A reddish brown coloured beer with a thick off white head. A light malty and bready aroma. Dry mouthfeel. A dry malty taste, nutty and a hint of burnt sugar. There is a bitter hop flavour in the background. The finish is well balanced between dry malt and bitter hop.

Bottle. Poured into the 50cl Leffe goblet .. Good ass brown looking beer with robust ass cream. Smells skunky ,so fuck wasting my time talking about it . On the palate everything is dictated to by pasteurised vibes. Malt tang giving brown bread . caramel ,some dried fruit . Kida earty hops and wheat . A bit of roasted malt giving chocolate bitterness .some good texture but skunky vibes hold this back.

AshtonMcCobb (5382) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 1, 2014
Bottle from the Spar. Appearance - dark amber with some red chinks. Nicely proportioned head. Nose - honeycomb some smoke and some chocolate biscuit. Taste - toffee and burnt biscuit. Palate - medium bodied with a crunchy texture and a fairly good finish. Overall - quite gnarly but good complexity.

Rune (11365) - TromsÝ, NORWAY - AUG 1, 2014
500ml bottle from a local Tesco store. Lasting, frothy beige head leaving spotty lacing to the glassware. Clear dark brown body colour. Malt driven aromas, mid-sweet. Dark malty flavours, hints of liquorice, caramel, and ash. Mild roasted bitterness to a prolonged ending. Fine bodied. Nice, a bit unvaried though (hotel room at Leeds University Campus 08.07.2014).

Bottle shared with McTapps. Fine one with some chocolate, a bit of straw, some hops and high drinkability. Classic one to enjoy.
