This is a tasty brew. It’s a bock with a nice flavor and notes of malt and caramel. The foundations for this Easter Brew was laid mid January, where the malts were mixed. The pronounced caramel flavor comes from the brewing on open fire, something only few brewers are able to do. It has been stored for 2 months.

Bottle. A clear, copper beer topped by a small, beige head. Slightly sourish on the nose, with caramel and a fruity touch. Caramel, alcohol and some dried fruits in the flavor, low on bitterness. Caramel and some alcohol in the finish, a little bitterness too. Not an impressive beer at all. Still, quite drinkable. 100522

Rune (9661) - Tromsø, NORWAY - APR 5, 2010
500ml bottle, 7.5% ABV, bought at Barley Wine in Copenhagen and shared with Finn Arvid at an Easter dinner. Red-brown or cognac-like body colour. Decent off-white head, slowly fading. Sweet caramel malts to the nose backed by a spicy touch. Fragrant malty profile in flavour joined by a noticeable touch of cinnamon, dark fruits, prunes and a little too much of candy sweetness. Masked alcohol. Medium bodied. Tasty, however, just a bit too sweet (Tromsø, 04.04.2010).

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - JUL 14, 2009
Bottle, thanks to oh6gdx (Patrik) for sharing. Lovely deep copper color, and mainly flat. Excellent liquid bread aroma with a hint of sourness. Flavors are liquid bread. Palate is thick, viscous. Almost too sweet but is not, has a fruity body and remains mostly bready in character.
