yngwie (12612) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 19, 2012
Bottle, 22oz. A semi-clear, dark brown beer topped by a small, beige head. Raisins, spices, gløgg-spices that is, dark malts, caramel hints, generic dried fruits, some woody notes and a touch of caramel sauce. A vinous touch too. The flavor is mostly spiced, in a really nice way, still it’s quite balanced, with enough maltyness to deal with the spices. Caramel sauce and some hints of dried fruits. A really pleasant spiced beer, seems like Hoppin Frog knows how to use the spices. 121219
