yngwie (14342) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 22, 2009
On tap at Copenhagen Beerfestival. A nice-looking beer, the head of decent size and tan color, and the body black with a brownish hue. Peat, whiskey, some coffee and roasted malts, an earthy touch, and alcohol in the aroma. Just lovely, and the flavor slightly better. All things found in the aroma is present in the flavor too, and it has a sweetness that suits the beer very well. Warming, full-bodied and almost sticky in the mouth. Lasting sweet finish with alcohol and roasted malts. Delightful. The barrelling did really good it seems. (090515)

Smoke, wood and roastedness blend well in. Also licorice, faint tar and some dark fruits. Full-bodied. Complex, perfectly balanced and well-crafted.

On tap. Pours a completely opaque black with a small beige head. Aroma of hard roasted malt and tar. Quite full-bodied with sweetish hard roasted malt, bitter chocolate, vanilla and a piquante smoky edge from the Bruichladdich Barrel. Discreet bitterness. Very well balanced. 150509

Rune (8584) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 1, 2009
Beige head resting on top of a devil-black body. Smoked aroma with chocolate beneath. Smoked oak flavour added by ingredients like liquorice, cocoa and chocolate followed by lingering bitter endnotes. A bit sweet, but very good indeed (CBF, 15.05.2009).
