TheAlum (6860) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAY 27, 2014
750 ml bottle picked up from the brewery (Munster, IN). Shared with the IU Crew. Pours a rich deep blackish pour, dark and ominous, richly dark. Some gentle brownw glow on the edges. Frothy light brown head sits atop ok, sticks around well and laces ok. Aromas are touches of soap, florals, and oak. Gentle vanilla, warmth, touches of tannic blackberry and richer acetylhyde like green apple issues are pervasive. Some gentle seediness, cocoa and oak. Initial is medium bodied, a touch thinner with some oak, gentle roast and faint cocoa. Firmer blackberry cassis element is a bit seedy, tannic with gentle tartness and roast play. Some nice oak, gentle spirit and vanillin. Some nice blackberry skin really gives some life. Backend is dry, tannic and oaky. Decent whiskey barrel is flavorful but not hot. Green apple tartness, awkward. A bit flawed, something went wrong/is going wrong here.

Bottle thanks to Adam! Pours near black with a dark brown head that dissipates nearly completely. Aroma has a strong apple note with a good amount of roasted malts, some cassis and a bit of barrel. Flavor has a more blackberry with barrel, roasted malts and a bit of apple.

I Love Alpha Klaus but this version was way off,Bottle version it poured brown with a nice tan head but the aroma was like it was spoiled and rotten,the flavor was the same,they should just leave this one alone and stick with the original.CHEERS!
