yngwie (13563) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 15, 2014
Bottle, 22oz. It’s a dark reddish brown beer topped by a dense, finger-thick beige head leaving lacings. The aroma has toffee, some chocolate and roasted malts and a faint note of corn. Dark bread as well. The flavor has the same chocolate and toffee, with roasted malts, dark rye bred and some faint notes of corn. Semi-sweet on the palate, with a nice carbonation level. Roasted finish with chocolate and some salty hints. Not very true to style this one, but nice and tasteful anyway. Complex in a subtle way. 140315
