Bottle 750ml. @ The Danish Summer Gathering, TFODRBSG12, Ulfborg.

Dark dark black colour with a average to large, frothy to creamy, good lacing, mostly to fully lasting, light brown to brown head. Aroma is heavy malty, roasted, chocolate, spicy, wood - cedar, alcohol - whisky, moderate to heavy coffee. Flavour is heavy sweet and bitter with a long long duration, coconut, chocolate, dark chocolate, buzzy. Body is medium to full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. Incredibly intense and the flavour is extremely balanced. Only one word ... wonderfull ;-) [20120818]

yngwie (13120) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 18, 2012
Bottle, 75cl, at TFODRBSG 2012. A black one, topped by a finger-thick dark tan head. Some lacings. Oily pour. Lots of dark chocolate and wonderful coffee on the nose. Roasted malts, alcohol, a touch of prunes and raisins, as well as a pleasant but intense boozyness. A bit heavy on the booze, itís really warming on the palate, full-bodied, oily and smooth. Quite hop bitter, both initially and in the end. The flavor has loads of dark chocolate, mocha, some boozyness resembling chili, and a touch of dried fruits. Really, really lasting finish with dark chocolate, roasted notes and some coffee. And bitterness. Superb and wonderful. 120818
