Tap @ EBF, 2008, Carlsberg.
Pours absolutely black with a small, creamy, beige head. Aroma is sweet, light coffee, nuttiness and low roastiness. Low carbonation, great creamy feel. Flavour is impressively nutty, a bit sweet and light coffee. Very balancet, soft and good.

yespr (33187) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - SEP 14, 2008
From tap. Pours dark brown to black with a lacing tan head. Aroma is dense liqourice and roastedmalt aroma with a mild acidic touch. Sweet initial flavoured with distinct berry fruity base flavour slowly showing some acidity and annis seed. Lingering liqourice and mild herbal touch into the far finish. Nice one.

yngwie (14442) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 30, 2008
On tap at Bishops Arms Järntorget, Gothenburg. A clear-looking black beer with a small, dark tan head leaving some pretty lacings. Sugary nose with licorice and some alcohol, as well as burnt malt and some dried fruits. Sugary sweet flavor with some smoke and licorice, burnt malt and dried fruits. Touch of alcohol too. Oily mouthfeel, yet it feels a bit thin. Lasting, sweet finish with burnt malt, coffee and some licorice. Sure a nice porter, but a bit on the sweet side I think, and it lacks a bit on the body.
