yngwie (13693) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 6, 2011
Bottle, 22oz. It pours an oily, ruby-ish black body and a small, off-white to tan head. Meaty, chocolatey aroma with coffee and some licorice. The flavor is much the same, meaty maltyness, chocolate and some coffee. Full-bodied and oily on the palate. A nice beer indeed, but too meaty for my likings. Better fresh maybe? 100917
