Bottle in a hotel room in Vienna.
Clear orange-red coloured with a medium sized off-white head.
Sweet and fruity aroma of caramel and licorice.
Sweet and fruity flavour of caramel, bread and licorice.
Sweet finish. wlajwl (6749) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JUL 4, 2013
Aroma is toffee fruit and odd sweetness. The flavor is fruit/dark fruit, mild/medium sweetness, spices, mild nuttiness and a malty/mildly tart finish. simonblaine (576) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 31, 2013
Pours auburn/brown with minimal head. Aroma of chocolate and maple syrup and roasted nuts. Fairly tasty, almost like a port and a stout mix. Think desert beer. WheatKing (1338) - Phnom Penh, CAMBODIA - JAN 20, 2013
Advent Calendar #15. Still going through these... most are lagers, which I prefer in warmer weather. Anyway, for this one I feel like I had a completely different beer than anyone else because while the wood and earth nose were interesting, the taste was sour and the finish was just rancid, it was like they’d put a burnt piece of wood in there during the fermentation process. It wasn’t a bad bottle, just didn’t mesh so well with the inside of my mouth. But yes up there amongst the worst finishes I’ve experienced. Quack-Duck (9484) - Down South, GERMANY - DEC 31, 2012
bottle from bierpost. Amber-chestnut colour, mid-sized off-white head. Malty nose with caramel. Grainy malt flavours with caramel, chocolate and pumpkin seed. Not too sweet, not too dry, very well balanced.

Bottle, Beer Advent Calendar. Beautiful deep brick red colour with a lasting beige head; this beer looks fantastic.... But it all falls apart from here. Very sweet burnt caramel aroma with strong earthy and nutty traits. Grainy caramel flavour, overly sweet, with a very drying peanut-skin bitterness in the finish. Thin mouthfeel. Not good. pintbypint (3584) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 16, 2012
330ml brown bottle from Craft Beer Advent Calendar. Medium brown pour with deep orange highlights. Small tan head, light lacing. Nose has some roasted malt, earth, chocolate and toasty notes. Taste is earthy, toasty, dark chocolate, a bit of dark fruit. Dry finish, grains and earthy malt in the aftertaste, light bitterness. Getting a slightly vegetal undertone here thats not very pleasant. Good looking beer, but odd tasting.Tough to get through the whole bottle. RumRunner101 (918) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 15, 2012
Aroma of chocolate, maple, pumpkin is a little noticeable. Flavour has dark, bready malts with chocolate covered raspberries, roasted almond and a syrupy sweetness. Finish has notes of booze, sweetness and bitterness. CapFlu (5126) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 15, 2012
(0,33l bottle) 2012 Advent Calendar. Pours a large white off-white head atop a blackish-red colour. Nose is slightly tart and metallic. Rather flavourful but oddly without any body - ashtray, berry seeds and cherry. Interesting.

Dec 15 CBAC. Dark walnut with almost no head but still some light lacing. Rather strong herbal, rooty, chocoloate scent. Velvety body. Flavour has all the earthiness, roots, heather and light chocolate of the aroma. Nice body. Has the feeling of a desert beer.
