From tap at Arendsnest. Pours hazy amber with a small white head. Aroma is fruity, wineous and thick malty. Sweet, light sugarish and solid hoppy, pine and grapefruity. Dense malty and sweet. Light dryness with the bitterness into the finish. cgarvieuk (26029) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 9, 2012

Tap at Beer Temple - Amsterdam. Pours clear, rich ruby with a very light, white foam head. Nose is heavy with rich caramel and overripe fruits. Hugely sweet flavor with sticky sugars, caramel, orange, light pine, dates, golden raisins. Full bodied, chewy, with soft carbonation. Moderate warmth to finish with tons of chewy, ripe fruits and big, sticky sugars. Very sweet but also very rich and flavorful.

Bottle from Bierkoning, Amsterdam, bb 13.1.2013Benzai (16708) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUL 5, 2012
Cloudy amber color; small head, but persistent. The aroma is full and malty, with light fudge, very Thomas Hardy’s like; later there is a very light cheesy impression. Full bodied barley wine, with very good malt flavor, some fudge, rich, sweet, round; light nutty touch; the bitterness is quite elevated, surely balanced; and the warming alcohol is a pleasant complement.
A bit more American than the classic Thomas Hardy’s Ale, more intriguing than all the American hop monsters.
33cl bottle thanks to Joes. Hazy red color, virtually no head. Smell slightly malts, hops and sweetish alcohol. Taste malts, some hops, sweetness. Kind of like a ’dessert-bier’. Sweetish, alcohol, lightly fruity, hints of strawberry and grapes. Low carbonation, syrupy texture, full body. Maybe a bit young though. brokensail (16648) - Dublin, California, USA - OCT 2, 2012
A clear amber color with a small off-white head. Tons of caramel, brown sugar, and toffee sweetness. If that wasn’t enough, a ton of dark fruit as well. Mild hop notes of citrus, perhaps a hint of pine. Tastes incredibly sweet, but just enough pine and citrus hops to add a light bitterness. Tons of brown sugar, toffee, and caramel. Great cherry and raisin fruitiness as well.
