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

KansaiBeerLvrs (1325) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 23, 2013
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.

Hypo_Luxa (52) - Osaka, JAPAN - DEC 22, 2013
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!

Flaska på SMÖF 2013. Äntligen. En lång väntan är över. Nog lever denna raritet upp till sin hype. Naturligtvi omöjligt med en objektiv rate på en så blytung legend. --------&# 2007: Balanserad med tydliga men samtidigt lagom toner av bourbon. Varm bouquet. Smak av kaffe, och cholkad. Rund och len. Underbar. Världsklass. --------&# 2009: Fantastiskt mäktig. Härligt balanserad. Slutar analysera och bara njuter...

Great beer. Every one should have one of those! Smooth and complex with vanilla and heavy malted body. Tried 2007 and 2009 but still got one bottle from 2006. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mikeyo1 (92) - Linköping, SWEDEN - OCT 26, 2013
Sample at smöf 2013, 2007 edition. Sweet aroma of raisins, oak, chocolate, warm alcohols, dark bread and dark fruits, some nuttiness. Taste is like aroma but with a soft vanilla tone and a more distinct oak character. Long sweet and dry aftertaste of dry raisins and chocolate, moderate bitterness.
