UPDATED: JAN 6, 2015 Deeply roasted, vanilla, dark fruit. Very very roasted with a bit of booze, very oaky, but not very well combined. A lot of flavours, but I think a few years of aging would improve it, very powerful roastiness, bitterness, coffee, chocolate, dark fruits and oak. Great beer. gyllenbock (9160) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 29, 2014
On tap at Mikkeller Bar Stockholm.
Black with a minimal tan head. Aroma and taste of bitter chocolate, roasted malt, wood, port, licorice and some light notes of berries. The body was thick. The finish was long and with warming alcohol. A pleasant one.

Vertical with 666
Aroma is sweet with oat, nuts and whisky tones; peat and some smoke. Also hints of hay. More stale than 666. Flavour is sweet with whisky, woody tones, peat and licorice. Also some salmiac. Pleasant, better than 666. More stinging and aggressive though.
