500ml can (Stockmann, Tallinn)
Very treacly aroma, caramelly and burnt. Very dark, small tight beige head. Slightly milky retronasals, caramelly and treacly. Smoothish sweet palate, crisp tingly carbonation. Sweet dark roast, quite toasty. Finish fairly burnt, and with a nice, but gentle, bitter tingle. Mostly easily drinkable, apart from it being perhaps a bit too sweet, I think this would be sickly if it got warm.

Can (Brewed in Rakovnik). Dark brown body, medium to small beige head. Aroma has sweet roasted malts and molasses. Sweet roasty taste with light hops in the mix. Sweet, a bit ashy and smoky finish. Good, but it would be better with more pronounced hops.

yngwie (13106) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 17, 2012
Bottle. A clear, brown beer with a small, beige head. Toffee, almost butterscotch, on the nose, with nuts, raisins and some roasted hints. Toffee, raisins, nuts and a little bitterness in the flavor. Almost coffee grit like roastyness too. Medium body, semi-dry, and with a pleasant carbonation. Roasted, toffee-ish finish. A pleasant one indeed, quite tasteful, certainly a one I could repeat. 120817
