Gravity at Cambridge Beer Festival 2010. Slightly red-black with a short head. Almost red wine-like grape scent. Nice mouthfeel. Sweet with some bitterness in there too. In the mouth, roasted nuts, vegetables and some liquorice. A bit thin.

This bottle made a suprise showing at my Imperial Stout tasting. Not quite in category, but a good local brew to start the night off. Pours black with ruby tints and little head. Nose is coffee and roast malt. Thin in the mouth but with a nice coffee character on the swallow. Very drinkable.

Rune (11352) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 17, 2009
I finished off my drinking sessions at GBBF 09 with two ales from the Mid East England Bar. The cask version of this one was dark as the polar night (excluding the Northern Lights) and got a naked surface. Smell of different kinds of dark malts added by weak moments of roastiness. Bready malts with bitter coffee malts in flavour blended with anise sweetness. Medium bodied. A good mild with porter qualities (Earls Court, 07.08.2009).

More than a mild it tasted to me like a combination of stout an porter but it was extremelly good.

sm89walt (1972) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 29, 2009
Cask - The Duke of Wellington, Norwich. Practically pitch black with perhaps and slight brown edging and a fine, loose bubbly tan head on top. Dark, fruity malts, coffee and roasted malts on the nose. Roasty, chocolatey coffee malt flavours, some liquorice on the finish. A dry end, oily palate texture and a medium length finish.
