Pedrens (102) - SPAIN - MAR 27, 2015
Botella 33. En copa cerrada. Color cahoba oscuro. Espuma beige muy claro de media formación persistencia baja. Aromas dulces y a levadura, cola, azúcar tostado, ciruelas pasas, cuero, madera, salsa de soja, lupulo... En boca aceitosa-cremosa, algo pegajosa, carbonatacion media bastante viva, buen equilibrio dulce amargo, donde el lúpulo y las notas maltosas se hacen mas presentes. Final largo con un importante punto de levaduras. No esta nada mal...

Gangstergafje (48) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - MAR 24, 2015
If you are willing to for one and for all change your idea of perfect beer, try Ongelovige Thomas. The appearance of this beer is perfect to begin with. Dark brown with a orange-reddish glow. The beer is very cloudy. Foam is little brown, but soft. The smell is dark and sweet, reminds of caramel and toffee. And hops. Nice. Than the taste. Extraordinary. The smell of caramel, toffee and hops, comes back in the taste, only intensified a thousand times. The taste reminds me of Duvel triple hop (?) and Chouffe Houblon, but milder, les bitterness and more sophisticated. The taste is familiar, but somehow new. Only slightly bitter in first, but after rolling the beer on the back of your tongue, a nice bitterness arises. There is also a sourness, somehow linked with a sweetness, I can’t really describe the sensation. You just have to try it, you won’t be disappointed. The Belgians are sure the best brewers in the world, but we (the Dutch) are definitely second.

McSherman (222) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - FEB 27, 2015
Optik: dunkelrot bis braun, trüb. Der Schaum ist kaum beständig. Aroma: süß, malzig, getrocknete Früchte, roher Kuchenteig Geschmack: Im Antrunk dominiert Süße und Röstmalz, bevor der wärmende Alkohol übernimmt und in einer ungewöhnlichen aber nicht zu starken Bitterkeit übergeht. Toll abgestimmt!
