(Note about availability: I didn't research this specifically; am guessing off having found it once and it not being listed on the current Alvinne lineup.) Bought 2012 at the brewery with Jan 2015 by-date on the cap, tasted 2/22/13 in a tulip glass, initially a bit too cold (perhaps low-40s F). In the glass, it was surprisingly even more opaque than in the bottle, past deep cherry color into mahogany. Two inches of almost custard-colored foam settled to a scrim but left a nice coating on the glass throughout (better part of hour to the bottom). Serious legs. Caramel, toast, scotch-like booziness, coffee, cherry, apricot aromas. Sip, slurp: Chocolate milkshake, anyone? An artisanal one with some toffee, chicory and black pepper. Bitterness comes in the form of burnt toast rather than floral hop notes. As it went on and warmed up, the well-masked alcohol feel seemed to catch up to, then numb, my palate. Fork-and-knife level of chewiness, enlivened with a burst of carbonation but in mid-sip rather than the finish, leaving a serious mouth coating -- to the point where I found myself taking a few sips of water to rinse.

Pours dark ruby, totally hazy, with a small brownish creamy head.
Caramel and toffee on the nose with a really nice tartness. Big fruity notes, from tart cherry, to plum, raisin and stone fruit, red apple, faint banana with a sweet sugary edge. Slight alcohol too, therefore: hints of brandy. Port spices too.
Wow, booze up front! Lots of juicy fruit and alcohol, with a really nice tartness attached. Dark grape, sour cherry, plum, overripe peach, blackcurrant, cranberry. Feels like sweet red wine, gone a bit stale. Caramel to smooth things out, chocolate bits, toffee, but they also add quite a lot more sweetness. Warm boozy finish with thick Belgian yeasts.
Medium body, low carbonation. Aftertaste is really sweet, bready, brandy-like, but it can be handled if you sip it slowly.
Another great example for Morpheus yeasts. Really sweet tho, so get ready for that. A pity, kinda covers up the nice tartness, bit by bit.
