olio (10265) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 23, 2017
Tap @ Gastropub Tuulensuu.
Pours hazy amber color with a large off-white head. Sweet ripe fruits on the nose, plums and raisins mostly, lots of caramel and molasses, subtle earthy notes and yeast. Flavor starts sticky sugary sweet, ripe fruits, caramel, molasses, faint licorice, spices and yeast, subtle sourish notes on the background. Some alcohol warmth at the end, lingering spicy and sweet aftertaste. Quite nice Quad with a mild sour twist.

sebletitje (10080) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUL 15, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 5, 2016 Nouvelle révision, même bouteille que l’original avec 4 ans de bouteille en plus; et un BB de 04/2017. Couleur reste bordeaux voire acajou, col épais et crémeux blanc-cassé mais retombant plus rapidement. Arôme au nez fin de vin rouge, retrouve plus de notes de malts caramel, sucre candy et effluves liquoreuse presque de réglisse. Également pas mal de fruits noirs; date et figue et de raisin sec, retrait alcool perçant bien. Palais reste sur une effervescence moyenne-haute, sucre candy tjrs en présence avec ce fini de sucre noir, vin rouge en retrait, le tout commence à montrer un petit côté de soja, toffee, sirop/collant aux lèvres. Révisé à la baisse ma note originale. Reste correcte, mais retombé en qualité avec le temps

-------&# Glenn for the shares. Holy hell, found the holy grain of beer. A sipper for sure, but dman this is as close of wine being used to brinkg beer to a whole new level. Land van Mortagne was already enormous, but this takes it to a new direction. Couleur bordeaux, acajou voire pourpre sur un col léger beige. Le tout donne un bouquet énorme de Pomerol dont les notes de vin sont accompagnées par un malt caramélisé qcq sucres résiduels. En bouche, on reconnaît là ce mélange de barrique de chêne français et américain avec un Pomerol divin laissant un profile de vin chaud, sucré prendre le dessus tout en laissant à la bière toute sa place pour se développe. Palais reste doux sucré avec de brèves notes aigres fruitées de grappes de raisins qui rajoutent un plus, cela se note aussi en fin de bouche. Se boit lentement, se déguste à t°avec des vagues de raisin, de vin de cerise caramélisés qui attaquent le palais le tout est réchauffant donnant des notes de vin sur un léger boisé. Vraiment une bière de dessert à boire avec un bon morceau de chocolat. 9-4-10-5-19 le 07/05/2012

JorisPPattyn (9982) - Ursel, BELGIUM - JUL 7, 2012
Short-lived cream-pink coloured head over deep brown beer with a foxy sheen. Very fruity nose, part cherry, part sugared preserved cherries, roses-flowery. Quite vinous in character, as sweet dessert wine, if a red one. Still sweet, but with a bitterish woody streak. Fruity, with a little sourish edge, which brings it to a superb balance. Again red wine like, if way less sweet than suggested by the nose; Retronasal something like old carpets, but much nicer than that sounds. Very slick, medium to well-bodied, serious alcoholwarming. Aftertaste has again a sweet cherry & roseflavour. Great balance. Arguably the most complex beer Alvinne ever succeeded.

77ships (9798) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - AUG 23, 2012
Bottle @ ZBF 2012 // dark brown going to black with close ton of head // smell is quite sweet & malt heavy, caramel, dark fruits, I am getting really gravy on this (vleesjus) // taste is gravy (definitely there in an amazing way), sweet, chocolate, thick malts, caramel, dark fruits, hints of liquorish & syrup, wood,… warming sure but boozy no // slick, substantial body, low carb. , definitely a sipper / would have preferred this at home as opposed to a festival but excellent & among best things Alvinne (probably best) has done so far

Shared bottle at local tasting. Pours dark as Coke with a small light tanned head. Aroma of malt, molasse and berries. Taste of sweet berries, malts and even some nice liquorice. Very good one, complex but good.
