Short beige head. Light yellow berries aroma. Dark opaque copper body. Very little hop or malt in the taste, but a nice balance with light bitterness and average warmth. Pleasant after all. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Brunlig med lite skum. Aroma av malt, rosiner og annen tørket frukt, gjær og kanskje litt karamell? Smaken er søtlig malt og så mildt bitter, med innslag av tørket frukt, karamell og alkohol. Medium/tykk konsistens. Ok mild bitterhet i ettersmaken.

Medium beige head. Lovely deep reddish amber body with carbonation. Sugary raisiny caramelly aroma with earthy fruity notes. Dry-sweet earthy roasty papery taste with caramelly raisiny notes. Mid-to-full body. Dry-sweet soy sauce and raisins aftertaste with earthy spicy buttery notes. Very nice, and quite unusual. (0.33l bottle, wine monopoly.)

Rune (8000) - Tromsø, NORWAY - APR 17, 2011
It’s still winter with a lot of snow in the extreme north where I live, so a warming winter beer seems just appropriate on a Saturday eve. 330ml bottle, bb.31.09.15, bought at Vinmonopolet Oslo City. Pours a cloudy, apricot coloured body topped by firm amount of beige, foam that stays well and leaves fragile lacing at the glassware. Smell of sweet malts and dried fruits. Plums and raisin in flavour together with earthy malts followed by a ending containing lighter notes of yeasty fruitiness along with alcohol warmth. Well bodied, but aroma and flavour feels rather subdued (Tromsø, 16.04.2011).

berlinoise2go (608) - NORWAY - APR 25, 2011
Bottle (33cl) from Vinmonopolet (Storo), Oslo. Clear, reddish golden colour. Finger-thick light beige head, decent retention, settles as a thin ring. Aroma is fairly closed; needs quite a warming-up to reveal a nice, woody and sweet sherry-like aroma with toffee, dried fruit (raisins) and alcohol. Medium body, soft/average carbonation. Taste is subtle/restrained, but well-balanced with mild acidity and bitterness on a sweet malty base. Aftertaste is relatively dry and woody. OK brew, but had expected a more powerful aroma.

Dark amber color; medium sized compact head. Some malt aroma, with light chocolate and yeast. Medium bodied, the mouthfeel is quite round; caramel flavor, with light chocolate and traces of liquorice; the bitterness is quite high, although unnoticed. Pleasant.
