Benzai's rating

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 12/20
Benzai (15301) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, - JAN 31, 2013
33cl bottle shared with Dutchdrebus. Almost opaque dark brown color with some redness coming through. Medium to full sized beige head that diminishes fairly quickly. Don’t get much aroma but that might be me since I have a bit of a cold. Taste malts, some caramel, slightly liquorice and slightly black fruits. Medium body and carbonation.

erickok (5924) - Leuven, BELGIUM - MAR 18, 2017
Almost black, beige head. Dark cake like malt sweetness, some rye, herbal. Very Belgian. Almost knäckebröd like malty taste, including the seeds. Sweet and indulging, spicy edge. Very Belgian and sweet but fairly well done. (33cl bottle from Prik&Tik Leuven)

UPDATED: JAN 25, 2017 From Belgiuminabox. 2012 edition. In Grimbergen glass. Playing A Golden Wake. Simply superb. Full of tasty dark fruits with a strong bitter bite to compensate. Reminds me westy 12. I Dont know if its for the age such a greatness, but I?ll soon find out soon...24 Jan 2017: From Belgiuminabox. In Grimbergen glass. Playing A Golden Wake. Maybe the 2011 version was a bit softer and more balanced but this one is still great nonetheless 25 Jan 2017: From Beergium. In Grimbergen glass. Playing A Golden Wake. As good as the other ones I tasted recently from previous years. Maybe age smooth its a bit improving it, but this is great too

bonkiedeaap (736) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 29, 2016
Bottle from Dranken Verheyen in Poppel Belgium. The beer is dark brown colored and has a large creamy head with nice carbonation. The aroma is malty and fruity with notes of roasted malts and dark fruits, also caramel and dark fruits, licorice, yeast, spices and a little alcohol. The taste is full bodied and sweet with caramel and licorice but also roasted malts, and then comes a light bitterness with yeast and spices. Finish is warming alcohol and spices, a little dry and light bitter. Nice beer!

Medium/heavy aroma of malts, caramel, wood, dark fruit, chocolate, bread, roasted malts and spices.

Turbid/opaque ruby/dark brown beer with heavy yeast and with a slight/medium beige head.

Starts medium/heavy sweet with malts, caramel, wood, dark fruit and chocolate; ends slightly bitter and dry with bread, roasted malts and spices.

This beer is intense, complex and balanced. Had the pleasure to have the 2014 version and it was amazing. So much roasted malts for a Belgian Ale. Great at everything, but even more so in terms of flavour.

thepatrickman (1272) - Durham, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 16, 2016
2015, on draft (seriously) in Maine. This tastes like waking up on Christmas morning and eating breakfast. It tastes like rum raisin bread. It tastes like sweet, molasses-covered Christmas pudding. It’s big, decadent, and a treat this time of year.

Hopverdju (1107) - BELGIUM - DEC 5, 2016
2015. Donkerbruin, bijna zwart bier met beige schuim. Geur: mout, fruitig, kandij. Smaak: zoet, noterig, zoethout, licht bittertje. Goede koolzuurprikkel. Redelijk volmondig. Afdronk: wat plakkerig zoet. Lekkere winter warmer.

mice (932) - FINLAND - AUG 2, 2016
Hyvin tummanruskea, kirkas olut kohtalaisella vaahdolla, jota jää pieni reunus nauttimisen ajaksi. Tuoksu ei ensialkuun tuntunut oikein miltään, mutta hetken päästä se aukeaa kunnolla. Siitä löytyy vahvalla otteella tummaa suklaata ja höysteenä kevyttä paahteisuuta. Maku paahteisen karamellinen, suklainen, hieman katkeran kahvinen ja mausteinen. Suutuntuma keskitäyteläinen ja runsashiilihappoinen. Makea, mutta toisaalta melko kuiva.
