Bottle shared by nuplastikk. Thanks. Caramel and toffee with a little wood. Really decent beer. I would love to delve deeper into this style.

Alaskan makes the only altbier I’ve tried before this one. This is much, much better although I’ve found I don’t love the style. Sampled at World of Beer Fest, Milwaukee.

Aniela (3613) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 5, 2015
Bottle. Murky shit (as my friend ChrisO would say) with an offwhite head. . Malty bready grassy aroma. Caramell malty bready flavour. Really a bad beer...

Senap (464) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAY 22, 2015
Tämligen traditionell i stilen, en ton av sötma och en aning bränt. Mörkt brun och en aning grumlig. Funkar.

Eructoblaster (3358) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 30, 2015
Bottle - 500ml. Hazy dark copper body with a thin off-white foamy head. Nice malty aroma with fruity, brown sugar, and vanilla hints. Its robust malty/hoppy taste carries oaky notes. Ends with a long bittersweet finish. Interesting.

niquillis (1778) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - APR 23, 2015
Bottle from McTapps, thanks Sabine. Pours mud brown with a little sediment. Supposedly a hoppy altbier, typical boozy alt no additional hop kick. It’s Ok but nothing special.

vidmidia (85) - Vila Velha, BRAZIL - APR 13, 2015
Marrom escura, quase opaca. Espuma abundante de curta duração. Aroma de ameixas e lúpulo, levemente amadeirado. Sabor amadeirado com notas de ameixas e melado. Retrogosto com final ácido, ligeiramente defumado. Muito saborosa.

Erzengel (5490) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - APR 3, 2015
33cl, brewed by Göller. Fresh intense, slightly malty beer. Intense fruity, fresh. Nice bitterness, not too intense, nice moderate sourness. Fresh, nice bittered.

jonas (6099) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - MAR 20, 2015
0.33l bottle. Chestnut, offwhite head. Fruity and hoppy aroma with nutty and wooden undertones, a bit dubbel-like. Medium body, quite dry chewy body, some sparkles. Wood/barn dryness, chestnuts, citrus from the hops, light berries. I’m not too fond of the dry minerally notes, but it certainly packs some flavors.

jb (2508) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAR 3, 2015
Bottle from Nathanial’s. Medium chestnut brown, Very murky. Thin head, spotty soapy lacing and zero retention. Nose has a lot going on, plenty of dark fruit, caramel, some spiciness. Mouthfeel is semi balanced with the carbonation acting as a foil for the sweetness. But it is still a bit too sweet. Overall this is missing something after showing promise.
