Bottle from Systembolaget. It poured a clear dark amber liquid with a very small dirty grey-white head. Sweet flavour of candy, brandy and caramel. Semi-smooth mouthfeel, medium amount of carbonation and thick body. A bit to alcoholic for my taste. Could use some more malt and residual sweetness. Might improve over time. gyllenbock (9099) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 10, 2010
