yngwie (14146) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 9, 2013
Bottle, 22oz. A dark brown beer with a dense, finger-thick light tan head. The aroma has coffee, chocolate and some bonfire, all weak. Soft on the palate, quite dry, with a nice carbonation level. The flavor too is weak, with roasted malts, some coffee and chocolate, and a faint meaty touch. Long, roasted and chocolatey finish with a little hint of meatyness. Not impressive this one, but quite drinkable. 130809
