COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"Garún is named for the strong and brave heroine of one of Iceland’s most popular folktales "The deacon of Dark River (Myrká)." A tale of ghosts, undying love, and life triumphing over death told against the backdrop of elements essential to Iceland’s character: ice, snow, and flooding waters whirling dark and mysterious. The same elements that inspire this rich, intense, bold and swirlingly varied Icelandic stout. Garún is a dark aura of intense richness and haunting aroma with notes of chocolate, licorice and coffee. Skál!"

33cl bottle from Capitol Beer & Tap Room. Pours near black with a thick tan head and a treacle aroma. There is a complex flavor that includes chocolate, anise and coffee. A very intense tasty brew that finishes dry and bitter.

FatPhil (9288) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 30, 2014
330ml bottle beer (drink Shop, Tallinn)
Sweetish roast, not as expressive as the sip I had a few nights ago, which was chocolatier. Sweet roasty body, but some massive alcohol hit. Every sip is more alcoholic than the last, which is not a good thing. Sugary, and quite pleasant if it wasn’t for the booze. Brewed too strong, a design flaw, fail.
