Gusher! Pours a very dark brown letting just a little light through, a large tan head that settles but lasts and leaves some bits of lace on the glass. Aroma is roasted malts, chocolate, caramel and some dark dried fruity esters. Flavour is roasted malts, bit sour/tart(lactic acid like), mild chocolate, ashtray and a bit watery.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, Dec 2 Beer Advent Calendar. Dark brown pour, with a light brown head that initially soars, but fades rather quickly to a thin ring without any lacing. Aroma is more sour than anything, but not harshly so, with some burnt malt hanging around the edge of awareness. Light dusty cocoa in here too. Some spice on the deep inhale. Didn’t know what to expect, but it wasn’t this-- more interesting than I anticipated. Palate maintains the sourish identity, with light flavours of raisins and leather, roast takes a back seat. Light is the operative adjective here-- for a beer that boasts an ABV exceeding 7%, the body is woefully thin, edging on watery. Lightly bitter finish.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled 33cl. Very interesting nose which has plenty of character: Reminiscent of orange, sangria, grapefruit, caramel and condensed milk. I definitely prefer the nose to the taste. Long complex finish where some caramel, licorice and butter shows up. Not entirely cohesive in my opinion.
