gyllenbock (10034) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 26, 2012
Bottle from Brill & Co in June 2012.
Black with a minimal head. This was a lovely one, especially the taste. Complex with malt, licorice, port wine, dark fruit and some light notes of smoke. Nice body and mouth feel. Vinous and with a long aftertaste.

@ Basunen: lätt mjölkig doft. Trevlig smak. Ganske fyllig. Trevliga halv brända toner. Lätt rökighet.

Sampled from a 12.7 oz corked brown bottle this beer poured a black color with a medium sized foamy brown head that faded and left minimal lacing. The aroma was bourbon, cognac, vanilla, candied dark fruits and wood. The flavor was a marvelously complex and swirling blend of rich toasty malts, bourbon, vanilla, coconut, cherry, cognac, cocoa, molasses and tobacco. The finish was very long and complex with flavor that came in waves and lingered forever. Moderately full bodied and the alcohol was remarkably well hidden. Marvelous!

By far one of my favorite strong ales, as well as beer from the lost abbey crew. Shared with Mark, James, Bill and Jared after drinking

Draft at SIBF (multiple times! lucky us). Blackest brown, hazed brown head. Heavy stout malt nose, great medium, restrained mix of the big LA beers. Rich fruit, bourbon. Just what the angel’s share needed. Very tasty. popway (231) - California, USA - JUL 7, 2012
Mild carbonation, whispy head and oily texture, golden resin appearance, alcohol cloyed well in aroma with an enticing brandy scent and burnt sugar, no bitter lingering aftertaste, leaving me a bit dry and warmed up, In the taste department, I was left a bit unfufilled. Yet a very nice medium body hybrid. jsteel36 (1) - - JUL 2, 2012 does not count
Strong yet smooth taste with an amazing bourbon aftertaste. Great pour with a smooth head. Rustyham (1836) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - JUL 1, 2012
Nice subtle aroma of cherries and bourbon. Favorite is dry, slight hoppiness. Like a barrel aged dry stout, lots of hot alcohol. Not as hoppy as I expected. Meilby (11791) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 30, 2012

Pours black with a small tan head. Aroma has notes of malt, chocolate, alcohol, vanilla and oak. Taste is medium to heavy sweet and light bitter with a long sweet, boozy, oaky and vanilla finish. Body is full, texture is oily, carbonation is flat to soft.
