Pours a brown color with a light brown head. Aroma is of roasted malts. Flavor is malty with roasted malts, and a slight bitter finish. CaptainCougar (7634) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 2, 2007
Pours a transparent dark copper amber with a spotty-lacing, wispy light tan head. Aroma of lightly sweet, toasty, caramel and Munich malts has a touch of noble hops. Starts fairly sweet and earthy caramely with nice lightly floral noble hoppy balance toward a bittersweet earthy finish with some light fruity esters. A nice altbier. goldtwins (4319) - Nesconset, New York, USA - MAY 2, 2007
Poured a clear brown copper color with a small tan head. The aroma had a hint of roast some light chocolate, light fruitiness and some alcohol which could be from the temperature this was served at. The flavor had a little fruitiness but dried out fast with an eathy hop at the finish. Mild to moderate bitterness. Light to medium body. Tmoney99 (15137) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 26, 2007
Bottle. Poured clear brown color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with fair lacing. Moderate roasted caramel and sour citrus aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture. Medium bitter flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. hotstuff (5281) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - APR 24, 2007
Bottle. Small tan head that mostly diminished, minimal lacing, visible carbonation, transparent, and a ruby hue Nose was malty, sweet, roasty, burnt, some smoke notes, and chocolate notes. Flavor was sweet, alcohol well hidden, malty, chocolate, watery-thin, roasty, and burnt. Finishes with a roasty, burnt aftertaste that does not linger for a long time. Mouthfeel was smooth, watery and thin. Light body. Decent, quaffable brew. Just sort of a so-so brew for me.

I like altbier’s, and I really like other Two Brother’s beers I’ve tried, so I was really excited when I heard about this one. It was pretty good, but I couldn’t help feeling a little disappointed by this beer.
It pours a coffee brown with a very minimal head (less than a cm). Aroma is light, pleasant, and toffee-ish. Flavor is slightly sour and heavily caramel-y...more like a bock than I expected. The sourness seems slightly off to me, and I must say that the mouthfeel is over-carbonated, which is odd given the small amount of head when I poured it. This beer is also sticky in your mouth, which in my opinion is consistent with the style. Still, I must say i was a bit disappointed with the flavor of this beer. jaymobrown (1845) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 21, 2007
Poured a thick deep tanned leather color. Lots of off-white head. Lots of light apple spice, brown sugar, and caramel notes in the nose. Thick oat, malt, caramel with a hint of bitterness and fruit in the flavor. Not overstated and quite balanced. Enjoyable. 22 oz bottle. Quite pleased with this pick up.

Deep ruby red color. Minimal head. This beer just doesn’t seem too exciting initially but as it warms it gets better. I am getting a lot of cherry fruitiness, and a bit of malt, but not much else. Body is decent. Chocolate is there as well. Soft chocolate malts show up at the end, and they are delicious. Anyway, I’m gonna drink it up and give an RIP to Victor. Heres to old school farmers that care about quality! Aurelius (5662) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 18, 2007
Dark brown, almost cola. Couldn’t get a read on the aroma -- cigaretty bar. Very grassy, unpleasantly tart and bitter. This seemed like a homebrew experiment gone awry. Light cherry undertones. Thin. Move on. Disappointing in one of my favorite categories. On tap, Clarke St Ale House, Chicagor, Winston trip. holdenn (2127) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 17, 2007
22 oz bottle sampled thanks to xnoxhatex. Pours a murky brown with a little head. Nutty carmel malt aroma. Malty/nutty flavors as well, with a little bakers chocolate. Not bad but not great either, its beer right? sure i’ll drink it.
