yngwie (15569) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 19, 2011
Bottle, courtesy of fonefan. It pours a slightly unclear, dark brown body with a reddish hue. A thin, dense layer of dark beige bubbles on top. Roasted, coffee aroma with a little touch of prunes and toffee. Slightly buttery, but not at an annoying level. Coffee, toffee and bitterness in the flavor, some bitterness towards the end. Medium body, dry. A decent beer indeed, but nothing superb. Drinks easily and tastes good, along with some chocolate it would be very nice I guess. 110319

TBone (14273) - Pori, FINLAND - DEC 1, 2013
Bottle 330ml
Dark opaque brown/dark ruby coor, small beige head. Coffeish, black malt aroma. Light-bodied. Toasted malty, tobacco-ash in the flavor. Quite weak and watery, not a suprise for 4.2% beer. No faults but not much use for this beer.
