Draft at ACBF. Pours dark brown with massive over sized head. Not the greatest pour for a 15cl taster glass... Smells sweet, toffee, not much spice like the other pannepots. Taste is caramel, yeast, alcohol, wood, and very light dark fruit. Not much port barrel for being aged in one for 3 years. Well, actually there’s not much dark fruit and a lot of sweetness, so I guess it went a little too long. Definitely not the best version, but damn good still.

On draft at Kulminator. Looks like it poured on nitro. Looks great, black with a silky off white head. The nose has big dark malts and dark fruit. It’s a smoother version of the regular pannepot with a bit of burnt toast thrown in.

Ok, this is exactly what I am all about. Dark black color with a reddish tint, thin tan head that settles quickly. Bubbles rising from the etching of the glass. Aroma is of dark dried fruits (cherry, dates), candy sugar, alcohol, and a bit of "baked-goods spices". This beer is HEAVY on the sweet and tasty flavors. Mostly in line with the aroma, but with a load of that amazing Belgian candy thing. More intricate flavors came about after the initial gulp: coffee, roasted nuts, raisins, licorice, and alcohol. Really subtle alcohol flavor for such a big beer. Took me awhile to crack this one because it is so rare and epic and whatnot, but I encourage you to "drink em if you got em"! Though it would be cool to see what they’re like in a few years, they’re good now FOR SURE! Wow. One of the best ever.

On tap at CBC 2012. Beer in the glass dark brown, almost black, nice head. Mild-malty aroma, light fruity touch. Starts mild-malty with fruity hints, a bit alcoholic. Finish more and more fruity like berries, spicy-malty. Aftertaste with hints of raisins. Great beer!

Bottle. Poured dark reddish/brown color with an average light brown frothy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Medium to heavy complex dark fruit, wood, caramel and alcohol aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy complex dark fruit sweet flavor with medium to heavy fruity sweet finish and a bite of alcohol. Standout brew.

Svesse (5875) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - NOV 16, 2012
(Draught at Stockholm Beer Festival, 6 Oct 2012) Reddish brown colour with brief, beige head. Malty, fruity nose with dried fruit, caramel, chocolate and vinous aromas of rum-raisins. Malty, fruity taste with notes of caramel, dried fruit, chocolate, raisins, hints of oak wood and a warming, vinous finish with a spicy, earthy bitterness. Full body, quite sweet. Bold, tasty and very nice.
