yespr (30908) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAR 27, 2008
33 cL bottle, trade with ygtbsm94 and bottle from Papsoe. First bottle was infected so this rating is from the bottle from Papsoe. Pours black with a dense tan head - diminishes to a nice lacing head in 2 minutes. Aroma is malty, slight sweet and with a mild coffee note. Flavour starts quite sweet, mild yeasty fruity note - quite classic yeast note for Alvinne. Light coffee and liqourice flavour. Goes into a decent bitterness and light roasted acidic finish. Sweet finish.

Ungstrup (29223) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 17, 2005
A black beer with a disappearing brown head. The aroma is sweet malty with primary notes of caramel, but also fruits and alcohol are present. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of caramel and fruit. The mouthfeel is quite carbonated. I better get back to this one, since my notes are very limited for such a complex beer.

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 15, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) Very dark brown, but not completely opaque. Small, light brown head. Nose of roasted malts. Extremely full-bodied with notes of bitter, dark chocolate and roasted malt. Marked alcohol and sweetness. Light ashy notes and only a short, dry bitterness which never really balances the sweetness. But this doesn’t appear unbalanced, but very lovely. 120805

oh6gdx (20299) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 26, 2008
Bottled. Quite much black colour, mediumsized brown head. Aroma is roasted malts, some fruits, licorice and also some yeastyness. Flavour is yeast, fruits, roasted malts and some licorice. Also alcohol shows and some quite wooden notes. A lot sweeter than I expected, yet quite wellbalanced and drinkable.

omhper (19321) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 25, 2005
Bottled at RBESG. Near black. Rose aroma. Sweet and roasty, salty and intense with notes of milk chocolate. Very soft mouthfeel. Like a flower garden a summer morning.... Complea and unusual, incredibly refined compared to most other Belgian stouts.

Smooth and silky palate. No bitterness or dryness. Complex with hints of brandy, marmalade fruit, caramel, chocolate and coffee. Licorice undertone in the finish. There is also a cooling mint tone. Very moorish!

fiulijn (14380) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 13, 2008
It pours a glass full of foam, with big bubbles, maybe overfermented; when the foam is gone, a black beer appears. The aroma has some roasted malt, light caramel and delicate liquorice, where the high bottle fermentation has traces too; there is as well a touch of nuts, medium roasted. Good body structure; the flavor has a good mix of malt (and a bit of its sweetness), caramel and roasted malt; it has the necessary bitterness; very good final because the roasted malt is not too invasive; quite warming. An English Imperial Stout, with a touch of originality; very good.
