UPDATED: MAY 19, 2007 Bottled at the Bishops in Malmo, got very excited because the bartender told me it was the Kaggen version, although the label stated otherwise, oh well. The 2005 bottle is marked as brewed for the Bishops Arms. Pours a oily black with a very nice creamy brown head. Aroma of licorice, caramel, cocoa, damp wood, mulberries and light alcohol. Amazing body, warming, sweet but delicate. Main flavours are caramel, alcohol, forest fruits and rum/oak, the chocolate plays a supporting role but provides some roast bitterness. The finish is caramely, reasonably alcoholic. Best porter I have tried to date. Simply stunning.

Bottle at RBESG 2006. Just a hint of smokiness with some rich tobacco overtones. Chocolate is prominent and yummy.

Egon (478) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - OCT 9, 2006
Part of a bottle at Bishop Arms. A heavy, complex aroma. Sweet, with a taste of "vörtbröd". Vörtbröd is a bread eaten during christmas based on wort.. Ridiculus good beer! Maybe beeten by its "kaggen" version. Very dark liquid, with tastes of roasted rum ???

yngwie (13948) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 29, 2006
Bottled at Bishops Arms, Gothenburg. Jet black with a nice tan head. Truely a dark beer. Lots of aroma in it, mocha, chockolate, coffee, roasted malt, alcohol-notes, ripe apples and dried fruits. Chocolate and coffee dominates the flavor, there really is a lot of it, and it has a long dryish, coffee-bitter finish, feeling almost dusty. Creamy mouthfeel. Lovely! Thx Roger. (060825)

Sigmund (5280) - Tau, NORWAY - SEP 14, 2006
RBESG 2006 Grand Tasting. ABV was 9.0%. Pitch black colour, low tan head. Lovely vinous oaky aroma with raisins and roasty notes. Roasty flavour with coffee and oaky (fortified wine) notes. Simply an excellent beer from my favourite Swedish brewery.

UPDATED: OCT 11, 2006 (Bottle 25 cl) Black and opaque with a small, off-white head. Aroma of lightly burned malt. Solid and full-bodied with both sweet and burned malt and a slightly ashy edge. A lightly malt bitter finish. 260806

oh6gdx (20883) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 3, 2006
Bottled. Dark brown/ruby red colour with brownish red head. Aroma of burnt sugar, roasted malts and alcohol. Flavour is roasted malts, alcohol and malts. The alcohol gives a very "warming" feeling. A porter brought to the extremes. Superb!

RobertGBG (109) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 3, 2006
An really nice baltic porter with all the aroma that should be there, of course dark black, long and heavy bitterness.
