olsvammel (6606) - 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.

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
