At Copenhagen Beerfestival, on May 8, 2010
Black color with red streaks, brown to yellow color, light brown head. Dry, smoke, chocolate scent, tad bit acidic. Oaky, vanilla, fudge ice-cream, caramel, dry taste. Caramel aftertaste. Medium to fizzy mouthfeel.

50 cl bottle from EuroSpar Læsøgade Frederikshavn. Marked 7.5% ABV. BB date could possibly be 4.11.13? Was on sale for 30 DKR. Bought fairly recently. Sampled on December 29, 2013.
Black color, light brown medium sized head. Sweet, caramel, nutty, chocolate scent. Also a bit to the vinous or evident alcohol side, mixed with berries and some spice. Cocoa, red currants (slight bit), chocolate, grainy taste. Grainy, light bitter, cocoa aftertaste. Hints of some darker ripe fruits too. Warming alcohol. Sort of to the thin side mouthfeel, medium low bitterness. Decently aged, though perhaps should’ve been a tad fresher. Happy I picked up the bottle. Nice for the dark and cold season.
Scent is close to an 8 but mouthfeel is close to a 2, so leaving original scores.

yngwie (14703) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 25, 2010
On tap at Esbjerg Beerfestival. It pours a next to black body, only a reddish hue lightens it up. A tan head leaves curtains in the glass. Some bourbon-like (or some other booze) notes on the nose, heavily roasted and with good coffee aroma. The flavor has some coconut and vanilla, but only in the background. Sweet, heavily roasted with coffee. Full-bodied, smooth and warming in the mouth. Roasted, bourbon-ish finish. Quite lovely, maybe a bit one-dimensional, and not my idea of a Christmas beer, but I enjoyed it very much. 091023

It’s pitch black with a creamy head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, coffeee, vanilla and little different Christmas spice, but not in a dominating way. The flavor is moderately sweet with notes of roasted malt, coffee, vanilla, the cinnamon is almost not there, but it’s dryness gives it away. I also find other Christmans spices, and I think this is a “Christmassy” beer in the right way, harmonic and nice without a the entire self of spices dropped into the brew.
