Hm, it seems I only use BA nowdays for rating Stormaktsporter; this time I had this edition on-tap at The Rover, Gothenburg. Here we go!
Looks absolutely fantastic in the glass; very dark brown, almost black with a perfect, remaining head.
Aroma is fantastic and amazing, no bottle I've had of this has smelled like this. Wonderful vinous, dried fruits, plums, chocolate, liquorice and honey. It's somewhat sweet (or at least it smells it going to be sweet).
Taste is dominated by a wonderful balanced sweetness with lots of honey (not over the top as you can think when you add like 30% honey), dried fruits, plums, dark chocolate, liquorice, molasses.
Then... to the mouthfeel. Wow. Wonderful smooth, extremely fullbodied. I've never tasted anything as filling as this. I love it more than anything else.
I'm so glad I had the chance to try this. Just incredible.

Tiny 2008 bottle split three ways. Thanks Don - without you I would never drink whales!
Appearance is dark brown with very little head. Consistent color throughout.
Smells of leather and some burnt grain. A little smoke and then some sweetness at the end.
Initial taste is dark fruit with some chocolate notes. Smoke comes through towards the end but very subtle and smooth. Taste lingers and expands leaving hints of dried cherry and more chocolate.
Mouthfeel is nice but nothing amazing. I wouldn't describe it as thin but I like a bit more viscosity from this style.
Really enjoyable beer. Don't share it with more than two friends - the small bottle split three ways was about right.
