2.75/5 rDev -17.4%
Drainpour, bought in Cleveland. Pours dark with faint beads of a head. Malty, raisin and chocolate aroma, and some coca cola. The taste is chcooalte and mollasses, didn't work for me. Middling mouthfeel. Weak for the style. Didn't feel like 10% but some alcohol warming.

Served in a plastic tumbler.
Best or worst name ever. Not really sure which yet. Regardless, it pours a clear russet-amber topped by a half-finger of sandy foam. The nose comprises light maple syrup, toffee, and orange peel. The taste holds notes of toffee, orange peel, and a strange combination of char and rubber. Blechhh, I hope this is just a bad bottle, but no one else around seemed to have the same painful experience I was having. Must just be me. The body is a straight medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a drying finish. Overall, not too big a fan of this. Period.

Poured into a 12 oz. stange glass, which worked perfectly.
Dark, saturated burnt umber tone. Light tan foam, a finger or so, then it settles to a skim with wispy edges. Lace drips its way back into the liquid and hangs around the edges.
Alcohol is somewhat perceptible, along with some toasted malt character and hoppy spice. Bready, tobacco, brown sugar.
Fruity esters surface in the taste, cantaloupe or melon, plum, dried fruit and bitter walnut. Low to medium bitterness, hop flavor is herbal, earthy, and fresh. Very malty, a rich blanket of toasty malt tidal waves across the palate. Carbonation is somewhat low, but it doesn't distract. Definite sipper.

On tap at Sycamore.
A - Poured a clear, dark brown color with a small, tan head of foam. I had lengthy head retention and left patchy trails of lace on the glass.
S - Aroma was floral and malty. Not much else.
T - It had a nice spicy hop bite upon first sip. Very malty flavor with some sweet caramel.
M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A medium bodied brew with a dry finish.
D - O'Fallon had their ABV cap lifted and they've gone big with a 10%+ Wee Heavy and now a 10% Altbier. This is quite good though.

Pours a some what murked up & thick brown/chestnut with a pinky of tan head. Some lacing & average head retention
S: Herbal & woody hops mix with brown bread.
T: Follows the nose along with figs, raisins, dryness & grainy/boozey persimmons up front.
MF: Chewy as all get out, a touch warming, fantastic balance, creamy carbonation & a touch of grainyness. Figs, grainy brown bread, booze & dryness are on parade as this warms. Finishes dry with grainy figs & pomegranate, plus a touch of boozey cherry & some solvent boozeyness as well
Drinkable as a double alt can be. I like where O'Fallon was reaching for on this, I hope we see more such as this in a 4 pack format! A touch warm booze-wise. I would happily pick this up as a seasonal release; if an option

Thanks to emerge077 for this random beer. Served in a stange-like taster glass. A 10% Altbier - hmmm...
A - Transparent caramel brown color with ruby highlights and lots of bubbles. Pours with a dime of off-white foam that settles to a thin ring and a few bubbles on top. A few tiny splotches of lace.
S - Fruity esters, some alcohol, nutty malt character, bread and yeast.
T - Taste is brown sugar, nuts, sarsaparilla, and booze. The alcohol is a little bit too harsh for my liking. I don't like this as much as the nose, as it's sort of solventy and unpleasant.
M - Creamy, viscous body that has a bit of grain to it, low carbonation, a little bit of warmth. Finishes very sticky.
D - I foolishly opened this expecting a nice session beer and didn't notice this was a Imperial Sticke. I'm not sure I've ever had a craving for such a thing. Don't think I'd have this one again, as it took me quite a while to work through all 12oz.

2.85/5 rDev -14.4%
Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into my Sierra Nevada 30th Anniversary tulip.
a - Pours a deep mahogany color with one inch of light tan head and light to moderate carbonation evident.
s - Smells of fruity malts, figs, bready malts, and Play-Doh. Also light nuts and caramel malts. A little odd thanks to the clay/play-doh smell coming through.
t - Tastes of alcohol, nuts, caramel malts, dark fruits, and bready malts. A little too alcoholic, but better than the smell.
m - Medium to full body and low carbonation, thick body and a bit hot.
d - Overall I wasn't too impressed with this one. Something seemed off in the smell; nothing offensive, but not good. Taste was slightly better but the alcohol hurt it. Wouldn't seek out again.

Pours a clear, copper color. 1/4 inch head of an off-tan color. Decent retention and slight lacing. Smells of sweet malt, slight hops, hint of roasted malt, slight caramel malt, and slight pine. Fits the style of an Altbier. Mouth feel is smooth and crisp, with a low carbonation level. Tastes of sweet malt, caramel malt, hops, slight citrus, hint of roasted malt, and a hint of alcohol. Overall, not complex and weak appearance, but decent aroma, blend, and body.

12oz bottle courtesy of russpowell. Thanks Russ!
A 10% abv Alt Bier? Oh well, it's zero F outside, heading for between 10 and 15 below with a ton of snow on the ground and still snowing.
This pours a really dark and murky brown with a small but firm head of off white foam.
The smell is not really strong but I get some dark fruits with some sweet malt. No noticeable bitterness.
Tasting this "beast", yeah, I do get some hop bitterness up front but then it settles nicely into dark fruit mode. Dark pitted fruit, some raisin, really quite fruity and quite hot. Loads of warming with every swallow but welcome: see my intro to my review.
Fairly light bodied, just creeping over into medium territory, the same can be said about the carbonation which makes for a pretty smooth mouth feel.
A sipper for sure but not a chore to drink. I like.

