UPDATED: FEB 10, 2009 Botella. Black colour with a light brownish colour. Aroma of roasted malt with coffee and chocolate. Very good mouthfeel. The roasted malt is very much present in the flavour along with chocolate, coffee, some dark fruits and good bitter hops. Tasty brew indeed.
Also tasted a 2004 version.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled 2003 vintage: Dark red/brown coloured.Light brown medium sized head. Buttery, light roasted and coffeish aroma. A little vague for my likings. Chocolate, roast and coffee in the flavour. The roastyness last till the end. The beer is a little dry and insipid. Had it cellered for approx. 1,5 year.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Vintage 2006, and I tasted it January 2007. It’s black-brown with a creamy head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt and coffee. The flavour is sweetish and has a fairly thin body with notes of roasted malt and some coffee. The bitterness is nice. I had expected more, but I can see that this matures well, so I’ll try to get hold of a few bottles to mature in the cellar. 1836 I have tasted some older ones since, and they were really nice with a lot more character and body.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: SEP 4, 2006 060902: Changed my rating. Had a bottle from 2004, stored for 2 years. Still black with a brownish head. This beer really grows with time. Wonderful soft malty chocolate aroma, even better flavor, chocolate, mailky and with a perfect palate. Very, very good. I recommend everyone to but a lot of bottles and then store them...
Also, without adding it to my rating, I just loved the 1986 verision of this beer that was sold at the Stockholm Beer Festival 2004...
