Thinnish body for the style. Medium sweetness of hard caramels, little hop presence. Touch charred. Easy to drink.

Zlotta (3820) - Hagen / Düsseldorf, GERMANY - NOV 20, 2017
0.5 l bottle from 'Britische Biere', I believe it's 2015 vintage. Clear, deep ruby with a medium large, frothy, stable, beige head. Sweetish, intensely malty and quite fruity aroma of molasses, raisins, prunes, figs and a touch of resin. Very sweet, malty, quite fruity taste of raisins, prunes, figs, molasses and some burnt sugar (don't get any smoke which is mentioned on the label), followed by a medium long, moderately bitter, slightly boozy finish. Medium to full body, almost oily mouthfeel, very soft carbonation. Rich and heavy, very pleasant beer for the cold days.

I do not think it is the right alt beer, it is something totally different in style, it is like an ale, stout-ish, something between barley-wine and a little bit lager, but was hoppy a lot. No compare to other Alt beers I ve tried. But if we forget it is alt beer, the beer is good, with aroma, sweetness, you cannot feel the alco, it is malty, hoppy... smells of quality.

Aroma is caramel, molasses, dark fruit, slight booze, it smells great. Appearance is dark brown, hazy, light brown head. Taste is robust, dark fruit, caramel, booze, earthy hops, roasted malt, molasses, strong but good. Mouthfeel is medium body, light carbonation, a pretty bitter but sweet aftertaste. Overall, this is pretty good.

JPDIPSO (6286) - Wauwatosa, USA - JAN 30, 2017
Dense chestnut color with a moderate, but stable sized dark beige head. Big sweet malt scents. Some mild resin and smoke. A bit meaty. Flavors start with dark caramel, and a bit of wintergreen. Smooth and thick, with enough zip to keep it lively. Finish is rather dry, yet the linger has some nutty and toasted malt. Nice Alt. 12/12

rumore (766) - Rimini, ITALY - OCT 25, 2016
From bottle. Beer pours dark brown, with little cappuccino foam. Aroma is inviting, with cherries and fruits under spirit. Body is medium. Taste is wonderfully balanced between sweet and bitter, going from the former to the latter. More feelings, like some chocolate and licorice. A great beer!

Chudwick (3367) - Taylor Mill, Kentucky, USA - OCT 14, 2016
16.9oz bottle - nose is nutty, caramel and a little spice bread. Tastes like old old ale. Tasty but just a tad off. Can’t find a date to check. Sweet.

Svesse (8803) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JUN 22, 2016
(Bottle) Dark reddish brown colour with frothy, beige head. Malty, slightly toasty nose with crisp-bread, burnt sugar, treacle toffee, a touch of rye and caramel. Malty, roasted taste with notes of burnt sugar, caramel, treacle-toffee, some coffee, crisp-bread, toast and a gentle spicy bitterness in the finish. More than medium body, with a touch of sweetness. Possibly and bit hard and aggressive, but interesting and quite tasty. Quite nice.

Bottiglia, una cannonata di malto mitigato da altrettanto luppolo...da non sottovalutare
