drpimento (2626) - 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.

adnielsen (10199) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 21, 2015
Bottle @ home, picked up at Supermarket Liquor for $5. Pours a dark reddish brown appearance with a light brown head. The aroma obviously shows age - there’s some cardboard, caramel, dust, yeast and bread. Medium/thin body. A touch of smoke. Kind of burnt flavor. Caramel, burnt wood / ash, a little doughy flavor. Not in great shape now but shows some promise.

cutitoutdave (67) - - APR 12, 2015
Rating refers to Freigeist Ehrenfelder Alt. Pours deep copper from bottle with thin tan head. Caramel malt aroma. Sweet malty flavor with roasted complexities of semisweet chocolate, coffee. Dry finish with nicely balanced hoppy aftertaste, though somewhat smoky. Medium bodied mouthfeel with average carbonation. Unique and unusual beer. A very clean, bitter, dark amber ale.

King_Alex_II (790) - SWITZERLAND - APR 10, 2015
Muddy blackish brown color. The smell is mainly roasted. The taste is dominated by malt aromas that are a little bit too roasted for my taste. The aftertaste is a lot milder. Solid beer, but not my style.
