dorain (293) - Berlin, GERMANY - JUN 3, 2017
Aus der Flasche (bbe 2012-10 !!) 2016-11 getrunken.Nach der langen Flaschenlagerung ist das doch kein Stout mehr, sondern ein tief schwarzes SourBrown Ale. Ob das Mano Negra von sich die Säure mitgebracht hat oder die lange Lagerung es sauer werden lassen, werde ich wohl nicht erfahren. Oder es liegt daran das Alvinne sehr viel mit wilde Hefen arbeitet und ihre Biere durchaus ein sauren Charakter haben können. Na egal es war zwar eine Themaverfehlung, aber eine richtig tolle. Ich fand es klasse.

Courtesey of Kraddel. Sampled 375 ml. bottle @ De Rampkrot. Cap says 10/2012 without any clear context. I do believe that this is a BBF date. Sour Imperial Stout mixed with a lovely RIS and the first German RIS most likely. Dark brown, blackish, little bubbles. Nose is oxidized, light vanilla, sweetish sugar, thin chocolate but mostly oxidation dominates. Taste is Pritt / glue / oxidized walnuts, coffee grounds, lots of thin sour coffee ground, oxidation, cardboard, more glue, metallic, sour wild berries,… Near flat, thin sour coffee grounds,…. This is beer is gone – past it. They did it date.

kraddel (8143) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - APR 10, 2015
Pours clear dark brown. No head. No gusher... Alvinne though, AND old... how is this possible? Smell is glue-like maltyness. Taste is metallic, very sharp maltyness. Bit fleshy, funk in a no-good way. Very very metallic. Bit thin and nowhere near what you’d expect from a 10 % beer

Beerhunter111 (20476) - P´Castle, GERMANY - FEB 4, 2015
Ins Glas ergießt sich ein fast schwarzes Bier mit einer sehr geringen beigen Schaumkrone. Geruch holzig, sehr reife dunkle Früchte, alkoholisch, wenig Kaffee. Geschmack säuerlich, holzig, kräfig malzig, Kaffee, aber die Säuerlichkeit sticht sehr heraus, naja!

Backlog rating. Bottle shared at Chriso’s tasting May 2014. Thanks Paul for this one. Aroma is dark choc, sharp raspberry fruit with sweet caramel edge and some toffee. Flavour is composed of tart, raspberry, gooseberry, dark choc, black forest gateau. Some apple skin in there as well. Dar caramel / black coloured pour with a feeling tan head and an oily texture. Palate is sharp, sweet and sour. Interesting sour stout.

Palme (4811) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 17, 2014
0.375l bottle shared with The Tasting Crew. This is a deep dark brown almost black looking one with a bubbly kinda dark brown top. Really strange nose. It’s really really oxidized this. Buttery caramel with Nutella and a floral perfume thing. There is something about this aroma I don’t like. Hard to put words on it. It tastes lightly infected. Sourish tones all the way. Feels gliding in the mouth with a soft carbonation level. Sour leafs with acidic coffee and old wet wood. Okay perfume in the finish. A strange strange thing this. Grows on you though. 15.01.2014

minutemat (5529) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 1, 2014
Bottle @ Chriso May 14 tasting. Pours dark brown with tan head, sweet berry aroma, quite a sweet stout with sour apples, red berries, plums, roasted dark malts, a touch of choc.. interesting.

Scopey (14736) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2014
Bottle, shared at Chriso. It pours darkest brown with a small tan head. The nose is sweet, fruity, tangy, blackcurrant jam, treacle, fruit cordial, roasted malt and toast. The taste is tangy, roasty,earth, some acidity, tart green apple, blackcurrant, touch of bitterness and jam. Medium body and prickly carbonation. Sour stout...but was it meant to be? I am unsure.
