3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
September 8, 2014 - at Craft Clapham - on draught. Deep clear ruby-black with a lasting creamy beige-tan head. Aroma is lush - malty, muted hop bitterness, some plum and coffee - low level but very nice. Taste - hops in background, mostly fruit, roast and coffee, restrained coffee. Solid chewy body, mild carbonation, quickish finish, a little treacle in the aftertaste, definitely coffee - lovely beer.

Keg @ Grove Huddersfield. Valravn is probably Wild Raven in Vikingr speak.
I’d rather give some Vikingr Valravn as a ’don’t chop my head off with your sword called Bastardheadcutter’ offering rather than the ’shit run away’ Wild Raven. Faintly aged tasted with more of a salty shanty seaside licorice flavour. Almost Mikkellerish. The BIPA taste is there - I suggest oak ageing for this one to make magic beer.

Tap @ the Taphouse Sydney. Black with small tan head. Understated, yet complex earthy hop aromas with a roasted malt edge. Enjoyable English hop flavours that are not too bitter, but the alcohol is obvious towards the end of the palate, which detracts.

Keg, Craft Clapham, London, Saturday 4th October 2014. Very dark brown with tiny bubbled film across top, soft mouthfeel. Some pine resin and a little dark treacle but hoppiness wins out, good balance and exceptionally easy drinking for the strength. Really like this. A8 A4 T9 P4 Ov17 4.2

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Haandfest 2014. This is one of those really deep and dark almost cola colored beers with a really islandy, med sized and lacing top. Roasted nose with coffee and some old chocolate. A little bit of cardboard also detected. Hard to describe what this smells like but its actually not all that bad. A good carbonation level left here in a light oily mouthfeel. It has some chocolaty flavors, and it’s definitely well hopped. Biscuits and a lingering vanilla-ish tail. Good stuff. 24.05.2014
