Bottle 33 cl. Pours amber with a small off-white head and an aroma of caramel, heavy malts and maybe bubblegum. The taste is on the sweet side too, with sweet, dark malts, overripe fruits and a bitter finish. Nice beer!

Bottle that I picked up from a Mitra off licence, Amsterdam, 29.09.11 consumed at Isobels, Eardisley, Herefordshire, 14.10.11 Reddy amber in colour with a touch of haze and a light beige head. Soft in the mouth, warming, touch nutty and spicy. Didn’t realise this was quite as strong as it was, nice beer though. . A6 A4 T7 P3 Ov13 3.3

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle 33cl bought at store in Bodegraven, Holland.
Ambrée, mousse beige, crémeuse et épaisse.
Arôme de malt caramel, biscuité avec des notes de houblons et de fruits noirs.
Palais est principalement malté avec des notes sucrées, herbacée avec des notes de houblons amer. Pointe de fruits noirs; prune et date, sucre brun un une amertume languissante sur la fin. Pas mauvais mais ça manque de ce petite qcq chose comme Urthel arrive à faire.

Decent winterbier, but below average. Too strong alcohol present, taste is ok but overall it’s a little unbalanced.

This beer looks pretty nice and smells pretty good also. Taste was a bit alcoholic and that ruined it a bit.

Bottle. Amberish pour with an ok white head. Malts, sweet notes and syrup in the aroma. Hints of malts and some syrup in the taste. Overall sweet notes. Could use some more body/aftertaste. Anyway, an ok brew.

Bottle from Bier Koning. Hazy brown beer, small off white head. Smooth semi dry palate. Rich malt with an obvious marmite streak. Aniseed and a whisper of smoke in the finish.Not awful but the marmite is a bit much and the boooze obvious. 2.7

Bottle that has been in the cellar for a couple of years. Smooth creamy malt, nicely balanced mellow dried fruits. Smooth finish. No marmite and no obvious booze just a whisper of spice. Much better!

UPDATED: JAN 25, 2013 Bottle @ home. Chestnut colored brew, with fair off-white head, a little layer remaining & some lacing. Aroma’s of red fruit and sugar. Flavor is fruity and fairly sweet. Lots of fruit & spices in the finish. Not bad, but I didn’t like it much (I remember liking it much more when it was still called Leckere Winterbier, but that was long tima ago).
