yngwie (14773) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 20, 2014
Bottle, 33cl. A dark , dark brown beer, unclear, and topped by a small, dark beige head. Roasted, lightly bonfire-ish aroma with some iodine and a good dash of peat. Chololate and booze, coffee grit, charcoal and licorice. It’s full-bodied and quite warming, still feeling a bit watery. Roasted, burnt and peated flavor with some raisin notes, licorice and bonfire. Peated, roasted finish with some raisins. Too much peat and charcoal going on, I prefer the original even though this one’s good too. 140420

ShivanDragon (2015) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - MAR 9, 2014
zwart bier met minimale bruine kraag aroma komt al snel binnen als een enorme turf/veen/teer lucht. De alcohol is ook zeer duidelijk aanwezig. is ook te vergelijken met de lucht van een bruine rol tape die je gebruikt om verband af te hechten. maar over het algemeen is het té overheersend. smaken zijn matig zoet, licht bitter, zeer sterke smaken van ... jawel een mega turf/veen, hout en leder. wel vol van body, romig en glad in de mond, maar ik vind deze versie niet zo bijzonder. het basisbier wordt door deze variant volledig naar de achtergrond verdreven door de enorme turf/veen smaken. de whisky, chocolade zijn in de achtergrond wel aanwezig evenals de geroosterde- en gebrande mouten. heeft ook wel iets weg van een natte sigaar :( complexiteit valt tegen.
