A bit hollow. Slight metallic taste. Looks good in a glass, and starts off an evening on the right foot.

javiercrasher (269) - Granada, SPAIN - MAY 25, 2016
De color marrón rojizo con una capa de espuma beis de retención media. Maltosa, con fondo ligeramente ahumado. Cuerpo medio y poca carbonatación. Moderadamente amarga, acaramelada con algo de fruta madura. Muy sabrosa. Sin rastro de lote, ni fecha de embotellado ni caducidad.

rumproasts (4720) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - APR 11, 2016
bottle. Brown with one finger head. On the thin side, malty with nutty roast, and bit of astringent smokiness. Quite a bit of oxidation and cardboard. Finishes dry. Just seems slightly off.

Zlotta (1331) - Amstelveen, NETHERLANDS - MAR 28, 2016
0.5 l bottle as ’Freigeist Ehrenfelder Alt’ from ’REWE Budnik & Homberg’. Clear, dark red with a medium large, frothy, almost stable, tan to white head. Musty, sweetish and slightly roasty aroma of cardboard, caramel and nuts. Sweetish, slightly roasty taste of caramel, nuts, some bread and chocolate, followed by a short, slightly roasty-bitter finish. Medium body, smooth and slightly creamy mouthfeel, soft to average carbonation. Decent, might be better fresh.

ThirstyBird (2516) - Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2016
Bottle from erzengel - Thank you!! Pours a orange/brown with some haze and a tan head. The smell is roasted malt, brown sugar and some fruit. The taste is toasty, crisp fruit, brown sugar ending dry and roasty. Light+ in body with average carbonation. Not bad.

JoeMcPhee (9169) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 12, 2016
Deep brown pour with a very lift carbonation. A rich toasty malt aroma with a bit of toffee and clean yeast profile. There’s a touch of oxidation but still some clean toasty character. The hops just add a woody accent to the malt sweetness. Straightforward and tasty alt.

Pailhead (6278) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - DEC 18, 2015
Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate caramel, toffee, light fruit, smoke (although I didn’t initially notice it until after I took a drink) and faint nuts. It pours a dark brown that becomes a transparent reddish-brown when held to the light. It has a small beige head that fades to a thin film outlined by a soapy ring. There is some thin webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with very mild caramel/toffee. There is a quick dose of light fruit in the middle. The finish has light smoke with some hints in nuts to barely sneak past the smoke. It’s light-medium bodied with mild carbonation.

drpimento (2893) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 8, 2015
Great, rich, dark malt aroma. Flavor’s somewhat similar with plenty of malt, but has a very long strong bittersweet finish. Palate is a touch thin and chalky. Still an enjoyable, good drinking brew.
