harrisoni (16047) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2015
Bottles at Kent BF 2015. Didn’t realise this was a different rating and happily drank 2 bottles of it. Black beer lasting tan head. Coffee aroma, espresso coffee, smooth and velvety in the mouth, intense dark choc and coffee on the finish. So good I had it twice.

yngwie (16045) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 27, 2014
Bottle. An unclear, dark brown beer topped by a rim of dark beige bubbles. The aroma is very burnt and mocha-ish. Concrete dust. Pea soup. In a nice way. Too extreme though. And that goes for the flavor too, but it’s less dusty. Some sourish notes and alcohol. Medium body, slightly warming. Very low on carbonation. Lasting finish. Sort of nice, but too burnt and dusty for me. One small glass was fine, couldn’t do more though. 140927
