yngwie (13844) - 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.
