TET (1761) - FINLAND - NOV 24, 2014
A dark brown, slightly reddisch colour, a head is dense, quite big and blond. The aroma is full of rich and dried fruits, quite sweet, dates, raisins, some strawberries and spices. Taste has dark fruits, also some fresh fruitness, prunes, hint of dry barrel. Simple taste but that’s smooth and succesfully. Medium bodied, strong but smooth carbonation. Dark fruits with nice fresher fruits also. Good beer.
