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.

One of Alvinnes Morpheus beers, based on Morpheus Wild. Thick, sticky, off-white head, murky chocolate brown colour, very dark. Aroma of chocolate, plums, coffee liqueur, brown sugar, brambleberries; fruity but very dry taste, complex, bitter chocolate malts, coffee touch and more roasted bitterness in the end. Almost imperial stout-like.

Dit was het enigste van de Morpheus-bieren dat niet mijn smaak was, jammer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap @ Haandfest 2013. This is a deep dark amber red one with a small quickly sidesticking beige top. Sweet dark candied sugar on the nose with only subtle herbal hints. Not much more going on here really. Have a feeling that this is a one of those sweet ones. It’s actually not overwhelming sweet. Yes, lots of candied sugar, but it has a bourbon wood like mildness that cuts through it. Gently oily mouthfeel with a comfortable carbonation level. Sweet licorice on the taste. Soft herbal as well. It’s not all that bad actually. 25.05.2013

Heel donkerbruin, mooie stabiele kraag. Ruikt moutig, zuur, chocolade. Smaakt zoetzurig, wat cacao, kruidig, aparte smaak, beetje medicinaal.

Bouteille: Deep amber coloured with a ruby sheeen, presumably hazy, stable off-White foamy layer; sourish and slightly sweetish cellary-lemony nose with sweet red wine and caramel in the Background; moderate to solid sweet and sourish flavour, medium to full bodied, a bit adstringent; dry sourish and cellary finish with some chocolatey flavours. A good dunkel thirst-quencher...
