Mycket kaffe och mycket choklad, nästan lite tjärna också. Man finner en del lakrits. Ganska trevlig öl som man borde prova om man har vägarna förbi.

Mad_Ferret (649) - SWEDEN - APR 24, 2011
UPDATED: APR 26, 2011 Black with a small brown shortlived head. Not much lacings. Think i got a sloppy pour. Aroma is burnt, chocolate, some berries. Taste is moderately sweet and burnt with a nice chocolate note which saves it from becoming too dull with its salty herby licorice notes. Also a bit vinous with berries and fruit. Medium to full body. Small "mushy" bubbles. Pretty good, but i got a bit bored with it towards the end.

On tap at Bishops Arms Vasagatan, Stockholm in January 2011. Black with a small tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, licorice, some coffee and notes of port wine. The same in the pleasant taste. The best beer from Oceanbryggeriet that I have tried.

Marko (3933) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 23, 2010
Draught at the Järntorget BA. Poured a pitch black body with a creamy tan head, quite impressive. The nose followed suit, lovely malty chocolatey-coffeeish soft sweet and creamy is what I noted down and now that I got a connection here, I confirm online. The taste, however, doesn’t follow suit because it would probably be far better rated if it did. It’s a bit light, mixing some sweetish malt with nice roasty notes and what one can only hope is acidity coming from the hops and not some random fault. It ends up being a little soapy, dry, acidic and messy, but ok in some way nonetheless. I should try their regular porter to compare, this is good enough already. If only for the before-tasting presentation.
