Alengrin (2076) - BELGIUM - AUG 25, 2014
Dark counterpart of Kristoffel Blond, also since 2013, and I’m not sure if this is better. It has an off-white, sticky head and clear bronze colour, an aroma of caramel, pear, walnuts, rhubarb, brown sugar and iron, and a taste which lacks complexity, showing some dried fruitiness, smooth caramelly and nutty malts but not much body and a metallic, watery, quickly fading finish. Well, a little bit better, alright.

Better than others would have you believe. A rich, tannin strong brune. Chocolate, toffee etc. solid.

Westkyoto77 (530) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 2, 2013
Bottle from Yamaya. Sweet fruit aromas. White billowing head. Low carbonation, medium body. Taste is super fruity and quite sweet - think bubblegum and banana. Creamy texture, but could do with a little more heaviness. Not really my thing.

KyotoLefty (6563) - Kyoto, JAPAN - OCT 10, 2012
Bottle. Cheap, sweet, sugary nose, banana candy, plum, chocolate. Brown with red tint, fine head. Sweet, metallic, plum, raisin, cherry, chocolate. Very cheap and fake though, too much ester. No thanks.

maekchu (2196) - Hirakata, JAPAN - SEP 7, 2012
33 cl. bottle from the local Yamaya store. Candyish malt, candi sugar aromas. Clear dark brown. Initial is mostly mild brown sugar; some yeast is noticeable in mid palate; fades out quickly, with a slight carbonation tingle. Rather uninteresting stuff; no real complexity
