yngwie (16503) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 23, 2008
Bottle, thx to thewolf. Pours a hazy, orange-brown with lots of floaties of all sizes, from the tinyest small to big chunks. Beige head leaving nice lacings. Malty-sweet flavor with fruityness and some pale malt. Fruity, caramel flavor with some hoppy bitterness and a little spiced touch. Quite dry. Fruity and slightly caramel-sweet finish. Decent beer, but far from impressing. (080301)

(on bottle, thanks thewolf) Sunflower and canesugar in the aromas. Waterish and thin body; but the finish gets all vanilla and sweet tobacco + peat andnutmeg; nice catch.

oh6gdx (25327) - Vasa, FINLAND - FEB 3, 2008
Bottled (by Duwac, BBE 09/04...), bought from BelgianShop.com in Jan 2008. Hazy brown colour with big beige fluffy head. Leaves some lace. Aroma is yeast, raisins, some toffee and some notes of mild oxidation (probably due to being this old). Flavour is caramel malts, toffee, yeast and some mild dark dry fruits. No notes of oxidation in the flavour. Dry palate.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JAN 29, 2006
Hazy light brown with a modest but well sustained fizzy tan head, this ale has an aroma of toffee malt, brown sugar, yeast, and a healthy dose of aniseed. Soft and well carbonated in the mouth. The flavor is a sweet caramel/toffee with a hint of chocolate, yeast, licorice, pepper, and other spices. It finishes on an oddly sweet yet dry note, then leaves a touch of bitterness in the mouth. Nice.

Dark coppery color, medium yellow head. Chocolate, sweetness, mild alcohol and licorice in aroma. Medium bodied. Chocolate, toffee and mild coffee in flavor, also mild spices. Aftertaste lasts with mild alcohol and spices. Nice complex brew.
