Aroma: caramel like soy sauce
Strong alcohol smell in finish
Not good for a daily drink, but maybe fits to special winter evening...

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Visual: Pours muddy light brown with no head, very thin ringed micro retention, a few bubbles here and there.
Nose: sweet brown sugar malt, light roast (lvl-6)-pungency
Attack: silky-flat, thicker viscosity
Mid-palate: (lvl-7)-sweetness, (MAIN) brown sugar, caramel, medium roasted barley malt
Finish: alcohol tanginess, residual caramel, stealth hops, watery cola finish.
Summary: Decent thick malty flavour with hints of dark fruit, but the lack of carbonation and buttery mouthfeel killed it for me. Drinkable, though just an average experience.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rating #1412 25.12.2014 - 330mL swingtop #21 in the 2014 Craft BeerAdvent Calendar. Rich blackbrown pour with a creamy tan head that bubbles away quickly. Aroma is roast malts, hint of chocolate and weak coffee, mild nuttiness (almond). Mild carbonation, medium-heavy alcohol warmth, little yeasty whiff as well. Palate is more malt character, nutty, chocolatey, quite bitter. Lovely doppelbock, one of my favourites in this box.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Not too bad. Lots of molasses, rich toffee and nuts, mild yeast notes. A nice cold night brew with a moderate body, light carbonation and a rich, sweet malt.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
330 ml swingtop. Mostly clear deeper copper, tan foam competely fades. Boozy malty caramel toffee aroma and taste, nice enough flavour but way too flat. Medium bodied, low hopped. LBW (Lagerboys Be Wary)

Bottle, from the Craft Beer Advent Calendar, not sure which day. Medium amber, average off white head. Lightly toasty caramel, bready, light marzipan. Nice.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A hazy dark amber beer with a small amber head. The aroma is dusty combined with notes of caramel and light notes of alcohol and fruit. The flavor is sweet alcohol with strong notes of caramel as well as hints of metal, probably stemming from the alcohol.
