Pours amber with frothy tan head. Mostly secondary aromas, such as yeast, bread, porridge, lemon pie, dry pasta, yogurt, even a dash of vinegar. Fresh and powerful. Metallic and very, very sour. No bitterness. Difficult but rewarding.

Pedrens (162) - SPAIN - APR 15, 2015
Botella. Color cahoba espuma beige claro de buena formación y bastante buena persistencia. Aromas a fruta madura, ciruelas pasas, levadura, madera, frutos secos, alcohol, especias...en boca es aceitosa y algo pegajosa con carbo baja media. La levadura y frutales dominan, dulzor medio, amargor bajo, final a levadura q recuerda a habas crudas, no demasiado marcado, largo. Equilibrada y fácil de beber.

Hamirubi (253) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - MAR 27, 2015
It’s difficult to neglect the classic bottle when reviewing this beer. But I’ll give it a try. Strong dark beer with nice beige foam. Sweet, bitter and spiritlike ending.

Torrefacto (842) - Madrid, SPAIN - FEB 6, 2015
Color caoba limpio con espuma canela muy compacta y duradera. Intenso aroma de frutos secos, y, más tenue, frutas confitadas. Cuerpo medio-denso, inicio dulce, de frutas confitadas, al que sigue un sabor de frutos secos y un final seco ligeramente tostado.

Alengrin (3026) - BELGIUM - DEC 23, 2014
Commissioned beer in a swingtop bottle made for Den Ouden Advokaat, an eggnog making company in Sint-Niklaas. Deep bronze colour, dense creamy head, malt sweet, caramelly, estery, some DMS in the nose; spicy yeastiness, smooth, a bit chocolatey, some warming alcohol in the finish along with herbal hops. Okay, but nothing out of the ordinary.
