Rune (7355) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 1, 2008
Black as pitch. Aroma of smoky malts leading to a more sweet, malty flavour supported by a touch of anise. Smooth on the swallow. Rather diluted in the mouth (Cask, third pint at GBBF, 05.08.2008).

A Mes rate: Gravicask at GBBF.
Black brown colour, not much going on in the head department. Nice coffee and chocolate with some slight but manageable diacetyl. Odd note of shaving cream and plastic in the finish. So so.

Ethereal (2410) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 9, 2008
Cask at GBBF 08. Black with a slight chocolate aroma. Easy palate, perhaps a little light. Closer to a porter or even a mild than a stout.

Cask@GBBF08. Very black colour, small brown head, that lasts for quite a bit. Aroma is smoke, fudge, caramel malts as well as some licorice. Flavour is the same along with sweet fruits. Ends in a quite fruity/wooden bitterness.
