Small (250 ml?) bottle at 3 Små Rum.
Labeled "Närke Svensk Ek! Stormaktsporter - Macrök 2".
2009 edition, 9.5% ABV, sampled on March 6, 2012
Black color, dense brown head. Chocolate, lactic, oak, smoke, whisky scent, though with for me a bit too evident alcohol. Smoke, sweet, lactic, caramel, honey, smooth ooooh so good taste! Very smooth mouthfeel. Berry and roasted aftertaste. Medium bitterness. Very very nice!

tkrjukoff (4334) - SWEDEN - MAR 10, 2012
Bottle @ 3 Små Rum. Pours pitch black, oily thick with a tense great brown head leaving small laces. Aroma is fullbodied as kaggen is with a very nice nutty touch, also noticeable oakiness and some smokeyness. Flavor as great, once again lots of nuts and oak. Finishes longlived sweet, roasted, bitter and honey sweet.

dnstone (3152) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - FEB 20, 2012
Super chocolatey and fresh oak aroma. Pitch black in color with a creamy brown head. Sweet chocolatey taste, the wood is quite subtle. Excellent! On tap at the Borefts Beer Festival 2010

hopscotch (11024) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 23, 2011
Bottle… This beer rocks!… Pours dark brown and murky with a miniscule, creamy, khaki head. The aroma screams “VANILLA” and “FUDGE” with a small splash of vinous tawny port. Full-bodied and velvety with soft carbonation. The flavor presents sweet fudge, vanilla and mocha up front; then heavy, burnt, woody bitterness on the flip-side. Finishes scorched, bitter, mildly acidic and lightly acrid. Big-time thanks to a good friend for sharing this world class wonder! You know who you are.

darkguardian (733) - Florida, USA - SEP 22, 2011
Pours a deep black with a small tan head. Nose is wood, rich chocolate and roasted malt. More pure and sweeter up front than normal kaggen. Has a smooth woody bitterness on the backend. Wood is there throughout and gives this beer a very clean overall balance. I liked this quite a bit more than regular Kaggen. Huge thanks to the supplier of this bottle, you know who you are.

MrGGen (334) - ITALY - JUL 2, 2011
Versa di nero come la pece con una schiuma color cioccolato. L’aroma è liquirizia, arrosto, dolce e caffè. Il sapore è liquirizia, tostato, vaniglia, legno, dolce e caffè. Al palato è arrosto con dolcezza e molto liscia. una birra molto vicina alla perfezione. Ben equilibrata e complessa.

Maltzilla (38) - Florida, USA - JUN 30, 2011
An exceptional example of a porter. The pour was jet black, which then birthed an low but thick espresso head. This slowly receded into lacing. Strong notes of cocoa, coffee, some vanilla are upfront in the nose. Got some dark chocolate, milder coffee and dark fruits (predominantly candied prunes) invade the palate. Some of the wood tannins are mildly apparent in the back. What a treat! Thanks to JW!!

daknole (11036) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUN 25, 2011
Black. Roasty chocolate aroma, oak, molasses, prunes. Flavor is toasty, cocoa, prunes, molasses. Freaking great!

Koelschtrinker (19743) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 11, 2011
2009: Tief malziger Antrunk, in den schnell eine deutliche Alkoholnote dringt. Sie zeigt sich aber nur kurz und kehrt dann in den Hintergrund zurück. Röstig, überaus cremig malzig, daneben auch holzig. Im Abgang wieder schärfer, was aber nur zu einem ausgewogenen Gesamteindruck führt. Kann man den ganzen Abend trinken! 11/11/11/12//11 2010: Der stark malzige Antrunk wird schnell intensiver und bietet Pflaumen- sowie intensive Schokoladennoten. Cremig, die Trockenheit kann nicht vollkommen verborgen werden. Das Bier baut keinesfalls ab sondern bleibt konstant auf hohem Niveau. Malzsüß, intensiv, gut! 12/14/14/15//14
