Malty aroma. The taste is malty. Some caramel. Balanced. Nice color. Decent but nothing more.

Mooms (57) - SWEDEN - DEC 13, 2014
Taste of roasted malt, not sweet, not bitter, a middle of the road plain taste, suited for session drinking. If it wasn’t from the alcohol strength. A flaw in the aroma: cooked vegetables.

Calisky (1145) - ALSACE, FRANCE - DEC 2, 2014
Trade with McTapps Couleur brune, mousse qui disparait. Nez chocolat, malt toasté, café, caramel (on dirait une porter). Gout malt toasté, moult de café, note de houblon, caramel et épices. Corps assez leger. Fin longue amère et note grillée. Pas mal

mikeyo1 (277) - Linköping, SWEDEN - NOV 14, 2014
Bottle @ home. Aged 1 year. Dark copper to brown color with some haze and a creamy beige to off white head. Sweet and dry aroma with lots of plums, raisons (delicately vinous), caramel, cocoa, herbs, marmalade, nuts and some ash. Nice!. Dry and big bodied for an alt, with a smooth grainy palate. Flavors of chocolate, ash, yeast, some caramel, grains and dark fruits. Mid taste has increasing nuttiness & herbs. Dry earthy and ashy bitter finish with some lingering marmalade.

Ernest (6354) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 31, 2014
Bottle (Freigeist/Goeller labeling). Head is initially small, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is medium to dark brown. Aroma is moderately malty (toasted nuts/bread, caramel, roasted grain), lightly hoppy (herbs). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively/soft carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Pretty uneventful...decent enough aroma but kind of simple. Not particularly enjoyable to drink...flabby mouthfeel and mild flavors. Instantly forgettable.

ElDesmadre (1716) - Mikołów, POLAND - OCT 30, 2014
Bottle. Exploits the darker aspects of the style. Caramelly and floral aroma with lots upon lots of fresh cut grass. Light sweetness and a nice, residual sticky mouthfeel. Quite a chocolatey flavour finishing with an underlined bitterness. Tasty.

Really nice crisp malty caramel toasty flavor. Perfect fall beer. Would pair well with grilled meat as well.

crossovert (7961) - Illinois, USA - OCT 9, 2014
500ml bottle. Bottle is misspelled "Ehrenfeider". It ahs a very dark pour and a murky brown appearance. The head is small and sudsy off-white. The smell is cocoa and roasted malt, fruity hops, very much like an american brown ale. This is a thick-bodied altbier right form the get-go. It is crisp and dry though with ashy roast notes, licorice, and a heavy-handed hop bitterness that is almost puckering, heavy herb and grass bitterness notes. Really nice meaty malty altbier.

Gorm (1464) - Sandnes, NORWAY - OCT 6, 2014
Dunkel mørk brun farve med lite lys beige skum. Lukt av røstet malt, karamell og frukt. Smak av røstet malt, karamell og frukt. Ganske bitter. Systembolaget.
