yngwie (13345) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 23, 2012
Bottle, 75cl. A reddish dark brown beer with a finger-thick dense, light beige head. Roasted, lightly boozy nose with dark chocolate and some coffee. Some vanilla hints. Super soft and full-bodied, a bit warming, but not in an unpleasant way. Roasted malts, chocolate, some vanilla and booze, and a little bit of bitterness in the flavor. Lasting finish. A pleasant one, that’s for sure. 120623
