4/5  rDev +8.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from 12 oz. bottle into a Sam Adams "Perfect Pint" glass. Bottle says enjoy by 11-01-12.

Appearance: Pours a deep mahogany amber orange with a lot of rising bubbles. Huge five finger off white head with very good retention. Leaves a lot of lacing around the glass.

Smell: A malt driven and fairly earthy aroma. Toasted malts with good hints of biscuit, caramel, toffee, toasted bread, and yeast. Subtle hints of chocolate and nuts as well as a slight hint of dark fruits. Some earthy and grassy hops add some spicy bitterness. A very bready smell.

Taste: Like the smell indicates, a good mix of bready malt flavors backed by some earthy bitterness. Toasted malts with a taste of bready biscuit, toast, caramel, toffee, yeast, and nuts. Light taste of chocolate roast and a little dark fruit. Solid presence of earthy hops and grass that add some spice. A very bready and malty taste but its more of a dry bread taste than sweet. Solid.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Creamy and smooth. Has a very drying finish.

Overall: A solid tasting Alt. Big bready malt taste with a nice earthy character.

3.63/5  rDev -1.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Clear amber, big head.

Smell: Toffee, toasted bread, touch of fruitiness.

Taste: Toasted bread, earthy, mild underlying sweetness.

Overall: Picked up a single, I figured it had a better chance of still being fresh than the other Mankato bottle. Not a bad beer but not in my favorite flavor profile , malty and earthy. A good beer for a change-up in the wintertime. I'll have to keep an eye out for other Mankato offerings.

Picked up a single at Four Firkins. Ah, what a nice surprise, a very tasty sticke from Mankato. This mahogany beer had a milder caramel malt and light spice aroma, but really opened up in the flavor. It was a mix of caramel malt and mild cherry and berry esters, with a dry toasty edge, and then the herbal hop bite. It's on the cleaner side of the style, but a very tasty example. Check this beer out.

Thanks to cpolking for the hookup with this beer. Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a dark brown color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is malty, some caramel. Taste is malts up front, a bit of nuts, hop bitterness present at the finish. Feels full bodied in the mouth and overall is an enjoyable beer.

Pours a clear brown color with an attractive two finger head that had good retention before settling to a thick cap. Quite a bit of sticky lacing is left down the glass. Aroma is earthy and grassy from the hops. Also some caramel and toast. This is definately more bitter than other altbiers. Hops dominate the front end with the earthy bitterness. Toasted and caramel malt comes in near the finish. Just the slightest bit of sweetness in the finish. Just a bit lighter than medium bodied with nice, lively carbonation.

Different from any other altbier I have had before with its hop presence. Another fine brew from Mankato.
