Bottle. Wonderful colour. Nice taste of chocolate and some coffe. Loong and very complex taste; chocolate, coffe, vanilla among others. The second best beer I have ever had (after the oak aged Yeti from Great Divide).

Impressionante la quantità di aromi e sensazioni che riesce a restituire. Ma non è propriamente la birra che berrei ogni giorno. Not my cup of tea.

When you got in the glass it foaming beautiful and get a nice aroma of coffe and chocolate in the hole surroundings. In the mouth it is round and flavor rich. And when you had swollow it you just want anouther sip. Almost a perfect beer.

I tasted the Kaggen stout at the brewery. It was not quite ready, but a world-class it was. Extremely complex but very tasty and refreshing.

I was lucky to drink this beer two times at the Molen bier festival, and I experienced it as the best beer I ever had. Look: very dark, with an magnificent dark brown creamy head. Smell: amazingly rich: raisins, other dark fruits, vanilla, bourbon, oak, coffee, dark chocolate, roasted malts. Maple syrup and creamy milk. too much to describe Taste; this is the best tasting beer I ever had. Compared to most other imperial stouts, all of the smell comes back in the taste. this beer is so well balanced. The aftertaste I like the most, long and it is so incredibly rich and creamy. creamy coffee and chocolate, and some bourbon..Mouthfeel: creamy and smooth. The alcohol is extremely well hidden. Worth the hype, this beer is art!

The best beer I’ve ever had. Bottle of the 2006 served at Akkurat in Stockholm. Dark black color with small brown head. Smells sweet and of caramel, but the taste is balanced and not overly sweet. Smoky and earthy without being overpowering. Very smooth. Though high in alcohol, cannot taste it.

UPDATED: NOV 7, 2007 Bottle version 2006. Special thanks to Jack Pano from Sweden for bringing me this gift from the brewer. Pours a blacker than black beer with a solid brown to darkbrown head. The aroma is roasty with vanilla oak, coffee and fine chocolate and some notes of apples too. The appearance is simply superb with nice lacing. Flavour of slight peated malts, dark chocolate, coffe mokka, raisin bread and a hint of honey leaves this beer in a perfect balance. The use of noble hops comes out just enough in the taste but not overwhelming. The slight bitter aftertaste with notes of basterd sugar keeps on talking while some alocohol is well noticable but not attacking. N° 1, IMO a well deserved place and certainly not overrated at all and after all a superb brew and some left to stash away for quite some time :-) Nice to notice too that I am the 100rd RBian who rates this excellent beer!

Bottle @ Man in the Moon (Stockholm) Heavy bourbon and honey aroma in the nose. This beer has been oak-aged and you can taste it. Small sweetness, perfectly balanced. Maybe the best dark beer ever made.

Bottle at Bishop’s Arms, Karlstad, Sweden. This is art! Not bloody beer. Fantastic honey/toffee/chocolate flavor with unimaginary nice taste. This is not bollocks! You CAN’T have a better beer than this IMO. I won’t ever forget the wonderful taste, one can only hope to get the chance to taste it again.
