omhper (23466) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - NOV 27, 2009
Draught at Örebro Öl- och Whiskeyfestival. Very black, small beige head. Aroma of licorice and oak. Mid-sweet with clean, rounded mouthfeel. Mouthfilling flavour of coffee and licorice, somewhat oily with well hidden alcohol. The same velvetty softness as other Kaggen, but quite different oaky flavours.

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.

Travlr (21438) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - OCT 4, 2010
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.

Koelschtrinker (17307) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 11, 2011
2009: Tief malziger Antrunk, in den schnell eine deutliche Alkoholnote dringt. Sie zeigt sich aber nur kurz und kehrt dann in den Hintergrund zurück. Röstig, überaus cremig malzig, daneben auch holzig. Im Abgang wieder schärfer, was aber nur zu einem ausgewogenen Gesamteindruck führt. Kann man den ganzen Abend trinken! 11/11/11/12//11 2010: Der stark malzige Antrunk wird schnell intensiver und bietet Pflaumen- sowie intensive Schokoladennoten. Cremig, die Trockenheit kann nicht vollkommen verborgen werden. Das Bier baut keinesfalls ab sondern bleibt konstant auf hohem Niveau. Malzsüß, intensiv, gut! 12/14/14/15//14

harrisoni (17282) - 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.
