Bottle thanks to Taylor at MFF. Aroma was prunes, port, chocolate and oak. Poured deep purple brown with little carbonation or head. Taste was ruby port, prunes, molasses and vinegary oak. Very dark for all the vinegar notes. This is a dependable kind of beer to come from Alvinne. Gotta be in the mood.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at home. Pours a clear deep reddish brown colour with a small coffee-beige head. Powerful and nice aroma dried fruits, sweet malt, caramel, alcohol and wood. Complex. The flavour starts as the aroma and even more like a proper dark and sweet Belgian ale. Suddenly the flavour ends with a lot of lingering wine berries. Has a rich and silky mouth feel, and a light bitterness. A fantasticly complex and balanced ale. Just wow!
