Rune (8047) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 9, 2008
A very lively bottle bought at a Real Food store in Edinburgh. Light-brown, dense head over a jet black body with a russet tint. Firm smell of coffee and chocolate. Taste of sweet dark malts, slightly roasted and spiced. Nuts and bitter dark chocolate towards the ending. A bit too light in the mouth [hotel room, 24.10.2008].

Bottle, 4.6%. OK fruity aroma. Mildly roasted, hint of coffee. Seemingly clear almost black colour. The flavour is nicely roasted, quite mild. Mild fresh coffee notes, freshly brewed.

This was one of the first black isle beers that I tried and I was not impressed. The beer poured like a pint of cola; black and no head. The aromas were hints of nuts, roasted malts and coffee; not too bad. However the taste was awful: cold coffee and not much else. It was also very thin bodied for a porter, a very watery mouthfeel. I gave this to my mate after a couple of mouthfuls and he managed the same amount. We ended up pouring the rest down the sink. Maybe I have been unlucky, but I have tried two other bottles since my original tasting and it resulted in the same effect. A very poor, watery porter that has a taste closer to frapaccino than a beer.

Bottle, many thanks to Craig cgarvie for this one, cheers Craig. Poured black with a small white bubbly head. Some sourness and suphurous notes and even some metallic thing going on there, wondering whether this was infected as it was just well, sour really, also appley fairly sure this was a bad un as a porter that tastes more like cider can’t be right can it? I will rate this again if ever I see it and note this rating certainly isn’t a dig at the brewery.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2007
A Mes rate: Bottle at The 78. Not bad for an organic. Served way too cold so I had an annoying wait until I could rate it. Black with a slight tan head. Straight forward porter with some decent inky and rubbery notes. Coffee notes come through as it warms. Not really assertive enough however. Slightly sticky in the palate but not bad overall.

A decent porter. This one should have been filtered, though. The yeasty flavor did not mix too well with the roasted malt of the porter. Not watery.
