Very smooth finish. Very enjoyable to follow up with a second. This beer has a very nice color with a refreshing aroma where you detect a bit of the roasted malt. Our beers were poured with a very nice head. tourette (225) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 7, 2013
This is a fantastic alt. Really nutty and smooth with a great creamy body. I could drink this all night.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours lightly cloudy ruby red color with a 1 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of caramel, toffee, toast, brown bread, plum, apple, light nuttiness, light chocolate, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/bready malt, earthy hops, and yeast ester notes; with good strength. Taste of caramel, toffee, toast, brown bread, light chocolate, light nuttiness, plum, apple, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Light earthy herbal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toffee, toast, brown bread, light nuttiness, light chocolate, herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness and complexity of dark/bready malt. earthy hops, and light-moderate yeast fester flavors; with a nice malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and moderately creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice altbier. All around good robustness, balance, and complexity of dark/bready malt, earthy hop, and light-moderate yeast ester flavors; and very smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering. harry_burgers (1) - - JUL 25, 2012 does not count
Appealing yeasty aroma, but very dark for style and brewer’s description. Yeast carries over to the mouth. Malty with some residual sweetness libertine (433) - rochester hills, Michigan, USA - SEP 1, 2012

Bottle. Pours a light amber with a white head. Aroma of malt and hops. Flavor the same with a nice finish. Overall a solid beer. skoll (420) - Traverse City, Michigan, USA - JUN 9, 2012
I had this one at the Turtle creek casino in Williamsburg MI short pour nice light brown with good aromas wafting out of my plastic cup. Nice malty taste clean finish also. Gota get more of this. johnnyoski (445) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - OCT 29, 2012
Bottle. Dark amber pour with a thin tan head that quickly disappears. Traces of sediment eventually settle to the bottom. Aroma is sweet fruit, caramel with toasted malt. Initial dry, malty flavor is balanced nicely by a sweet, ripe fruit finish. Has average carbonation despite its flat appearance and leans more towards medium bodied. Well worth a try.

Pour from a 12oz bottle, 6 pack from Hardings. Medium amber brew with dense off white head. Aroma of brown sugar, over-ripe fruit, some hops. Taste is interesting and complex - brown sugar, molasses, toast, hints of chocolate, modest bitter in the finish that dries up most (but not all) of the sweetness. Complex, well crafted, and interesting - what’s not to like?
