RATINGS: 300   WEIGHTED AVG: 3.65/5   EST. CALORIES: 360   ABV: 12%
Translated from Dutch, on the painted label: "heavy beer, 12% ABV, from for long cellaring. Full, dark, aromatic. Now ready to drink, but around 2008 at its peak. Store cool and dark. Drinkable until eternity." English bottles: Exquisitely brewed by Browerij De Hemel - "Heaven" in Dutch - and gently accented with spices lovingly picked from the Garden of Eden. It is specially brewed to give pleasure for all Eternity. Keep it in your cellar as long as you can. It just gets better as time goes by.

PeatyPete (953) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 19, 2016
2012 edition. Murky amber coloured beer with direct disappearing head. Aroma of canned fruit and sugar candy. Taste of vanilla, marmalade, sugary and boozy. Only downside was the price.

Thank you for sharing people! 2013 Vintage. Sampled 330 ml. bottle @ “Gouda Winterbier Festival 2016”. Hazy amber with an off-white head. Nose is warming, very sticky sweet candy, orange peel, sugar, light cloves, touch vanilla. Taste is weird cacao, sugar, cloves, warming orange peel, raisin, dates, cloying, grain, spices cake. Low carbonation, sugar & orange peel body. Minor odd flourishes but quite nice if you are into strong, sugary, low carb. vintage brews like this (I am).

UPDATED: MAY 5, 2016 New rating: Sampled from tap at the brewpub. Clear, dark brownish amber with a white to tan head. Sweetish-malty aroma of caramel, honey, nuts and brown sugar. Sweetish-malty taste of caramel, brown sugar, nuts and some hiney, followed by a medium long, slightly bitter, a little spicy finish. Medium to full body, creamy and slightly effervescent mouthfeel, soft to average carbonation. Nice, a bit rounder than the standard version.

Pint Winterbierfestival, Gouda 2016. Gedeeld met de ratebeer clan!
altijd leuk een flesje met waxlaag, doet vermoeden dat er wel een fantastisch bier in moet zitten... het schenkt iig helder caramel/bruin met witte kraag. aroma van zoet, alcohol, caramel, rozijn, graan. smaken zijn redelijk zoet, alcoholisch, graan, licht zuurtje, licht kruidig, rozijn, graan, medium body, iets dun van textuur, smooth, aardige barley wine, winkel verkoopwaarde ligt mijns inziens iets te hoog.

mariuspoenari (1693) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 14, 2015
Bought this one at Oersoep beer fest 2015. Dark caramel colour with not much head. Smells of caramel and molasses and sweet malts, and also of piney hops. The taste is quite nice, like the beer’s been bourbon barrel-aged, with notes of caramel, bourbon and honey on top of a bitter hop body. A bit boozy, especially when it was cold (which was surprising for me, because, usually beers get boozy as they get warm), but has a nice warm and smooth mouthfeel.
