4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled, thanks HåGe & Berith! Black, dark brown head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate and grain whisky. Mid-sweet with full bodied. The cognac here is moire subtle than the bourbon in Kaggen. Soft and edgesless, plenty of licorice and coffee, slight notes of wood. Not as direct and flavourful as Kaggen, but really well made.

Bottle@Omhpers place. Thanks for sharing this gem with us!
Apperance: Dark as night with a small, brown, head and some lacing.
Smell: Alcohol, Cognac, Roasted malts, Vanilla.
Taste: Cognac, Alcohol, Roasted malts, Caramel, Chocolate, Vanilla and some wood.
Palate: Nice, smooth and elegant. Not as filling or smooth as the normal kaggen! but still top notch. Let this one warm up _alot_ as it was very boozish when it was colder.
Another fine brew from the "hippies" at Närke that makes me wish that i could get my hands on their brew outside the pubs. If you’re anywhere close to Akkurat, give this beer a try. You won’t regret it!
HG, Berith and Christoffer, you guys rock!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle sampled at Akkurat, Stockholm. Pours out in an opaque black colour with a low firm pale brown head. Big rounded and deep aroma of layers of dark malts, luxury chocolate, tobacco, wood and sweet coffe with hints of prunes and red berries. Full-bodied with rich rounded deep flavours of dark chocolate, roasted malts, fudge, wood, heather, tobacco and dried red grapes. Smooth and really rounded chewy mouthfeel. Long balanced finish of milky and dark chocolate, wood, roasted malts with hints of cognac. Darn tasty for sure but I still prefer the original Stormaktsporter and Kaggen over this. Still great stuff.

(Bottle, Akkurat’s Birthday Party, Stockholm, 29 Dec 2010) Pitch black colour with frothy, beige head. Malty, roasted nose with notes of strong black coffee, tobacco, liquorice and oak wood. Roasted, malty taste with black coffee, dark rye bread, liquorice, tobacco, tar and oak wood. Just a hint of cognac shining through. Almost full body, slightly sweetish. Very tasty and in excellent balance. Lovely beer.

Bottle at Akkurat, December 28, 2010.
Black, wonderfully thick liquid with a tan and creamy head. Aroma of coffee, oak, roasted malt, also some cognac somewhere in the background. The taste was about the same with some warming alcohol. Very nice mouth feel and a great body on this wonderful beer. Well done again Närke Kulturbryggeri!

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pitch black with a lasting and creamy tan head. Big roasted aroma with fruit, licorice and chocolate, and lots of wine character. Intense and complex dark flavour with chocolate, and with vineous, warming alcohol. Compared to my perfect rating of the regular (bourbon aged) Kaggen, this is lower, but mostly because it was too barrel/cognac dominated and quite fresh (2009, tasted in October 2010) and a bit rough around the edges.
