2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle. Poured a deep mahogany color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of toasted malts, caramel, and maybe some very light citrus. Tastes of caramel and kinda nutty. Thin body. Nothing really stood out either good or bad.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
A vegetable engine runs this chalky, metallic aroma. Something’s amiss, this must be an old model.
Sweet toasted malt imparts caramel and earthiness, but is clearly affected by stale barbarism. Yeastiness and dryness make obvious the lack of hoppiness.
Those good people who fall asleep in the sun.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured a deep brown with a creamy off-white head that receded rather quickly. Picked up caramel, and other sweet roasted malts. Light mouthfeel, and the flavor consisted of some sweet malts and a little woodiness. Medium smooth finish. I am partial to bigger and heavier brews, but this went down remarkably smoothly, and would make a solid session beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thanks to Pjones6738 for this one. I am still not very familiar with Alts but this was pretty good. Nice dark amber with a thin light beige head and some effervescence. Malt and caramel in the nose. Lighter flavor than the deep dark color implies, consisting of malt and caramel (again) with a slight roasted finish. I would have enjoyed this a lot more if it were a little more rich.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Dark caramel, leafy edges, light dusty hops. Stale palate, earthy and dull caramel, bubblegum and void. Flat palate, very sweet. Poor example.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Black center with brown crown, no head or lace. Very earthy aroma, dirty and musty. Burnt malt, smokem and leather hints on nose. Taste is so different from aroma, hoppy and citrusy tones with a light sweet background. Acidic finish. Medium-bodied with a chewy and soft mouthfeel. Well, it's very unique, hard to define brew.
