Benzai (14821) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - MAY 6, 2013
Sampled @ CBC 2013. Opaque black color, full sized light brown head. Aroma is light to moderately malty, some cookies, roasted malts, sweetness, chocolate, lightly alcohol and loads of vanilla. Taste malts, lightly roasted malts, sweetness, sugar, lightly alcohol and again loads of vanilla. Light to medium body, lively carbonation, heavy alcoholic finish. Not my thing, too sweet, sugary and vanilla.

UPDATED: APR 21, 2014 Tap at CBC 2013. Pours black, thick and oily with a small brown head. Aroma is massive, with vanilla, molasses, fudge, booze, chocolate, bourbon and some dark fruit. Flavor is heavy sweet and moderate bitter, just a tiny sip is amazing! Full bodied with flat carbonation. As expected, excellent!

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 30, 2013
Sampled at DLD 2013. Not sure if it was on tap or from a bottle, but my notes indicate that it was the 2012 version. Huge thanks to whoever shared this. My notes also indicate that I loved it. Mostly clear dark brown color. Minimal khaki head. Some smores, vanilla, cookie dough. Hints of wood and spice. Good chewy texture, lighter carbonation, more dry. Bigger body. Good big sweet taste, light bitter sweet. Brown sugar. Vanilla. Brownies. Marshmallows. Incredible stuff. Tiny sips yield a huge delicious aftertaste and aroma. Incredible.
