Bottle. Murky dark red-brown in colour. Very lively; huge foamy head. Very malty; caramel, toffee, brown sugar, chocolate. Well hopped. Very fruity; dark fruits, raisins & spices. Yeasty; lots of floaties. Very smooth. Sweet malty throughout but ending in a dry hoppy bitterness. Liked this. Nice beer! (2008)

Pours a medium dark amber color. Aromas of caramel, nuts, and maybe a hint of fruit. Flavors of nut, sweet malts, and some mild hop bitterness towards the end. Alengrin (5376) - BELGIUM - JAN 7, 2015
Dark counterpart of Alvinne’s first beer, from before they began experimenting with barrel aging and their Morpheus yeast. Deep burgundy with a thin, off-white head; caramelly, fruity, sweetish with thinnish body, a faint sourishness, dryish yeasty finish. Acceptable but nothing compared with the experimental inventions they would come up with later. MarcoDL (4964) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 6, 2013
Alvinne’s take on the Belgian dubbel. Very lively and yeast beer, with a large head. Malty, spicey and mildly fruity. Good. czar (9085) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 12, 2013
2003 vintage. surprise, surprise: not a gusher. pours clear copper, red tint, with a decent light beige head, little retention. fruity caramel, hint of acetic notes, spoiled fruits, grass, spices, hint of garbage, nutty, cheap candi. lively and soft carbonation, light body - slightly watery, hint of sweetness, decent grassy-citrusy finish. did not age well.

A clear reddish mahoganny brown ale with a super thick big bubbled dark mocha head. In aroma, smooth herbaceous nutty malt, with caramel, dark fruits, raisins, and light licorice. In mouth, a smooth nutty burned caramel with light curacao, licorice and some signs of oxidation...still in good shape. Bieropholie imports. bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JAN 25, 2012
(33cl bottle) Pours a clear amber-brown body with a spare off-white head. Aroma of grain, caramel, raisins, watered down whiskey, dates, and old books. Flavor of raisins, plum, yeast, and light chocolate. kjc51478 (441) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - OCT 1, 2011
33cl Bottle at Delirium. Bottle had visible dust on it giving away how long it had been sitting on their shelf. Aroma is fairly weak but mostly caramel sweetness and doughy yeast. Taste is similar - fairly sweet with caramel and some subtle spice on top of a mild but noticeable Belgian yeast. Not much skunkiness despite its obvious age, but rather weak flavors. Palate is medium-bodied, thin texture, very little carbonation, and a mild sweet finish. Weak for a Belgian ale but drinkable. Abio (1869) - BERMUDA - DEC 19, 2010
Bottle 2003. Brown coloured beer with a medium head that colapse pretty soon to a 1cm lace. Smell is sweet, earthy, overripe fruits. Taste is the same, but with a light sourness comes trough, probably overaged. Sammy (12210) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 11, 2010
Very pleasant for its style, this brown coloured Belgian was sweetish and very drinkable. Malty and slightly yeasty aroma.
