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!!!)

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

Rated on 5-25-2011 (Bottle 9%ABV) This beer has a large very fizzy beige head with a short retention, reddish brown body, fizzy, fast rising carbonation, and one ring of lacing. The aroma is malt, oak, some chocolate, vanilla, some hops, alcohol, and some dark fruit. The taste is malt, alcohol, vanilla, oak, light sournes, and has a semi-dry finish. The mouthfeel is light carbonation and this beer is light-medium bodied. A rather tasty beer with some different flavors for the style.
