The beer pours a hazy brown color with a tan head. The aroma is full of toffee malt, with a hint of grass and some earth thrown in. The flavor similar. I get a lot of toffee notes, as well as some grass and ice-tea character. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. I am not a huge fan of altbiers, but this one was pretty good.

Bottle to snifter (thanks tmoney99). Looks decent; a transparent brown with thin white lacing. Smells weird; not good, not bad; just weird. Some sweetness and hoppiness in there. Tastes like it smells, but milder (for better or for worse; I’m not sure which). A little thin for my liking, especially for what it smells like. Average (at best) on the palate. Meh.

PorterPounder (5712) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 2, 2014
Atlanta, Ga. - Tower Beer, Wine & Spirits - 22 oz bomber. Murky dark orange pour, very light off white head clings to the edge of the glass. Aroma is sweet, with some dates and prunes, a touch of banana. Flavor leans to the sweet side of the spectrum with dates and raisins being the most prominent. Pick up some ripening vegetables similar to what one would find in an Oktoberfest. Somey bready yeasty notes round it out. Not feeling it on this one - Full Sail usually impresses me.

(22oz bomber) clear amber, ring of fine white bubbles. Nose of caramel/honey, honey comb, sweet bread, just smells sweet. Taste of light earth, cracker, butter, creamy carbonation.

Bottle. Dark copper with a short, foamy tan head. Aroma is hoppy and slightly spicy with caramel notes, grains, bread and grassy notes. Taste is caramel, spicy hops, grassy notes, earthy hops, sweet malt and bread. Body is medium with a strong, fizzy carbonation. Finishes with more caramel, grains, bread, sweet malt, soft fruit notes, earthy hops and grassy notes.

kramer (5107) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 6, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear dark amber body with a one finger frothy off-white head that fell to a wispy film. The nose is pretty full of vienna maltiness with just a light touch of fruitiness and minimal hops. It actually smells a bit old and lightly oxidized, but there’s nothing in the little ’enjoy by’ space allotted to give me this info. The flavor isn’t really oxidized though, but it is a bit overly husky and grainy with a little light roast coffee and burnt caramel. The hops are pretty minimal here as well, with just a light bitterness towards the back end. Lighter bodied with a slightly clingy texture and fizzy carbonation. This one just didn’t do it for me. It’s really hard to find a good Altbier.

Strykzone (5074) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - NOV 29, 2014
Bomber from Hayduke that we had together via facebook chat. This beer is pretty much clear and deep amber. A beige head sits atop. I wish the aroma were bigger. It brings grain, caramel, and a little fruit. Flavor is grain with caramel and some harshness. At some point a little fruit pops in along with dark fruit. Some sourness in the finish of each sip. Some nuttiness is tasted late. Towards the finish the hops moved up into a nice balance. Just a hint of mintiness there, too. This was certainly a modern take on an Alt and it was a nice one.
