yngwie (16715) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 4, 2013
Bottle. A big, dense, off-white head forms over a clear, dark amber body. Lightly brett-ish aroma with some boozy hints, dried fruits, berries and a toffee hint. Really wonderful. There’s some warmth on the palate, it’s full-bodied and pleasantly carbonated, with flavors of toffee, booze, dried fruits, berries and a generic fruityness. Some apricot notes. Lasting finish with a lovely touch of the booze. Some vanilla pulls down the score a bit, I don’t care too much for that in mye beers, especially in the paler beers. Anyway, it’s a really nice brew. 130504
