At Akkurat. Pours black with a small tan head, quick to leave. Smell is surprisingly fruity. Bit of ashy roast. Taste smooth sweet coco powder with a sweet cognac finish. Bit of tangy red fruit, good barrel presence still after 3 years. Mid to full bodied, you can taste alcohol but don’t get much of a burn. Very well balanced. Well done. I think this lives up to the hype.

245 SEK 9% Akkurat 15th anniversary  beer. Dark inky black, viscous pour with a thin tan head which dissipated quickly. Nice cognac sweet chocolate taste. Very silky smooth, cognac, oaky, sweet & a bit boozy but incredibly smooth. Excellent easy drinking stuff.

Pour courteousy of AgentZero. Pours a dense black in color with about a 1/4 fingers worth of cocoa colored head. Nose is smokey, boozy, cognac, and malt. Flavor is very cognac forward, it comes on pretty hard. The booziness wears off and it falls back on its smokiness and malt. Mouthfeel is on the thicker side with little carbonation, some heat, and a long finish. This is another solid Narke offering. I think it would pair perfectly with a nice cigar. Perfect sipper.

mcberko (6420) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 29, 2013
Vintage 2010. 250mL bottle at Akkurat, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma of cognac upfront, deep dark dried fruits, and some light roasted malt. Flavour brings out complex notes of cognac upfront, deep dark fruits and deep roasted malt. Highly complex, with the cognac highly situated in the flavour profile, though well accentuated. I prefer the regular Stormaktsporter but this is highly complex and enjoyable.

Draft. A black beer with a brown head. The aroma has notes of smoke, roasted malt, cognac, and soy sauce. The flavor is sweet with notes of alcohol, smoke, roasted malt, chocolate, and cognac, leading to a dry, roasted, and alcoholic finish.

Tap @ Borefts 2012. Taken from notes.Pours deep black with no head. Aromas of liquorice (!), dark fruits. Very mellow taste, syrupy and a bit bitterness. Nice but there are better BA RIS...

@ borefts beer festival 2012. Old rating. It goes: Thick, beautiful black with a dark brown head. One of the easiest 5s in appearance yet. Licorice, roast, lots of barrel. Got lots of sweetness from the cognac. Soft, but still quite lively. Really really good! What a mouthful!

26/III/13 - 25cl bottle @ De Hopduvel (Gent) - brewed: 1/III/10 - bottled: 1/XII/10 (2013-268) Thanks to Bobochamp for sharing the bottle!

clear dark brown beer, supposedly a small dark brown head, but my pour was flat. Aroma: sweet, caramel, cognac, bit sugary, vanilla, alcohol, very woody, bit earthy, cocoa powder, more alcohol. MF: soft carbon, medium to full body, bit oily mouth feel. Taste: bit sourish first, caramel, quite some cognac, mocha, coffee, slightly sweet, earthy. Aftertaste: sourish touch, pretty bitter and hoppy, tobacco, mocha and coffee, touch of caramel, woody (oak?), some dark forest fruits.

Thanks to Brad for sharing. Served alongside regular and Kaggen Stormaktsporter. Nose is fairly heavy on the cognac with a bit of roast and chocolate. Slight boozy and a medium body.
