Rune (11630) - Troms, NORWAY - OCT 11, 2016
From cask by gravity on the second day at Plymouth Camra Beer Festival 2016. Deep dark ruby coloured body. Lacing rings down the glass from a fading fawn-coloured head. Roasted malty aroma with hints of dark berries. Similar taste of dark fruits, liquorice and chocolate malts. Roasted endnotes. Easy to drink and feels a bit thin bodied in the mouth. Just alright (Shared with Finn 24.09.2016).

SweatyFatBloke (1) - - MAR 17, 2015 does not count
Such a wonderfully smooth & nutty flavoured beer. A slight hint of chocolate on the palette is followed by a creamy, rounded finish. Very dark in the glass with a tight creamy head, this has a very slight hint of vanilla int he finish as well. All in all one of the better ales I have tasted in 2015
