fkoolen (981) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - DEC 30, 2015
Bottle at home, bottled 15/02/14. Light chestnut brown colour, beige foamy head. Nose is a bit off. Roasted malty milky coffee, resinous/orange zesty hoppy, vanilla, boozy, bitter finish; from the 4 barrels used, I get the tequila most. Medium body, low carbonation. Not too balanced, maybe aging the bottle a bit more didn?t do it well.

Koelschtrinker (17271) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - DEC 6, 2015
Trockener, alkoholisch holziger Antrunk. Etwas bitter, leicht herb, erstaunlich wenig malzig. Auch die vorhandene Getreidigkeit ist geringer als gedacht, mittelstarke Würzigkeit. Okay. 9/9/9/9/13/9

yngwie (16503) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 8, 2015
Bottle. A hazy, dark amber colored beer with a dense, beige head of very moderate size. It’s malty on the nose, with caramel and toffee, and a nice piney, resiny hoppyness. Alcohol, some dried fruits. The flavor is a bit dry I think, with bitterness, caramel sauce, resins and booze. Full body with some warmth and a nice carbonation. Long, piney, bitter finish with maltyness in the back. Quite decent this one, but far from a rave. 150808
