500ml Bottle - Dark brown with some red tinges. Berries, blackcurrant, walnuts, marzipan, cocoa and dried fruit in the aroma. Fruity, roasted and hopppy taste with notes of cocoa, raisins, marzipan and Christmas cake. Very nice. olsvammel (7249) - Örebro, SWEDEN - DEC 19, 2010
Served on cask at Akkurat (Stockholm). It poured a hazy dark amber liquid with a brown tint and a medium sized dirty white head. Faint smell, but I spotted some fruits. Taste of sweet malts, some spices, fruits, burned toast. Fairly mild overall. Smooth mouthfeel with a medium thick body. Nice and easy to drink. Could have used a bit more flavour though. larsniclas (7111) - Billdal, SWEDEN - DEC 3, 2007

On tap. Aroma hoppy and sweet. Taste: a lot of hops but not a lot of other flavors. Hops dominating. _angst_ (4802) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 27, 2011

UPDATED: DEC 8, 2016 @ Eddan 16-12-3: Mycket liten doft och en ensformig smak av bränd kola. Mycket besk i eftersmaken. Ännu en blaskig öl från Ocean
