341ml brown bottle. Pours brown with a reddish tint. Two fingers of tan foam vanish quickly, no lacing. Malt nose with faint earth like note and traces of coffee bean. Flavour is again malty with a quick metallic roast character, mild leafy hop notes. Trace chcolate malt aftertaste. Medium carbonation, light body. Decent, passable as a dunkel. Bottle from a six pack purchased at Sherbrooke.

Pours a dark copper with small off white head amounting to a small white ring. Aromas are roasted, chocolate, nutty maltiness. Flavours are lightly bitter, roasted malt, chocolate malt. Goes down easy like a lager but has a bit more flavour like a dark ale not bad.

A nice twist to Charlie Flint, this beer pours a clear brown color with a very minimal head. Aroma of chocolate and caramel. Taste is some roast chocolate malts with a bit of sweetness ad little bitterness. Very light bodied and easy to drink.

Pours clear dark brown, medium creamy head. Taste is led by the malts for sure, with chocolate, chicory, molasses notes. Not overly sweet though. Little bitterness. Quite drinkable.

gramity (1601) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 24, 2011
Light brown, looks like an ale. Aroma of slightly sweet malt. Touch of roast. Taste is great with roasted malt. Drinks extremely easy. This would be a hell of a session beer for me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

341mL bottle poured almost black with some reddish highlights when held to a light source. Aromas of coffee and chocolate. Taste is predominantly malty sweet with a bit of hop bitterness in the background. Nice mouthfeel provided by adequate carbonation and a medium body.

Bottle. Pours a very dark amber with a thin tan head. Sweet malty aroma. Tastes of caramel, toffee, with a touch of molasses... very malty. Very full-bodied. Finishes malty. Not much hops, but a good mix of malt flavors. Pretty good...

Finally an Alley Kat specialty brew worth drinking. The beer was a dark amber almost black but with no head to speak of, I did the bottle upside down one foot above the glass pour but couldn’t get any head. Smelt very sweet of caramel malts or maybe roasted almonds can’t quit tell. Feels very smooth and flat almost no carbonation but not to light. The taste is very grainy at the tip of the tung and turns to a sour red wine towards the back, very dry. Has a bread like after taste, not a bad beer don’t think I’ll buy t again but if someone offers me a free one I won’t stab them in the liver.

Why does this beer have a grey quality to it? Absolutely zero head. Looks like a 10 year old bottle of rootbeer that has actually settled. Kinda flat and murky too and greyish. A wonderful oilslick has replaced what could’ve been a foamy top. Sour-sweet stink. Disgusting sour taste and a little bitter - quite harsh and almost upsets the stomach. Perplexing sticky mouthfeel that numbed (thank god). Feels very flat. Beer has no more and no less than 2 flavors. Yuck. Burp was ok. Very low quality in every way. My wife drew a triple coiler next to my review - now that’s a sign!!

Not my favorite Alley Kat beer, but hey they can’t all be your favourites. Thanks to Neal for hosting a fun night for those of us who came up from Calgary. The Alligator is very dark but that is colouring and not malt as the body is not any thicker. A fairly average light malt flavour and I quickly moved back to the cask Full Moon. Reminded me more of a "blackened" pale lager for the colour rather than a Dunkel by taste.
