stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - NOV 10, 2010
Sample at Borefts Beer Festival 2010. Pours a pitch black beer with a firm chocolate head. The aroma is roasted, sweetness, coffee and some licorice. The flavor is roasted, wood, sweetness, some licorice and notes of smoke. The palate is roasted with sweetness and smooth. Overall a beer close to perfect. Nice balance, good complexity and a nice experience.

Thanks to Darren (lagomsweden) for sharing this gem. Pours deep brown with a finger thick dark tan head. Huge wonderful nose of coffee, dark chocolate and roasted malt. The flavor is incredibly smooth and balanced with the same influences as the nose, with the addition of a long and lasting finish, ending in what seems to be toasted marshmallows. A huge treat. Thanks Darren!

On tap at HaandBryggeriet Beer Festival, Drammen. Pitch black colour, brown head. Lovely complex aroma, cognac, oak, vanilla, roasty notes (coffee, liquorice). Excellent flavour, medium sweet and distinctly roasty, notes of cognac, oak, coffee, caramel and liquorice. Top notch!

Smurf2055 (1399) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 24, 2013
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.

Vaiz (3343) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - SEP 26, 2010
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.

Compared to the Swedish oak edition, this has more spice in it but it conflicts somewhat with the gentle taste of the beer. The aroma is also somewhat less profound.
