The beer is dark amber in color with an off-white head. A touch boozy on the nose with some caramel, wood, bourbon, and maple syrup notes. Just very sweet, but pretty nice. The flavor is similarly heavy on the sweetness. Tons of caramel, maple syrup, and vanilla. A bit of sweet wine and wood, too.

MrHangover (2455) - 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 (13216) - 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.

77ships (3594) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - AUG 23, 2012
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
