Wow, I’m genuinely surprised this scores what it does here. Pours, rather explodes out of the bottle, very dark clear brown, lots of sediment floating about. This beer may smell better than it tastes, which is awesome. Rich roast and caramel malts, some fruity funk and chocolate, as well as a hint of clove. Taste is similar to the aroma. The best way to describe would be a mix of a belgian strong and a more american brown ale. The malt is second seat to lots of prune,figs,cloves and some sweeteness and yeasty funk. Slight bitterness at the end. Minimal alc burn considering the abv, theres so much more going on to cover it up. Full mouthfeel. I wish this was available in my state, I’d love to age one for a year and see how it ends up.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 14, 2010
Bottle from Bruisin’ Ales in Asheville. The shabbiness of the label belies the treat within. Poured into a Chimay goblet, it’s murky brown with a reddish tint and a nice gauzy beige head. Nose reminds me of a characteristic in a lot of other beers from Alvinne: a nice ashy tinge, and I do mean that as a compliment. Smells somewhere in between a quad and an oude bruin. Vinous. Some wood and dark fruits. Similar taste. Palate a bit prickly and weirdly thin. Odd but good.

After the beer was served in the glass there was found a lasting quantity not wall adhesive light brown foam collar which was fine and evenly of structure. The beer also contained no carbonic acid in the glass. The beer has a thick dark brown color and a light acid taste. The after tast of the beer is hoppybitter with a roasted malty touch. This beer smells light citrusly.

JPDIPSO (5124) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 13, 2009
Chestnut color with a tall, bubbly tan head. Dark caramel and sugars swim in the aromas. A touch of nutmeg and cinnamon in the nose as well. Quite thin and bubbly in feel. Nearly to effervescent. Bubbles seem to carry the liquid away without giving the tongue a chance to partake. Mildly sweet with caramel and gently toasted malt. Some bitters in the middle with spices, orange peel and nutmeg. I’m not catching much alcohol and this bottle is quickly finished with the light feel. Stomach is warming, but that is it. This is a fun brew that I could partake in the any weather, even though it seems geared toward the winter months.

pompelmoes (89) - BELGIUM - NOV 27, 2009
Intens brown coloured beer with small beige foam. Aroma is interesting with a fine note of smoke and malts. Taste malty with hints of honey, cereals and fruits, it ends with a slight sournes and some touches of wood.

JoeMcPhee (9004) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 30, 2009
Deep brown pour with a thick and very persistent, tight brown head. The nose is lovely… quite vineous with a touch of barrel character, vanilla and a hint of light tartness. The vineousness is quite pronounced as it starts to warm up, with a bit of cognac-like sweetness. A little bit of licorice and black pepper as well. Fairly spicy with a long oaky/tannic finish. It’s kind of unusual but it really strikes up a nice balance of sweet and tart. I could see this pairing very nicely with wintery beef stews.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - OCT 11, 2009
On tap: Pours a dark murky mahogany with a frothy, clingy-lacing light tan head. Aroma of black cherries and toasty dark caramel with a hint of tartness and biscuity malts. Starts with average fullness and a mild dark caramely sweetness with some earthy light fruity tartness before a slightly vinous oaky finish. An interesting brew that seems to be between styles.

vtafro (5085) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - OCT 4, 2009
Ruby brown pour with some white head. Aroma was heavily influenced by candy sugar flavor given by the yeast base. Also some fruit flavors and spices. Nice.
