Started well with good caramel maltiness and restrained smoke. However, it petered out quickly, leaving me wanting more of the fullness and rich finish of a fine Scotch Ale.

Draught. This had lots of alcohol warmth but lacked the depth i expect of a beer with this gravity.

Thin head with a deep copper colored body. Nice smell of smoke and caramel. The smoke is great. Taste is malt sweetness, smoke and plum. Good balance. Smooth and soft texture. Low carbonation and medium body. Enjoyable.

GBBF. Cask. Hazy brown beer, residual white head. Light dry palate. Fairly rich malt with a tiny bit of toffee. Trace of minerals and some very subtle red fruits. A dry and slightly warming finish. Not bad but it lacks something...

Rune (8346) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 3, 2011
Had this one from gravicask at the second day of GBBF ’11, USA Cask ale Bar. Tiny beige layer to a chestnut coloured body. Mild aroma of dried fruits. Rather flavoursome with dried fruits, bready malts, stonefruits and a touch of berries. Dusty hops to the ending. Flat mouthfeel. Good (London, 03.08.2011).

Cask @ GBBF 2011. A hazy red/brown colored beer, with a white head. The aroma of fruits like cherries, with caramel malts. The taste is fruity with some bitter. It’s thin. The aftertaste is some sweet with a little bitter.
