2007 bottle at Akkurat in Stockholm. Nose is caramelly, rich chocolate, hints of toasted coconut, fermenty umami, and oily roasted nuts. Some strange metallic fish scale notes. Mouth is rich and swells with alcohol in the mouth, especially compared to the unoaked. I definitely preferred all the vintages of those. Although this is quite nice, it’s a bit of gilding the lily for me. Also the fish notes are strange--my lasting impression is of a German Chocolate cake doused in fish sauce.

2008 [email protected] Arms, Malmö Central. Compact dark color with light beige head. Aroma of figs, dates, overripe raisins, malt. I could sit and just smell this for a really long time! Taste is similar and very powerful, aftertaste of alcohol. Medium carbonation. Full mouthfeel. A really nice beer. Not for a day in the sun, but great to share in a pub with some friends.

Big thanks to those who allowed me to sample this rare brew. It is nearly opaque in my snifter, and has good carbonation all things considered. Big aroma of bourbon, vanilla, and chocolate. There is some alcoholic heat, along with vanilla and chocolate. There are ripe fruits, oaky tannins, everything is more restrained than in some other BA Stouts. Silky smooth on the palate, and coating at the same time. I wish I had a whole one of these.

2007 ver. Long pour into the glass produced a bit of head. Licorice, port, molasses aroma. Amazing mouth feel! There is heat but no burn. Very soft and subtle. Velvety sweetness that zaps the sides of your mouth and leaves your mouth watering. Amazing!

Bottle. Wonderful colour. Nice taste of chocolate and some coffe. Loong and very complex taste; chocolate, coffe, vanilla among others. The second best beer I have ever had (after the oak aged Yeti from Great Divide).

Impressionante la quantità di aromi e sensazioni che riesce a restituire. Ma non è propriamente la birra che berrei ogni giorno. Not my cup of tea.

I tasted the Kaggen stout at the brewery. It was not quite ready, but a world-class it was. Extremely complex but very tasty and refreshing.

I was lucky to drink this beer two times at the Molen bier festival, and I experienced it as the best beer I ever had. Look: very dark, with an magnificent dark brown creamy head. Smell: amazingly rich: raisins, other dark fruits, vanilla, bourbon, oak, coffee, dark chocolate, roasted malts. Maple syrup and creamy milk. too much to describe Taste; this is the best tasting beer I ever had. Compared to most other imperial stouts, all of the smell comes back in the taste. this beer is so well balanced. The aftertaste I like the most, long and it is so incredibly rich and creamy. creamy coffee and chocolate, and some bourbon..Mouthfeel: creamy and smooth. The alcohol is extremely well hidden. Worth the hype, this beer is art!
