SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - DEC 13, 2011
22oz bottle. Dark brown with a lastig beige head. Lots of chocolate and spicy hop flavor. Some alcohol. Doesn’t have the intense bready malt that I associate with a big alt but I don’t think they were going for that. Really just a big American brown ale. Not bad though.

Cory (239) - , California, USA - APR 14, 2014
Bottle. Aroma is seaweed, earthy, wet grass, and smoke. The bitterness really seems to take away from this beer as it feels a little like your drinking charcoal. There are less sweet notes and more dry ashy ones. I think the earthy Altbier is good but doesn’t really stand out as something I want a whole pint of.

dslam (22) - surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 28, 2014
Poured from a 6 oz bottle. Dark brown with good amount of head. Visible carbonation bubbles dancing their way up. Nice and smooth taste with lasting bitterness. The bubbles form a nice frothy layer which slowly releases the flavor on contact. Overall an easy drinking beer with a good delivery mechanism, but lacks the flavor punch, or the subtlety is lost on me.

pictoman (370) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 28, 2014
Poured from 1 pint 6 fl oz bottle. Clear, amber brown with full beige head. Aroma of toffee and caramel, some light nuts. Taste same with mild hops and a wintery balanced flavour. Medium body.

Oakes (11842) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 25, 2014
Muddy dark brown. No head. Aroma is a little bubblegummy. Sweet and bubblegummy, the malts are maybe a bit of caramel. Touch if chocolate but the overt sweetness of this brew and the phenols are entirely in the wrong direction.

suprchunk (1955) - Crestview, Florida, USA - MAR 16, 2014
Dark toffee color with ruby highlights. Small off-white head. Plenty of lacing. Nice aroma of malt, dark fruit, nuts. Taste is malty with a nutty presence. Slightly bitter finish with a bit of malt and pepper.

Atom (1212) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 16, 2014
12oz bottle pours a dark brown with ruby highlights and a small khaki head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, nuts, dark fruits, and slight cocoa. Taste of caramel and toffee, dry roasted nuts, dark fruits, with a mild bitterness. Nice balance, pretty tasty!

Tmoney99 (10093) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 1, 2014
Bottle shared by Beerpig317. Poured clear light brown color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with fair lacing. Moderate roasted sweet malt aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration.

b3shine (4447) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 26, 2014
Bottle to snifter (shared by beerpig317). Looks good for the style; a translucent dark amberish brown with thin light beige lacing. Smells of smooth dark malt and light dark fruit. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

alexsdad06 (4540) - Ohio, USA - FEB 26, 2014
12 oz bottle shared by beerpig317. Pours a clear dark amber/copper color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have big malty, bread, caramel with mild earthy notes. Decent enough. Pretty one dimensional.

arminjewell (5718) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 18, 2014
Pour on tap, dark reddish brown pour with slightly off white head, aroma brought notes of dark fruits, spice, lots of yeasty notes going into caramel, toffee, molasses notes, hints of grain, dark cherry, dark fruits as well. Taste is a mix of dark berry, cherry, hints of molasses, slight nuts into caramel, toffee, spice, finishing fairly sweet.
