yngwie (15605) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 22, 2012
On tap at Cardinal. It pours a small, light beige head over a black body. At least very dark brown. It is lightly sourish on the nose, with figs, dark berries, notes of coffee and chocolate and something more on the mocha side. It’s soft on the palate, lightly tart, pleasantly carbonated and medium to full bodied. Dried fruits, roasted malts, bitter chocolate and some herbal notes in the flavour. After a while it’s certainly more on the spiced side than the herbal side. Lightly metallic on the end. A really pleasant one, well suited for a sour ale newbie. And for the seasoned veteran. 121022
