Notes/Commercial Description:
ALTitude – Altbier with Attitude, is a limited edition release of the original recipe for the Headwall Alt. The original pilot batch was smooth, malty, full bodied but too high in alcohol (7.5% abv), to become the “session beer” Headwall Alt. Too strong to be a classic Altbier, but too good to forget, we knew we wanted to one day brew this novel beer again and share it with you. Like the Headwall Alt, the ALTitude is cold conditioned, dry-hopped and krausened in the bottle or keg. The process takes about 60 days.

Shout out to mjn5036. Thanks Matt! 12oz bottle poured into a Duvel tulip. Pruney brown body with a finger of dusty head receding to a wispy cap, spotty lacing. Dark fruits on the nose along with some spice notes. Dark roast flavors abundant alongside strong coffee and dates. Thick full bodied beer with good carbonation to keep it from being too heavy. A very good Alt. I knew nothing about the brewery let alone the beer when I got it. A definite surprise and joy to drink. I'd love to see six-packs of this in my grocery store. A winter seasonal worth looking forward too.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Bottled on 10/01/13, gotta love bottling dates.

Pours a large fizzy frothy thick 2+ finger head that fades pretty slowly, some spotty lacing, very dark mahogany brown color with hints of light coming through.

Nose nice brown malts, little nutty, caramel, syrupy, with some earthy spicy hops, fresh wort, and mild boozy aroma.

Taste brings more brown malts, sweet and a bit syrupy, candy syrup with caramel and nutty flavors, mild boozy taste and warmth, more sweet fresh wort. Also some earthy hops, faint pine and forest floor, mild to fair bitterness. Finish is dry and not really sticky either, mild bitterness, bit more earthy hops, caramel, nutty syrupy flavors lingering.

Mouth is med to a bit bigger bodied, lots of carbonation perhaps a bit too much, touch of booze warmth, bit syrupy.

Overall meh, an OK beer but nothing too special, a bit over carbonated, not hoppy enough for the style, more like a big brown ale than an alt. Then again, it is pretty tasty and enjoyable.

I snagged a couple of single, 12oz bottles of this the other day ($1.60ea ), and have now opted to start quaffin' while out in the 'Zebo as the sun slowly sets...

Poured into an imperial nonic.... The bier has a slight bit of haze, and the color is a deep, dense chestnut. The head is tan and creamy, a fine, tight layer of minute bubbles, lasting quite well. Lacing is present, though not leaving too much behind. The aroma is rich and malty, with healthy levels of caramel and toffee. This brew is fairly smooth on the tongue, and ther body is a standard medium.

Flavor has a good dose of caramel and toasty malts, with intimations of brown bread lightly soaked in dark rum. Seems like a little brown sugar is in the mix, too, and the finish has some earthy hops lingering around. Not overly complex, but tasty and satisfying nonetheless. And the 7.50% ABV is well-hidden. Prosit!!
