COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

rosenbergh (7034) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 16, 2014
12 oz bottle. (Shenandoah Hops) Staunton, VA. Clear dark amber colour with a tiny off-white head. Sweet malt... and that's pretty much it... in the aroma. The flavour is an opposite of the flavour. Very plentiful. Dark fruits, sugary and fruity sweetness, malt, strong maltiness and a tiny hint of hoppy bitterness. Very sweet for an... Altbier... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Slightly hazy deep amber coloured body with a muddied and ruby brown glow and a perfectly dense, two centimetre tall tan head - can’t get better looking than this for the style. Aroma of alcohol, caramel, toffee, nuts, apples and some pleasant raisin notes coupled with some yeast scents as well. Medium-bodied; Strong malty flavour with some metallic, mushroomy and nutty flavours and a rather mild finish showing the malt and a touch of sweetness. Aftertaste is slightly more well-rounded with some caramel and toffee sweetness battling out the earthy and nutty malt that encapsulates the beer, all with a pleasant english-style hop character. Overall, a nice altbier with a very earthy malt profile and a pleasant sweetness coupled with a noticeable complexity that lasts! I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Total Wine in Manassas, Virginia on 01-May-2014 for US$0,99 (yes, under a buck!) sampled at home in Washington on 02-September-2014.

nakedwhendrunk (2196) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - AUG 31, 2014
Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a stange. The appearance was a decent looking hazy amber to red color with a two finger white foamy head that dissipated within seconds. The lacing was somewhat there and slid for the most part. The smell was yeasty and malty with a touch of light cocoa inside of a subtle breadiness. The taste was mainly the same thing. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was somewhat subdued and carried a fair rolling smoothness over my tongue. Overall, pretty good altbier I’d have again.
