Gushing bottle! Black color with initially big head, but reducing quickly to a thin layer. Aroma of roasted malt, dust, light sourness, maybe brandy, deserving a 7 or 8. Good flavor, roasted malts and chocolate, quite drier than I remembered, smooth, balanced, with tones of alcohol that come from the whisky barrel. Good, but nothing spectacular.

Brown color with red reflex; no head, just a small collar of bubbles. The caramel aroma is a bit dusty. The sweetish caramel flavor has just traces of whisky; being the flavor not impressive, the lack of whisky doesn’t help; the final is weak and dusty, short and a bit astringent. Easy. Uncomplex.

Cheers MesandSim for sharing this at mine. If anyone reads this before they buy one or open, I’m warning you this was the most spectacular gusher I’ve seen since Peter North. It climbed a good foot out of the bottle. It was everywhere. In drawers and cupboards. Wasted nearly half of it. Some oak and whisky, roastiness, chocolate. Bit strange and couldn’t really get my head round it. Also in the middle of a real bitch of a cold.

Defreni (3327) - Husum, DENMARK - MAR 18, 2011
Flaske: Gusher med brunt skum. Duften er en kende brændt plastik, men whiskyen dækker over det. Meget livlig i munden med masser af små bobler. Forholdsvis sprittet, men påtrods af alt dette bedre end jeg havde regnet med.

sebletitje (10547) - Enghien, BELGIUM - FEB 23, 2011
Gusher! Brune foncée, mousse épaisse moka avec pas mal de sédiments solide de levure. Arôme, whisky ressort bien tout en mélangeant le côté café, malt grillé ainsi que une fine touche de bois et chêne. Au palais, la bière commence à développer son côté stout avec la température ambiante et reste néanmoins légère pour une RIS. Le whisky donne un palais réchauffant qui est sec en bouche avec une fine touche de boisé chêne. On retrouve un peu de fruits noirs un peu acide. Malheureusement, ce niveau de levure qui semble être typique chez Alvinne vient entériner cette expérience où le profile du malt reste trop en retrait. Toute fois le fini conserve l’aspect de Bladnoch qui est agréable et domine un peu le tout.

bhensonb (16139) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 22, 2011
Bottle from Alvinne Beer Shop. Capped 375, and it gushed as the cap loosened. Poured black with a 2 finger creamy tan head. Aroma is sour and oaky. Full bodied. It’s oaky, darkly malty, sour and quite peaty/oaky. A complex and flavorful drink. Excellent. And smooth.

marcus (10978) - Sacramento, California, USA - FEB 21, 2011
Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours black with a rich tan head and a sour malt aroma. This was a gusher. There is a slightly sour treacle flavor, very complex.

tomaz (91) - , GERMANY - FEB 19, 2011
Apres une ouverture surprise, cette biere qui mousse enormement dans le verre aussi, offre une couleur brune foncee, trouble. La mousse brun clair tombe assez vite par la suite. Biere mele des notes sucrees et alcoolisees assez presentes. Suivent des notes de cassis-cerises, prunes confites, tres automnales et chaudes. Bien batie et agreable, la bouteille presente en son fond une belle quantite de levrure.

3.5
heavy (2922) - Split, CROATIA - FEB 12, 2011
23/01 0.375 l bottle courtesy of Doggythedog, great thanks for sharing! It poured pitch black, barely transparent body with medium sized brown head. Fine sourish coffee and licorice aroma with light whisky oak notes. Flavor was weaker than expected, but nice coffee and other roasted malt, woody, very slightly alcoholic. Medium body with medium finish, coffee dominating here, very slightly warming. Didn’t impress me so much, rather simple and thin for an imperial stout. Of course, not bad.

3.4
