Bottle. 2006. Dark black color with a average, frothy to creamy, excellent lacing, fully lasting, brown head. Aroma is moderate malty, dark chocolate, licorice, light vanilla, amazing look and smell. Flavor is just amazing, very complex and intensive, with a very good balance, moderate sweet and biiter long duration. Body is full, texture is creamy, carbonation is lively to soft. Very very nice beer ;o))

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: APR 9, 2010 CBF07 sample poured by omhper from a bottle given by the brewer himself at the RB table. I’m extremely thankful for having had a chance to taste this. I had to go outside into the sunshine to enjoy this. By incident (well...) this was my tasting number 200 at CBF07. I had 7 more tastings after this, but it took me an hour to start sampling again. This beer will however conclude my RB postings from the CBF07. Ah well the beer :) : From 25 cL bottle. Pours completely black with thick brown head, very creamy. Aroma of coffee, chocolate and slight tobacco. A vague dried fruity note too. Flavour is first chocolate, then toffee sweet and this becomes a strong liqourice dominans. A soft bitterness lingering into the finish. Clear presence of alcohol, but only reasonable. It does give the beer an initial edge. Very thick, very fullbodied.10-5-9-5-18

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
[To celebrate my rating number 7500 - I choose the present number one beer, which I sampled at the RBESG 2006] A pitch black beer with a thick brown head. The aroma is very powerful with notes of malt, alcohol, chocolate, and over ripe fruits. The flavor is extremely sweet malty with lots of chocolate - bitter dessert chocolate that is, as well as notes of roasted malt, alcohol, and wood, also light notes of whiskey mixes in. The alcohol burns slightly in the throat. Nice one.

4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottled. Oh my. If the Stormaktsporter was fabulous so is this. Pitch black colour and nice brown head, which leaves a bit lace. Aroma is so full of everything, roast, plum, raisins, licorace, some coffee and caramel. Also dark fruits. Flavour contains the same, and along to that a nice touch of wet burnt oak. This is totally awesome in any way. Still, I won’t give a 5.0, since I might find some better beer, but this is among the best there is!

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2009 (Bottle 25 cl) Pours completely black and opaque with a handsome, dense light brown head. Complex, vinous aroma with sweetish, roasted malts. Very full body with a shipload of roasted malt and notes of dried and overripe fruits. And then oak of course. Discreet bitterness with the alcohol shining through. Extemely complex and pleasant from start to finish. 260806

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JAN 29, 2007 Re-rate bottled at Akkurat and at SMÖF. The flavours are now more mature and balanced. The silkyness of teh regular Stormaktsporter now combines well with all the attractive barrel induced flavours. It has grown one step further on bottles.
[Draught at Oliver Twist, Stockholm] Intransparently black, small pale brown head. Rich aroma of licorice and wood. Sweet with full body and concentrated flavour of coffee, tar, oak and whiskey. Salty finish with vanilla and chocolate as well as a fair amount of bitterness. The barrel character does not overpower the other flavours, making it more balanced than many other barrel aged beers.

2007 Edition - On tap at Borefts I. Opaque black stout - very thick milk chocolate coloured head. Nose of chocolate and oak. Very soft palate due largely to the thick head! Rich sweet oaky malt. A little minerals. Traces of milk chocolate. Delicious and not over hyped - really deserves it’s reputation.
2008 Edition. Opaque black beer. Softish palate. Rich malt with light chocolate. Oaky sweetness. A real treat but edged out here by the 2007 Edition
