Altbeer is not really my thing (miss the carbonation and the mouthfeel) but the taste is indeed full-bodied and complex.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Couleur cuivre vieilli, arborant peu de mousse, cette version Dusseldorf-oise de "vieille bière" est peu odorante (malts rôtis, bois, caramel et pêche), mais elle est plus fonceuse en bouche : une bonne amertume, qui vient couper des malts ronds et caramélisés (cassonnade). Peu de complexité, mais son mordant gustatif compense facilement. Version classique d’un classique, superbe et envoûtant, presque sans faute pour le style.
