Bottled. A dark brown beer with a thin brown head. The aroma has strong notes of roasted malt, also lending it a bit of acidity. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt and roasted bread. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.

Hand pump at Salone della Birra Artigianale e di Qualità 2008, Milan

Black color; big frothy head. Some roasted malt aroma, paper. It has a well balanced flavor of caramel and chocolate and light roasted malt; fresh and refreshing. More balanced than the barrel version.

Cask gravity at Salone della Birra Artigianale e di Qualità 2008, Milan
It has been aged 2 weeks in a chestnut wooden barrel

Cloudy dark brown color, no head. Some aroma, of glue, a bit alcoholic. Being without carbonation it can release a good chocolate flavor; there is some yeast too; but at the end it has some astringency.

yngwie (15759) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 14, 2009
Cask at Copenhagen Beerfestival. It’s a flat, dark brown beer almost without head. Burnt and roasted nose with dried fruits. Roasted and burnt flavor too, quite coffee-ish, with some notes of dms. Flat, medium full, dry mouthfeel. The finish is bitter of the roasted kind. I might not sound very enthusiastic about this one, but it was actually quite nice. (090517)
