Many thanks to Nisse666 for this bottle! Dry roasted beginning. The beer is smooth with hints of smoke. Nice dry body, fresh and intense round with lots of roasted malts. Dry body, still highly drinkable, nice and subtle sweetness. The malt there is intense roasted, nice aroma of burned grain, roasted hazelnuts or dry caramel. Fascinating smooth in the aftertaste, not sticky, moderate bitter. Great stuff!

Bottle share at LKS Towers as ’Ocean Järntorgets Arbetarporter’, 9.0%, many thanks to Leighton for this one. Opaque black, small foamy brown head. Aroma is booze, chocolate, sharp woody notes. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is molasses, booze, chocolate, light varnish, dry and boozy. Quite tasty but a bit harsh considering the restrained ABV for style.

When pouring the beer, it has a black-brown color. Beige / brown foam with large bubbles. The foam disappeared at a leisurely pace, leaving thin trails. The scent has a roasted sweet malt tonnes. Complex flavors of coffee and dark chocolate. Orange and Clove. But can also find some cherries and thin vanilla. Very big in fragrance. The taste has a sweet roasted malt. Great flavors of roasted coffee and dark chocolate. Also little orange and cloves. But even some cherries and vanilla thin toward the end. Great flavors sitting in and marries perfectly. Medium to full body. Lightweight carbon dioxide, with small bubbles. A perfect match was guaranteed to bitterness. A really good balanced Porter / Stout.

Bottleshare at Mr Smith’s pad. Thanks to Leighton. Opaque dark brown - black beer, tidy pale head. Palate is smooth, fairly dry and has modest fine carbonation. Tangy dark malts, licorice streaked. Some alcohol spice. Light semi dry finish. A bit simple and with obvious alcohol.

Bottle shared in London - I bought this one...somewhere...then aged it a few years. Pours deep black with a creamy, beige head. The nose holds well roasted malts, cocoa, dark fruits, raisins. Medium to big sweet flavour, with nicely rounded chocolate character, scorched earth, burnt marshmallow, toffee. Medium to full bodied with average carbonation. Lightly warming finish, more cocoa, ripe fruits, berries, raisins. Really nicely rounded. Good depth. Great stuff.
