Poured up on tap at Kuhnhenn with mahogany body with copper hues and thin almost bright white head. The aroma offers up roasted malts, dry cracker, biscuit malts and some vague sort of hoppy notes. The taste has a nice mix of sweet malts, roasted malts and biscuit malts as well as what seems like a bit of smokiness into the finish. Around the edges of these notes are wafer thin rings of sweet dark fruity esters and some caramel malts.

Tap at pub. Pours brown with thin head that fads fast. Not much aroma. Taste is crisp and slight malt roast

Tap at Rattle for the Kuhnhenn takeover. Pours clear brown. Aroma is on the lighter side, with some earthy notes, some malt, light toast. Dry and crisp with a faint bitterness on the finish. Easy drinking, pretty decent.

jredmond (5259) - Manhattan, New York, USA - MAY 2, 2011
Draft at RnH with Linh and Streets for the Kuhnhenn Total Tap Takeover Event. Pours a hazy amber body with no head but slight white lacing. Aroma is sweet. Mouthfeel is plain with bitter, dry malt notes. Boring.

GTMW 08 - This was a wonderful alt. Pours bronze with a tan head. The aroma had such a fullness to it with malty caramel, toffee and a ton of richness without being cloying. Medium / full body with smoothness and extra gentle carbonation. The flavor starts with dark malt, banana, dark brown sugar and lots of smoothness. The finish linger around with earthy spicy dryness and caramel. I wish I could get more on this one.

Tap GTMW 2008 Absolutely beautiful attempt of the style. Banana, sweet spice, crisp, clean hops and finish. Earthy and nutty, and well hopped too. This is quite good.

Just had this at the GTMW this weekend and i guess they’re bringing it back. Pour is a dark brown with a nice tan head. Aroma was of dark malts and seom candi sugar. Flavor has some caramel and nuts with a bit of wood smoke. A good attempt at this style.

Thanks to hopdog for this... Appears a light, hazy amber with a small white head and little bits of scattered lacing around the glass. Smell is of light sour apples and hops with light amounts of caramel malt coming through. Taste is of the same aromas Mouthfeel is slightly sour with some nutty malt trying to balance it out. Not a typical alt, IMO but not a bad beer.
