Our new winter ale. Available from the end of November. Brewed with lots of spices but they won’t be overwhelming in both aroma and flavour.

11.2oz bottle. Bottled 15/11/2011. Freshly arrived from the distributor. Labeled 9.8%. Totally hazy dark brown / red color. Lots of fine particles in the body hazing it up. Minimal off-white head. Some loose bits of lace. Way less head than in most De Molen brews, looks like it’s flat. Yup... Not completely flat, but very, very light carbonation. Almost flat... Bigger body. Lightly dry in the finish. I don’t completely mind the very light carbonation, it’s decently easy to drink, a nice change of pace from many overcarbonated european brews. It helps that the flavor here is pretty good. Caramel malt in the nose, but nice orange-citrus hop. Winter spice flavors work well with the dark fruit and caramel malt. Hint of chocolate... Pretty complex stuff, mostly tasty. Moderate to stronger bitter taste, little sweet in the finish. Hides alcohol decently well. At this point, a pretty decent strong hoppy (old) winter ale. Alright now, but I’d imagine this was way better fresh.

Koelschtrinker (17288) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - SEP 7, 2013
Gewürziger süßer Antrunk wobei die Gewürze zu stark sind. Daher nicht ganz rund, passende Malzigkeit. Später harmonischer, die Malzigkeit wird vollmundig, schokoladig. 9/10/9/10/9/10

McNeillR (2227) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 30, 2013
Sweet and salty preserve nose. Oily laced, swirly sticky head. Muscatty density, Zimbo’s Heinz Tomato Soup is so bang on its all I can taste at the finish. Tidy but one directional.

Heinz tomato soup which is sort of confected and dominates everything. Looks good in the bottle but...guess I could cook with it.
