Rune (8189) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 24, 2012
330ml bottle picked up at Vinmonopolet Vika in Oslo a few months ago. Fawn-coloured head leaving fragile lacing down the glass. Deep, dark ruby coloured body. Mid-sweet aroma of plums and earthy malts. Well blended jam-like taste with dried fruits and malt fruity bitterness towards a long-lived ending. Integrated alcohol. Full bodied. Perfect as a late night sipper (Tromsø, 20.10.2012).

JorisPPattyn (7973) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - FEB 3, 2012
Yellow-beige small head over dark red-amber ale. Cookies, very demure,... a shy Emelisse? Quite bitter, tannine-rich; bitter cake and resiny. Finishes on a rather harsher bitterness, severe. Sliick, oily to nearly sticky MF, but snuzzling up to one. Less intense than expected. Thanks to Kees!
