0.5l bottle courtesy of and shared with ogivlado (thanks!)
Poured a dark brown-red colour with a medium sized beige head that went away slowly. Grainy nose, notes of caramel and raisins. The taste isn’t far off, being grainy, caramelly and sweetish... dark malts. Not all that hoppy...almost at all. Says it’s brewed with some herbs but there’s nothing that would reveal their presence except (in my mind) maybe for a vague, just kinda herbal chalkiness. It’s still a good dunkel or vienna, not too sweet.

yngwie (14010) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 27, 2008
Bottle. A nice, clear, brown beer with a slightly small, beige head. Caramel, some roasted notes, dried fruits and a vague note of cooked vegetables. Nice, slightly roasted flavor. Pleasant flavor of fresh fruits as well. The bitterness is quite subdued, and is mostly there in the finish. Medum fullness with a pleasant level of carbonation. A truly quaffable beer, combining roasted malt and fruityness in a nice way. (071215)

Maria (10176) - Thisted, DENMARK - JAN 1, 2008
Dark amber with a moderate head. The aroma is very malty and the flavour is sweetish and malty with light notes of caramel and licorice. The finish is dry and rather bitter. Initially it was so sweet that I almost poured it down the drain, but after a few mouthful it became better, and it actually have something to offer.
