yngwie (14146) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 8, 2014
Bottle. It’s a hazy dark amber to brown body and a small, dense light beige head. The aroma is cellarish and with dark fruits and dark sugars. Some paint thinner too. The flavor has dark dried fruits and dark sugars, with some paint thinner and alcohol. Rather thin on the palate, with a pleasant carbonation level. Some paint thinner in the finish too, but the dark sugars and dark dried fruits dominates. Nothing special going on here, not at all. 140808

Bottle 0,3 litre. This is not my kind of beer, aroma is quite good, tho too strong for my nose and so is the taste.
