12 floz bottle. Pours clear and golden orange with a small off white head. Aroma is roasted malty and light overripe fruity. Bitter and toffee malty flavoured. Toffee malty and caramelish finish.

Bottle pour. I’m not even German and I still liked this. Carbonation is what stuck out as a bit weird to me here.

I love, love, love this beer. I wish it wasn’t seasonal. A cool brown kaleidoscope when poured in the glass. Tasty.Not chewy.

Tap. Pour is brown. Aroma of caramel, chocolate, and nut. Taste is bitter and foul. Some caramel comes through but is dominated by a almost sourness of decomposing grass.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - OCT 29, 2012
Bottle. Poured a clear dark brown color with red highlights. The head was thin and tan. Fig, brown sugar, and dark chocolate aromas. Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Delicately sweet up front with mild roasty bitterness at the end. Brown sugar and thin coffee flavors.

Altbier? This is as black as a schwarzbier. Flavor is more remisniscent of a schwarz than an altbier. This would be a decent schwarzbier if classified as such, Altbier? No....

Thanks to swalden28 for sharing this bottle. The beer pours a dark, clear brown color with a tan head. The aroma, as expected, is very malty. I get a lot of bread and toffee, with not too much else going on. The flavor is also very malty. There is a lot of toffee and caramel, with a little bit of chocolate thrown in. There is also a touch of grass from the hops. Overall, the beer is very dry. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

12oz bottle pours an amber/brown with a medium khaki head. Aroma of chocolate and caramel malts, with dark fruits. Taste similar to aroma with some butterscotch and light bitterness. Drinkable.

Pours a dark reddish brown color with some head. Smells of raisins, and chocolate. Tastes of raisins, chocolate and a hint of caramel. Heavy flavoring with a quick finish. Not too bad.

mtjoseph (244) - Murderapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 3, 2011
12oz Bottle. Pours a light colored brown with some amber highlights. Aroma of raisins, coco and some roasted malt. Really light bodied. Dried, dark fruits, bittersweet coco, and water lead the flavors. Pretty fast finish. Enjoyable, but nothing to write home about.
