This one is very, very different from the 14 and 15 which I’ve had recently. The pour is a really dark brown with a thin and creamy beige head. The nose is bland and subtle overall with a light hop and a mild roasty malt. A hint of grapfruity hops in the nose. The taste has a nice sweet roasted malt in the middle with a mild and lightly sweetened hop and fruity taste. A bit of alcohol on the finish with an overall boring taste. Maybe this one shouldn’t have been aged at all.

gyllenbock (4398) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 18, 2012
Bottle at Akkurat, January 2012. Dark brown with a small, slightly tan head. Sweet aroma of toffee, some roasted notes, raisin, nuts and earth. About the same in the sweet taste. Medium body and carbonation. Drinkable but nothing to write home about.

reebtogi (4042) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 22, 2011
650ml bottle pours a dark brown color with a small off-white head leaving a thin lacing behind. Aroma is roasted malts and some chocolate and a nice blend of hops. Taste is malty sweet with some toasted malt bitterness and a pleasing blend of hop bitterness. Medium body and soft carbonation. This is a great brew with some complexity and was a pleasant treat.

DocLock (7703) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 19, 2011
I consider the acquisition of this one in the Variety Pack to be a minor miracle in and of itself. The pour is thick, jet black and turbid, with a 2-finger clingy tan head and no light through the glass. Nose is roasty black patent malt, blackstrap molasses, cacao. Tastes roasty, with a pronounced black patent malt base,, some molasses, and hops. Not sweet, tastes charred and roasty, with a medium to light palate heft and complexity, leaving the 2nd half of this one rather pedestrian.

ads135 (2814) - Lawrence, Kansas, USA - NOV 26, 2011
Tastes of lightly roasted malts, coffee. The expected sweetness is tempered by the complex medley of other flavors, inc. a bit of vanilla. Full bodied taste explosion.

timfoolery (1124) - California, USA - NOV 25, 2011
On tap at the Grad in late 2010. This was the first bottled version of this beer, and it showed. Much weaker and smokier than it’s younger siblings. Drinking this, then all the others made this one seem impotent and unimportant. Really, I just felt sorry for it, despite the series being excellent. Of course, I was drinking it after about 7-8 years aged, which may be putting it a bit harshly.

Glouglouburp (5938) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 21, 2011
In short: A rich dark ale full of molasses and earthy stuff. Decent.
How: Bottle 12oz. Consumed when a few months of age, re-release version part of the Vertical Pack released early 2011
The look: Clear dark mahogany body topped by a medium beige head with medium retention
In long: The strong nose has molasses, lots of fresh tobacco, some bread whole-wheat bread and a tiny bit of smoke. Taste of fruit cake triple-dipped in thick molasses, earthy tree roots, nougat, wet beach wood, caramel, milk chocolate. Body is big, round, and rich. Obviously this beer is sweet but manages to avoid that annoying white/brown sugar sensation that too many sweet beers have. Not exactly my cup of tea but I must say that this is a well made beer for what it is. A decent beer from this jewish-inspired brewery, but brewing beer doesn’t sound very Jewish to me, I think the brewer is not a real Jew, he’s more like Jew-ish.

12 oz bottle. Pours dark brown with a small white head. Nose is malty with some spiciness. Taste is light maltiness, sort of like a cream stout, hint of chocolate, with a nice touch of roastiness. Medium body. Alcohol is present in a delectable way. Decent beer.
