A dark brown color, this beer looks a lot like cola both in the color and the bubbling near-effervescence. The off-white head spritzes down quickly, and it looks more soda-like as the edges lighten and thin. There's not much lace, but a little.
There's a mingling of tangy and sweet on the nose, toasty and nutty in a particular way, with an unusual note I can only think of as grist. There's a slight dry bitterness, too.
The flavor brings a bit more roast, downright toasty in the middle, with strong notes of dry and soft malts and grains. There are fruity esters throughout, a little leafy bitterness that seems almost woody as it dries, and a finish of baker's chocolate.
The body is just short of effervescent and rests on the border of light and medium. It's starts off with the promise of a bigger body, sweetness, maybe even creaminess, but dries out (which is nice) and still keeps some smoothness. It does go a little thinner than the style calls for, but all in all it's good stuff.

4.04/5 rDev +9.8%
Bottle purchased at Chocolate and Vines in Rochester, NY.
Pours a reddish brown color, with a small 1/4 inch head, and no lacing.
Smells like honey, caramel, chocolate, and molasses.
This is a pretty solid altbier. Not entirely sure how "authentic" it is, with the addition of molasses and flaked oats, but it's still tasty. I get nice tastes of cocoa powder, caramel, pumpernickel bread, nut, toffee, and a spicy, grassy hop bitterness.
Light to medium bodied, with a crisp, smooth mouthfeel, only slightly creamy, and a fairly strong amount of carbonation.
Off Color continues to impress me so far.

12 oz. bottle poured into a chalice.
Appearance - Dark brown body. Small off-white head. Settles to a very thin collar.
Smell - Nutty brown malts, some chocolate. Honey. Wheat grain lends some brighter aromas.
Taste - Lots of dark caramel and nutty brown malts. Honey is strong and gives it a lighter and sweeter feel. Deep molasses-like sweetness.
Mouthfeel - I drink this very quickly. Nicely drinkable and pleasantly sweet without being cloying. Medium carbonation.
Overall - Simple and unassuming beer, but it's well made and balanced.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a Ayinger Celebrator glass
A: Dark brown with a 1.5-finger head
S: Roasted malt, some burnt, a hint of cocoa and earth
T: Matches the nose. Not too much complexity
M: Medium-bodied but a bit thin
O: No flaws but I expected more given the extensive ingredient list. Only my second time trying an altbier so glad to have the chance to try another

KHad in a bottle poured into a Troegs Chalice.
A-Dark brown. Little head that dissipates quickly.
S- brown sugar, bread, hint of chocolate
T-very bland, hint of brown sugar, black berry, and banna.
MF- tingly like bottles soda on the roof of your mouth
Overall, it was okay. Wasn't impressed. It taste like it's going to be amazing in the beginning and then just falls off into blandness.
