Almost unhopped brown ale, the base beer for Morpheus Wild and Kerasus, undressed for the fans of the true "oud bruin" style.

Bottled, thanks rlgk! Hazy dark ruby/brown, faint head. Tart lingonberry aroma. Some coffee, notes of rubber. Light bodied, clean mouthfeel, almost no carbonation. Sour with some sulphur in a tinny finish.

fiulijn (15440) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 21, 2012
Bottle at Nuetnigenough, Bruxelles
Dark brown color with red hue; large head, but short retention. The aroma is typical Alvinne, with roasted malt and moderate acidity, meaty. The mouthfeel is dry, and more weak than expected; mild flavor of roasted malt, but not enough flavor, while the moderate sourness is nice; being without hops, the final is rather short, and dry, not for this bad.
Overall, it lacks of flavors, but it’s still a very enjoyable beer, with a degree of complexity and elegance.

29/V/2012 - 33cl bottle from De Hopduvel (Gent) @ home - BB: I/17 (2012-552)

Cloudy dark brown beer, big beige to yellow head, unstable, little adhesive. Aroma: chloride, rotten fruits, soapy, vegetable soup, in all: very unpleasant. MF: lots of carbon, light to medium body. Taste: tart green apples, then nasty rotten grain or fruits taking over, chloride as well. Aftertaste: green sour apples, bit metallic, lemon peel. I hope so hard that something went wrong AFTER botteling.

Lukaduke (2444) - Portland, Maine, USA - MAY 20, 2012
Draft... Pours a muddy brown with hints of ruby on the edges and no bubble. Aromas are earthy with some dried fruit, raisin, plum and a bit of tartness. On the palate a nice acidity bring the flavors right up to the front of the palate... and the earthy qualities take on a subtle oakey chocolate maltiness to balance out the sour cherry, dark fruit flavors... alot going on here, would like to see this with a touch of carbonation.

Draft. Listed as Undressed Regular. Dark mahogony beer with a tan head. Wine and tart aroma with light earthiness. Sour notes, and wine flavor with oak. Medium bodied. Sour and wine lingers with oak and a light candy flavor.

sebletitje (7028) - Enghien, BELGIUM - APR 6, 2012
33cl bottle from Alvinne Biershop Another gusher, thought the move would help solve the issue, but it’s my second bottle from the new installation that gushes. Brune, col fin beige laissant un léger filament doré sur le verre. Arôme légèrement aigre laissant bien passé la levure Morpheus avec une pointe de malt grillé. En bouche, malté, sucré, caramel sur un palais sûre donnant des pointes de cerise/baies rouges. Le palais ne présente aucunes traces de houblons, bonne idée. Le côté aigre reste modéré et agréable avec en retrait un malt pâle/grillé/cara.
