Travlr (21446) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - APR 24, 2011
Bottle at the first German local RateBeer tasting at Wasaba in Idar-Oberstein. Opaque brown, brown head. I can’t read my notes (it was tasted late in the day!) but the taste had soft sourness (lacto?) and dilute coffee. Not bad.

Holy (837) - GERMANY - APR 13, 2011
Bottle @home. Signature Alvinne aroma, nice. Flavor is muted, slight roast - not they’re best beer, but good to drink when you don’t want/shouldn’t have a high % beer...

jfb (5478) - Freising, GERMANY - MAR 20, 2011
(bottle) pours an impenetrable black colour with a frothy beige head. aroma of honey, bread crusts and yeast, with lots of grain, toasted malts, herbal hops and spice. flavour is more mellow, with a slightly spicy doughyness over light notes of roasted malts and herbal hops. watery body with lively carbonation.

JorisPPattyn (9474) - Ursel, BELGIUM - MAR 17, 2011
Small beige head, gone in secs over deep dark-beige beer. Mainly chocolate and a sharpish side-smell, that vaguely suggests sour. Very dry, dry coffee and ashes, wood. Something salty (DMS in high content? Seems a bit unlikely with this peculiar yeast). Addition of the yeast makes it not only creamier, but returns the chocolate from the nose. Very clean, and really dry palate. Feels well-carbonated, but light body. Refreshing. Refreshingly light ale. But of course, ACBF bashers will ignore this one, as it doesn’t fit their preconceptions.

Leighton (18527) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 12, 2011
Bottle at home. Dark brown pour with a foamy, tan head. Aroma holds some raw, flowery hops and faint roast. Flavor is damn roasty, lightly sweet, tons of tobacco and char, bit of peat and chocolate. Light bodied with fine to average carbonation. Finish has a dense, heavy roastiness, lots of tree bark, and some dry bitterness.

head: thin, beige, away fast
colour: black
smell: chocolat milk , sweet, candy sirup, bit coffee/malty ,
taste: amlty in the start, cold coffee, smokey/ashy, looks interesting in the beginning , but actually gets boring and very watery in the aftertaste ... it’s a bit better when sediment is added ...
