Palme (3533) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 12, 2013
0.5l bottle shared with The Tasting Crew. This is a clear nutty-brown one with a medium sized off-white top. It smells light peppery-spicy. Some cardboard, sweet caramel and yeast hints. Also traces of chocolate paper. It’s average carbonated and it has a thin watery mouthfeel. Hmm.. More cardboard in the taste. Lot’s of thin watery chocolate paper, some dusty hay, chestnuts and some light burned caramel. Quite a spicy peppery aftertaste on this puppy. Not a great or memorable beer imo, but it’s more than enough to call drinkable. 05.01.2012

olsvammel (3464) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 30, 2011
Sample at SMÖF 2011. It poured a clear dark brown liquid. Smell and taste of dark malts and chocolate. Nice and easy to drink, but I got a feeling I would grow tired if I had a full 50 cl glas.

Marsiblursi (3021) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 27, 2012
(Bottle) Pours orange brown with a creamy, pale nougat colored head. The aroma holds holds caramelly, nutty and cookie-like malt alongside spicy and floral hops. Undertones of wet stone, shellfish, sweet oranges and strawberry/wild strawberries. The flavour light sweet to dry, light to medium bitter and tiny acidic. Robust malty, mild hoppy and a little fruity. The mouthfeel is soft, creamy and clean with a light to medium carbonation. Well balanced finish of earthy/floral/spicy hops and nutty/earthy/light toffee/dry cookie-like malt. Medium bodied. Tasty and flavorful.

Bottle@bishops, järntorget. Darkish amber, clear. Very english strong bitter/esb aroma: Light nutty bready malts, herbal hops, some earthyness. Dry body, bready herby finish. Darker caramels, dry hazelnuts. Ok bitter. English seems to be ocean’s trademark.

hirigalzkar (2338) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 20, 2011
Draught @ Glenfiddich Warehouse. The use of the american cascade hops makes this (otherwise) classic English Strong Ale a bit different. Quite fresh and drinkable.
