MiP (13513) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - APR 10, 2009
Bottle, 8%. Weak vinous aroma, hint of yeast. Almost clear brown colour. Small stable tan head. The flavour starts off vinous, turning roasted. I would have liked it a little sweeter, but good and well-balanced.

yngwie (13160) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 11, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 17, 2011 Bottled. Copper-colored, hazy beer with a creamy, off-white head. Raspberries, caramel, fruits and cellar in the aroma. The flavor is fruity as well, with cellar-notes and some caramel. The body could be fuller, but it is a nice beer. Rating: 7-4-7-3-14-3.5. 060801

Bottle, at De Grotte Witte Arend. A hazy one, brown in color and with a decent beige head. Slightly milky nose, with dried fruits and some caramel. Sourish and milky flavor, lots of prune jam, some dark plums. Full body, decent carbonation. Seems off, still drinkable, but letting my old rating count. This rating: 5-3-5-3-11-2.7. 110429
