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.

Huhzubendah (2807) - Washington DC, USA - APR 5, 2013
Served in a Hair of the Dog snifter. Acquired via large trade with Mike. A lot of generosity in the beer community. The beer is dark brown with a few random brown bubbles. There was actually a hiss upon wrestling off the screw top. The aroma is fabulous. Molasses and caramel, booze and candy, a touch of sweetness but by no means cloying. Fabulous flavor. Hype aside this beer is actually delicious. 29% abv is masked extremely well. Of course, this beer is 19 years old. So mellow and smooth. No carbonation. Like a fine after dinner cordial. Chocolate and port wine with rich molasses. Similar in some regards to Samuel Adams MMM. World class. What an experience.

25cl, at 9%Vol, new exclusive Swedish brew Anno 2010, thx alot to kraddel!, very complex Stout, roasted/woody and slightly spicy/vinous, not too heavy, very balanced, hazy, good head, top class!, yet slightly less refined than the Kaggen

Tap at Borefts 2012. Best beer I have ever drunk. Blows you away. Pitch black with small brownish head. Rich, creamy, complex and super smooth. Cognac, chocolate, oak, sweetness, roasted malts. Soft carbo. Fantastic.

In bottle @Machesietevenutiafa VISUAL: Dark and obscure brown color with a beige head. AROMA: Raosted malt, coffee and wood. Well balanced notes of oak and cognac which gives a special sense to this beer. Final touch of fruity at the end. TASTE: starting with a medium sweet of the malts and continuing with a long lasting bitterness. I literary loved this version of stormaktsporter hope i will have the chance to try it again.
