Bottle from Cotteridge Wines Birmingham. Poured a deep crude oil like colour with a thin tan head. The flavour is big bitter, lots of liqourice, but with a creamy consistency. The alcohol starts to dominate in the palate and the aftertaste which I’m not keen on. Still a great beer though. Benzai (15600) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - APR 12, 2013

Soft prickling carbonation. Dry cocoa/chocolate in the flavor. Inviting honey tones underneath. Balancing peppery bitterness. A fine dryness throughout. Really good stuff. [17.01.13]
