Bottle, 300 ml, poured into a tulip glass at home. ABV 9%
Pours a deep mahogany brown coloured beer, with nice deep ruby shades when hold against the light. Small head but thick enough, average retention and light lacing left behind.
Aroma is very sweet with lots of prunes and tons of malts, lighty roasted. It reminds me of those malt nutritious beverages, only much more heavy and sweet.
Taste follows, very very sweet, all malty, molasses. Not sickenly or artificial sweet but not something I’m looking for in a beer.
Very thick body, sticky palate.
Overall, weel, not my favourite one. If it wasn’t for the alcohol, and more as a warming feeling rather than notable on the taste, it could pass as an malt energy drink or as those non alcohol beers for kids. Saved by appearance and mouthfeel. jmgreenuk (10378) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - SEP 12, 2013
Bottle from ABC Beers. Poured a deep mahogany with a broken off white head. The aroma is rich yeast and red berry fruit. The flavour is medium bitter with a paint stripper, medicinal malty and surprisingly smooth palate. Benzai (16928) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - MAR 11, 2013
33cl bottle @ home. Dark amber brown color, small beige head. Smell malts, some sweetness, slightly leaves. Taste malts, slightly sugar, slightly yeast, some caramel, lightly sweet-bitter and a touch of grape-peel. Nice body, medium carbonation. Way better than expected. deanso (10282) - Chiang Mai, THAILAND - FEB 25, 2013
