shoulderbroken (2105) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAR 2, 2012
Keg at Gainbar. Chocolate brown colour with massive golden bubbly head. Aroma is chocolate, yeasty, creamy maltiness, touch of hoppy bitterness and berry fruitiness. Taste is delicious. Creamy and soft, chocolate and vanilla, very roasty too, subtle hoppiness, caramel. Very smooth and the alcohol is well disguised. Great beer.

Bov (9607) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - MAR 1, 2012
courtesy of Doeschi - dark black beer under a solid dark beige foam; nice lace; roasted aroma of licorice and ashes; light notes of coffee; a solid carbonation and a solid malt backbone; pretty tart and with a respectable bitterness and an acidic touch; dry bitter and very roasted coffeish aftertaste with lingering notes of licorice

Glouglouburp (6075) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 28, 2012
In short: A messy dirty dark ale of some kind
How: Bottle 330ml. Consumed when probably one year after bottling (rough estimate here)
The look: GUSHER ALERT!!! GUSHER ALERT!!! Cloudy murky brown body, lots of particles, medium beige head with medium retention
In long: Nose is yeasty, roasted wood, dirty carpet, stuff… This beer doesn’t smell very clean. Taste feels like a melting pot of whatever the brewer could get his hands on. Dirty fruits, tobacco, dirty tree bark, yeast, aggressive spiciness, roast, toasted dry nuts, strong citric notes, cacao powder, probably other stuff... Aggressive soda-pop style carbonation. Finish is dirty-harsh and mouth-drying astringent. Alcohol remains mostly well hidden. As much of a mess as this beer is (and IT IS a mess) I was able to drink my bottle without thinking about a drain pour. Although losing 1/3 in the gushing probably helped. This beer is more of a intriguing puzzling mess than an actual bad beer. But I still don’t recommend it. There’s a new rumor going around that Alvinne is not a consistent brewery. I just started that rumor with this rating. Psss, pass it along.

Marheb (2136) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 10, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 3, 2012 Bouteille en éruption, énorme tête. Fruits confits englouti dans un bouquet étrange d’herbes. Au nez je respire presque l’aneth.

Plovmand (6517) - Helsinge, DENMARK - FEB 8, 2012
Bottle. Pours dark brown with lots of floaties and a medium tan head. The aroma is quite funky with notes of chocolate and dark fruit. The flavour is hard roasted with lots of funky notes. Dried fruit and brett. Very dry and dark fruity finish.

suprchunk (2266) - Crestview, Florida, USA - JAN 26, 2012
Gusher! Which seems to be par. Black colored pour with a giant khaki head. Slowly falling, leaving plenty of lace behind. A sugary sweet aroma with hints of chocolate, raisins, caramel. Very tart up front. Roasted character comes through with a biting bitterness in the back. Dry and sweet. Not bad.

sebletitje (6784) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JAN 13, 2012
33cl, from Alvinne shop. New batch @ new brewery. Nice active foamy creamy moka like head. Couleur brune foncée, quasi opaque et trouble. Arôme, malté cara et chocolaté, le tout sur une pointe de noisette et un houblon frais fruité. Je note un arôme neutre et poussiéreux qui reste en retrait par rapport au palais. En bouche, levure active laissant une fine note réchauffante avec un malt caramel, fin chocolat allant sur un cacao poudreux et une touche torréfiée. Houblon est présent procurant une amertume agréable qui laisse un fini fruité amer entre le pamplemousse et citron, le tout se mélangeant parfaitement avec le malt. Sur la fin, une présence chocolatée dure sur la langue et rappelle plus une stout avec en retrait un petit côté fruit rouge/baie.
