Rune (13186) - Tromsø, - SEP 19, 2011
330ml bottle, 2010, brought back to the true north from Vinmonopolet Vika in Oslo. Cool bottle logo and nice bottle design, including the black neck. Pours a dense, tan-coloured foamy head, slowly fading over a devil-black body. Church windows to the glassware. Semi-sweet nose of cocoa added by a bite of lactose. Cocoa-chocolate taste supported by herbal hops and roastiness. Lingering bittersweet ending of dark fruits. Well balanced and well bodied. Pleasurable brew (Session with Finn, Skibotn 16.09.2011).

375 bottle. Thanks for the sample Harri. Pours dark brown colour. Medium beige head. Sourness, bread, earthy notes, chocolate, berries, hints if red wine in the aroma. Sourness, cocoa, dark chocolate in the taste. Cocoa, earthy notes, sourness in the aftertaste. Rather medium bodied, surprisingly complex and very tasty beer.

Bottled (backlog). Dark brown colour with a beige foamy head. Aroma is chocolate, liquorice, some sourness along with mild toffee and grains. Flavour is grains, chocolate, liquorice, mild alcohol and some sour wooden notes as well. Probably infected, as the sourness wasn’t all to pleasant nor suiting the beer.

Draught at Birrerria Volo. Pitch black with tan head. Nose of coffee, chocolate, some cherries and raspberries and a hint of smoke. Coffee and chocolate, with some leather and oakiness, and lingering smoke. Tasty.

SebBrews (191) - Bucharest, ROMANIA - NOV 14, 2016
33 cl bottle bought at Eataly in Milan. Nose is soy sauce, chicory, coffee, burnt bread. Taste oscilates between bitter, smoke and sour. Soy sauce, chicory, oak, smoked wood. Medium body, medium carbonation, dry, sour-bitter finish. Disappointing.

Vignale (3917) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUL 11, 2016
Flaska från Etre Gourmete. 2011 vintage. Kolsvart tjock vätska med lågt mörkbeige skum. Syrlig doft med mycket choklad jämte mörk stenfrukt. Stor kropp med mycket choklad och en del kaffe, syrlig, trä, lite fat, katrinplommon, mörka plommon, mörka körsbär. Den kraftigaste mörka suröl jag druckigt och den som mest liknat en IS. Dessutom på bara 7%. Imponerande och mycket gott.
