On tap at Bishop’s Arms Järntorget, Göteborg. ABV was 9.0%. Served in "brandy" snifter. Pitch black colour, moderate tan head. Pleasant roasty aroma with notes of coffee, liquorice, chocolate and prunes. The flavour is distinctly roasty and moderately sweet with a certain warmth from the alcohol, notes of chocolate, port wine and prunes. Excellent beer!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
sample at the brewery, of the tank.
Shared with Gnoff.
One fresh from the tank, and a 14 months old bottle.
pours black with lasting mocha head and a frothy nice golden lacing.
Aroma had plenty of chocolate malts.
Taste, some light liquorice, dark malts giv this puppy an enormous roasted, chocolate palate with some faint coffee. Light hops.
**14 months old bottle; a little milder, with dark fruits/ caramel being more upfront and the chocolate/malts in the background.
Definitely my favourite by Ocean.

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.
