Pours brown, with a light brown head. Aroma is roasted malt, chocolate, and coffee. Flavor is chocolate, dark fruit, alcohol, wine, and a touch of wood. Body is a little thinner than expected.

30/07/2015 @Centerparcs – 50cl bottle from Bierhalle Deconinck Black with very small tanned head, small lacing after that. Burder malts, coffee, light licorice and small hints of sourness and wine. First sips I didn’t like but it became better and better

Special edition. Only 9% abv. Pours black with a 2 finger head of tan foam sitting on top. I get some fruity tartness and roasted malt up front with a mild nose of wood. The tartness is the first thing I notice in the taste followed by roasted malt, dark chocolate bitterness, and some wood from the oak. All of the flavours seem to working together nicely and the alcohol is not in your face. Just some warming after each of the swallows. Close to full bodied with medium to medium light carbonation. I do like this offering from Alvinne.

Sampled draft @ ACBF 2015. Tried as Alvinne The Oak Podge. Finally got to try one of these Podge beers. This is my 68th Alvinne beer & the regular Podge is their most rated beer & I have never had. Black, little mocha bubbles. Nose is iron, liquorish, herbal, sweet thick, little molasses. Taste is sweet sugar, liquorish, light herbal, molasses sticky, sweet herbal, coffee, not picking up much wine. Thick malt body. Pretty decent & enjoyable. (Thanks for sharing people!!!)

Dark brown, can’t see through it 1 finger head that faded quickly Oak tannins, coffee, some roasted barley. Not really a sour beer, maybe a bit at the finish. has a nice coffee some cream flavors, some bits of salad but finish is chocolate cake without sweetness.

Draught. This is a nice little impy that checks all the boxes but failed to really excite me.

Wine and sour notes with a hint of chocolate. No warmth and smooth palate with some alcohol in the aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
