TET (1643) - FINLAND - JUN 18, 2014
A dark coppery beer with a medium and blond head. The aroma is rich with dried fruits, quite sweet, plums and raisins, caramell malts and sherry. Taste starts with strong sweetness, dried fruits, raisins, a wooden hoppyness dries the mouth nicely. Surprisingly, a taste is quite short with medium bodied. In the end warming alcohol in the throat. Beer with dried fruits without nuancees from belgian yeast, "brittish dried fruits".
