Ljunkan (530) - NORWAY - NOV 23, 2009
UPDATED: NOV 28, 2009 On tap at Örebro Öl & Whisky Festival. Black color, small brown head. Aroma is chocolate, wood, vanilla, honey. Flavour is more clearly woody, less complex version than the regular Kaggen, though with some great chocolate, vanilla and honey flavours also found in the regular Kaggen. Velvety smooth mouthfeel. Balanced, and very nice to drink and sip on in small amounts. I think this is good but I tasted the regular Kaggen side by side thanks to a guy a met there, and this wasn’t as good as the original.

It looked the same as any other version of Kaggen. The only difference was in the smell and taste. This version was milder then the others and not as complex. Still a very nice beer with a great smooth mouthfeel. Taste and smell of chocolate, coffee and wood.

harrisoni (13733) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 15, 2009
On tap at Borefts BF 09. Black colour. Lasting tan head. Funnily enough a touch of whisky on this. Liquroice. It’s pretty good.

lassem (652) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 13, 2009
On tap at the 1. BBF, served by the marvolous brewers. This imperial porter has reached an almost mythelogical status here on ratebeer - unfortunately this version was the only one I tasted for some strange reason. Crazy. The pour came light blacky with no head at all - almost like a coca cola that have been in the glass over night and lost all its bubbles. The nose is anonymous (not in the bad way) and light. Theres a faint hint of smoke, some vanilla, chocolate and oak. The taste is again very low-key but very nice and complex. Dry fruits, burned down stuff, chocolate and caramels. The light smokyness adds nicely to the wholde picture. The mouthfeel is a little sticky and tingles from the alcohol... Nice beer. I still regret that I dindn´t taste the other versions. Stupidity - yes sir

Bullit (4012) - Burgos, SPAIN - NOV 11, 2009
Tap @ Borefts Beer Festival 2009. Black colour, tan head,. Aroma of vanilla, roasted malts. Flavour of roasted malts, vanilla, raisins and dark fruits. Again, the nose is amazing.

UPDATED: NOV 8, 2009 A Mes rate. Draught at 1st Borefts Beer Festival.
A little more oaky than the regular version. The fruit comes more to the front, masking the incredible chocolate of the ’non Swedish’ version a little too much. Certainly more bitter too. Don’t get me wrong, if I’d never had this before I’d be gushing right now. It’s just the normal version is better. That aside, looking at this as a different beer, it’s excellent.

Ober (2811) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - NOV 5, 2009
Tap @ 1ste Borefts. A black colored beer, with a dark beige head. The aroma of wood with dark malts with notes of chocolate. The taste of dark roasted malts with bitters. There are fruits, like berries. A little alcohol with some sweets. The aftertaste is bittersweet.

ggaughan (100) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, LUXEMBOURG - NOV 4, 2009
On tap at the 1st BBF at De Molen. Beer poured a black at night color with a small deep tan head. Nose provides chocolate notes, woody and a bit boozy. Taste gives some dried fruit, chocolate notes and a nice oak character, a bit peaty. A nice alternative to the original kaggen.

thewolf (11184) - Kolding, DENMARK - NOV 3, 2009
Tap @ 1st BBF De Molen.
Pours completely black with a small, staying, creamy, beige film head. Lovely aroma with wood, roasted malts, soft soft chocolate. Some dried fruit notes and blackberries that just enhance the feel. Medium, soft carbonation, lovely dry and creamy mouthfeel. Even better flavour, roasted, nuts, molasses, oak smoothness. Light oaky tartness. Nice lingering bitterness. Wonderful, but still a step or two behind the "real" kaggen.
