Cask at the St. Vincent with TimE ... deep red brown ... thin tan head ... roast malt nose ... with lots of port ... soft toffee ... again lots of port ... unbalanced... but still quite drinkable.

yngwie (16423) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 9, 2010
Bottle. A clear, chestnut to dark brown beer with a small, beige head. Toffee, a hint of roasted malts, cocoa and butter cream, some dried fruits. Medium body, quite dry even though there’s some sweetness. Coffee-cocoa-butter cream, roasted malts and some raisins in the flavor. Roasted, buttery finish. Overall, not bad, but too buttery, not bad, but I can’t really imagine I’d want to finish a bottle. 101009
