thanatosti (1137) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 9, 2011
UPDATED: JAN 22, 2012 30 cl. bottle. Winter 2011-2012. Pours a dark amber with a thin off-white head. Roasted malts dominate along with some caramel. Was expecting some more body judging the rich colour and alcohol percentage. Decent enough winterbrew

Helder rood/amberkleurig bier met goeie witte kraag. Vrij stevig van smaak, je proeft de alcohol. Verder fruit (appel, kers), kruiden. Smakelijk, maar er zijn lekkerder winterbieren.

33cl bottle from Mitra. Clear amber pour. Good white head. fairly good for a Heineken beer

Benzai (9997) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - SEP 5, 2011
Dark amber to brown color, white head. Smell caramel, malts and some sour. Taste malts, spices and too much sweetness. Good carbo and body, but the beer itself is just above average.

JorisPPattyn (8432) - Ursel, BELGIUM - AUG 28, 2011
Very thick-set, mango-yellow, very persistent head, medium, over very slightly veiled orange-chestnut beer. Roasted & sweet malts, cake, autumn leaves, hint at cinnamon and gingerbread. Chocolate, sweet, but with a slighlty bitterish, walnut-like flavour as sweet bread, stuffed with walnuts. At least medium bodied, quite slick, bit chewy even. Definitely good winterbrew, no damage done by Heineken - Brand is still going strong.

Dark amber coloured beer with a nice cloudy foam head. Lacks a bit in taste and didn’t really like the mouthfeel.

Martinus (3711) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - MAY 6, 2011
Dark amber caramel colour, white head. Pronounced caramel aroma, sweet with slightly sour malts. Some spices and fruitiness, banana, cinnamon, cloves. Flavour of malts, quite sweet, only little hops. Same spices and fruits. Rather sticky mouthfeel, lingering caramel in the aftertaste. Bit spicier Imperator it seems. (from 33cL bottle)

Brand Sylvester is a beer specially brewed for the new year. It is a classical winter beer. The tasting starts off really sweet with hints of cinnamon. But the after taste is really Brand-ish. Too bitter. This is too bad but it also distinguishes the typical Brand flavour."

Christian (11784) - Odense, DENMARK - APR 25, 2011
Amber with a small white head. Aroma of banana, berries, and bubblegum with a touch of vineous alcohol. Dry and alcoholic flavour with fruity and grainy notes.

stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - APR 15, 2011
Pours a clear and copper beer with an offwhite head. The aroma is malt, sweetness and fruit. The flavor follows the nose with additional alcohol. The palate is sweetness. Overall an average beer.
