3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Draught at Monk’s Café Wallingatan, Stockholm, 7 Oct 2013) Reddish brown colour with frothy, beige head. Malty nose with notes of nuts, dark fruit, caramel, dark rye bread and toffee. Malty, fruity taste with caramel, dark fruit, nuts, dark bread, a soft malt character with alcohol well hidden. Full body, with a certain sweetness. Despite its strength it’s surprisingly well balanced, with a smooth malt character. Very tasty and quite deceptive. Very nice.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught at Monk’s Wallingatan, Stockholm. Clear copper in color with a small head. Fruity sweet aroma, perhaps some candi sugar and overripe garden fruits. Taste is quite sweet, almost cloying. And the boozy notes sticks too much out.

Draught@SBWF2013. Aroma is bananas, some fruity and floral hops with a big time yeastiness as well. Mild notes of honey to it as well. Flavour is floral, fruity, nectary, honeyish and has some alcohol and mild nutty and yeasty notes to it as well. Good, apart from the yeastiness.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Like everything from Alvinne, there is something less pleasant inside. It’s probably the yeast that gives it this thing... Sweet dark fruits, caramel. Slight wood. Not bad. Looks are not good. Orange flat brew.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap @ Borefts 2013. This looked like a complete failure to be honest. Pours a hazy brown, completely dead, headless beer. Aroma is sweet, quite alcoholic and some old yeasty esters in there. Flavor is very sweet, fruity and spicey. Flavor makes up some points for the horrible appearance, but it couldn’t save this beer. Completely flat mouthfeel, short sweet finish. Disappointing.
