edges and a medium light beige head that recedes steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt, hops and pine. Light-bodied with flavors of roast malt, resiny hops and a bit of citrus. The finish is malty up front with a piney hops aftertaste. I was honestly skeptical about an Italian Cascadian Dark Ale but I was pleasantly surprised with this above average brew.
