Lilja (1527) - Malmö, SWEDEN - NOV 5, 2013
Smak och doft av choklad, kaffe, vanilj, ekfat och torkad frukt. Rund, len, lagom sötma med mycket smaker som framträder trots en aning tunn kropp. En bitter chokladbeska avrundar det hela. Roligt att lilla Qvänum kan göra så gott öl.

Black brew with brown edges resting underneath a solid light brown foam. Aroma is dense cookie dough, brighter chocolate, light bourbon and fine liquer. Flavor is superbly balanced with generous amounts of roasted barley brining notes of liqourice, bitter chocolate and coffe to the table, all rounded of by mellow bourbon notes, dark fruit character ending on a vinous semi-dry note. Overall intense but balanced in a way few darker "imperials" manages to be, all flavors delivered by a silky smooth, ellegant palate.

Vignale (1975) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 31, 2013
Flaska från SB. Fantastiskt fin doft med mycket vanilj, bourbonkaffe och chokladkola. Kroppen är kanske lite tunn och smaken blir inte lika fyllig som doften men med det sagt är det ändå en sensationellt lyckad fatlagring. Roligt att lilla Qvänum kan göra så stor öl.

Härlig bourbon och jordnöt i doften. Lagom krämig. Mycket balanserad och lyckad. Det här är den första riktigt bra utmanaren till Stormaktsporter utbrister jag. Lite väl ivrigt kanske och blir vänligt påmind om div svenska tungviktare...

omhper (19185) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 25, 2013
Bottled, from Systembolaget. Near black, small head. Chocolaty nose with vanilla and bourbon. Mid sweet with full body and soft mouthfeel. Relaxed and harmonious with tobacco and chocolate, and interesting oak flavours. Deep and full of character. Glad to see this excellent brewer attempting a style of beer that can get him to the top percentiles.

Bottle. Opaque black liquid with small tan head. Aroma of vanilla, toffee, wood, bourbon, chocolate, biscuit, butterscotch and light licorice. Taste is light to medium sweet and light bitter with notes of toffee, bourbon, chocolate and wood. Medium to full bodied with medium carbonation. Quite nice, bit thin.

A little milder aroma of oak barrels. The taste is indescribable. Oak barrels, cocoa, coffee, not dry. That’s exactly how I want my porter. But there is only one beer that is better and it is Narke Stormaktsporter. But this beer is in the same league. The aftertaste is good as hell .It changes character very much. Now I just enjoy! How to obtain this you should be happy! Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Surprisingly tasty, with a huge dominance on chocolate with a backdrop of vanilla. I didn’t know it was bourbon aged but could guess it before I was finished. Good appearance and mouthfeel. Definately getting more of these!
