Guineu - Riner; Montserrat

Guineu beers are brewed and bottled by Ca L'Arenys of Barcelona, Spain.

Riner - This beer pours a dark yellow golden in color with a massive head of white billowing foam.   The aroma is slightly champagne-like, grain, tart, yeast.  The taste is lighter than the aroma, but has the same notes, with a light, very dry, and moderately bitter finish.

Montserrat - This 6.5% ABV beer pours a very dark brown to black, with a half-inch of light brown creamy, foamy head.  The aroma is very dark brown sugar, old spoiled sherry, light raisins, and a whiff of vomit.  The taste is light years ahead of the aroma, it takes the pleasant notes from the aroma and adds them to a dark roasted and nutty malt.
