17.04.2014, 0,25l bottle @ Akkurat Bar & Restaurant:
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.

lillunken (61) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAY 15, 2015
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!

Small bottle @ Akkurat in Stockholm

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 (882) - 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.

Bottle (250 ml) @ Akkurat. Black with reddish reflects and a small fully lasting beige head. Aroma is incredible... super complex without being too heavy, cognac is present for sure along rich dark chocolate, molasses, roasted malt and nice fruitiness. Taste is a little less spectacular, but still world-class with cognac (not overpowering), dark chocolate, roasted malt, molasses and a nice mild lingering fruity finish. Full bodied, but not too heavy. Moderate carbonation. Wow! This one is really impressive. More complex than most of the very high abv RIS while being less than 10 % abv. The balance is nearly perfect. Great RIS!
