First came a toasted smug called Yin followed by a hoppy fella called Yang. Let me introduce you to Auld Yin – a wrinkly more experienced take on youngster Yin. 9 months in the company of an insightful, complex whiskey cask made a pretty interesting spin on this imperial tajii taste adventure. Aye!

yngwie (14703) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 4, 2013
Bottle. It pours a dark brown to black body and a minimal sized light tan head. Roasted malts, coffee, molasses, alcohol, booze and a touch of chocolate and dark dried fruits. Quite complex flavor with the booze playing a leading role. Lots of molasses, coffee and chocolate blending in. Warming and full-bodied, with very soft carbonation. Lasting finish with lots of flavor. A damn pleasant and tasteful beer, well suited for sharing with a good friend. 130504
