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.

Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours dark brown with a reddish hue, almost no head and a tobacco and dark fruit aroma. There is a raisin and red wine flavor, just like it says on the label, with a fruity finish.complex and very tasty.

77ships (7680) - 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
