Rake. Clear dark brown beer, tidy pale tan head. Smooth palate, soft and dry. Fine carbonation. Mildly smoky and roasty dark malt. The chocolate is very mild and partially hides even milder red fruits. Soft finish with more mild roast malt. Not bad.

Bottle shared at The Kernel, London thanks to Thomas. Pours brown with a creamy, beige foam head. Dry and chalky cocoa character, moderately. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Drinks like a lower ABV beer than it is. Dry finish with lots of dusty cocoa. Not bad.

Rune (8582) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 7, 2012
Keg, half-pint in perfect condition at Craft Beer Co in Islington. Patchy surface, spotty lacing and a tan-coloured head. Dark grainy chocolate to the nose. Cocoa powder to the taste buds, small bite of lactose to it, finish off with roasted, bitter chocolate malt. Well balanced. Likable (London, 26.11.2012).

jmgreenuk (5132) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JAN 18, 2013
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Poured a dark mahogany colour with a very slight reddish hue. The tan head was quite frothy initially, but didn’t last for long. The aroma was unsurprisingly mainly of chocolate! When I bought this bottle, I must admit I was a little worried by the label, as it gave the impression that this beer was a chocolate lovers dream, but thankfully the chocolate was there in the flavour, but it wasn’t dominant in any way. I’ve had chocolate beers in Belgium before and they are uber sickly. This was perfect. The dry hoppy pepperness went well with subtle notes from the chocolate to deliver a superb and very tasty ale. Another classic from Wales!

Keg @ Tap East. Reddish brown color with a tiny tan head. The nose is of light chocolate truffles and brown sugar, some german chocolate cake sweetness. The aroma’s fairly light, and doesn’t leap out at you. The taste is bitter chocolates with an edge of tobacco leaf, some cocoa powder and smooth kopi luwak-style coffee notes. Light bouncy toffee malt presence. The finish is a bit thin and watery. Medium body, soft carbonation. Overall, fairly decent! It’s nice to see another Welsh brewery raising their game.
