2013 & 2010 Gold Medal Winner at the Great American Beer Festival in the Foreign Stout category.

That time of year when the day seems to fade away. Drifting further into the darkness with each passing day. Volume 1 - Foreign Stout - Pours black with licorice, espresso bean, molasses, and black cardamom notes that give way to a feeling of self loathing, burnt opportunities and smoked relationships.

Feinschmecker (202) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 28, 2009
Fruity, bready and coffee aroma. Totally balck. medium on the palate and i a little oily and velvety. A little sweet. Hops are not that detectable, just faintly bitter on the finish. The malt flavor is perfect combination of coffee, cocoa, molasses and deep roasted malts. Unbelievable for the price. Great value.

Deep black with medium light brown head. Aroma is coffee and dark chocolate. Some phenolic licquer. Slightly hoppy nuts as well. Taste is very bitter with some chocolate sweetness and a nutty creamy texture. Heavy and nice. Smooth stuff.

Rune (11365) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 6, 2016
355ml bottle bought from djoeye. Pitch black in the glass, shiny naked surface, scattered lacing. Attractive aromas of dark chocolate and liquorice, moderately roasted. Confectionery flavours joined by liquorice and backed by dark fruits. Bittersweet malty ending, lingering for quite a while. Fine bodied. Good drinking on a Saturday eve. (Tromsø 03.09.2016).
