Some clove spiciness amongst the caramel malt aroma. Flavour is generally quite sweet but it lacks a full body. The taste is incomplete although not unpleasant.

yngwie (13693) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 31, 2013
Bottle. A gusher producing a finger-thick dense beige head over an almost clear brown to amber body. Some spiced hints in the aroma, with caramel, prunes and some yeast. Strange, but pretty decent. The same can be said about the flavor, it’s more or less the same. Not much sweetness, a pleasant bitterness showing up towards the end. Full-bodied and with a nice carbonation level. Decent, nothing more. 131231

Pours clear dark brown with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, yeast, hint of chocolate, alcohol and spices. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter with a long warm and caramel finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

33 cl. bottle sampled @ Kerstbierfestival Essen 2013. Dark brown with an off-white head. Nose is huge liquorish, brown sugar, caramel, toffee, cloying sweet herbs. Taste is thick toffee, caramel, mostly sugary just, sticky malts, simple, not lactic / acidic notes a noted by previous reviews. Thicker body, warming, not exceptional but nice enough.
