yngwie (14146) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 18, 2012
Bottle, 22oz, at TFODRBSG 2012. 2010 vintage it seems, but the wax was more copper than gold, so maybe 2012? A black one, more or less, clear looking and topped by a dense, beige head. Dark chocolate, roasted malts, some coffee and a touch of vanilla. A little bit of vanilla on the palate, with roasted malts, something boozy, dark chocolate and a little bit of coffee. Full body, soft on the palate. Lasting chocolatey finish. I guess Mr Churchill could’ve had some fine hours with this one. 120818

brokensail (11612) - Orange County, California, USA - MAY 13, 2010
A: The pour is certainly a thing of beauty. A dense black beer with a fluffy mocha colored head on top. S: The nose is full of whiskey and vanilla with some nice notes of oak and chocolate. The whiskey really is a bit too strong for my liking, however. T: A bit sweet beer with plenty of oak and whiskey coming through despite the onslaught of chocolate, vanilla, and caramel flavors. Perhaps even a touch of molasses and some dark fruits as this one warms up. M: Unfortunately, the body seems a bit thin (though perhaps it is from all the other beers I tried before), though the carbonation is proper. D: A bit heavy on the booze character, but still a nice beer. I would imagine that this one will become a nice treat in a few months.
