Plovmand (6480) - Helsinge, DENMARK - JUN 1, 2011
Bottle. Pours hazy amber with a small off white head. The aroma is wood, oak, sweet malt, bread, sweet caramel, berries and raisins. Lovely! The flavour is bread, sweet fruit, toasted caramel, prunes, raisins, dates and brown sugar. Sweet but the alcohol is well hidden. A very nice beer to enjoy next to the fire place.
