yngwie (16315) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 2, 2013
Bottle. A lightly reddish beer, dark brown to black in color, and with a dense, beige head on top. Coffee, roasted malts, some sweetness and some caramel in the arome. Medium to full body, soft on the palate, pleasant carbonation. Coffee, roasted malt and some dried fruits in the flavor, a touch of prunes. Lasting finish. A nice one, tasteful and pleasant. Well worth a revisit. 130202

Koelschtrinker (15762) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 21, 2011
Malzig-milder Antrunk, ab dem Mittelteil erfolgt eine proportionale Malzsteigerung hin zu ansprechend wüürzig-malzigem Nachgeschmack, der mit seiner angedeuteten Schokoladennote auch noch süffig ist. Eins der besten Baltikas. Test vom 12.8.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 9,9,9,12,11,10 - 9,95
