(Bottle, Akkurat’s Birthday Party, Stockholm, 29 Dec 2010) Pitch black colour with frothy, beige head. Malty, roasted nose with notes of strong black coffee, tobacco, liquorice and oak wood. Roasted, malty taste with black coffee, dark rye bread, liquorice, tobacco, tar and oak wood. Just a hint of cognac shining through. Almost full body, slightly sweetish. Very tasty and in excellent balance. Lovely beer.

gyllenbock (4560) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 29, 2010
Bottle at Akkurat, December 28, 2010. Black, wonderfully thick liquid with a tan and creamy head. Aroma of coffee, oak, roasted malt, also some cognac somewhere in the background. The taste was about the same with some warming alcohol. Very nice mouth feel and a great body on this wonderful beer. Well done again Närke Kulturbryggeri!

Clear oakish nose with hints of vanilla. Taste is amazing and consists of strong roasted coffee. A bit sweet but wonderfully thick liquid. Very well balanced.

Christian (11055) - Odense, DENMARK - DEC 25, 2010
Pitch black with a lasting and creamy tan head. Big roasted aroma with fruit, licorice and chocolate, and lots of wine character. Intense and complex dark flavour with chocolate, and with vineous, warming alcohol. Compared to my perfect rating of the regular (bourbon aged) Kaggen, this is lower, but mostly because it was too barrel/cognac dominated and quite fresh (2009, tasted in October 2010) and a bit rough around the edges.

koekiesbakker (89) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 18, 2010
More alcohol in the nose and taste, lighter mouthfeel and a bit sweeter than the regular version: liked that one way better.
