A new brew in honor of owners Taylor’s and Mandi’s new son, Evan (and with a winking nod to the Steve Carrell movie filmed around the corner in Crozet). This beer is in the style of a Dusseldorf "sticke altbier" - originating from the North Rhine-Westphalia area of Germany. It is the cousin to Cologne’s Kolschbier, in that they are both termed "obergärige" - top fermented - beers brewed in the alt ("old" or pre-lager beer) style. Alts range from deep gold to dark copper in color and have a firm, hoppy dryness to back up their malty undertones. We’ve created our alt on the deep gold color end of the spectrum, but in the "sticke" (secret) category, that signifies a higher-gravity beer that, in Dusseldorf, is brewed as a reward for local customers and is often not listed on the menu (thus the "secret" part). Evan Altmighty was brewed with Pilsner, Munich, and Caramel Munich malts and hopped with German Hallertau Tradition hops. The same cologne-based strain of ale yeast for fermentation provides light fruit and bready notes and aids in the prolonged cold aging of this ale often treated like a lager after primary fermentation. 30 IBUs, 6.6% ABV.

Bottled 355ml. -from Za Popen’t Ljubljana. Amber coloured with red glare, small off-white head, dusty malty nose. Toasted malt, caramel, slight nutty and dry fruity with some bready notes in rather dry finish. Pretty average and boring.

TorbenJensen (1396) - Valby, DENMARK - JUL 13, 2015
An American version of a German altbier. Estimates deep aroma of caramel malt and light aroma hops. Very special and delicious taste of roasted almonds, hazelnuts, dark caramel and spice in the direction of cinnamon and sage. Mouthfeel is thick and luscious.. The finish is something special, for just before a spicy hoppy bitterness extends throughout the session, enters a nice little tang of biscuit on the palate. If you can imagine a brown cake with vanilla in large parts, that is the way it tastes.

Drank from a twelve ounce bottle, thank you Bjorn! Has a nice sweet, dark malt aroma. Taste lightly sweet and complex, a bit watered down, but a wonderful light hop finish.
