330 ml bottle. Pours a very dark brown with full tan head. Aromas of cocoa powder, heavily roasted malt, raisins, and copper piping. Flavors of roasted malts, light chocolate, light cooked vegetables, and tobacco. Lighter body than I expected. A tad thin and metallic.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thinner slightly tan head on a very dark, reddish brown color that has some orange highlights around. Some light spiciness in the aroma, some light fruit, faint hint of citrus and some yeastiness. Tastes a bit sweeter than in the aroma, but lots of flavor does show up after quite a muted aroma. Nice wintery spice, touch of fig and toast. Nicely warming. Mediumish body with vibrant carbonation. Little syrupy, but in a nice way. Really comes through with the taste.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Colabrown beer with a weak and brown head. Aroma is interesting and complex, herbs, roastiness, anis and fruity sweetness. Taste is roasted, some herbal nuancees, enough of sweetness, "sweet and sour". interesting taste. Medium bodied, slippery and nice to drink. Interesting, herbal and spicy beer, still spicys are only spicys and not the whole beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma more like a porter, chocolate roast and stewed earthiness. Looks like a dark brown ale. Starchy malt flavor with some strange spicy after notes that linger like pepper after a meal. Not too thick either. I guess I’d call this a winter warmer, but not a stout.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear dark brown with a small brown head that dissipates quickly and leaves little lace. Aromas of a sour cocoa with some spice. Taste is sour dark chocolate with some raisin and hints of vanilla and cinnamon on the finish. This body of this beer is very light on the palate which is very surprising for a >7% beer.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Advent Calendar #2. Hm quite sour, like sucking on a few lemon seeds. Aroma has some chocolate in it, too. Lots of carb when hitting the mouth, maybe the sourness is making it seem more extreme. Hm there seems to be some dry overlay but overall the finish seems quite sweet&sour a la lemon juice. Worried about this being headache inducing. Different for its chocolate/lemon qualities. Not a "dark wit" (???) as I was expecting. Nice to try but I definitely would not like another. Hm.
