Medium aroma of malts, caramel, chocolate, bread, roasted malts and coffee.
Opaque black beer with slight yeast and with a large brown head.
Starts medium/heavy sweet with malts, caramel and chocolate; ends slightly bitter and dry with bread, roasted malts and coffee.
This beer is rather intense, complex and balanced. The aroma could have been stronger. Amazing appearance with a huge head at the beginning, but a medium head that keeps coming back at the end. Great flavour from beginning to end, especially for the aroma.
Tap, aged for 6 months, pours dark brown with a tan head. Lovely mix of chocolate, coffee and berries. Very good. gyllenbock (9100) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 30, 2016
