yngwie (13575) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 9, 2012
Bottle. A very dark brown beer, topped by a small, beige head. Nice piney, citrus peel-ish hoppyness in the aroma, with lots of coffee, roasted malts and some peat. The flavor is quite similar, with lots of hoppy flavors and a fine bitterness, and coffee, roasted malts and a touch of peat from the malts. Full-bodied, dryish and nicely carbonated mouthfeel, finishing with a nice bitterness and roasted malts. Certainly a nice one. 110916

Bottle shared by shigadeyo. Pours a murky dark brown color with some floaties and a small beige head. The aroma has dark fruits, chocolate, roasted malts and some moderate bourbon notes. The flavor has roasted malts, chocolate, raisins, oak, and moderate bourbon notes. These Danish imperial stouts are usually a bit strange and tougher to describe, but interesting nonetheless.
