sebletitje (9706) - Enghien, BELGIUM - DEC 16, 2012
Bottle sample @ 18de Kerstbierfestival, Essen 2012. Again, tasted side by side with the Speyside and really the difference in BA is minimal at best. Certainly glad not to have forked out the overpriced these beers usually go for. Noire/brune fonce, col beige, dor au verre. Arme est quasi similaire au Speyside, vin restant en retrait avec ce profile de sucre caramlis qui est somme toute fort agrable. Palais reste sucr, caramlis, vin blanc est minime et trs en retrait, pointe de raisin frais mais domin par des malts qui poussent le tout vers un stout que ce style belge. Ressent aussi un palais plus ptillant avec un vin blanc qui mme tant minime ajoute une pointe de fruit frais au malt.

Benzai (15019) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - DEC 16, 2012
Sampled at OBER Kerstbierfestival 2012. Pitch black opaque colored beer with a small brown head on top. Smell and taste malts, a lot of barrel ageing, sharp and winey with a touch of wood. Maybe a bit overdone, but nevertheless I quite like it. A bit sharply carbonated with a medium body.

from Erzbierschof - dark beer under a moderate foam left; Portwine-like aroma, pretty maderized with notes of chocolate and candi sugar; low carbonation and sweet; full-bodied and sticky; a fair astringency from the wood barrel; gently dry and with long notes of wood, Madeira and licorice
