Old amautør rating: Hazy dark brown color with small off-white head. Malty and sweet aroma: Taste is roasted and sweet. yngwie (17053) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 17, 2009
Bottle, 75cl corked. It pours a clear, ruby body under a small, beige head. Roasted nose with some fruits, dried mostly, and a bready aroma. Sweet and roasted flavor with some caramel and a hint of dms. Full-bodied and smooth in the mouth. Lasting, roasted finish with hints of chocolate. A quite nice bock, although maybe a bit boring.
