yngwie (16504) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 3, 2010
Bottle, 22oz. It pours a beautiful black body under a finger thick dense, tan head. Spice nose with cloves. Roasted and coffee-ish. The flavor has a spiced touch, with roasted malts and some coffee. Pleasantly bitter in the end. Medium to full body. Overall, too spiced for my likings, but far from a bad beer. Very far. 091230
