yngwie (15566) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 23, 2008
Bottle, 75cl corked. An amber to copper colored beer with a medium-sized off-white head. Malty, caramel aroma, slightly cellarish, and with some toffee. The cellar note is present in the flavor too, but that’s probably due to the bottle being 28 months past BB-date, and it just added a nice touch to the beer. There’s also caramel sweetness, toffee, some butterscotch and a little fruit in the flavor. Medium mouthfeel. I don’t think the cellaring of this beer hurt much, it’s still quite tasteful after more than two years past BB-date. (080411)

Theis (14480) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 31, 2006
Bottle 50cl. Red/brown. Malty, sweet, berries, dry... you know the story. But i also tasted: Earthy, mould, like the aroma of a wet gym-towel, after two weeks in a plastic bag...
