yngwie (13108) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 18, 2012
Bottle, 75cl. There’s a few small floaties in this one, else it’s clear, with a dark amber body and a small but firm light beige head. The aroma has some toffee and a little bit of roasted malts, as well as both fresh and dried fruits. Mostly dried though. The flavor has a pleasant sweetness, with malts, roasted notes, dried fruits and some faint bitterness. Medium to full body, dry and pleasantly carbonated. There’s a more pronounced bitterness in the end, but still it can’t really be classified as bitter. Anyway, it’s a beer I wouldn’t mind drinking again, I like the way the flavors are integrated. 120218

mcberko (5941) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 30, 2011
750mL bottle, split with manuchampions, Matts_Property and uhlan, pours a dark reddish brown with a thick off-white head - lots of sediment. Aroma of spices, pepper, sort of rye bread, and some floral notes. Flavour is sort of like a dark malt saison with Belgian spices, chocolatey-ish malts, and subtle orange [peel]. Nice melange of spices, with light molasses and light toasted bread. Very enjoyable.
