look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

22 ounce bomber bottle - split 2 ways.
Pours a clear dark ruby red with finger of creamy off white head.
Aroma of caramel malt, piney floral hops with notes of citrus, candied orange peel.
Caramel malt hits the palate but quickly followed by green earthy hops, sticky resinous piney bitterness, grapefruit peel, slightly floral.
Medium full mouthfeel nicely carbonated - despite sticky bitterness drinks remarkably smooth. Decently boozy and warming - much enjoyed.

This was a very attractive beer-- deep amber, with a lacey tan head, one that stuck around after the initial pour.
The smell was caramel sweet but the taste was complex. It started out sweet and malty, then a sort of burned sugar flavor developed and it finished quite bitter.
The mouthfeel was nice, and overall it was a very interesting Red Ale. Much enjoyed.

A deep burgundy coloured ale that pours with a very frothy, thick head that dissipates slowly. The hops and malt really come through in the aroma and the taste. It has a very festive caramel flavour but is mostly dominated by the hops. Mouth feel is oily and finishes with that alcoholic burn. Overall this beer was ok. It would pair excellently with Christmas dinner and that's how I would recommend it be consumed.

Day 10 of the Craft Beer Advent Calendar.

L: Dark brown with a slight red hue to it, also has a weird looking whitey yellowish brown head to it, looks kinda weird but cool at the same time.

S: Hippy right off the nose and Farley powerful, also has an almost slight sweet smell to it.

T: first sip it kinda seems bland but when held in the mouth you get a powerful bitterness from the hops and a slight sweetness from the malts.

F: Medium bodied that has a little bit of carbination but not overpow r ring like some beers.

O: Actually a pretty good beer for the Craft Beer Advent Calendar even though this style isn't my favorite. Looking forward to the next ones!

Day something or other of my Craft Advent calendar. This is a lovely take on holiday beer. It has all the right elements - caramel malt, Cascade hops, and a nice roasty overall feel. The extra warmth at the tail end is particularly enjoyable and appreciated. Easily one of my favorites from this year's calendar.

Pours to give a deep red body with an off-white head that slowly subsides. The scent is mildly citrusy, I'd assume it's from cascade hops, along with a decent noble backbone and nicely roasted malts. The taste is bold in those citrus hops and accompanying bitterness, sending the palate for a real whirlwind. Definitely not something to pair with weaker foods, the taste is very overpowering. The feel is quite smooth and very enjoyable. Overall it's a decent beer.

355ml bottle, day 10 of the Craft Beer Advent Calendar - good to see another holiday-themed brew pop up, or rather out of this deal.

This beer pours a murky, dark red-tinted brown colour, with two fingers of puffy, finely foamy, and somewhat bubbly beige head, which leaves some wispy layered cloud lace around the glass as it slowly and lazily recedes.

It smells of rather sweet biscuity caramel/toffee malt, orange marmalade, lemon and key lime pie, some leafy, piney, and floral green hop bitters, and a menacing dose of hovering estery alcohol. The taste is bready, doughy caramel malt, grainy toffee candies, muddled yet fleshy citrus, oily bar-top nuts, and a testy, if highly perfumed leafy, piney, and herbal hoppiness.

The carbonation is fairly low-lying in its tame and lackadaisical frothiness, the body a solid medium weight, and mostly smooth, but for a wee metallic hop and boozy edginess. It finishes still pretty sweet - though the fruity and pine resin essences at least provide a modicum of balance.

Everything about this offering comes across as just short of straight-up good - maybe it's the less than thoroughly integrated 18-proof alcohol heat, I dunno. Anyways, this is a sweet, holiday confection-friendly, and warming tipple, worthy of sipping away at whilst watching that Ron Swanson Yule Log video, or the like.
