MrHangover (2139) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - SEP 28, 2012
Draft @ borefts. Dark, clear brown color. Aroma of red wine, vigs, and dark fruits. Flavor is sweet, fruity and carries a lot of alcohol. Very nice sipper.

yngwie (12608) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 22, 2012
Bottle, at HaandFestival 2012. It pours a more or less black body, at least dark, dark brown, and is topped by a finger-thick beige head. The aroma has less alcohol than I’d expect from the ABV level, with some oak, dark berries, caramel and roased malts. Sweet and warming on the palate, wtih caramel, berries, some roasted malts and a hint of something reminiscent of pancakes. Full body, finishing bitter and warming, with a pleasant sweetness. Overall, too warm and sweet, but it’s a complex and tasteful beer anyway. 120504

BigMomma (223) - Leuven, BELGIUM - AUG 31, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2012 Details: 50cl bottle, lot 573.
Tasting notes: Pours a black color with a dark red shine and a thick beige white head. Sweet complex aroma, malt, caramel, slight hint of alcohol, soft, creamy, slight vinious touch, dried fruit, interesting. Sweet big, fat flavor, malty, caramel, roasted nuts, gentle alcohol burn, subtle bitterness, long dry finish. Thick syrupy mouthfeel, very low carbonization.
Conclusion: A big, fat beer which is well matured and hides it high alcohol content quite well but lets you experience some of it, unfortunately the carbonization is a bit low but that isn’t unexpected from a high ABV barrel aged beer.

Bottle @ ZBF 2012 // dark brown going to black with close ton of head // smell is quite sweet & malt heavy, caramel, dark fruits, I am getting really gravy on this (vleesjus) // taste is gravy (definitely there in an amazing way), sweet, chocolate, thick malts, caramel, dark fruits, hints of liquorish & syrup, wood,… warming sure but boozy no // slick, substantial body, low carb. , definitely a sipper / would have preferred this at home as opposed to a festival but excellent & among best things Alvinne (probably best) has done so far

On 33 cl bottle from Vinmonopolet Vika. Black color & off white foam. Aromas of licorice, malt, chocolate & some dried fruit + cask ageing influence. Full body & high complexity. Medium carbonation. Some sweetness, but also nice sourness and some bitterness- well balanced. Very enjoyablea

Thanks Glenn for the shares. Holy hell, found the holy grain of beer. A sipper for sure, but dman this is as close of wine being used to brinkg beer to a whole new level. Land van Mortagne was already enormous, but this takes it to a new direction. Couleur bordeaux, acajou voire pourpre sur un col léger beige. Le tout donne un bouquet énorme de Pomerol dont les notes de vin sont accompagnées par un malt caramélisé qcq sucres résiduels. En bouche, on reconnaît là ce mélange de barrique de chêne français et américain avec un Pomerol divin laissant un profile de vin chaud, sucré prendre le dessus tout en laissant à la bière toute sa place pour se développe. Palais reste doux sucré avec de brèves notes aigres fruitées de grappes de raisins qui rajoutent un plus, cela se note aussi en fin de bouche. Se boit lentement, se déguste à t°avec des vagues de raisin, de vin de cerise caramélisés qui attaquent le palais le tout est réchauffant donnant des notes de vin sur un léger boisé. Vraiment une bière de dessert à boire avec un bon morceau de chocolat.

Short-lived cream-pink coloured head over deep brown beer with a foxy sheen. Very fruity nose, part cherry, part sugared preserved cherries, roses-flowery. Quite vinous in character, as sweet dessert wine, if a red one. Still sweet, but with a bitterish woody streak. Fruity, with a little sourish edge, which brings it to a superb balance. Again red wine like, if way less sweet than suggested by the nose; Retronasal something like old carpets, but much nicer than that sounds. Very slick, medium to well-bodied, serious alcoholwarming. Aftertaste has again a sweet cherry & roseflavour. Great balance. Arguably the most complex beer Alvinne ever succeeded.
