Sigmund (5104) - Tau, NORWAY - JUL 7, 2009
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!

LoFi (1592) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 8, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 24, 2010 Draught. Pitch black with a small beige head. Roasted aroma, coffee, bitter chocolate, berries, licorice and smoke. Very nice!
Batch #1 (2008) tasted Oct. 2010:
Black with a porous, light brown head, something about it reminds me of Coca-Cola. Aroma: sweet, chocolate, sweet licorice. Taste: chocolate, licorice, acidic, some saltiness, berries, wine gums. Really nice flavours, but the mouthfeel was a bit disappointing, way too little carbonation.
Oak chip cask:
Black with a porous brown head. Aroma: red wine, wood. Taste: some alcohol, red wine or glögg, spices, plus the regular flavours. Interesting, but I preper the regular one.

Bottle at home. A porter right up my alley! Wonderful gentle touch of coffee and chocolate with a nice cream and hints of dried fruits and some licorice. The 9% ABV is very well hidden.

sebletitje (6678) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUN 29, 2009
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.

From tap. Pours dark brown to black with a lacing tan head. Aroma is dense liqourice and roastedmalt aroma with a mild acidic touch. Sweet initial flavoured with distinct berry fruity base flavour slowly showing some acidity and annis seed. Lingering liqourice and mild herbal touch into the far finish. Nice one.
