A black colored beer, with a small thick beige head. The aroma of dark malts, some smoke, coffe, chocolate, with some liquorice juice. The taste of smoked malts, dry bitter chocolate, some coffee and wood. Great combination.

(Original review 2012-08-16): 2007 bottle shared by (and split with) blatantdream. Thanks!

Almost zero release of air pressure when opened. Viscous body pours from the tiny bottle leaving minimal bubbles up top but no actual head. Chocolate and roasted malts swirl amongst toffee in the nose, creating a delicate aroma that simply isn’t strong enough. The first victim of age, perhaps?

Stormaktsporter boasts an intense, potent, complex flavor profile. Deeply roasted malt; rich, decadent chocolate; booze character integrates marvelously with the stout base. Not super complex, but the chocolate in this beer is arguably the best of any stout I’ve encountered. Also, the balance here is impeccable.

Massive body carries all of these flavors to my palate. Rockin’ mouthfeel. Somehow, this ~5-year-old bottle is completely void of oxidization.

This stuff is great... Such a shame the bottles are so tiny (not to mention absurdly difficult to acquire). Color me impressed.

UPDATED: JUL 13, 2013 Perfection! The best Imperial stout I drank. Wonderful fragrance. Perfect taste. Long and sweet aftertaste. Sweden’s best beer? I can agree with. If you’re buying one that is 2006 vintage, as you should have. It’s the best. Bought my on Akkurat Bar in Stockholm. 345 SEK cost a bottle. Clearly worth it!

2006 bottle at Akkurat. Pours jet black with nice creamy brown head. Aroma is beautiful mix of raisins, molasses, black malt, and sherry. first sip is pure heaven with notes of honey, mild coffee, black strap molasses . this is the most drinkable imperial stout I have ever had. the finish is dark and milk chocolate. amazing.

250ml Bottle 2005 Vintage 9% abv. It pours pitch black, thick and oily in the glass creating a small but wonderful deep brown head. The wonderful roasted aroma, with the coffee and chocolate notes and a slight hint of vanilla, tar and wood. So complex and as it warms it becomes even better But nothing can prepare you for the taste that is about to follow. The roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, wood notes, some distant ripe fruit. So many flavors , so wonderfully balanced together. I’m very fortunate to have 4 more bottles in the cellar.

Bottle at The Stout Tasting, London - huge thanks to Ken for sharing this bucket list beer. Vintage 2009. Pours black-brown with a creamy, brown foam head. Similar aroma to the regular version, with the addition of some vanilla notes, plenty of dark chocolate. Medium sweet flavor with bitter cocoa, definite alcohol notes, earth, further dark chocolate. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Warming finish with more dark chocolate, brownies. Deep and tasty.

The 500th rating of this beer! 2009 vintage @ THE Stouts Tasting. Cheers to Ken for supplying this top want! The pour’s deep brown with a small khaki head. The nose is deep, earthy sweet chocolate. Charred oak wood, a bit of vanilla. More earthy, roasted aromas. You definitely smell the barrel treatment in this beer. The taste is sweet vanilla and chocolate cake. Strong charred woodland. Thick, rich toffee and burnt sugar. Bitter, slightly hot finish. Full body, though not smooth or supple. Overall, a really nice, full-bodied imperial stout. Tasty indeed. The finish is a bit ragged, which brings it down a notch. On this showing, I prefer the older Konjaks version.
