Handbottled (in late May, thanks Kike!). Quite much pitch black colour with minor head. Aroma is ashes, quite nice roasted coffee with some mild toffeeish and toasted maltyness as well. Flavour is the same along with mild liquorice and some slight wooden notes as well. The coffee gives a nice touch to it.

ekstedt (5441) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 4, 2010
Draught at teh Rover, Göteborg, Sweden. Black with a medium beige head. Chocolate aroma with greep pepper coffee notes, some dark berries. Dry with medium bitterness. The coffee does not bring anything poitive to this otherwise very good porter.

Egon (478) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - SEP 2, 2010
Draught. Black with brownish head. Ahh, a nice porter that is not at imperial alcohol levels. Good. Some coffee but not that much, sweet malt, dry roasted. Chocolate? Some licorice? Smooth. Dry coffee in after taste. Overall a nice porter that you can have one extra of without falling off the chair.

UPDATED: SEP 14, 2011 First rating
Draught at The Rover, Göteborg. On August 26, 2010
Black color, perhaps some tiny hints of dark brown in the very thinnest part of theglass bttom. Small tan head, though when asked to be served i a wine glass (galopp) maxed ou tto the fullest, so might have more head when poured in another way?
Sweet, roasted, fresh, malty taste. Coffee comes first in the aftertaste, but grows and then lingers a good while. Also a bit salty with just hints of licorice. Some grainy tones mixed with chocolate in the aftertaste as well. Easy to drink, but still packs some power to the taste, not thin at all.
Medium to smooth mouthfeel. Medium bitterness to the dry, and funny enough, salty side.
Sweet, butterscotch, roased malt, some alcohol scent.
A very nice porter once again from Ocean, though the coffee part is very toned down, almost to the point that one would think there is no added coffee, just the hints of coffee that sometimes come from malt composition. For my taste it’s good without overpoerig coffee, I like it!
I actually ordered a regular Ocean Göteborgsporter in an identical glass to have for comparison after I finished my rating.
The regular had a bigger head, smoother mouthfeel and taste. Also sweet scent with less butterscotch. Java has a more dry bitter finish. The difference in coffee is very small though.
8/3/9/4/17=4.1

Rerate
Cask at Ölrepubliken on September 14, 2011
Aged on cask for about 4 months as per info from the bar.
Black color, smallish light brown head. Slight bit acidic, sort of thin but that might be the low co2, malty, sweet, raissin, some coffee taste. Smooth mouthfeel, medium low bitterness. A bit vinous, also sweet, aftertaste. Sweet, malty, raissin scent.
7/4/7/4/15=3.7
