Beer Advent Calendar - Day 1

Forget a chocolate advent calendar, I'm having a beer one!

25 days. 25 beers that I've been meaning to get down my thoughts about... Should be fun!

Day one begins with Weyerbacher Old Heathen Imperial Stout - 8%

One of the less intense Imperial Stouts from the USA with aromas hazelnut, cocoa, dark chocolate covered raisins, a whiff of vanilla and a little earthy quality. It's not as thick in the mouth feel as the intensely black pour would suggest.. This is no slouch when it comes to packing in the flavour though - it's a roasted beast of a beer! Burnt oak bark, singed malt ears with toffee and caramel after tones. It's rather sweet in the finish making it very drinkable, and very pleasant too!

Great way to start the list if I do say so..


  1. Great idea, but I hope you don't do yourself a mischief - you're already getting "singed malt ears" and it's only day one. (I recommend Germolene.)

    1. 1 beer a day? I see it as a way to curb my drinking habits... ;)
