JorisPPattyn (8660) - Ursel, BELGIUM - DEC 7, 2008
UPDATED: DEC 9, 2008 Huge yellow-brown, dense head over beautiful deep mahogany coloured beer. Sweetish nose, very liqueurish. Spices and cypress blend to a very Ardennes-like brew. Spicy, leafy, root spices flavours. Caramel, burnt & roasted notes, almonds, faint bitterish lining. Good balance. Quite well-bodied, slick, nearly viscous. Not very distinctive finish or aftertaste. Not bad at all. Thank God it is Blauwe, and not Botte Bijl…

(Bottle 30 cl) Courtesy of fonefan. Comes as "De Leckere Winterbier. Pours a slightly hazy amber golden with a small off-white head. Delicious aroma of burned caramel. Quite full-bodied with burned caramel, pumpernickel and roasted malt. Subdued bitterness but heavy on alcohol. More British/Scottish than Belgian really. 041008
