Deep red, almost black, thin but lasting creamy beige head and gentle condition. Bitter chocolate, roast coffee beans and a little vanilla in the nose, initial fruity dryness in the mouth becomes more chocolate sweet then coffee bitter with time, finish is dry and fruity and a little unbalanced. rich8880 (42) - - APR 14, 2017
Bottled. Mild liquorice aroma. Black with hint of red appearance - creamy head. Pleasant taste - slight bitterness and mild liquorice sweetness but doesn’t have the depth I would have expected from something at 6%. Medium bodied. Drinkable but a bit disappointing.

Has almost a sweetness to the roasty malts, dark berry-like flavours. Good beer, there are no glaring issues with it at all. The flavours are mild, but all mesh well. 2016 advent calendar. DuffMan (10271) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 26, 2016
Bottle, beer advent calendar. Deep brown, clear, with mahogany highlights and a very low beige head. Carbonation is proper, but head retention very poor. Brown bread and raisins, dark caramel, medium bodied, low bitterness.
