Hildigöltur (5103) - Kĝbenhavn, DENMARK - JAN 20, 2006
Draught at the brewpub. A huge dissapointment. I drove 13 hours from Copenhagen to Nürnberg just to taste this beer. And it sucked. Beautiful reddish brown coloured. Very buttery aroma with sour lactic notes. The same in the flavour. Very infected and very undrinkable. Brewpubs selling infected beer thinking they can get away with it are highly unserious. Altstadthof is one of them.

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, USA - SEP 2, 2005
Pours dark brown with a red gleam and a fine though disappearing tan head. Lots of milk chocolate and creamy notes in the aroma. Full and nicely balanced. Sweet smoooth chocolaty flavor with toffee, malt and brown sugar. Really tasty and highly drinkable. Thanks a lot ChristianSA :-)

ChristianSA (368) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 24, 2005
Tap @ brewpub. Dark brown with wonderful complex aroma of chocolate and sweet caramel. Flavor is dominated by more caramel, chocolate and licorice. Lightly fruity with a pleasant malt profile like all the beers from the place. Excellent!

Indra (2671) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - NOV 1, 2004
On draught at Altstadthof. Aroma of toasty malt, dark brown sugar and some breadiness, also faint fruitiness (yeast esters?). Attractive deep mahogany hue, clear, with a creamy and lasting head. Flavor is similarly malty and sweet, some light chocolate and pumpernickel notes, with a very fruity, again apparent yeast character in the finish, along with traces of licorice. Mouthfeel is smooth and lightly carbonated, medium-bodied. Very pleasant.
