""""For 30 days this honey-hued beer sleeps in hand selected oak barrels, locked inside a bonded warehouse, gradually assimilating the subtle flavours that reside in the wood. Barrels are then emptied and maturation continues for a further 47 days in a marrying tun where these natural flavours infuse and fall into perfect balance. This 77-day process is unique and produces a delicious, refreshing beer: Aromas of vanilla and toffee, hints of citrus, with a malty, lightly oaked,palate. Deftly balanced and light in texture, soothing and warming in the finish.""""

Rune (9661) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 19, 2008
330ml bottle at Le Mirage in Tromsø. Pours a dark amber body with a slowly fading, off-white foamy head. Aroma in the direction of dark honeyed oak. Malty taste mixed with vanilla and wood. Low, but noticeable bitterness to the finish. Well bodied. Not exactly the perfect drink to meat (19.07.2008).

a right little hopper. Ginger beerish, or marzipan. Also reminds me of fried pre-cooked bangers with tomato tomato sause. A sweet edge is apparent

Pinball (11705) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 14, 2008
normally i don’t like aged beer, or beer with cognac flavor. This one is different, very enjoyable beer, drinkable, notes of honey and whiskey, buttersmooth. enough bitterness to balance the sweetness. i could buy this again for sure.

Bottle; poured a clear, dark orange with a smallish white head. Aroma of honey, caramel, whiskey and wood; very sweet. Flavor dominated by sweet, buttery malt and whiskey. Toasted biscuit lingers for awhile on the palate. Was really hoping to like this more, but I don’t think it worked all that well. I think I’m not a big fan of the butteriness. Overall it was a bit messy.

THOUGHTS: I had been wanting to try this one for a while. Hid alcohol well until it hit the belly and then it was pleasantly warming. A really nice surprise since I’ve never really heard anyone talk about this one. I think it was the first light oak aged beer I’ve ever had. It was much more subtle than I thought it was going to be, but way more complex at the same time. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a clear, medium orangey amber with nice carbonation and a small to average, off-white head that mostly diminished except for right around the edges of the glass and left fair to good lacing. The aroma was great, but a little weak. There was moderate caramel malt, oak, vanilla and slight citrus. The initial flavor was lightly sweet and moderately acidic; while the finish was moderately sweet, light to moderately acidic, lightly bitter and slightly sour with an average to long duration. The light to medium body was dry with lightly fizzy carbonation and a light alcoholic finish.

the beer that opened my door! I had no idea beer could have so much flavour, look so bueatiful, smell so interesting. I take it out of the fridge and just leave it in front of me for a little while and I get more excited to pour it by the minnute. pours crystal clear and golden honey colour. head is light gold, two inches and then fades. Taste and smell are a little vanilla, not quite sweet, and keeps you interested as it warms. I enjoy it slowly to the last drop. Actually I cherish it, one bottle when I am lucky to have some quiet time to myself. My favourite but I am tasting others to see what the beer world has to offer.

Bottle - LCBO Comes in an interesting bottle, pours a honey brown colour with a very small white head. Smells strongly of hops and malt. Very strong taste, a hoppy bite with a nice toffee finish. Very good beer to relax with.
