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

Senap (433) - 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 (3296) - 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 (1617) - 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 (71) - 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.

jonas (6052) - 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 (2441) - 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.

PapaSkeetSkeet (1000) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - FEB 17, 2015
dark brown, but bright when held to the light. 3mm medium-coarseness head. Fades at a moderate rate to film. Aroma is light mix of caramel, dates, and raisin, some dark sweet-bread dough, with a touch of forest in the background. Body is medium-medium-light, starchy, slightly oily and gritty, medium-light carbonation of moderate coarseness. Light burn but scratchy, prolonged wool texture. Flavor is twig and sap with a light turbinado sugar sweetness, clean. Hint of floral herbs. Pleasant aftertaste of vegetation and wood. Overall, a nice big alt; it doesn’t live up to their description though. I didn’t get any smoke even though it was on my radar.

Bottle share 08/02/15 on IC2012 with Theydon and Wingman, Pours a dark amber to gold with off white head, Notes of malty caramel, hints of mild fruityness, caramel, malts and a hint of dark chocolate. Nice in the snow !

vyvvy (4583) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - FEB 11, 2015
Pours reddish amber with a good sized soapy beige head. The aroma has brown sugar, molasses, horehound candy and the alt slant to the maltiness. It has a medium frothy body with a pretty good amount of carbonation. The taste starts much sharper than the aroma with some metallic/mineral aspects, light spice and weird sharpness. The finish is astringent and offputting. Guess I like this brewery except for their alts.
