yngwie (14628) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 1, 2014
Bottle. It’s a clear, dark amber colored beer topped by a finger-thick off-white head. It’s pretty toffee-ish and bready on the nose, with some caramel and grass notes. Pine cones. It’s full to medium bodied and quite dry, with dried fruits and toffee in the flavor. Lasting roasted finish with toffee. Well, it’s actually quite nice this one, but I find it too dry and one dimensional. 140301

Crosse Keys, Bank 5 Nov 12. JDW festivaløl. Dyp brun. Lavt luftig skum. Antydning til plommer i aromaen. Smaken er syrlig frukt. Stikkelsbær. Holder seg syrlig lenge med en litt tung bitter ettersmak.
