Benzai (14661) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - MAY 2, 2014
Bottle at -believe it or not- a tabletennisbar. Weird! Brownish color, off-white to beige head. And then I got totally distracted because the two girls I was talking to were that nice that I totally forgot about the beer. Wasnt too bad, but not very interesting either. Well this is worthless as a rating but while drinking the beer I had a nice chat with those girls so my priorities werent with rating this beer..

bhensonb (14486) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 18, 2008
Aroma is not typical. Its smooth roasted caramel with grassy or floral hop. Very dark garnet color with a smeary white film for head. Full bodied with mild and creamy carbonation. Flavor is roasted caramel with floral sort of hop. Its a bit darkly bready, but not overly sweet. Sort of an overachieving Newcastle Brown. Character its got. The finish is much as the beginning. This ale is arguably in a class by itself.

Christian (13074) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 7, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 4, 2009 Red brown, with a disappearing tan head. Fruity aroma, citrus hops with plum and port. Sweet malty flavour with some chocolate and coffee, and plenty of hop flavour and bitterness. Gave me a rather Belgian impression.
