COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A dark mahogany ale with relaxed and mellowed tastes of coffee and chocolate with some hints of licorice, all thanks to the diverse toasted malts used.

yngwie (13214) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 14, 2009
Cask at Copenhagen Beerfestival. It’s a flat, dark brown beer almost without head. Burnt and roasted nose with dried fruits. Roasted and burnt flavor too, quite coffee-ish, with some notes of dms. Flat, medium full, dry mouthfeel. The finish is bitter of the roasted kind. I might not sound very enthusiastic about this one, but it was actually quite nice. (090517)

Rune (7777) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 1, 2009
Gravicask, shared with Skinnyviking at the Copenhagen Beer Festival 09. Devil black body. Fragile bubbles on the top. Pleasant to the nose with mild hints of liquorice. Flavoured with sweet dark malts and a touch of cocoa. Slightly roasted. Rather vapid on the palate. Needs more body (15.05.2009).
