Dark amber to brown color. Aroma of malt with chocolate traces. The body is weaker than somehow expected, there is a good flavor of malt and soft chocolate, caramel, and decent bitterness; all over there is a timid fruity trait. Pleasant.

yngwie (13693) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 20, 2011
Bottle, 150cl, corked. 2008 vintage. It’s a murky brown beer with a dense, but small, beige head. Chocolatey aroma with a nice hoppyness. Some alcohol too. The flavor has a nice blend of chocolatey maltyness and hoppy bitterness, with some grapefruit hints and alcohol. Warming and full-bodied. A quite nice one, but a bit chocolatey and malty. Wouldn’t mind having it again though. 110820

Cloudy brown with a small white head. Aroma of chocolate, dried fruit and yeast. Sweet and full bodied fruity and malty flavour with a hint of chocolate and more than enough yeast flavour.
