660ml bottle - thanks martjoobolut!yngwie (17284) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 12, 2011
Nice sweet belgian strong ale aroma, tons of esters here. Taste very similar, but a bit of maple syruppy sweetness. Dryness in finish, woody, and nutty.
Bottle, 75cl. A small, beige head forms and disappeares in a few seconds, with a more or less clear, dark reddish brown body underneath. Lightly bretted nose with dried fruits, caramel, some roasted hints and coffee. A bit too well carbonated, full to medium body, quite dry. Some residual sugars though, making sure it’s not too dry. Raisins, caramel, some generic dried fruits, coffee hints and sweetness. Hmm, I don’t think the funk is intended, it’s sure delicious in this way though, really delicious. A fine beer indeed. 111112 Benzai (16918) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUN 29, 2013

Bottle from Brewdog Bar Aberdeen. It pours darkest brown (near black), with a foamy beige head. The nose is toffee, caramel, treacle, brown sugar, salted liquorice and chlorine. The taste is caramel, aniseed, malt vinegar, smoke, toffee, vanilla, salted liquorice, treacle and butterscotch, with a rich, sickly-sweet finish. It’s full bodied and has average carbonation. Interesting, but far too sweet for me. Borup (15942) - Albertslund, DENMARK - JUN 2, 2013
