Gangstergafje (283) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - MAY 31, 2015
The beer has a beautiful ruby red color. The beer is nice and clear. The foam layer is tiny layer remains on top of the beer. The beer smells pretty good. The beer has a sweet aroma. There are nice fruity aroma’s in the beer. He taste also has some fruits and a really full taste. It has a tiny tiny nutty hint. I can’t clearly distinguish al the different aroma’s and tastes. The different tastes are combined in a beautiful brew. Nice.

McSherman (327) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - APR 13, 2015
toller Geruch nach Röstmalz und Hopfen. Im Geschmack recht herb. Das Röstmalz dominiert hier, aber der aromatische Hopfen versteckt sich nicht. Erinnert an geröstete Haselnüsse und schwarzen Tee. Runder Körper und Ausklang. Tolles Bier!

Grzesiek79 (3490) - Radom, POLAND - APR 9, 2015
Many thanks for this swing-top bottle to kevnic2008. Piwo o sporej rosnacej piance, mocno zbitej i bardzo trwalej. Kolor ciemnego bursztynu, bez metnosci. Kramel jakby podpieczony, zkarmelizowany, goryczka wyrazna i dluga. Piwo jakosciowe i bardzo solidne. Ciasteczkowy posmak oraz w zapachu nuty debowe wyczulem.

Port777 (6) - - FEB 27, 2015 does not count
Isn’t it great to pick up the perfect bottle of a great brew when admittingly beer can’t always taste this divine. But this very time, it was definitely the best German Alt beer of all. But again, I am willing to take the risk of buying it again and again.
