Opaque black beer. Spicy fruit and medicinal nose. Semi dry palate. Dark malt with mild smoke. Fruit and spice in the undertone. The fruit is orange and red fruits. Finishes dry with a bitter hop aftertaste. Not bad for a Christmas Beer.

yngwie (15390) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 16, 2011
Bottle. A reddish dark brown beer, almost clear, and with a dense, fingerthick light tan head. Dried fruits, alcohol, roasted malts, chocolate and some hoppy notes on the nose. Roasted malts, chocolated, a faint touch of dried fruits and a little hoppyness, but not much bitterness. Super smooth, dry yet sweet and well carbonated. Overall, maybe a bit sweet, but indeed a nice beer. 110401
