Bottle. Let me start by saying that I’m not a big fan of spiced beers. Nonetheless this beer impressed me. It starts of with a tan head with good retention laying on top of a dark brown beer with a red hue. Nose is subtly spicy and a little sour and reminds me of worcestershire sauce. The flavor begins mildly roasted bitter going into fruitiness ending in a long and dry finish. A beer that is wonderfully balanced between an almost stout like roastiness and subtle spicing. Soft carbonation and easy mouth feel makes this an easy drinking experience. Well done.

Rune (8928) - Tromsø, NORWAY - APR 9, 2015
500ml bottle provided by djoeye. Good looking with a fluffy light brown coloured head resting over clear mahogany coloured body. Dark malty aromas with hints of dark spices. Slightly smoked dark malts to the taste buds, hints of coffee and anise. Mid-sweet. Well bodied. Fits the winter season (shared with Finn at his place in Tromsø 08.04.2015).

Flaske 500ml spandert av Rune og delt med ham på Rundvannet 8 Apr 15. Veldig mørk brun. Høyt, litt farget skum. God krydderaroma. Smaken ulike krydder. Ingefær mest framtredende. Lite variert - men vinterkos.

Sparf (160) - Östersund, SWEDEN - APR 6, 2015
Årgång 2013. Milt rökig doft med inslag av såväl skinka som rågsiktsbröd och mogen banan. Drar även åt fuktig källare. Mörkt kastanjebrun brygd med dragning åt tegel. Skummet är tätt men med kort halveringstid. Halvsöt, tunn, maltig smak med en något kärv syra och fatton. Kryddiga inslag och aning mörka frukter. Röken återkommer samt en rostad eftersmak med liten beska. Vattnig och halvfyllig kropp. Inte så mycket men tillräcklig kolsyra.

Flaska från SB. Ser ut som coca cola. Dofter av julkryddor och torkad frukt. Fin kryddig sötma med en skön maltbas. God! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

50 cl systembolaget. En mycket bra julöl tog ett tag att upptäcka då jag snöat in på mera humlestarka smaker på sista tiden.

UPDATED: FEB 24, 2015 Heavy and fragrant aroma. The taste, however, is a little thin, unfortunately.
