Bottle from Vinmonopolet Lillemarkens. Dark brown, no head. Small fizz when opened, so there is some carbonation at least. Red fruit and alcohol nose. Plum, burnt sugar, caramel, coffee flavour. Sweet. Bitter ending. Thick, very oily body. Warming. A little carbonation, which is more than expected. Interesting, but really didnt need to be this high in alcohol.
