yngwie (13555) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 11, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 1, 2010 Bottled at Horsens Beerfestival. Hazy brown with a small beige head. Earth, mould, caramel and dried fruits in the aroma. The flavor is mouldy and sweet. Medium to full body. A nice one. Rating: 7-3-7-3-14-3.4. 061028

Bottle. It’s a clear, brown beer topped by a dense, beige head. Brown sugar, some tea and roasted malts on the nose. The flavor is of the sweet kind, with roasted malts, brown sugar and some tea. Medium to full body, quite sweet. A decent beer indeed, but nothing extraordinary. Sort of mixes with the crowd. 091127

Draught at "Den Tatoverede Enke". Very dark, almost black - light brown head. High malty, coffee, red berries, light sweetness, nice body, dark bread, nice hopped. A bit like fresh baked dark raisin-bread and a cop of coffee.

Oakes (12551) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 22, 2006
Very dark brown colour. Light roasty, chocolatey character. Light body for size. A bit of soy sauce note to the fairly intense malt profile. No particular roast. Decent. A revisit is in order, though.

TBone (12547) - Pori, FINLAND - AUG 1, 2009
Bottled 75 cl (Bs, ABV. 8.2%). Dark brown, almost opaque, nice creamy beige head, lace. Aroma of molasses, vanilla, coffee and oak. almost like a whisky barrel-aged beer ... oak chips added? Quite light and mild palate for over 8% beer. Flavor has coffee, sweet molasses, toasted malts. Simple flavor which is a bit similar to some foreign extra stouts.

On draught. Deep ruby with scant brown head. Aroma of chocolate-flavored coffee. Taste of roasted malt and almonds, toffee late. Roasted chestnut finish, quite long-lasting. Good one, should age quite well.
