COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"Garún is named for the strong and brave heroine of one of Iceland’s most popular folktales "The deacon of Dark River (Myrká)." A tale of ghosts, undying love, and life triumphing over death told against the backdrop of elements essential to Iceland’s character: ice, snow, and flooding waters whirling dark and mysterious. The same elements that inspire this rich, intense, bold and swirlingly varied Icelandic stout. Garún is a dark aura of intense richness and haunting aroma with notes of chocolate, licorice and coffee. Skál!"

kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 25, 2017
Dark brown to black body with a minimal ring of brown head. The nose is very roasty and chocolaty with burnt malt and light alcohol. The flavor is pretty solid, burnt and roasty with lots of chocolate. Lingering burnt malt and alcohol. Medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation. A little bit of an acidic or sour twang on the finish is a bit off. Meh, not great.

4.2
colui72 (1032) - HONG KONG - MAY 4, 2017
Pours black, with a medium tan head and some spotty lacing. Aroma of roasted malts, not particularly rich. Taste is rich of flavour with strong roasted dark malts, licorice, with notes of dark fruits, chocolate and coffee. Some booze comes out in the end, but it’s quite well hidden. Medium bitterness, full body, medium carbonation. Very tasty stouts, although not particularly distinctive, great stuff, overall!
