Sean9689 (270) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 4, 2012
December 2011. Bottle from my cellar split with good friends. Served in an appropriate Narke tulip along side a 2007 Stormsaksporter and 2008 Kaggen! Stormaksporter...for comparison’s sake.

Looks like Kaggen!...black, oily, viscous, light tan head, thin collar, light lacing, wisps on top. Smooth booze, light smoke, some char, caramel, chocolate brownies, roasty malts, and oak. Well balanced sweetness and booze...exactly what I expect from Narke. Nothing but the best. The cognac is a little more pronounced on the palate then the nose. Char and smoke are less, excellent chocolate, wood, and caramel notes round things out. Nice dark chocolate boozy finish. Full, light carbonation, oily creamy finish.

Just as expected, simply excellent. I think this one is drinking nicely and the cognac notes are not too hot yet still there without a doubt. Wish I had another one, but alas, this is a very rare tick. A must-try if you ever get the chance.

(#800) Bottle at Akkurat. Pours black with a small brown head. Aroma is cognac, oak, chocolate, vanilla, dark dried fruits. Taste is bitter chocolate, sweet dried fruits with vanilla, vinous. Meddium body, feels a bit thin for the style but this also makes it easy drinkable.

AndySnow (2469) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 10, 2014
How: Bottle.
Where: Akkurat, Stockholm.
Appearance: Black colour with a small beige head.
Aroma: Cognac, alcohol, some vanilla.
Body: Full body oily mouthfeel, no carbonation.
Flavour: Alcohol, chocolate, cognac. A sweet aftertaste.
Comment: A good beer, but the alcohol is too evident and takes away a lot from both aroma and flavour.

solros (88) - stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 9, 2014
Doftar staut tills Konjak och dov sprit doften tar helt över. Färgen är genom mörk med låg skum intill glaskanten. Smakar lent och fylligt men extremt spritigt. En öl för den som älskar Konjak i kombination med öl.

teorn88 (1916) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 6, 2013
25cl bottle at Akkurat. 2010 Vintage. It pours a pitch black motor oil color with a small espresso head. Foam dissipates quickly into a small ring of bubbles. Aroma is big on sweet chocolatey notes with sweet liqueur and some wood notes. Taste is on the sweet side with big chocolatey notes and cognac and vanilla. Never boozy and easy drinking. Goes along perfectly with the chocolate truffles. Honestly inferior to the Kaggen version, less complex and less balanced but still a great beer.

Ataraxia (302) - Massachusetts, USA - NOV 28, 2013
Oilt black, thin mocha head. Slightly subdued aroma of rich chocolate, marshmallow, sticky fudge, vanilla, cognac, and a hint of smoke. Balanced bittersweet taste with a sharper vinous followup. A bit thin in body, though understandable at only 9%. The finish is clean and a little sticky

Godofthecellar (594) - NYC, New York, USA - NOV 11, 2013
12 oz bottle from Ma Che Siete poured into 3 fonteinen stemware. Poured a dark black with dark brown foamy head. Smell and taste of cognac, sweet but not overly sweet, extremely well balanced stout. No signs of oxidation smooth mouthfeel, and by far the best stout ive had that has been aged in Cognac

Smurf2055 (1293) - 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.

KansaiBeerLvrs (1326) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 15, 2013
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.
