Zlotta (77) - Bonn, GERMANY - NOV 16, 2014
0,5 l, bottled on 10/11/14 (really fresh!). Crystal clear, dark reddish brown. Thick and creamy, off-white, stable head. Sweetish fruity aroma of caramel, candy sugar, raisins and prunes. It is intense and harmonic. Taste is a bit weaker. Only slightly sweet with hints of caramel, roasted malts and grains. Crisp, medium bitter finish. Medium-bodied, average carbonation. Delicious beer but the aroma promised a bit more. Nevertheless easy to drink.

From gravity (Plastic) keg @ In De Wildeman. Had this before bottled (several times) and on tap @ the brewery (once), but that was a long long time ago. Clear deep brown color. Light beige, uneven, sticky head with good lacing. Aroma’s: caramel malts, red fruit, fruitcandies, with grain/malt retronasal. Flavor is moderae bitter, somewhat grainsh, and hardly any sweetness. Light bodied. Finishes a bit dry, rather bitter, a bit grainish.

aleigator (265) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - NOV 2, 2014
Has a foamy, decent, long staying head, while its color is defined by a lovely dark brown color, in which red glowing hints are visible. Nose is full of malt defined aromas, very bready with hints of tobacco and a slightly sour peak of fresh yeast. Beginning is very soft on the palate, with lots of earth and whole-grain bread, while a subtle biscuit touch adds sweeter hints to it. Malt body then turns particular bitter for an Alt, still accompanying the malts. Finishes with slightly sour, soft yeasty hints, while a dry, bitter hop note becomes more present. Inconvenient bitter, very complex, with a distinct flowery, dry hop note amongst a bready malt body.

tom10101 (3017) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 24, 2014
On tap @ Zum Uerige. Dark amber/copper with a small off-white head and good lacing. Aroma is of light caramel, some spiciness, earthy notes, toasted malt and hints of fruits. Taste is similar with a little more toasted presence and a little more caramel too. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Mild lingering spicy finish. Some bitterness too. Good. On the "spicy" side for an Altbier. Quite tasty.

Luk_ (203) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 16, 2014
Brown gold with white head and nice lacing. Aroma is hoppy, caramel and herbs. Taste is earthy and bitter with some caramel sweetness. Good, but I expected more from this reputable brauhaus.

Erzengel (3439) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - OCT 16, 2014
Malzig-würzig, frisch. Sehr herb, dabei malzig-süßlich mit leichten Karamellnoten. Der Nachgeschmack ist deutlich herb, leicht trocken-würzig, toll ausgewogen. Lecker!
