Benzai (16708) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 18, 2017
Sampled @ 10th Danish Ratebeer Gathering, Ulfborg, Day 1. Dark brown to black color, average sized beige to light brown colored head that lasts for a decent while. Aroma is malts, earthy, iron. Taste malts, dark malts, iron, raisins, quite bitter. Don’t get anything "Black IPA" anymore. Apart from the black that is. Either the saison yeast is doing something weird and wrong to the beer, or it just has an infection or something. Bleh.
