Bottle. It pours a very dark brown body under a small, dense, beige head. The aroma has some strange radish or asparagus hints, but is mostly on the dark side, with roasted malts, chocolate, and a touch of vinegar and licorice. The flavor is sourish, with roasted malts, some chocolate, vinegar and licorice. Roasted and lightly sour finish. Medium body fullness. Well, a nice beer, but with some aromas and flavors not so nice. Don’t think I could drink much of it. 110610 sayravai (4710) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 3, 2012
(Bottled) Very dark brown with a very small, beige head. Aroma of licorice, and distinctively chocolatey malt. Flavor is sour-malty and lightly roasty, with stale coffee and way less chocolate than the aroma suggests. Light to medium body with low CO2. Has a vinous character, and not too watery body - but unfortunately doesn’t work that well as a whole. This is the opposite of Freaky in terms of the CO2 level. 4254 bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JAN 17, 2012
(330ml bottle, BB Feb 2013, Lot 543) Pours a brown body with a small beige head. Aroma of raisins, roasted grain, bread, cocoa, and toasted malt. Flavor of raisins, roasted malt, anise, coffee, chocolate, and dark fruit with a dry finish. harrisoni (18578) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2011
At ACBF 2011. Very very dark brown colour. Not as good as the regular freaky I thought. Some roast flavours. Odd. A little light in the body for a dark beer I thought maybe. BartC (727) - Lichtaart, BELGIUM - DEC 12, 2011
Dark (black) colored beer with a creamy brown head. Low on carbonation which was till now a rare property of Alvinne beers. Dominating raisins and other dark fruits in the aroma. Notes of caramel, wood and other fruit like banana. Nice sourness in the taste. Very surprising and refreshing. Finally a low alcohol beer with a massive taste! Excellent.

Dark colour with coffee-like thick foam. Aroma is a nice battle between the sweet roasted malts and a little fresh hop. A surprising sharp, acidic flavour. Some roasted malt comes through but is quickly washed away by the thin texture. tderoeck (9735) - Gent, BELGIUM - NOV 25, 2011
23/11/2011 33cl bottle @ home - BB: 02/2013 (2011-667) Thanks to William for the bottle! thirdeye11 (6160) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 26, 2011
Dark brown to black beer, small beige head, stable and adhesive. Aroma: sweet malts, caramel, wood tones, alcohol, raisins, sweet cherries, other dried fruits. MF: light but ok carbon, light body. Taste: pretty tart, sour apples, red wine vinegar, bitter, bit of caramel, mocha. Aftertaste: sour cherries, red currant, mocha, tobacco, coffee. The combination of sour and roastedness doesn’t really work for me.
(33cl bottle thanks to bu11zeye) cloudy dark brown, medium brown creamy head. Nose of chocolate malt, raisin, tinge metallic, other dark fruits, and funky. Taste of sour raisin, bit roasty, light chocolate wafers, mildly tart linger. Miksu (5053) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - OCT 23, 2011
0.33 l bottle at Craft Beer Co, London. Opaque black color. The aromas of leather, acrid roast and sour barnyard. Dry acidicm sour roasty flavor with licorice and pepper. Sourness and acrid roastedness, a perverse combination. gunnfryd (14892) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 11, 2011
