Perfecta. L’envelliment a la bota mata les notes dissonants típiques dels llúpols belgues. Graduació engayosa

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.

On ouvre: à 14 degrés le machin, il ne faut pas s’attendre à une éffusion de mousse! celle que j’aperçois disparait vite que déjà mon nez est en embuscade autour du verre de Jef (proficiat encore une fois !!) Au nez: Hou c’que c’est vineux, sucré, très boisé, caramel, légèrement beurré ( moi pas encore ).Ça sent la barrique, mes amis!! et la barrique ça sent bon !!! puis des fruits noirs, prune, raisin, c’est un bonheur pour le nez.La touche Alvinne est là , on peut pas se tromper !!!! En bouche: C’est doux, très doux, boisé ,on est dans la tonneau ,et c’est vineux, presque fumé,sauce soja, fruité, une légère et très agréable acidité débarque et la douceur laisse la place à une une bonne sécheresse vineuse. La part des anges du Pommerol qui était dans les fûts? les anges sont partis se lover bien tranquillement au creux des fibres du bois, attendant l’arrivée du Land Van Mortagne pour y plonger : Ya piscine les gars, on y retourne !!!! c’est incroyablement complexe, les papilles sont mises à rudes épreuves. les 14 % sont impeccablement bien cachés. Un pur bonheur !!!

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

Pyrmir (4226) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - APR 28, 2015
Bottle during Brussels vacation, thanks a lot, Pierre! Ruby brown with small off white head. Aroma of grapes, vinous notes, plums, raisins and light sour cherry. Taste is powerful, woody, vinous, grapes, sweet malt, alcohol. Sweet without being cloying, complex as hell

jaghana (4636) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - JUN 5, 2013
Bottle 50cl, an amber dark beer with huge copper head and good retention, exceptional for 14° ! Nose is amazing on sweet caramel and complex wood notes. Extreamly nice and creamy caramel like beer with vanilla and wood notes, lot of prune and figs, dark malt, toffee. Delicious red fruit notes, rich, smooth and complex, a dream.

mrhoppy (1289) - Santa Clara, California, USA - JAN 4, 2014
Wow! Right away similar to Westy and Rochfort. Only double strength! 14% very well hidden. Taste is fabulous with really outstanding nutty flavor. Big cherry and almond, rich butterscotch. Fruitcake. Musty wood, oak, spices. Slick in the mouth. This is an in your face Quad. A bit too strong but packed with flavor.

JorisPPattyn (8430) - Ursel, BELGIUM - JUL 7, 2012
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.

fiulijn (16426) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 13, 2013
Bottle from Nuetnigenough, Brussels
Dark brown color with quite a lot of sediment; creamy head. Some aroma of alcohol, prunes, chocolate; fresh and inviting, delicate. Good body strength, with smooth mouthfeel, also because of the high carbonation; roasted malt flavor and chocolate, rich, with light accents of red wine, and correct bitterness.
It combines in a very elegant way te chocolate and the red wine characters.
Deep, intense, complex and well blended. Highly interesting.
