Almost opaque dark brown beer with a small tan head. Palate is slightly viscous and with good fine carbonation. Sweetish malts with a little cream. Sweet bubblegum. Fruity spices and mild smoke. Finishes smooth and sweet. Weird! Like taking a bit of a candy floss covered kebab!! Not unpleasant but I could nit drink loads.

yngwie (14146) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 28, 2013
Bottle, 22oz. It’s a dark brown beer, unclear, and topped by a small, light beige head. Quite spiced aroma wtih roasted malts and some chocolate. The flavor has a little spiced and bitter touch, with dark sugar sweetness, caramel, some dried fruits, a little peppery touch and a good dash of chocolate. Full body, soft carbonation. Long roasted, spiced finish with some dried fruits and a little bitterness. A bit messy perhaps this one, but nice anyway. 130028

jstraw (1938) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 25, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 26, 2013 Draft at Jerry’s. Black with light, frothy, tan head, little lacing / Bright, sweet, smokey nose of, basically, the items in the description / Medium to full body, sweet but not cloying, well balanced although by no means hoppy, with hot spice bite / Again, the flavors are well set out in the description, with a heavy, hot, baking spice punch / Interesting and well done, although not something I would choose to drink. More like a digestif liqueur.
