Appearance: pours a copper to reddish color. a two finger plus foamy tannish head. good retention leaves behind a small frothy lacing. a bit of chill haze that makes the beer just short of clear, some nice brightness when held to the light.

Smell: strong malty aroma. lots of toastiness, lots of crystal malt sweetness giving off notes of dark fruits to caramel and some burnt sugar.

Taste: opens with some strong maltiness, toasted grains and crystal malts. crystal ranges from caramels to dark fruits and some burnt sugar. small amount of herbal to earthy hop character.

Mouthfeel: full body feel. nice balance despite the large amount of crystal malts. ends slightly bitter.

Overall: a nice alt but I think the malts don't quite make it for me. I prefer the more traditional german malts. the crystal sweetness just doesn't do it for me. nice body and balance though.

Impressive dome-like head. Starts at three fingers thick and settles ever so slowly. Plenty of matrixed lace as the head recedes. Deep, dark copper color. Hazy.

Smell of sweet caramel sugar. Predominately crystal malt toastiness to the nose.

Tastes like an amber ale with a strong hop finish in the swallow. Not nearly sweet as the smell would suggest. The caramel flavor are still present but they are quickly offset by the white pepper bitterness that shows up in the swallow. Moderate aftertaste length. Darker than many alts, but it works.

Poured from a 750mL bottle, production date of July 3rd 2015. When poured it produces a deep cuprous body with off-white head, and is fairly opaque. The scent is heavy on medium-roasted malts with a few noble hop aromas coming up as well. The taste is heavy again in toffee malts with and a deep hallertau hop tone. The feel is fairly smooth, with a bit of additional bitterness and heavy carbonation. Overall it is a pretty great show from the Série Signature, really impressed by the diversity of beer that LTM is putting out.

Red/amber in color with a nice bubbly head. Smell of sweet malts, molasses, caramel. In the mouth I instantly noticed a black fruits taste, followed by some caramel malts. I find that it's a little bit too sweet, but it'S not bad.

Veiled copper color with faint activity but light detritus. Creamy light brown 2.5 finger head lasting around 10 minutes with strong legs.

Aromas and flavors of caramel, fruits, grains, floral and herbal spices. Strong delicious sweet fruity orange and grapes/raisin taste. Pleasant bread like and biscuity feel with a perfect dose of spices.

Slick light body with moderate carbonation. Well intensified balanced finish ending with a slightly bitter herbal saaz feel and delicate caramel sweetness.

Overall an excellent craft; complex delicious flavors, appealing smell and look, good freshness, accessible...a pleasure to drink!

Poured into a beckera deep amber brown with a full one and a half finger off white head.Big brown sugar and prune in the nose with a just a light touch of herbal hops...very light.Flavors start out somewhat sweet with brown sugar and toffee with a drying doughiness coming in halfway keeping the sweetness somewhat in check.Seems bigger than what it is to me,a little sweet but not bad overall.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Poured from 750 mL bottle into shaker pint glass.
A: Pours a clear brown-amber hue with super high carbonation producing a 5+ inch off white head. About a 3:1::head:beer ratio.
S: Sweet caramel malt, toffee, fig, and a hint of spice (?cinnamon, ?nutmeg).
T: Super sweet caramel malt and several off notes. Could be this one is past date.
M: Light body. Loads of caramel sweetness. Moderate pine hop bite.
D: I believe this one is likely past its best by date. Still, this seems fairly straight forward, very malt driven, and not well balanced.
