Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, - 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.

Vignale (2640) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 11, 2015
Flaska från Etre gourmet. Som vanligt med Alvinne en skumkaskad, under allt skum en mörkt mahognybrun vätska. Riktigt fin doft, lätt laktosyrlig, lite brett, fuktigt trä, mörk torkad frukt, katrinplommon, plommon, körsbär, choklad, läder, relativt söt men välbalanserad, lite alkoholvärme. Förvånansvärt lätt kropp. Riktigt gott, funkar väldigt väl till mörk choklad.

RichardW (1796) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2015
Bottled. Incredibly lively, the foaming took a good while to settle. Rich vineous aroma, with sour hints. On the tongue, loads of brown sugar and ripe plums, which lingers on the lips. Long ripe fruit finish, with some dryness. Complex and intriguing.

Erasmus_ro (2020) - Alabama, USA - APR 30, 2015
Bottle. Pours a dark auburn brown with a large, beige head. Aroma is reddish sour berries, dark fruitiness, caramel, marzipan yeast, dried fruit. Fairly yummy. Unfortunately booze dominates the flavor. Ethanol is very much present. Some Belgian fruits, some red berry sourness, yeasty. Strong carbonation.

Maakun (1881) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 24, 2015
Shared bottle. Dark brown with very big light brown head. Cloves, lots of spices, Brett-like notes, herbal, alcohol, nori, carrots, burnt toast. Light sweet with light tartness and umami finish. Medium bodied with lots of carbonation. Strange stuff, almost sushi like at times.

Hermod (4788) - Vantaa, FINLAND - MAR 25, 2015
33cl bottle. Huge gusher, which I kind of expected so opened it in the sink. Dark brown colored, off white, dense head, filling my glass. Aroma is just yeast and booze. Nothing else. Flavor has some licorice, plums notes, but other than that, very boozy and yeasty. Hugedisappointment.

Excalibur123 (287) - Soria, SPAIN - MAR 2, 2015
Presenta color marrón oscuro con gran cantidad de espuma cuando se abre y retención media; aromas a chocolate, ciruelas, licor y azúcar moreno; en boca entrada potente y licorosa con amargor medio que se acentúa en el retrogusto; buen cuerpo con carbónico un poco alto; notas frutales pero amargas, las notas ácidas de la levadura morpheus también se aprecian, descompensada y demasiado alcohólica, cuando coge temperatura se vuelve excesivamente amarga.
