Tap @ den Tatoverede Enke, Cph. Pours a deep ruby-red with a big creamy yellow-white head. Aroma is sweet and fruity with prunes, vanilla and caramel. Very dubbel-ish flavour: sweet fruity, strawberries, red apples, prunes and a vinious streak. Some spices and herbs as well. Extremely drinkable (the 10,5 % completely hidden)

what a great beer. alc.% should not keep you away well rounded aroma, very well balanced taste, with a tendency to the sweet end. ends a little bitter and with a reduced version of the original flavor. truly a work of art. my score is too low.
