Hoser (372) - Cowtown, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 10, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 9, 2007 The best alt I have ever had peppery, malty and incredible. Page 466 of Michael Jackson’s Great Beer Guide and only 231 of his 500 Classic Brews to go.

omhper (22766) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 10, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 8, 2011 Cask at the brewpub. Copper colour, firm creamy head. Dry with distinct grassy hoppiness and clean straight forward malt profile. Full of life and nuances. Lingering, hoppy very bitter finish.

valpoaj (707) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - MAR 7, 2007
Deep mahoghany color with a slowly dissolving thin head. Very hoppy flavor hits immediately and is accentuated by roasted malt with a somewhat bitter aftertaste. Although this was a pretty good beer, it didn’t have the distinct appeal of the Uerige Sticke or Doppelsticke...probably won’t seek this one out again in the near future...

kwoeltje (2233) - Manchester, Missouri, USA - FEB 27, 2007
(bottle) A gush of malt aroma as the top is opened. Dark amber with white head. Flavor is malt and hops, more on the sweet side.

KingpinIPA (841) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 25, 2007
Dark amber color with tiny little partials floating around. Smell of malt, minor citrus, caramel, root beer,yeast and hops. Tastes of hops, roasted malt, caramel, candy, yeast, ginger and a rubber bitterness at the end. A fine beer .

shalloWMeans (169) - Independence, Kentucky, USA - FEB 19, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 25, 2007 This is a beautiful beer, it’s a nice deep burnt amber color, with a medium white head and a nice brown haziness to it. The smell is of yeast, spice, and roast malt. The taste is VERY roasted, caramel, spice, with remote sherry notes. Quite distinct. Anyways, the mouthfeel is silky, smooth and creamy. It is wonderful brew, similar to a doppelbock, but also unlike anything i’ve tasted. I usually come up with one phrase to really describe a beer, and for this one it would be: Roast malt to the extreme!

jpm30 (1587) - East Central, Georgia, USA - FEB 17, 2007
From a embossed, long narrow neck, swing top 11.2 oz. bottle with a bottled on and freshness date on the neck label, sampled a cool cellar temperature in a stange glass. Poured a lightly hazy, reddish copper with a frothy, foamy white head that slowly settled into a thin sudsy lacing, small amount of ringed sticking. Aromas of fruity esters, apples and oranges, roasted grains, a subtle toasted nutty, and medicinal herbal at the edges. Good, steady medium carbonation and a dry, crisp, slightly bitter slick, velvety smooth medium-light bodied mouthfeel. A pleasant roasted malty and bitter taste, sweet, roasted earthy grainy malts, a touch nutty, a light fruitiness, apples, pears, with a subtle citric, leafy, medicinal herbal hoppiness that have a soft, lingering bitterness, and a dry, bitter, earthy grainy finish, the hops wash around the palate in the aftertaste. An excellent Altbier from one of my favorite German breweries, a tasty and balanced German-style ale.

DruncanVeasey (7999) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - FEB 15, 2007
Draught at the brewpub. Deeply red and darkly bitter orange-grapefruit-grainy-fruity. Could almost be Old speckled Hen. By far the bitterest of the Alts I’ve tried. But that quinine-bitter note detracts from the balanced complexity of flavours that makes some of the other Alts so appealing. Whisper it under your breath, but the Weizen’s actually a far tastier and more interesting brew.

MiP (15039) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - FEB 15, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 8, 2013 Draught at the brewpub. Slightly fruity aroma, some spicy hoppiness. Very dark copper colour, almost brown. Unstable head. The flavour also has spicy hops, some sweet malt character and medium bitterness. Easily drinkable. Not complex, but well-balanced. 6 3 6 3 15

From the wood at BBF12. Spicy hop aroma. Clear dark brown colour. Small stable off-white head. Good spicy hop flavour. Clean and good. 7 3 7 3 16

From the wood at BBF13. Good spicy hop aroma. Clear amber/brown colour. Good stable off-white head. The flavour has the same good spicy hop note as the aroma. Flavourful and refreshing. 7 3 7 3 16

BigBen2120 (688) - Derry, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 4, 2007
Small pop-top brown bottle. Somewhat murky amber-orange body with a good inch of head that leaves good lacing. Smells nutty with some other malt. Tastes malty with kind of a peppery/smokey quality to it... Caramel malt is also a big player in the flavor. Rather light in body. Not sure how fresh this one is. Not quite like everyone else is talking about... Nonetheless, not bad, but not great, and I probably won’t be triny this one again unless I find it on tap somewhere.
