UPDATED: APR 19, 2014 Bottle very generously shared by Levi. Thanks a ton my friend, what an absolute treat. Pours a very dark brown with reddish highlights around the edges. A lasting mocha ring, with a skim that lasts as well. Aroma is sublime: Crystallized honeyed malts, lots of floral character. Some smoke, chocolate, toffee. Very, very nice. Taste is also amazing. Lots of wood character, seems like red wine even. Vinous, floral, a bit boozy. Smoke, chocolate, oak. Slight booze heat that lasts. Just amazing, slightly more restrained booze to fill out the palate would make this a 5 for sure. I could smell and taste this one all night. Thanks again Levi.

Vintage 2008. Bottle sent from teorn88 (thanks so much, Matteo!) – been trying to hunt one of these down for several years now! Pours jet black with a very small tan head. Nose brings out lots of woody oak, roasted malt, and maybe some dry powdery cocoa. Flavour is fairly complex, with lots of oak and wood, medium roasted malt, and maybe some dried overripe fruits. Very woody and oaky, which are the flavours that dominate. Extremely soft palate, with low carbonation – no hint of oxidation. This is surely excellent, but number 1 in the world? A treat to have, but this is massively over-hyped.

Many thanks to Joey for sharing these. Cocoa, smokiness, medium sweet, chewy texture, delicious stuff with great rounded character. I’d probably give it closer 5 if I felt more comfortable giving a higher score to a beer I’ve literally tried less than 4 oz of.

hotstuff (4069) - Indiana, USA - MAY 5, 2014
Rated on 4-28-2012 at Fort Wayne, IN Gathering. This bottled beer courtesy of jsquire, pours a very small head, opaque almost black body, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is wood, smoke, bourbon, and vanilla. The flavor is dark fruits, vanilla, a lot of bourbon, and smoke. The mouthfeel is light carbonation and this beer is medium-full bodied. Overall, wow another great sipping and complex beer! The various flavors come together very well to make for a very good tasting beer. This beer is well worth trying and a beer I want to have again.

En liten smakportion hos Närke Kulturbryggeri. Fantastisk Doft och smak. Först blev det jag lite förvånad av smaken men så exploderar den!

Bottle '06 - thanks Staffan - Pours a dark black with a tan head. Some viscosity and a nice body. It's a little peaty and some kind of woodiness. The taste is a smooth, rich chocolate with dark fruit. It's kind of mind blowing that I'm speechless. Have a Merry Kaggen Christmas!!! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

2007 vintage, 9%. Bottle courtesy of Per & shared at Christmas Tasting. The pour was a purple viscous thick pour with a brown head that lasts. An intense nose with hints of licorice with an even better flavor. Tons of chocolate, woodsy, coffee, no booziness but lots of warming. Woodsy thick molasses like mouthfeel velvety. An amazing beer, the nose is hard to pin down but each sip reveals different flavors & the aftertaste lingers while continuing to reveal new tastes. Umami, meaty wonderful stuff. Everything about this beer lingers from the smell, to the taste, the aftertaste & the head of foam. It’s become very reddish after warming up for a few hours while the taste gets smokey. This white whale of a beer lived up to the hype & was even better than the 2009 Dark Lord I had.

2007 ver. Long pour into the glass produced a bit of head. Licorice, port, molasses aroma. Amazing mouth feel! There is heat but no burn. Very soft and subtle. Velvety sweetness that zaps the sides of your mouth and leaves your mouth watering. Amazing!
