COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a heavy spiced dark beer - when we say heavy we mean 9.5% ABV and loaded with spices. Star Anise, Cardemon, Cumin a touch of Red Hot Chili Pepers. Definately not a beer for the faint hearted.   It’s name is also a reference to the legendary beers our Master brewer created in the past for Unibroue (Quebec).   Might just be worth burning for...     “If we have no heretics we must invent them, for heresy is essential to health and growth.”   ― Yevgeny Zamyatin

Almost black with quick fading fizzy head. Initial aroma is of overwhelming bready yeast. Later the cardomom comes through a lot. The texture is a bit thin and the carbonation is too intense. Lots of aniseed. Overall it's too spicy.

Inoven (1068) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - NOV 14, 2017
Flesje gedeeld door Benzai. Amberkleurig bier, heftig schuimend tijdens inschenken maar het schuim zakt vrij vlot weer weg. Smaak is licht kruidig. Geen nasmaak.

Benzai (17000) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - NOV 14, 2017
Bottle shared @ tasting. Clear dark amber to dark red color, huge foamy off-white head. A bit weird herbal / spicy aroma. Taste malts, caramel, caramelised sugars, lightly herbs or spices but not annoyingly present, some dark malts, nice light touch of raisins and a decent bitterness in the finish. Decent to medium body and medium carbonation. Quite decent.

Fles gedeeld door Benzai, geprobeerd met Inoven en Roelzie1986. Het is een donker bruin bier met een kruidige geur. De smaak is zacht zoet en kruidig.

Bottle at De Paas. Bit hazy reddish brown with beige head. Sweet malts, sugar, plums, mint, bubblegum, light licorice, aniseed, raisins, soft grass. Medium sweet and quite bitter. Over medium bodied. Quite unusual because if all the herbal and spicy notes but not bad.

MrW (776) - Mechelen, BELGIUM - OCT 5, 2017
Sample at Mechels Bierfestival 17. Aroma is warm! Licorice, chocolat, banana, caramel. Poured dark brown with a beige almost creamy head. Taste has lot of herbs, yet hard to name them, anice/licorice (but not overwhelming).

4.1
Icedwarf (1908) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - SEP 24, 2017
Donker bruin bier met schuim. Smaak is kruidig, krachtig en vol met aroma, zoet en warm met iets van anijs, drop en vanille. Echt een bier om van te genieten.
