hopscotch (9558) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 18, 2014
Bottle... Hazy burnt-orange pour with no head. The aroma is a melange of white oak, caramel and black cherries. Full-bodied with nearly no carbonation. The flavor is a moderately sweet, lightly tart blend of fruitcake and caramel. Finishes sweet and tart, and then lightly bitter. Bottle shared by Rick at the Vero Beach ABC (Miracle Mile)!

Lukaduke (2374) - Portland, Maine, USA - APR 2, 2014
Pours a hazy caramel leather color with a trace of gaseous bubbles forming a thin layer of foam. Layers of date fruit, fig, raisin, boozy grape and earthy wet wood, leather and moss. Booze is pretty in check considering its abv, though the flavors do get a bit muddled in the midpalate but the start and finish make up the difference. Low carbonation but feel its appropriate to the beer.

Aroma of grape, fig, chocolate. Deep amber color. Complex taste... like wine bur an ale with a ever such an alcohol burn.

skoisirius (1763) - Earth, Washington, USA - JAN 21, 2014
Bottle at The Stumbling Monk, Seattle. Any time I see something from Alvinne, I go for it. Deeper amber pour, no head. Powerful nose hinting at sugars, dried wine grapes, deeeeep oak, figs, and a slight note of booze. Flavors consist of dark fruits, barrel, a solid muscat grape flavor from the Montbazillac’s (seems fairly specific amongst other wines I’ve tried), caramel, and booze, but surprisingly approachable for 15%!. Lingers until you sip it again. Absolutely fantastic and loud, just the way I like it. Dank!

yngwie (14146) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 29, 2013
Bottle, 33cl. An unclear, amber colored beer topped by a small, dense, off-white head leaving some lacings. Alcohol, caramel, dark dried fruits, some notes of cooked vegetables and vanilla in the aroma. It’s sweet, warming and soft on the palate, with caramel and dried fruits dominating the flavor. Some woody vanilla hints chime in. A little bitterness in the finish, which is rather warming. A tasteful and moreish beer, too warming, but in a nice way. 131004

11.2oz bottle pours out a dark amber no head. Nose is sweet malt pit fruit syrup. Taste is as the nose pitfruit berries fruit and a hot end.
