3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very dark brown, not quite black. Coca cola style head that disappears rapidly to nothing, and leaves no lacing. But it does have legs! Aroma is subtle milk chocolate and Starbucks. Taste is straightforward milk chocolate, little carbonation. Much less body and complexity compared to the Podge.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown color with a large, light brown head. Aroma is very intense on the yeast notes. Booze soaked dried fruits and dark sugar are dominant. Taste starts with the same notes as the aroma but in the finish you get lots of roasted coffee and bitterness. There is also some kind of dry, dusty flavor which makes me think of an old cellar. Carbonation is on the high side and body is medium-light. Overall I didn’t like it too much.

perfect appearance of dark mahogany colour and huge, dense, long lasting beige head; aroma of dried plum, cherry, hints of raisin and maybe figs, chocolate notes, some herbs and alcohol; taste of dark chocolate, dried cherry and cherry brandy - like a perfect cherry brandy dessert with some herbal hoppy bitterness

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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.

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.

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.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.
