Served from the bottle into a nonic glass.

A- Poured a very dark reddish brown color with tons of visible carbonation and off-white soapy head that left no lace.

S- Lots of nutty, bready, and grape must notes.

T- Big grape must and fruity notes, nutty, caramel malt, and grainy notes.

M- Prickly carbonation, dry, medium body, and smooth.

O- This is definitely one of the best altbiers I have ever had. It is full of such bright fruity notes and a nice malt backbone with super high drinkability.

This amazing Altbier or brown ale, caught my attention just for being different, i was(am) new to Mecklenburg and not expecting alot gave it a shot. What i got, was an amazing beer one of the best I have had and also a member of a brewery i look forward to exploring. Its dark red appearance really lets you know your drinking a great beer, while its smell is not strong I will happily overlook this factor. Its mouth feel is amazing, probably the best of any beer i have head to date and it really tastes great. This beer is great, and when I have friends from my home area (CT) come visit, i will make sure they have a OMB Copper of there own to try.
