yngwie (13127) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 14, 2011
Bottle, 22oz. An unclear, dark amber beer with a finger-thick, off-white to beige head. Caramel and sugary dried fruits on the nose, maybe not sounding too good, which it is, but it is a bit boring. The flavor has a meaty intro, with caramel, raisins and some alcohol following. Warming and full-bodied on the palate, with a lasting dried fruits finish. A quite nice one, and though it might seem from my rating that I enjoyed aroma and flavor equally, I didn’t. The aroma is sort of boring or one dimensional, the flavor is more complex and in fact really good. Anyway, a nice beer. 110204
