3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Doesn’t really remind me of true altbier but likea malty amber. It isn’t bad but not on style.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks to Drnk_Mcdermott for this one. Pours burnt sienna with a medium off-white head. Aroma of malt, dark fruit, caramel, cabernet, hops, and slight puke (which makes sense, because puke and dark chocolate both contain butyric acid, and this one had a big dark chocolate taste...I thought it was a schwarzbier before I logged on). Tastes malty, with black licorice, caramel, nuts, some hops, and raw cocoa flavor. Medium palate, with a smooth finish. As it warmed, I got a cherry touch from it. Nice style.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a very dark brown with a thin off-white head. Mild nose of chocolate malt and maybe some dark fruit. Medium bodied, rich chocolate malt flavor, and a little carbonation poking through. Could drink a bunch of these.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. Poured clear cola brown with a short-lived cap of off-white head. The aroma was very sweet with caramel and chocolate leading.. almost a little cherry there, too.. iced tea and cola emerged as it warmed.. very approachable. The flavor was sweet again with chocolate, black patent, and molasses leading.. some earthy and vanilla accents.. bitterness was light, and it was a tad spicy on the back-end. Light-medium bodied with low-ish carbonation on the palate.. scratchy and grainy at times.. OK flow. This was sweet and very easy to drink, but it wasn’t too enjoyable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a very dark practically opaque with a short-lived tan head that subsides into a thin ring. Aroma of sweet dark caramel and milk chocolate with some German bready yeasty character and noble hops. Body starts with a full, heavily carbonated caramel malty sweetness turning more bitter and dry toward the mildly earthy bittersweet finish. Fairly true to style and a nice altbier.
