Ljunkan (530) - NORWAY - APR 26, 2009
On tap at Bishops Arms, Järntorget, Göteborg. Pours a black color with a nice lightbrown head. Aroma of dark chocolate, coffee and liquorice. Flavour is lightly sweet, there’s roasted malt, coffee, dark chocolate, liquorice and some light smokiness. Mediumbodied mouthfeel (a bit thin for the style maybe), but overall nicely smooth. Best beer I’ve tried from Ocean - definitely a good one!

Draught at Stockholm Beer Festival 2008. Black color with small head. Coffee, licorice, leather, and charcoal in the aroma. Thick and chewy palate with flavors of licorice, coffee, charcoal. Sweetish, like a tropical stout. Very fresh. I wish this had more bitterness.
