33 cL bottle, trade with ygtbsm94 and bottle from Papsoe. First bottle was infected so this rating is from the bottle from Papsoe. Pours black with a dense tan head - diminishes to a nice lacing head in 2 minutes. Aroma is malty, slight sweet and with a mild coffee note. Flavour starts quite sweet, mild yeasty fruity note - quite classic yeast note for Alvinne. Light coffee and liqourice flavour. Goes into a decent bitterness and light roasted acidic finish. Sweet finish. Ungstrup (37225) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 17, 2005
A black beer with a disappearing brown head. The aroma is sweet malty with primary notes of caramel, but also fruits and alcohol are present. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of caramel and fruit. The mouthfeel is quite carbonated. I better get back to this one, since my notes are very limited for such a complex beer. joergen (27970) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 14, 2005

Bottled. Quite much black colour, mediumsized brown head. Aroma is roasted malts, some fruits, licorice and also some yeastyness. Flavour is yeast, fruits, roasted malts and some licorice. Also alcohol shows and some quite wooden notes. A lot sweeter than I expected, yet quite wellbalanced and drinkable.

Bottle. Very dark brown colour with a small tan head. Aroma of roasted malt with hints of licourice and chocolate. Sweet malty flavor with some hints of molasses, licourice and chocolate. Long sweet roasted aftertaste. Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 15, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) Very dark brown, but not completely opaque. Small, light brown head. Nose of roasted malts. Extremely full-bodied with notes of bitter, dark chocolate and roasted malt. Marked alcohol and sweetness. Light ashy notes and only a short, dry bitterness which never really balances the sweetness. But this doesn’t appear unbalanced, but very lovely. 120805 omhper (24961) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 25, 2005
Bottled at RBESG. Near black. Rose aroma. Sweet and roasty, salty and intense with notes of milk chocolate. Very soft mouthfeel. Like a flower garden a summer morning.... Complea and unusual, incredibly refined compared to most other Belgian stouts. madmitch76 (24360) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JAN 9, 2011

Smooth and silky palate. No bitterness or dryness. Complex with hints of brandy, marmalade fruit, caramel, chocolate and coffee. Licorice undertone in the finish. There is also a cooling mint tone. Very moorish!
UPDATED: APR 11, 2010 Very dark and dense. Aroma of milk chocolate and roasted coffee. Balanced malt and hops with a lightly bitter smoky finish. Subtle and superb.
