MesandSim (7118) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 7, 2009
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 (2812) - 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 (11233) - 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.

skortila (4619) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - NOV 3, 2009
On tap @ 1st BBF, de Molen. The aroma has chocolate, coffee, roast, dried fruits and smooth oak. Black coloured beer with a beige head and an oily texture. The taste is sweet with coffee, chocolate, wine and wood. Well bodied, well balanced. Very smooth in the palate, probably due to vanilla/oak. Sensational!

Fin (7671) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 3, 2009
On tap at the Borefts Beer Festival, De Molen Brewery, Bodegraven, Netherlands 30-10-09 Pours dark mahogany with a beige head. There is a lovely stringy bitterness to this, its also soft and creamy and velvety, totally sumptious. This leaves a sweet sticky coating around the mouth, coffeeness is good, softness from the oak is showing, quite wonderful once again from Narke. A8 A4 F9 P4 Ov17 4.2

jerohen (2029) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - NOV 2, 2009
On draft at 1st Borefts Beer Festival, Bodegraven. Black appearance, brown head. Those malts and chocolate are just fantastic, pleasant oaky flavor. My first beer of the evening and straightaway a very good one.

On tap at Borefts Bier Festival, De Molen. Black, beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, light oak, coffee, vanilla.

Very good and again totally different from the other versions.
