cozy and intimate setting for the garden-level bar, they offer about a dozen taps with highlights being St Georgen Brau Landbier and De La Senne Zinnebier. modest bottle list has nothing extremely rare but the quality is there. after reporting that one of their Belgian golden ales was in bad shape, the bartenders were quick to agree, replaced the keg, and comped the beer. that’s service.
The name “den tatoverede enke” means “the tattooed widow” and, as a tattooed widow might, the bar keeps itself tucked away – not easy to find, it’s in a yellow ochre courtyard off Gothersgade at the Kongens Nytorv end. There’s a small bar downstairs, quite unadorned apart from a periodic table of beer, and there’s a restaurant upstairs which I understand serves very good food with beer pairings. When we were there, just before the Copenhagen Beer Festival, the restaurant was hosting a De Dolle evening – at one point the De Dolle brewer appeared on the stairs with a bow tie even bigger and brighter than usual. There’s a good selection of mainly Belgian beers, including a few on draft.

During a drinking week in Copenhagen our self-sacrificing Danish host, Skinnyviking, ordered a table at this centrally located place on a Friday eve. The food was delicious and so were the Belgian ales. I had wild boar steak covered with Belgian cheese very well paired with some excellent bottles from Malheur, recommended by a service minded and knowledgeable staff. After dinner we went downstairs to enjoy some well kept Swedish ales on tap from the Ocean and Närke breweries. A comfortable and airy venue devoted to eating and drinking experiences on a high level (30.05.2008).
Stopped in here for a late night session. Pretty spacious place located in a courtyard off a busy street. The tap selection’s almost entirely Belgian, as is the bottle list. This isn’t a bad thing, but we didn’t really travel to Copenhagen to drink Westmalle. The service was kind. The prices were fair. Overall, it might be a look in if you’re in the area, but I don’t see this as an essential stop for the visiting beer tourist.
Visited several times, more in the past than lately. The very first beertasting I attended was here, where Rene was doing the tasting. There is are bar downstairs and restaurant is upstairs, in summertime, there are outdoor seatings. Friendly service, cosy atmosphere and a nice selection of beers, both on tap and in bottles as well. They do some rather nice food as well, often with beer involved..
Great place. The bar is very cosey and have a large ariation on taps of the very best beers. Especially you can get lucky with belgian and swedish beers. One of the only places where you can get Närke Käggen (expensie though). The restaurent up-stairs is nice and the food is excellent. I always come here in week 5 the my co-workers. Some of the employees know a lot about beer.

Slightly hard to find to find at first as it’s located within a courtyard back from the main busy streets. This is a good thing, as what you find is some peace and tranquility away from the busy surroundings, and a lovely calm outside space for a warm and sunny day. Service is friendly and helpful. The main beer focus seems to be on the Belgian stuff, not something for me due to living near Belgium, but good if that’s what you’re looking for. Still, there’s other non-Belgian beers to be found.
