50 cl bottle at Haket, Göteborg. On November 30, 2013.
Marked 5.7% ABV from what I could read, Systembolaget has it listed this year as 5.2%.
Clear dark reddish brown color, tan head. Grainy, a bit harsh, hints of smoke scent. Light acidic, grainy, flat taste. Thin and fizzy mouthfeel, low bitterness.
Fully ruby red, cola-like carbonation to amber-yellow head, fast gone. Fruity (dark fruit as plums) and bread-malty nose, Bocklike. Sweetish, liquorice. Bready taste, blueberry, tobacco, little hint of piney hops, but mostly dark, sweet malts. Rather thin, watery body. Carbonation gets fast exhausted. Lets one down after some time, after a very good start. German character, Scandinavian MF. gyllenbock (9177) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 9, 2009
Amber with a medium beige head. Spices, roasted malt, hops, caramel.

(Bottle, Stockholm Beer Festival, 1 Oct 2011) Dark brown colour with frothy, beige head. Malty, roasted nose with dark bread, toasty malt, crispbread and raisins. Malty, slightly roasted taste with notes of dark bread, wort, chocolate and hints of raisins. Medium body, with a certain sweetness and a mild, spicy bitterness. Quite nice. Hansen (8595) - Assentoft, DENMARK - APR 9, 2010
Amber and clear. Has an off-white head, mostly lasting. Heavy caramel aroma, notes of lactic acid too. Flavor is thin compared to the aroma, faint sweet, light acidic. Watry texture.

Flaske 500ml fra Systembolaget, Kiruna. Drukket i Skibotn 23 Des 14. Mørk rødbrun. Litt skum som daler raskt. Beskjeden aroma av malt & karamell. Smaken det samme med innslag av knekk etter hvert. larsga (7540) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 27, 2008
Biggish light brown shiny head. Deep dark red translucent body. Fruity vanilla fudge aroma, mellow and harmonic. Dry roasty buttery vanilla fudge taste with fruity caramel notes. Mid-bodied. Dry fruity metallic roasty aftertaste. Fruityness clashes with the metal, and really spoils it for me. (0.5l bottle, Systembolaget, Charlottenberg.)
