Rune (9109) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 12, 2013
Our last drink after three happy drinking days at The National Winter Ales Festival 2013. Half-pint, cask served from bar 3. Dotted sports to the glassware, Coal black body with a deep rustic shade. Aromatic with plums, raisin and dark malts. The taste profile brings spiced mid-sweet malts and dried fruits as well as anise and caramel offset by berries. Malt bitter aftertaste. Fits the season well (Manchester, 25.01.2013).

330ml Bottle - Brown in colour with a slight haze. Fruity and spicy aroma with hints of Christmas cake, raisins, caramel and malt. Spicy, fruity and slightly tangy taste with hints of cinnamon, nutmeg, raisins and caramel. The spice is evident in the aroma and the taste, but isn’t overwhelming. The finish is fruity and spicy with a slight sweetness. Enjoyable and rather easy to drink.
