yngwie (15382) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 31, 2013
Bottle. A lightly hazy one, dark chestnut colored and topped by a dense, light beige head leaving some lacings. The aroma is quite hoppy, with some roasted hints and coffee. It’s full-bodied and quite carbonated in the mouth, semi-dry and with flavors of pine cones, roasted malts and coffee. Lasting finish, dry and quite roasted. A nice one, but I’m not impressed. 131231
