Poured 750 ml into a brandy glass. Dark brown with reddish tint and a thin yet persistent head. Earthy hopped nose, and a dry palate with nice carbonation that hits quickly at the top of the tongue. The taste is difficult to describe, but woody notes prevail with a roasted quality that rounds out the flavor. Very unique and enjoyable beer.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 11/20
BeerAdvent 2013 Day Seven. Pours dark brown without much head. Nose is pepper, dark fruit. Flavour is dark fruit, spicy malt, treacle, chalk, wood, finish is woody chalky and salty. The finish makes this kind of hard to drink, tastes like an English brewer made a dubbel then sold it on cask. Interesting but not particularly enjoyable.

Advent Calendar. I was a bit let down by this one - maybe it was the fish for dinner? Looks and smells great, but the taste was a bit overly musty and sour for my liking. Would try again with a clean palate.

A roast sweet smell with hints of caramel, this poured nice an dark with a good head that laced well and did not dissipate quickly. A nice fizz up front that did not overwhelm, I could taste the roast and the sweetness. A wonderfully balanced beer that had a pleasant lingering aftertaste.

Craft beer advent calendar day 7! Pours a very dark brown that appears some what clear letting some light through and a small off white head. Aroma is spicy cloves, dark dried fruits, and dark candied syrup. Flavour is spicy Belgian phenols, cloves, sweet dark sugars, mild bitterness, roasted malts, dark dried fruits, and faint alcohol.

Craft advent calendar day seven. Pours really nice with a minimal head, beautiful hues. Smells like my old gym socks, which is strange because it was really a decent beer. The higher alcohol content didn’t add much though.

CBAC day 7! Pours a clear dark brown with a red hue. Aroma of Belgian yeast, cloves, fruity, spicy pepper and some caramelized sugar. Taste of cloves, spicy Belgian yeast, pepper, dark dried fruits and burnt sugar on the finish that leaves a nice spicy bitterness.

Brown with a short head. Aroma is Belgian yeast, chocolate, roasty malt, spice and a little funkiness. Pretty interesting taste, like a Belgian brown, some fruitiness, light chocolate, candy sugar and slight tartness. Good stuff.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a copper brown with a finger of head that dissipates to a thin ring through the remainder of the beer. Smell is of apples, peppery spiciness, floral, and clove bouquet, as well as burnt caramel in the background. Flavour tastes of caramel with subtle chocolates combined with the sour tartness typical of Belgian ales. Peppery spiciness remains with a bit of earthiness. Very smooth, and easy drinking for 7%. I love this beer!

Advent has caught up. Day 7. Looks like a brown ale with nice foam. Aroma is definitely Belgian, sour with strong dark malt scent. Nice smooth chocolatey malt flavour. Sour mash edge. Smooth and tasty.
