4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
December 2011. Bottle from my cellar split with good friends. Served in an appropriate Narke tulip along side a 2007 Stormsaksporter and 2008 Kaggen! Stormaksporter...for comparison’s sake.
Looks like Kaggen!...black, oily, viscous, light tan head, thin collar, light lacing, wisps on top. Smooth booze, light smoke, some char, caramel, chocolate brownies, roasty malts, and oak. Well balanced sweetness and booze...exactly what I expect from Narke. Nothing but the best. The cognac is a little more pronounced on the palate then the nose. Char and smoke are less, excellent chocolate, wood, and caramel notes round things out. Nice dark chocolate boozy finish. Full, light carbonation, oily creamy finish.
Just as expected, simply excellent. I think this one is drinking nicely and the cognac notes are not too hot yet still there without a doubt. Wish I had another one, but alas, this is a very rare tick. A must-try if you ever get the chance.
Tidenes bedre ØL. Var heldig å fikk smake denne på ølfestival i Drammen i 2010 eller 2011

17.04.2014, 0,25l bottle @ Akkurat Bar & Restaurant:lillunken (866) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAY 15, 2015
Small brown slightly bubbly-creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is slightly rich and sweet, oak barrel, dark malts, dark sugar, licorice, cognac, caramel, coffee, grass, dark fruits. Taste is very sweet, dark sugar, oak, burnt caramel, burnt coffee, grass, dark roasted malts, ashtray, caramel, cognac. Medium bitterness, slightly dry mouthfeel. Nice, but far from fantastic. I actually think the regular Stormaktsporter is way better.
Flaska på Akkuratt. Svart som natten, inget skum. Rökig, söt doft med lite cognactoner. Komplex smak med många lager, cognac, rökighet, sötma, svaga russintoner och avslutande lite tjära. Lång eftersmak. Mycket god! AdamChandler (5181) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 8, 2015

A - Pitch black 2 finger espresso head. Looks fantastic in the glass, nice oily sheen.
S - Really nice aroma. Sweet, whiskey liqueur and brown sugar and maple syrup with a solid espresso. A little smoke/tobacco
T - Sweet taste. Milk chocolate some burned oak and marshamallow as well as almonds. Good barrel presence with for sure sweet liquor and a little blackberry. Very well layered and extremely balanced
M - Dense oily mouthfeel with soft carbonation
O - This was an incredible imperial stout. The layering of flavors and overall presentation of this beer is remarkable.
Small bottle in a teku. Pours black with a small head. Aroma of roasted malts, Cognac and barrels, some chocolate, some sweetness, notes of coffee and dark fruits, and some light vanilla. Flavor the same with a great blend. Thick texture. A really good beer. neongolden (1832) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 20, 2015
(250ml bottle @ Akkurat..where else?, Dec 29 2014) Pours black with just a tiny ring of off white bubbles. Aroma contains fantastically deep intense dark chocolate and rich malts, smooth vinous cognac, woody, cooked blackberry and plum? Type dark fruit and an ashy roast. Palate is intensely concentrated, chocolate and dark malts with loads of that vinous cognac character and some wood, great barrel extraction. Lots of fruitiness from the cognac mid palate, dark fruit and grape, molasses sweetness. Some slight brandy heat on the finish, restrained but clear ashy roast, soft bitterness. Long long aftertaste. Medium full, oily, slightly creamy body with soft carb. The flavours are so intense and concentrated here, but the beer is smooth and elegant and easy to drink. Too easy! Phenomenal beer.
