3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2013 Small beige head. Hazy deep yellow brownish red body. Earthy oily nutty aroma with mealy dried fruit notes. Sweet earthy nutty caramel pudding taste with spicy musty notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft, slightly flat mouthfeel. Dryish roasty caramelly earthy aftertaste with chocolate and dust notes. Long, lingering earthy nutty finish. Nice, smooth, and easy-drinking, but a bit slack. (0.33l PET bottle from tap at Alus Stacija, Riga, under the name "Brenguļu Tumais". Rated again with exact same score, as "Abula Tumais", at Gauja.)

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy copper brown with small off white head.
Aroma.. dominating malts, caramel, fruity.. raisins, peach, butter, bit hoppy for balance
Dominating sweetness.. maybe even bit too much, but its compensated with quite decent bitterness.
Nice beer from Latvia. If you are here and like dunkel - must try.

Tap. Hazy, dark brown color. No head. Raisins, toffee, caramel, bready, sweet aroma. Bready, buttery, slick, very sweet, burnt sugar, caramel in flavor. Texture is closer to kvass than to beer. No carbonation. Not bad, but weird.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught at Alaus Stacija, Riga. Hazy mahogany colour, minimal head. Aroma of butterscotch and caramel. Sweet and very buttery. Medium bodied with soft mouthfeel. Caramel and some blueberry, but butterscotch dominates. Low bitterness. A beer with many qualities, but riddled by huge levels of diacetyle.

I was shocked an appalled that this beer wasnt already in the database alongside all the awesome latvian beers already present. Normally Id just forget it, but I had to submit a rating for my favorite beer of all time. Brengulu Alus (pronounced like Branngoolyoo Ahloos) is a dark ale from the Valmiera region of Latvia, and can only be found outside the brewery at beer festivals and open markets. In keg/large bottles it is unfiltered and unpasteurized, or as latvians would call it "live beer". If youre in Latvia and have a car, this should be one of your top 5 destinations.

0,5 L, vat. Donkeramber tot roodbruin, prachtig gesluierd. Kleine parelende lichtbeige schuimkraag. Herbaal, zelfs theeachtig in de neus. Smaak: chocoladeachtig, melasse, licht zurig, droog, krieken- en pruimentoetsen. Een beetje astringent. Speciaal.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught in brewery. Red-brown beer with little head which disappeared so fast. Sweet, malty, fruity aroma. Malty flavor with some fruity tones at the beginning. Then feel roasted tones and finish is little bit hoppy. Good.
