Rune (10834) - Tromsø, NORWAY - APR 26, 2016
Cask, glass on a sampler tray at Helgi’s Bar. A few patches on the surface, rings of lace down the glass. Near-black body. Slightly roasted aroma of earthy malts and chocolate. Mid-sweet chocolate flavours, hints of earth and ash. Roasted, bittersweet endnotes. Medium bodied. Really a well made stout considering the low abv. (Kirkwall 15.04.2016).

Cask. Light chocolate and coffee with a prominent dark berry flavour. A bit on the thin side for a stout.

Craft Clerkenwell. Thanks to Leighton. Cask. Opaque dark brown beer, small pale tan head. Palate is light and semi dry, modest fine carbonation. Smooth dark malts, some roast bitterness and a little dark malt cream. Touch of dark fruits. Smooth finish. Okay but ultimately just another stout.
