gyllenbock (7707) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 23, 2010
Bottle bought at De Molen in November 2010. (bottle number was 209) Black with a small tan head. Very nice aroma and taste of wood, roasted malt and some whisky. Also dark chocolate and licorice. Thick body with a pleasant mouth feel. An excellent beer, how nice that I bought two bottles. Perfect beer to enjoy slowly.

Nip bottle.. bottled on 5/13/10, #309. Poured medium-viscosity, deeper black with some swirls of dark beige sticking around. The aroma was decadent, with smoky whiskey and vanilla laced through rich chocolates.. brighter on the back of the nose, with oaky astringency and black pepper present.. some cocoa back there too. The flavor found sharp oak and whiskey notes throughout.. blended chocolates and vanilla plus lesser roasty black malts at the core.. finished with whiskey warmth and aftertaste.. surprisingly rough considering the smooth nose. Medium-ish bodied with low carbonation on the palate.. it tried to be smooth across the middle, but the aforementioned sharpness got in the way. Not bad, but not quite what I was hoping for.

bottle ( 18 cl ) 437/ 1440 , thanx to kermis ! brewed 16-12-2009 , bottled 13 - 05 -2010 . back then i didnt even drink craftbeer lol :p pours very dark, near black. good foam ( brown) that fades , but leaves a good layer . smell is quite heavy, roasted malts, bitter. soft, sharp carbo. waaw ! best porter i had for sure. why not call this a imperial stout ? a rather light mouthfeel, but still very nice. carbo is low, but sharp. just the way it should be ! bitter, roasted malts. coffee, redicolously drinkable? 12,5 ABV ? this drinks away like a lager. there’s some ’ hidden ’bitterness in this, also get bread notes ( grains?? ) very sweet. leaves a sticky backfeeling, and a very , vey low alcohol warmth . but its there . has notes of coffee as wel. very complex, much is going on in there, yet its so easy to drink.. again, another ’old’ de molen beer that is redicolously awsome. is it that they get so much better with age? or is has de molen realy got so much worse?

In short: A Barrel Aged Imperial that doesn’t overdo the barrel thing. Good
How: Bottle, tiny 180ml, consumed when 1 year 4 months after bottling date
The look: Black body topped by a small tan head
In long: Nose has light notes of barrels, medium roast, lots of sweet dark malts. Taste is blackened malts, thick maple syrup, some chocolate, some prunes, Nice well-integrated wood barrels. I don’t think it was possible to tell the barrels used were whiskey. It was obvious there was wood barrels involved, but there wasn’t much of a whisky flavor, in fact the barrel flavor was smooth enough that I don’t think I could have believed it was any type of barrel (Rum, Bourbon, maybe even Brandy). Alcohol is a bit apparent but not bothersome. It’s hard to say if this 12.5% beer is relatively easy to drink because the bottle is empty after just a few sips. Only sold in 180ml bottles, if it was a chocolate bar they would call it "fun size", a totally stupid name, a "fun size" chocolate bar should be the size of a toaster-oven.
