Rune (8044) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 8, 2011
Gravicask, one-third pint at the USA Cask Ale Bar where the ales were gradually released during GBBF’11. Faint beige head that left solid lacing at the glass. Nice mahogany body colour. Brown and black malts to the nose. Tasty stuff with elements of chocolate, anise and bready malts supported by spices. Gentle bittering malts to the ending. Absolutely satisfying (London, 04.08.2011).

Deep red, beige ring head. Sharp fruity aroma, nearly sour. Spicy and almost peppery palate. Some milkiness , but a full roast too. A decent, if slightly quirky, porter - quite well balanced.
