Woodchuck Cellar Series Chocolate. Boy is this thing chocolaty. Very sweet with strong chocolate aroma and flavor, OK for short sessions.

Full Nelson Lights Out Ale. A nice dark but hoppy ale. Not the best on the advent calendar but certainly drinkable

101 West Bank Street, Petersburg, VA 23803
This little hidden gem in downtown Petersburg is well worth the trip to the ATM, which you will have to go to because they don't take plastic.
Inside the place is old school and small but the food makes all the trouble worth while. Alexander's is a Greek restaurant but they carry other non-greek dishes. I've been before and got the cheese stuffed chicken for dinner and it was absolutely awesome.
This last time I went it was for lunch and I got a bacon cheese burger which I had been told was very good. Not a thing had changed since I was there last, which was close to 5 years ago!
Our waitress was sweet and attentive and did an outstanding job. My burner was perfectly cooked and tasted great. Simple, but perfectly cooked and topped with some tzatziki it was one of the best burgers I've had for a while. Served with just chips and a pickle, the burger was around $8 but well worth it.
I was very impressed with Alexander's for both lunch and dinner and I highly recommend it. Next time I go I plan on getting the gyro which looked ridiculously delicious. But just remember, bring cash or a check.

Avery's Old Jubilation Ale..
This is a malty winter warmer in the best sense with a slight hoppy after taste. A good beer with strong and robust flavors.

Sam Adam's Merry Maker Gingerbread Stout... OK beer, not all that... Malty with a touch of hops. There are spices and a faint bit of gingerbread present but they are not very strong.

St. Bernardus Christmas Ale...
This might be the king of Christmas Beers. Strong and very complex with a great amount of malts and there flavor of dark fruits. Great winter warming beer.

Sweetwater Festive Ale... This is a nice malty ale with just a touch of holiday spices. Its a good beer but not as amazing as some beer blogs will lead you to believe. Don't get me wrong, it's very good but not amazing like it was hyped up as being.

Dubuisson Scaldis Noel.
Now this is a good beer, not really all that Christmasy though. It has the flavors of a much more heavy and darker beer, sweet and malty with the flavors of dark fruits. Although i really hate drinking foreign, it is actualy a very good beer.

Shock-Top's Shockolate Wheat...
Nothing too fancy to start the season of with, but I've never had it before. Taste very similar to watered down, carbonated chocolate milk. Shock-Top makes some decent beers, nothing great but decent. This beer is not even decent, it's actually pretty bad...
