Bottle shared by Ivar, Thanks. Pours dark brown with a small creamy white head. Aroma of whisky, alcohol and roasted coffee. Smooth carbonation. Taste is more whisky, liquorice and light roasted coffee, another good one from De Molen.

Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 13, 2012
In short: A Barrel Aged Imperial that doesnít 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 donít think it was possible to tell the barrels used were whiskey. It was obvious there was wood barrels involved, but there wasnít much of a whisky flavor, in fact the barrel flavor was smooth enough that I donít think I could have believed it was any type of barrel (Rum, Bourbon, maybe even Brandy). Alcohol is a bit apparent but not bothersome. Itís 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.

gyllenbock (5562) - 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.

Bottle looks simple but good. Beer in the glass deep black, small head. Heavy malty aroma. Starts strong, intense malty, fiery, strong coffee notes. A bit earty. Hints of bitter chocolate. Finish well balanced, warming. Great Imperial Stout!

Bottle: Thanks to Noize. Bottle # 165/1440: Small brown foamy head on top of a black beer. Smell coffee beans, cacao, roasted/burnt malts, hints of chocolate and alcohol. Taste coffee, coffee beans, roasted malts, bitter, dark chocolate, hint of warmth (alcohol), hint of tar and a slight hint of something earthy. Bitter, coffee and grass in the aftertaste. Low carbo, medium to full body and soft silky mouthfeel.

Bottle courtesy of ygtbsm94. Served in a sampler glass. Pours near black with a short head that recedes quickly. The nose brings some oak and a bit of whiskey along with some roast and chocolate. Touch of booze. Flavor has some barrel notes alongside roast and light chocolate. Fairly complex and pretty well integrated. Slight alcohol warmth. Medium body. Good, not great.
