Maria (10213) - Thisted, DENMARK - DEC 22, 2013
It’s slightly hazy red copper with a creamy and lasting head. The aroma lovely notes of caramel and preserved and dried fruits. The flavor is sweet with notes of load of caramel, burnt sugar and roasted malt, dark dried fruits, a touch of licorice and the alcohol is just a pleasantly warming sensation, especially towards the slightly spice finish.

Bitter, hoppy flavour, with sweet notes of fruit and caramel malt. Bitter finish of hops and alcohol. Warming alcohol presence. Decent. #1974: a decent beer to celebrate the year MiP was born.
