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

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.

GLASS: Stange
TEMP: Cellared @ approx 45 degrees

This pours up a murky, dark golden brown color. It forms a small head of light brown colored foam, which dissipates fairly quickly. It leaves a spotty surface covering film. The lacing is in medium-thickness strands, which are nicely sticky.

Loads of big malt notes are on full-attack. Light touch of roastiness. Big, bready, yeast notes. Light hints of dark fruits, packed in dark brown sugar. Light boozy presence.

The booziness is much more pronounced in the flavor. After that, the taste follows the nose quite well. There is an unexpected light trace of coffee notes. A nice touch of leather.

This is almost full-bodied and has a light level of carbonation. It is quite smooth and has a good touch of creaminess to it.

This is very tasty and easy to drink. It has a bit of booziness which will keep you from drinking it to excess. It is also a great example of the style, though a little bit 'boosted'.

I thought this was a better beer than the previous reviews gave credit for. Of course I was drinking it on a cold night sitting around the camp fire.
This is a strong, heavy beer, with plenty of alcohol kick. More malty flavor than bitter, but it has a nice balance. Has some spice and fruit flavors. Could easily be compared to a double bock. I did not see the color or the head. Carbonation was medium.
There was little or no after taste, which made this drinking experience a pleasant one.
You can not drink to many of these before inebriation.
I would buy this beer again, but have been unable to find it in the ST Louis area.

12 oz bottle with Julian date inkjetted on the neck.

Pours a clearish, iced-tea brown. A fine, tan head stickes it to the glass. Smell is molasses and caramel and toffee and other assorted good candy malt hues. A little bit of spice attempts to keep things in balance. First taste is hot and syrupy. A few unidentified flavors come to the front along with some fig. An alcoholic presence lingers for a while, and the feel is viscous and finishes bitter. Interesting complexity after-the-sip. Drinkability above average. This is an interesting brew, but borders just a bit too much on the medicinal side.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pilsner glass. The appearance is a slightly cloudy amber color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is alcohol and yeast. The taste is acidic and betrays the ABV.

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.

Tried years later, in 15, and it's more bearable, with notes of toffee dominating. Smoke is subdued.

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 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.

12 oz bottle poured into a pub glass. Very weak head, a 1/4 inch at the most, with no lacing. Very disappointing. I wasn't sure what to expect from this style, but do expect a decent head. It's part of the visual enjoyment of drinking a beer. Body has a caramel color, much more interesting than then head.

Smell is a big improvement over looks. There is a lot of sweet caramel aromas. A little burnt raisin bitterness. There is a mild alcohol burn in the background. Taste has more caramelized sugars and figs. The alcohol warmth comes off as burnt orange peel. It is strong but flavorful.

Mouthfeel has a medium body with a thin carbonation. There is a light creamy texture that goes down smooth. This is very easy to drink at 10% ABV.

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.

12 ounce bottle poured into lost abbey glass. No date on bottle.

Pours an amber color with absolutely no head after an aggressive pour. Some carbonated bubbles line the outside of the glass but quickly fade. Appearance resembles tea. Smells of sweet caramel, malts, some fruits including plums and fig, and a subtle but present hop presence. Taste has plenty of caramel but also has a sweetness from maple syrup. Mouthfeel is also somewhat syrupy. Quite a bit of alcohol is on the palate as well. Overall this is a decent brew. Truly unique and a new style for me. Taste is nice with the sweetness.