3.68/5 rDev +10.5%
A - Despite the twist off I got a 1/4 inch of head that pulls back to a thick lace ring. Beer is a rich deep amber color, clear and vivid.
S - Caramel malt, touch of biscuit, and a dose of floral hops. Doesn't smell as sweet as I hoped.
T - A bit of caramel malt, dry biscuit malt taste, and some floral hops that rounds out the dry finish I tad but it really fades to nothing. Balanced despite the higher ABV.
M - A tad harsh which I didn't expect for such a moderate ABV. The taste of the alcohol is rather hidden so it is drinkable
Overall a double Alt brewed by O Fallon is not terrible but its just not worth the $3.50 I paid for the single.

12 ounce bottle. Served in a stange glass, the beer pours a murky brownish/red color with about a half inch tan head and some sediment floaties noticable in the glass. Head retention and lacing are both OK. Aroma is bready malt, dark fruit, toffee, and some caramel. I think the taste is similar to the aroma, but there's the addition of some booze, molasses, and a medicinal flavor that was noticable as the beer warmed up more. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, it's slick and syrupy with a good amount of carbonation. The more I drank of this, the less I liked it. I don't think it's a bad brew at all, but in the end I just didn't care too much for it.

A- Inch tan medium tan head on a dark dark red almost brown beer. A lot of crud came out of the bottle with the pour...will drink anyways. Some lacing and a thin head is left throughout the entire drink.
S- Smells like a brown ale, cola-like. Maybe some dark fruits.
T- "Molasses". Dark fruits, no hops detected. Crisp-like spice on the back end...also this is where the 10%abv comes through.
M- Smooth medium mouthfeel. Well carbonated.
D/O- Taste initially was okay. As it warmed the thought of finishing the whole twelve ounces seemed like a daunting task. I agree with whoever said there was a slight "medicinal" taste as it warmed." I should have split this bottle with someone.

12 oz. bottle.
Muddled ruby body is somewhat hazy. Small, short-lived, light beige head. A few bits of lace. Slightly boozy nose, with notes of sugary tropical fruit, Juicy Fruit gum, and a hint of caramel.
Lightly toasted malts up front give way to caramel-tinged fruit. And I mean lots of fruit. Tropical and juicy with ample sweetness. Almost juice-like. Somewhat boozy. Strawberry and cherry juice before a dose of mildly bitter hops in the finish. Warming, with lingering fruity sweetness. Medium-full body with a slightly sticky feel. A little too one-dimensional.

Seemed way too heavy handed for the style - at times knocking on the door of barleywine. Hazy caramel brown. Sweet malt aroma. Up front sweet malt - caramel and brown sugar - followed by a blunt hops bittering, combining for bittersweet finish that was discordant. Boozy alcohol bites at the end. A fair bit of brown sediment at the end of the last pour. Not digging it.

Appearance - pours a dark caramel-red. A thin cover of pale mocha that laces thinly but well.
Aroma - light grain, some faint toastiness and sweetness.
Taste - the grain base starts out decent enough but a little weak on flavor when cold. As it warms up, it has an almost woody flavor. The hops come in quickly and with some nice citrus, on the grapefruity side. Definite snappy bitterness following as some abv heat creeps in. Finishes warm with fading bitterness.
Mouthfeel - bigger bodied than I expected. Good smoothness and pretty crisp as well.
Drinkability - a little strong for extended sessioning, but a pretty good little night cap.

Consumed 11/28 poured in to a pint glass
A: This beer pours a murky, milk chocolate brown. A 1/4 inch of khaki colored head sits on top. Head disappears immediately and leaves no lacing to speak of.
S: Nose is BOOZY! Under the booze, you can pick out a bit of caramel and toffee.
T: Taste is extremely boozy as well. Caramel, toffee and molasses give a real sweetness to the middle of this. Some raisin mingles in.
M: Medium body, medium carbonation, chewy feel with a sticky finish.
D: Goes down ok, big kick, somewhat filling, ok representation of style. I wouldn't grab this one again in the future as the booze is a bit too much for me.

Been in the fridge a while, so...
Pours a chunky amber brown color with a moderate half inch cream head that dissipates quickly.
Aroma is a bit smoky, with phenolic rubber and caramel malt sweetness dominating. There's a hint of floral hop.
Flavor is just not good. Lots of alcohol present, with a slightly burnt malt background and floral hops at the finish. It's a bit bitter.
Body is fairly thick, with low carbonation and a significant astringency at the finish. There's substantial alcohol burn.
Overall, not at all impressed.

Poured from the bottle a dirty mahogany color with floating sediment and a thin off-white head.
Faint malty aroma with a touch of dark fruit and an earthy graininess.
The taste was malty with a bit of dark grains. The 10% was fairly well-hidden. A touch of bitterness in the finish.
Lighter bodied with a sharp carbonation.
A decent Altbier but nothing I must have again.

Pours a deep amber color with a tan head that fades to some lacing. Aroma of malt caramel, dark fruit and hint of alcohol. Taste of malt, caramel sweetness, bit of dark fruit and spice. Mild bitterness with a dry but slightly sticky finish. Fairly medium body, smooth and malty with a definite feel of the alcohol. Enjoyable beer, reminds me of an Altbier but with a extra splash of alcohol.
