Koelschtrinker (18730) - Kln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 17, 2011
Fr ein Stout ist der Antrunk eher mild, eine angenehme herb-slich Wrzigkeit mit tiefgehender Malzigkeit stellt sich erst etwas spter ein. Dieses Arome erreicht schnell seinen Intensittshhepunkt und verharrt dort einige Zeit. Etwas bananig s werdend, tief malzig, dieses Arome wird mit der Zeit deutlich milder. Im Abgang leicht und angenehm schokoladig, wenig herb, das Malz wird wieder intensiver. Gelungenes Stout mit gengend Tiefgang und Ausgeglichenheit. 10/11/11/12/12/11

yngwie (16760) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 10, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 27, 2011 Bottled. Almost black, with a tan head. Weak aroma with coffee, burnt malt, hints of licorice and chocolate. A mellow flavor with chocolate, coffee and roasted notes. Full-bodied, with a dryish, bitter finish. This must definately be one of the best Asian beers available. Rating: 8-5-8-4-15-4. 060801

Bottle. A beautiful looking beer, more or less black in color and with a finger-thick, dense, light tan head. Roasted, licorice aroma with a touch of alcohol. Quite fruity too. The flavor too is really nice, sweet, with roasted malts, some dried fruits, a touch of warming alcohol and a hint of licorice. Full-bodied and smooth, really tasteful. A beer I love to repeat. 110827
