4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap @ BBF ’10. Dark color, medium brown head. Great Kaggen aroma with some grapes and cognac added. Quite sharpish cognac in taste, bit too sharp for my taste. I prefer the full bodied flavors of the original Kaggen.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tap at 2nd BBF @ De Molen. The cognac takes off the sharp edges of the normal stormaktsporter but it still retains most of the amazing flavor. Slightly harsh still but extremely full bodied and loads of flavors. Amazing brew. Lucky us to have had half a keg at the afterparty.
