yngwie (16483) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 29, 2012
Bottle, 22oz, at RBNAG-11. An unclear, brown beer topped by a small, light beige head. Ham-like notes in the aroma, roasted, and with some caramel and dried fruits. Some bitterness towards the end of the flavor, with ham, roasted notes, caramel and dried fruits. Full body. A bit too much on the ham-side this one, sort of unusual, and also quite nice. 111015

brokensail (15774) - Dublin, California, USA - FEB 2, 2011
A: The pour is pretty much black with a very small mocha colored head. S: The roasted malts are really the first thing to hit me, but the smoke is not too far behind. There seems to be a bit of a lactose or vanilla thing going on, too. Some nice chocolate aroma is also present. T: Lots and lots of roasted malts here. A good chocolate and coffee flavor along with just a bit of bitterness. The smoke is quite pronounced as you might expect. M: The body is medium with quite a low level of carbonation. D: Despite being pretty smokey, I actually thought this was good and had enough other flavors going on.
