oh6gdx (20313) - Vasa, FINLAND - NOV 3, 2012
Cask@Akkurat (old backlog). Reddish brown colour with a mediumsized beige foamy head that leaves some lace. Aroma is bready and caramel malty with some slight toasted and coffeeish notes along with some ripe fruits, raisins and plum. Flavour is rather similar with some slight spicyness (yeastyness?) to it as well. would probably suit the Xmas food table rather well.

fiulijn (14513) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 20, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 17, 2009 2009-12-01, draught at Nya Tröls, Malmö, 8-4-6-3-13=34
Hazy amber color. It has a very nice hop aroma, a bit fruity, and some caramel. The mouthfeel is drier than I would like, dry caramel flavor, a bit dusty, but this is expected from Ocean.

2007-12-13, cask conditioned at Bishop’s Arms, Malmö, 6-3-7-3-13=32
Dark brown color with ruby shades. The aroma, initially fresh, turns into some simple caramel. Easily drinkable, with a down-to-earth caramel flavor, light chocolate and toffee, medium body strenght, quite strong ending bitterness, with roasted malt too. Plain.
