NDmullet's rating

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 15/20
NDmullet (208) - South Bend, Indiana, USA - JAN 17, 2003
Medium chestnut colored, thin head, lots of carbonation. Earthy malt and nutty aroma, like a cross between a dunkel and an English brown. Hazelnut and roasty malt flavors are quite distinctive, and intercepted by an adequate bitterness, touch of sourness. Light bodied, not as fizzy as expected, with a lingering finish. My first of the style, and I quite enjoyed it.

ShivanDragon (3864) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - APR 9, 2017
Fles van 0,5l en dat is 0,45l teveel. Bruin/rood met geel/witte kraag, aroma en smaken van gebrande mout, caramel, bruine suiker, gist, donkere mouten, aangebrande caramel, metalig bitter, aards, noten, nee hier maak je mij absoluut niet blij mee.

Zlotta (2878) - Hagen / Bonn, GERMANY - FEB 11, 2017
Sampled from tap at a restaurant. Clear, dark copper with a medium large, foamy, almost stable, off-white head. Sweetish, malty, slightly grassy-spicy aroma of caramel, nuts and some spicy hops. Sweetish, malty, slightly roasty, a bit fruity-spicy taste of caramel, nuts, chocolate and spicy hops, followed by a short, moderately grassy-bitter, quite roasty finish. Over medium-bodied, smooth and slightly creamy mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Quite tasty actually, probably much better from tap than from bottle though.

PietS (221) - Bergen op Zoom, NETHERLANDS - JAN 4, 2017
First time drinking an Altbier: nice combination of a classic pilsener taste with more body, more sweetness and a touch of spices. Malty, sweet, caramel, a bit spices and a hint of coffee/cocoa(?) The aftertaste is quite bitter and hoppy. Good combination and easy to drink.

TrefwoordPunk (1098) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - DEC 18, 2016
Bottle 3 cl. Pours a hazy amber with a medium off-white head and an aroma of roasted malts, bitter hops, toffeem and fish. The taste is slightly sweet with more hoppy and earthy complexities. Kind of nice.

aleigator (929) - GERMANY - NOV 28, 2016
Pours a brilliant hazelnut brown color with a big, froth, white head, which coats the glass the entire time. Smells of toasted rustic bread, a lactic tartness and sweet toffee malts creating a nice harmony on the nose. Drinks soft and light with a pleasantly effervescent finish. Tastes of toasty malts from the very beginning with lots of accompanying whole grain bread crust and a subtle toffee note. Sweeter during the midpalate with a glazed caramel peak, toned down by earth, bakers chocolate and a whiff of leaves. Finishes chocolaty wirh a pleasant dry note, together with earthen malts and an aqueous softness, after the effervescence has left the palate. Very nice, heavily relying on the malts, while producing a surprisongly unique, harmonious and intriguing flavor profile.

adamnowek (2391) - Brussels, BELGIUM - NOV 13, 2016

piwnepodroze (497) - POLAND - NOV 11, 2016
Prezent od Kuby. Bardzo fajne, złożone, a przy tym lekkie piwo. Karmelowe, podpiekane i nieco orzechowe. Zbudowała się potężna i trwała piana. Spoko.

Trolleo (1478) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 18, 2016
Clear dark brown body with huge off-white head. Aroma is iron, some cocoa powder and spices. Very toffee taste, sweet caramel, roasted notes. Watery, soft carbonated. Fine enough, great for a price.
