NDmullet (208) - South Bend, Indiana, USA - JAN 17, 2003
Medium chestnut colored, thin head, lots of carbonation. Earthy malt and nutty aroma, like a cross between a dunkel and an English brown. Hazelnut and roasty malt flavors are quite distinctive, and intercepted by an adequate bitterness, touch of sourness. Light bodied, not as fizzy as expected, with a lingering finish. My first of the style, and I quite enjoyed it.

minutemat (1878) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2014
500ml bottle, thanks to Beerhunter111! Pours clear chestnut brown with thin head. Nutty wood varnish aroma. Something not quite right about the taste here, stale hops maybe..? Thin & watery too. Two months before BBD but I think this has sadly reached the end of its life. Shame.

Alengrin (2425) - BELGIUM - AUG 15, 2014
Classic Alt with pale beige, moussy, sticky, firm and stable head and deep, warm copper colour, clear with steady but calm sparkling. Dried fruits and lots of caramel- and nut-like malts in the nose, sundried tomatoes, passion fruit, hazelnuts, soap, leather, jute, rosewater, lavender, grass. Dryish fruitiness in the onset, medium carbonation, minerals, deep nutty maltiness, finishing in a long finish of spicy, peppery hops. Perfectly suitable as an introduction to this ancient style.
