Rune (8006) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 28, 2013
Cask, shared with mr-h at Bow Bar. A rustic tint to a very dark coloured body. Low, beige layer at the surface. Mid-sweet, roasted malts on the nose. Malts of chocolate and caramel dominate the taste character with distant fruity hops beneath. Rounded, mild malt-fruity finish. Easy to drink and quite pleasing (pub crawl in Edinburgh 09.08.2013).

imdownthepub (10170) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2012
Cask conditioned at The Wenlock Arms, Hoxton, London. Dark brown with off white head. The roasted malt flavours are definitely there, maybe a little thin, but charred husk notes and chocolate, however; I didn’t get the hops very much, there wasn’t the prominence I was expecting. A touch disappointing.

Chelmsford Beer Festival. Clear dark brown beer. Residual pale tan head. Smooth palate, very low carbonation. A little bit of dark malt. Mild mild piney hops. Trace of red berry. Finishes neutral. Inoffensive but seems a bit tired.

Deep black in colour, looks like a porter or stout, taste is creamy and reminded me of Baileys, slight hop taste in there too
