Cunningham (5724) - Halden, NORWAY - MAY 11, 2012
Deep brownish colour with a tan head. Sweet malt, fruity and a bit sour aroma. Rich sweet fruity, lots of caramel malt, and light sour flavour. To much alcohol.
[@ Haand ØlFestival 2012]

TheBeerGod (5592) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - APR 12, 2013
Bottle. Murky mahogany pour with spotty bubbles on the surface. Aroma is tart with vinegar, wine notes, wet wood, dark fruit and caramel. Taste is slightly tart fruit, ripe fruit, dark fruit, balsamic vinegar, caramel notes, wine, wet wood, booze and dessert cake. Body is medium with sparse carbonation and mild warmth. Ends with more tart fruits, dark fruit notes, wet wood, balsamic vinegar, booze and caramel notes. Tasty but lacking a bit body-wise.

77ships (5499) - 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

Boutip (5195) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 26, 2012
Bottle: Poured a cloudy dark brown color ale with medium size foamy head with average retention and minimal lacing. Aroma of sweet malt based with lots of residual sugar and some dry fruit s notes with some easily discernable woody notes and light vinous feel. Taste is also dominated by some woody notes with a big sweet malt base with toffee and dry fruits notes. The red wine notes are also easily discernable without being too tart. Body is full with limited filtration and good carbonation with not much alcohol being apparent. Complex but also a bit too sweet to appreciate a large quantity of that liquid.

Beer5000 (5108) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 3, 2012
On draft @ HaandBryggeriet Beer festival 2012. Murky brown body with a small beige head. Nice aroma of malt and chocolate with some acidity. Flavor has a fine balance between sweetness and acidity, quite sweet, but does not feel sticky in the mount. Taste of dark malt, caramel, chocolate, a hint of vinegar and warming alcohol, more alcohol in the aftertaste. Full body. This is a really tasty and complex brew.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 20, 2012
0,5 L bottle. An unclear deep reddish brown body, under a ring of sand-colored bubbles. Sweet dark caramel and dark dried fruits to the nose. Some barrel notes and faint alcohol too. More than medium full. Thick and juicy in the mouth. Rich malt flavor. Sweet, with burnt caramel and jammy dark fruits. Distinct barrel notes, and a good amount of bittering hops in the backbone. Warming, rich bitter-sweet aftertaste. A balanced, tasty, and dangerously easy drinkable Quad.

ClubGonzo (4752) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 4, 2013
Tap sample @ Haand Festival 2013. Deep nut brown hazy body, medium creamy off-white head. Aroma is port wine, raisins, caramel, butterscotch, vanilla, hints of rum and toffee. Very nice. Taste is sweet caramel, raisins, wood, vanilla, honey, hints of oak and port wine. Creamy mouthfeel, full body and medium carbonation. Warming alcohol, yet hidden in taste despite the high ABV. Very nice, but a bit too sweet to reach the top rungs of the ladder.
