33cl, at 11.5%Vol, Dutch brew, from De Bierkoning Amsterdam, complex brew, sweet/spicy and slightly roasted, yet not too heavy, balanced, hazy, small head, nice Winter brew, íThis to celebrate my 2500th Ratebeer rating! Starting my life as a wine taster I didnít think I would get so far with craft beer... I still pursue all bottled Belgian beers I havnít rated yet, except low alcohol and table beers. Iím also interested in some good Dutch and Danish craft beer. Many thanks to those fellow Beergeeks who helped me out in this never ending venture...í
