yngwie (15759) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 7, 2015
On tap at the taproom. Almost clear in the glass, dark amber in color and with a small, dense, beige head. Nutty, earthy, roasted aroma with a nice fruityness and a piney touch. Coffee hints. The flavor has a nice bitterness, it’s dry and medium to full bodied and a nice carbonation level. Roasted malts, bread, nuts and coffee hints. All lasting for a good while. Pretty wonderful this one, would go well with burger, cheese, pizza and lots of other good food. 150607
