4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
750 ml. bottled 2013/07/10. Nearly opaque, deep mahogany color with a lasting centimeter of creamy foam. Aroma is mixed light and dark fruit, brown bread, toffee, cocoa and espresso with cream. Tastes of lightly tart berry, vanilla, dark toasted bread, dark chocolate and toffee. Swirling notes of orange, apple, plum and all kinds of darker fruit throughout. Only minor distraction is the long finish has some scorched sugar and grain that gets a little overbearing at times. Medium-heavy body is lightly tingly with a smooth carbonation. Great balance from all directions and dangerously drinkable for 11%.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aromas of darkly roasted malts, coffee, and suggestions of dark chocolate are pronounced. A cola-brown hue with a lasting, one finger tan head and minor lacing. The taste is robust. Cocoa, chocolate, richly roasted coffee and some malt sweetness. Medium body and medium carbonation. Overall, not what I think of when I think of a Belgian Strong Ale. And with the name "Winter" I was expecting something more spicy. That being said, this was an excellent tasting beer. More like a Stout than anything. Would drink again.

33 cl bottle. Pours a dark brown with a creamy tan head. Aroma is strong coffee and alcohol. Taste is sweet. Palate is full body, thick and creamy with a long finish. Overall a unique winter beer, but a little too coffee for my taste.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
schenkt als dropwater met prikkelende bruine kraag
aroma van drop, mocca/koffie en anijs.
smaken zijn redelijk zoet, matig bitter, sterk, matig fruitig, redelijk moutig, drop, koffie en laurier, zoethout en chocolade. eigenlijk is het zoals @MaartenRF10 ook al aangeeft een Haags Hopjesbier. maar moet er niet aan denken om > 0.33 cl hiervan te drinken
