Rune (12060) - Troms, NORWAY - FEB 13, 2013
Big 750ml bottle, lotto 15 203/12, shared at The BrewDog Bar in Manchester. Patchy surface over a hazy, dark amber coloured body. Good amount of lacework. Smell of sappy fruits with hints of candy sweetness. Rather succulent taste of fruits, lightly spiced, and mingled with nutty malts. Not overly sweet to the finish. Smooth and clean in the mouth. Quite well bodied considering the relatively low alcohol strength (25.01.2013).

snzcujo (282) - RUSSIA - DEC 4, 2012
Tasted on tap @Bir&Fud, Rome on 28/10/2012. Pours of incredibly dark brown color with amazing snowy white head. Aroma is quite faint, but the beer is overcooled. Taste is malty sweet upfront, having raisins and figs tones as well. Aftertaste is bit sour, like a spoiled beer. Pretty basic beer, by all means. Neutral. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

yngwie (16874) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 2, 2012
Bottle, 75cl. It pours a lightly unclear body, golden in color and with a small, dense, off-white head. Its lightly spiced on the nose, with some sugar, a touch of spices, some nuttyness, hazelnuts I think, and a hint of caramel. Medium to full body, with a pleasant carbonation and flavors of caramel, spices, nuts and white sugar. Nutty, caramel finish. Certainly an interesting one. Unusual in a way, but nice. 121102

# 3132 ersma: bier mit maronen gibts ja nicht all zu oft. biere der brauerei allerdings schon fter. gutes marketing, offensichtlich. dunkel bernsteinfarben, mittelviel schaum, der schnell weg ist. der geruch ist hhopfig-fruchtig mit suerlicher beinote. der antrunk ist suerlich-herb mit zitrusnoten. zur mitte kommt dann der maronengeschmack zum vorschein und wird zunehmend strker. die suerlichkeit bleibt allerdigs bis in den abgang dominant. der ist deutlich maronig, dazu recht herb. die hauseigene 0.75-l-pulle mit reliefprgung ist sehr ansehnlich. fazit: etwas weniger sure tte dem ganzen gut und wrde nicht von der marone ablenken. dennoch gut trinkbar und aufgrund der kuriositt probierenswert. 10,9,10,10,14,10 - 10,05 - 24/1
