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!

Flaska på SMÖF 2013. Äntligen. En lång väntan är över. Nog lever denna raritet upp till sin hype. Naturligtvi omöjligt med en objektiv rate på en så blytung legend. --------&# 2007: Balanserad med tydliga men samtidigt lagom toner av bourbon. Varm bouquet. Smak av kaffe, och cholkad. Rund och len. Underbar. Världsklass. --------&# 2009: Fantastiskt mäktig. Härligt balanserad. Slutar analysera och bara njuter...

Great beer. Every one should have one of those! Smooth and complex with vanilla and heavy malted body. Tried 2007 and 2009 but still got one bottle from 2006. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sample at smöf 2013, 2007 edition. Sweet aroma of raisins, oak, chocolate, warm alcohols, dark bread and dark fruits, some nuttiness. Taste is like aroma but with a soft vanilla tone and a more distinct oak character. Long sweet and dry aftertaste of dry raisins and chocolate, moderate bitterness.

(2007) Black liquid, beige head. Rich chocolate and porter aroma. Sweet honey flavor with some roasted bitterness. Low carbonation, smooth mouthfeel. Pretty awesome, but you already knew that.

Some kind of celebration punching my 4K rating at RateBeer. I’m not really that concerned with numbers but sometimes it could be fun to do something extra about millstones anyway. The truth is I’m such a lacy rater so barely 50 % of my notes end up here. The big advance of this is the fact that it’s quite easy to grab something interesting from my notes and make it my “celebration”. So what could be more appropriate than world greatest Imperial Stout. I’m lucky to have sampled this by several occasions, but this 2007 vintage where pulled out of my cellar late one evening after a great beer tasting session. Everyone had gone home and I just felt for splitting this bottle with my beer buddy Gunnfryd. The big question where if it still was able to kick balls after a set of other superb ales (lots of good memories from those days my buddies cared to bring fine beers at our beer evenings). Back to the beer. Pours pitch black with a small but nice, dense brown head. Body feels thick and heavy with a appropriate moderate level of carbonation. A sight for sore eyes. Strong aroma of everything dark, like dark, roasted malt, dark fruit, dark chocolate with leather, wood and smooth, refined alcohol. Flavor is sweet but in perfect balance with the bitterness and alcohol. Everything from the aroma is present in such a perfect and smooth combination. The body feels perfect and it has a really long aftertaste, still soft as silk, rich malt, pleasant wood and warming alcohol. Pure pleasure.
