Bottled (BB 04/2005)yngwie (17053) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 1, 2006
Almost opaque dark ruby, creamy expresso head. Aroma has roast, cold coffee and hints of hops. Medium to full bodied, lots of roast with hints of sugar. Bitter finish. There is just something plastic in the palate which prevents this to being an excellent.
Bottled. Clear, deep reddish-brown with a beige head. Fruits, hops, pine-notes, chocolate, licorice and some roasted notes in the aroma. The flavor is roasted, with coffee, hops and fruityness. Medium body and a coffee-bitter finish. Quite dryish in the mouth. (061013) MiP (15667) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUN 18, 2005
Bottle. Hoppy, very dusty aroma. Also fruity, roasted malts. Almost black colour with a red hue. Small unstable, light brown head. Very malty and quite roasted flavour, but still mild. Aftertaste has some roasted barley bitterness. Quite nice, semi-smooth mouthfeel.

500ml bottle sampled at Finn’s. Ruby-black body. Missing head. Malty aroma mixed with a citrus touch. Mellow fruity flavour offset by firm liquorice and caramel notes. Roasted bitter ending. Moderate carbonated. Well balanced (23.02.2007).
