Pours clear dark mahogany color with a minimal head. Aroma of ripe fruits, some starch, raisins and caramel malts. Flavor of ripe fruits, somewhat harsh malt notes, caramel, mild hints of brown sugar and some wood. Sweet malty palate with somewhat harsh bready finish.
It’s hazy red-brown with a creamy head and the aroma has notes of caramel, malt, light alcohol and fruit. The sweet flavor has notes of roasted malt and loads of caramel, warming alcohol, fruit and the finish is dry with hints of licorice.

Bottle. Low but lasting creamy dense off-white head. Hazy orange red brown body. Lovely roasted malt choccolate caramel cream sweet aroma. Would have loved to be able to smell the raisins, but so sorry mates I cannot do that. Slightly peppery choccolate caramel hoppy flavor with a high carbonation and a long bitter sweet aftertaste. A hint of alcohol but not too overwhelming. gyllenbock (9177) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 19, 2012

On tap at Cardinals Juleølsymposium 2010. Pours hazy dark amber with a thin white layer of bubbles. Aroma is weak sweet malty caramel, even some toffee. Taste is more of the same, slightly on the sweet side, but not overdoing it. Weak hops. Easy drinkable.

Aroma is malty with lots of toffee and hints of berries. Also some vanilla and baking stuff. Flavour has raspberries, some toffee, malty notes and caramel. Some fruity hops occur after a sip. Also some yeasty and worty notes at the middle of the glass. Quite odd and somewhat messy, but for some reason I seem to enjoy this.
