Rune (10927) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 17, 2015
330ml bottle as Christmas Velvet from Systembolaget Kiruna kindly brought to Tromsø by djoeye. Oily pour creating a coal black coloured body under a solid light brow head leaving rings of lace down the glassware. Roasted chocolate malty nose. Plain roasted malty taste, notes of grainy chocolate and liquorice that linger throughout. Smooth. A rather vivid stout, may a bit unvaried (Tromsø 09.01.2015).
