UPDATED: JUN 5, 2012 25th Spetember 2010. Borefts Beer Festival II.
Opaque black beer with a little tan head. Lovely dark malts, smooth, creamy and with some sweeteness coming from the Swedish oak. Totally inadequate rating cause I’m enjoying this too much!
30th October 2009
On tap at Borefts I. Opaque black stout, sweet malty nose. Soft palate. Sweet aromatic wood throughout but doesn’t taste oaky! Gets sweeter toward the finish but does leave a mildly bitter coffee aftertaste.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft @ BBF. Deep peaty oaky liquorice, some spices.
Flavour is very intense and extreme, deep lingering bitterness, rounded by a nice sweet roasted malt profile and a hint of wood. Not sure if I like it better than regular stormaktsporter. Very nice brew.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Draught at Borefts Beer Festival 2010, and at the after party. 2009 version, courtesy of Håge, thank you. This one has slightly less complexity than the other versions, the wood is apparent, and there are subtle hints of forest berries and cinnamon. Good stuff.

Tap, Borefts, thanks to team Narke. Massive oaky aroma, sour edge, wild beerries, coffee, cream, very good heart-warming alcohol, roasted malts, wood chips and burnt toast, little too aggressive but amazing.
