bulldogops (2907) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 7, 2016
Rating #2266 - 2015.12.18 - Beer #18 in the 2015 Craft BeerAdvent Calendar. Beautiful amber brown with a creamy tan foam. Aromatics of confectioner’s sugar, fruitcake. Taste of honey, toffee, plum pudding. Lovely vintage ale.

fiulijn (21214) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 1, 2016
Bottle from the Craft Beer Advent Calendar
Dark brown color, medium sized head. The aroma is too mild, but it has a good body strength, good woody caramel flavor, with some depth, and light residual sweetness.
Good caramel beer.

RobBestwick (963) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 11, 2016
Bottle. Sweet blackcurrant and caramel aroma. Pours a dark cloudy brown colour with a medium sized yellow head. Caramel and dark fruits with a hint of nuts. Rich and full bodied with some warming alcohol. Pretty good.

DuffMan (10664) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 1, 2016
Bottle, from 2015 Craft Beer Advent calendar. Tawny amber, off white head. Fruity caramel aroma and flavour, fairly full bodied, pleasant and warming.

3.5
RhetoricalAns (973) - Red Deer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 27, 2015
Mahogany pour, medium light tan head. Nice rich malt aroma, sweet caramel, roasted grain, some spice. Lovely taste, more spice comes through, coriander. Medium to heavier body with a softer but present carbonation.

3.3
simonblaine (593) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 25, 2015
2015 beer advent calendar. Pours dark auburn. Aroma of malty floral bread grains. Taste is boozy sweet malty fruit. Bit too much carbonation.

3.2
ryanhunter_4 (334) - Strathmore, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 23, 2015
355 ml bottle poured at home. Day 18 of the craft beer advent calendar (got some catching up to do). Pours a muddy reddish brown with a nice looking beige head. Smells like molasses and caramel. Taste is strong caramel malt with a watery touch and a hint of spices (not sure which ones). While it is a good beer, nothing makes it stand out as exceptional. Drinkable though.

3.5
cmacklin (1305) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 20, 2015
341ml bottle from 2015 Craft Beer Advent Calendar. Pours a hazy, reddish brown with an average, long lasting, beige head that laces nicely. Sweet aroma of caramel malt, dark fruit and bread. Sweet flavour of dried, dark fruit, caramel malt and bread with a dry, bitter, warming booze finish. Medium body with an oily texture and average carbonation. Not bad.

bdleedahl (600) - , Saskatchewan, CANADA - DEC 20, 2015
2015 beer advent. The christmas spices are all nicely there in the right amounts. It is not full bodied as advertised, and slightly bitter and astringent, not a perfectly clean brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

3.5
RCx240 (203) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 20, 2015
Deep brown in colour, frothy tan head. Aroma of clove, nutmeg. Taste is earthy, some spice, faint blackberry notes. Finishes short, abruptly. Average body, carbonation. Pretty nice.
