4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft at the Taphouse, Copenhagen, Denmark.
Cloudy golden color with a small white head.
Brandy and port wine in the aroma... and nothing else. Well sweetness and apples. I happen to love port wine so the aroma is divine. The flavor is quite the same but a bit thinner. Really enjoyable. All port lovers, this is the thing. Apples.
