UPDATED: FEB 9, 2015 (backlog ZBF 04/2013) from the DSB/Alv. ?tap train. Extremely well-rounded, bourbon-barrel-inspired vanilla caramel malt profile, producing a wide range of smooth sweet chocolate and cake notes, truly a desert for any tasting session - near-cloying in that sweetness, with hops playing humble second fiddle to this explosion of near madeira-aged malts.

Flaske fra Belgisk Bryg, delt med Ovesen som avslutning på Holmens aktivitetsdag 1.mai-14: picobryggeriet Alvinne fortjener makrorenommé! dette er et superb øl med overveldende aroma og smak som minner om de fineste årgansportviner og -sherryer. Vinøs, kompleks og uhyre velbalansert. Ettersmak som varer og varer, uten å bli hverken vammel eller skarp. De 14 ligger bare som en diskret varme i bakgrunnen. cubs (10635) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 18, 2014
Bottle @ home, thanks to Lukaduke for sending! Pours a deep orangish red appearance with a lasting, foamy, dark brown head. Really complex nose. Cinnamon, plums, prunes, red grapes, apples, dark chocolate, and caramel in the the nose. The spicy cinnamon booze in the nose comes off like a mild form of Goldschläger. Medium body. There is some note of the booze but it’s not too strong. Kind of tastes like a tannic red wine that has some additional brown sugar and toffee. A fair amount of dark fruits as well as leather. The carbonation is a little dull. Some light oxidation. A little bit of residual sugar in the mouth after the finish. Damn, this is fine beer.

Draft @ BBF’12Leighton (21235) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 9, 2012
Brown with red glow. Small, thin off-white head. Portlike taste, with hints of bourbon, vanilla, red wine. Smooth oily beer with smooth carbonation.
On tap at Borefts 2012, Bodegraven. Pours cloudy, red-brown with a faint, bubbly white head. Sugary malt nose with ripe fruits, toffee and bread. Very big sweet flavor, a touch syrupy, with jammy fruits, dates, plums, cake and toffee. Full bodied with soft, chewy carbonation. Lightly warming finish with tons of ripe, candied fruits, jam, figs, plums, cake. Very rich, but not overly cloying in the end. Great stuff. marcus (10222) - Sacramento, California, USA - AUG 12, 2013
Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours dark brown with a reddish hue, almost no head and a tobacco and dark fruit aroma. There is a raisin and red wine flavor, just like it says on the label, with a fruity finish.complex and very tasty.
