2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark with a brown, yellowish head. Caramel, chocolate, roasted malts, old bottle, balanced nose. bit bread. Alcoholic finish, creamy. Strong body, bit too dominating. Bitter in the finish gets a sweetish touch. Old bottle dominates this brew, although the beer is still before maturity date. Overall, nothing off but very straight forward. Bit disappointing compared with the other Morpheus beers.

Super, piana az wychodzi z butelki takie nagazowanie, moze etykieta niepozorna i skromna ale piwo przednie. Piana brazowawa czarne piwo nieprzepuszczajace swiatla. Wspanialy smak palony i chmielowy, troche jak black IPA ale ze spora dawka alkoholu ktora wnosi nieco slodowosci ale najfajniej jest jak cieplo sie odczuwa po kilku chwilach po przelknieciu. Finisz zdecydowanie wytrawny. Bardzo polecam nie tylko fanom mocnych belgijskich ale ale rowniez tym co wola mocno nachmielone piwa ze spora dawka palonosci jak w stoucie
