yngwie (14347) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 11, 2014
Bottle. 2008 vintage. An almost flat one, dark amber to brown in color and with a small off-white head on top. More a rim of bubbles actually. The aroma has vanilla, oxidation, roasted malts, caramel, some meat and alcohol. It’s full-bodied and smooth on the palate, warming, with a meaty flavor. Roasted malts, caramel and resins. Some dried fruits too. It’s quite bitter, which lasts for a good while. A quite nice one, bearing the age quite well, but it’s a bit alcoholic. 141011
