Rune (8831) - Tromsų, - SEP 19, 2011
330ml bottle, 2010, brought back to the true north from Vinmonopolet Vika in Oslo. Cool bottle logo and nice bottle design, including the black neck. Pours a dense, tan-coloured foamy head, slowly fading over a devil-black body. Church windows to the glassware. Semi-sweet nose of cocoa added by a bite of lactose. Cocoa-chocolate taste supported by herbal hops and roastiness. Lingering bittersweet ending of dark fruits. Well balanced and well bodied. Pleasurable brew (Session with Finn, Skibotn 16.09.2011).

Kauge (536) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 31, 2015
Tap at Tallinn Craft Beer Weekend 2015. Looks like a Stout, feels like a Stout, but doesn’t taste or smell like a Stout. Extremely woody and sour on the nose, with roasted and chocolate notes in its taste. Not much if any alcohol detectable. Not sure why it’s an Imperial. A strange brew but not bad. I guess it’s true to the brewer’s style. Would not mind trying it again.

Black beer, tan head. Nose is chocolate, roast, vanilla notes, mild wood. Flavor is roasty, sour notes, malt, weird fruit notes. Nose is nice, but the flavor lets it down.

Beermack (701) - Dublin, IRELAND - SEP 4, 2014
Bottle. Black, no head, viscous. Nose is leather, coffee and dark berries on the nose, some oak. Big coffee and blackberry hit in the taste, light oak, slight sourness - almost citric - more dark fruit, figs, plums, light bacon and smoke. More leather. Coffee lingers, as does the light smoke and some dark choc towards the end. Medium body, pretty decently drinkable. Good flavour profile, with an interesting bite and oakiness.
