Dark brown colour, clear, with rubin shine, and a small beige head. Smell is hoppy, vegetable hops, but also a bit resin, and also roasted malts, even some smokeyness. Taste is malty, roasted, some toffee, with a good bitterness too, intense. Full mouthfeel. I don’t know if it’s a perfect Altbier, since I never tried before, but it’s really a very good beer.

MiP (13597) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - AUG 8, 2014
Bottle, 7.5%. Fruity aroma, candylike. Almost clear dark red brown colour. The flavour is caramelly, sweetish. Sugary and candylike, but not sweet as such. Roasted and dry finish.

Bamsen78 (3108) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - AUG 8, 2014
Bottle from McTapps & MichaelAwesome - thank you! Pours slightly hazy dark ruby / copper brown with stable off-white head. Sweetish aroma of malt, caramel and fruit, with notes of dust. Dusty flavour, with sweetish notes of malt and caramel and bitter, hoppy touches. Bitter aftertaste. Well-balanced and enjoyable. Good.

EithCubes (4847) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 7, 2014
500mL bottle from State Line, love to see those recycling rings. Nose is very sweet, thick malt with brown sugar and various Maillard, earth, sticky grapes, light spice, faint roast and just beautiful aromatic complexity. Pours dark brown with a dense and sudsy tan head, lots of lace; really dialing everything in so far. Taste is very sweet with medium bitterness, light grain and a touch of chalk rising above other minerals, otherwise more of the aforementioned deep malt complexity and some low-lying fruitiness -- toffee, faint prune, anise. The bitterness turns somewhat astringent in the aftertaste but it’s not bad, and the hops really come forward with earth, wood, and spice to unleash a massive bite not anticipated by the nose alone. A gritty, lightly dank hop bite, herbal around the edges. Slow-arriving but strong warmth and a little bit of fumy fire from the alcohol. Full body. The presumed decoction might have been boiled a little too long, as the malt starts to resemble broth/bouillon after a while, but otherwise I’d say this is about as perfect a Doppelsticke as you’ll be able to find, and a rival to the best Doppelböcke.

beer_est_deus (646) - örebro, SWEDEN - JUL 21, 2014
Klar, brun-orange med ett skum av små brun-orange bubblor. Doft: Kanderat socker, humle, lager, jord, rostade nötter, lakrits, alkohol. Smak: Malt, humle, jord, bränt socker, svagt av dåligt kaffe, frukt. Gillar öl med beska, dock är beskan i eftersmaken här inte så trevlig. Det påminner om industri lager beska.

oh6gdx (20299) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 21, 2014
Bottled (thanks McTapps!). Deep amber colour, small beige head. Aroma is resin, spruce, some sweet maltiness along with some toffee. Flavour is resin, grass, some toffee, ripe fruits and mild toasted notes. Quite tasty, a bit like a wellhopped doppelbock.

Thinnish body for the style. Medium sweetness of hard caramels, little hop presence. Touch charred. Easy to drink.
