Tessic (1113) - Brantford, Ontario, - DEC 12, 2012
This ale poured a deep amber colour with a soapy, bright white head. No lacing. Scents include malt, caramel, toast and dough. First sip was very nice and malty with flavours of caramel, toast and cereal most prodominant. Finish is malty with caramel and toast flavours lingering with a light bitterness.

Bottled. Extremely lively. The body is clear brown with a huge beige head. The aroma has licorice, malt, corn and caramel. The taste is licorice and not as sweet.

This bottle is "past date" but I dont see how thats possible. Anyhoo, judging by the ratings below, my experience wasnt much different than those who tried a fresher bottle. Caramel, toasted grain, straw, light spiciness, fairly watery. Slightly dry finish with a hint of bitterness. Its not terrible, its just kind of blah.

HopsandBolts (258) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 23, 2014
650 ml bottle from the LCBO. Appearance: Pours a clear deep brown with almost a finger of white head. Minimal retention and little lacing. Aroma: Malt, biscuit and something I cant quite identify that is throwing things off. Flavours: Malt, straw, bit of caramel. Mouthfeel: Thin with moderate carbonation. Overall: The aroma wasnt that great on this one but the flavours were okay. Everything seemed muted and subdued without any real character. Not much more to say.

I had this beer a while back and it was one of the worst beers I ever had. Im not sure if they changed the recipe but this is actually pretty respectable and have no problem drinking more of this.

MrHangover (4248) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 29, 2014
Bottle @ THT November. Pours a clear brown beer with a very small off white head on top. Aroma of sugar, caramel and slightly herbal. Flavor is thin, sweet and chocolately. Quite boring and thin, watery moutfheel. Not very interesting.

Bottle @ tht. Aroma is huge caramel, light liquorice, some fruity notes. Flavour is sweet malty caramel, full and creamy. Nice, but you must like sweet.

Benzai (14819) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - NOV 28, 2014
Sampled from bottle @ THT November. Clear amber color, small off-white head. Aroma is pretty grainy, dont get anything else. Tastes very malty and grainy as well with a slight hint of sweetness and nuts. Average body and carbonation. I dont like it.
