[2178-20090520] Tap. Mild chocolate malt roast aroma has some peas thrown in. Black body with a thick long-lasting creamy tan head. Roasted malt grains flavour has some dry bitter notes throughout. Full body is a little thin. Average, could hold more bite.

jercraigs (7812) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 29, 2009
2009-05-20. Picture perfect black with a rich creamy brown head, leaves similar lacing on the glass. Initial sip of non descript sweet dark malt is quickly overtaken by a grainy dry roasty bitterness, brief odd note in the finish has a mineral touch with the roast. Aroma is milder than expected, slow building dry roast, notes of coffee and mocha akin to a pile of roast barley and freshly ground dark malts. (6+) Smooth average palate is light for my tastes but is in keeping with Irish examples of the style. On tap at Franciscan Well, Cork

Rune (8044) - 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).
