yngwie (16882) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 31, 2009
Bottle. It pours a clear, copper-colored body under a small, creamy, beige head. Looking quite good actually. Decent aroma with caramel tending towards butterscotch, sweetness, fruits and noble hops. Sweet, full-bodied mouthfeel with caramel, and some hops giving a decent bitterness. Some bitterness in the finish too, but it wouldn’t hurt from a little more of it. A decent beer, but I could easily do without the butterscotch. (090508)

50cl bottle. Pours brown with a small white head. Caramel, toffee & bread. Slightly roasty. Medium bodied. Quaffable!

FatPhil (15571) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 1, 2012
500ml bottle - shared by Marduk - thanks. Was 3 months past BB.
Nice soft roast, some chocolatiness to it. Fruity apple/orange retronasals. Very simple soft roast in the taste too.Finish has very dark burnt malt bitterness, with slightly metallic hints. Full and smooth palate, just gently sweet to keep it smooth, but not sugary at all. Carbonation is pleasant. Super easily drinkable dunkel, just what I like in a dark beer - would session this. Not showing signs of age at all, if anything the dryness might be aided by the age, and a positive thing.
