Zlotta (577) - Amstelveen, NETHERLANDS - 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.

aleigator (550) - 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 (4234) - 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.
