English: Ølfabrikken Winter Ale is a complex double fermented ale brewed to the Danish vinter We have fermented this ale with two different yeast strains - first an english ale yeast and next a belgian abbey-ale yeast. It provides an unique combination of fruitiness and robustness backed up by six different malts and beet sugar and belgian candi sugar. Serving: With its malty taste and subdued bitterness this ale is the perfect companion for the lightly spiced, traditional danish vinterdishes with dark meat and vegetables. Ølfabrikken Vinter Ale is, of course, unpasteurized, unfiltered and bottle conditioned like all of our beers.

The foam is nice and long and smells really good fruit (plum, raisin and peach). The taste is slightly vinous without being too heavy and very fruity of the aforementioned fruits, while in the taste also get a hint of pineapple. Easy chocolate in the aftertaste, which incidentally is quite bitter left. Precisely the lack of hop bitterness clothes this ale tremendously well. It seems very appropriate for the sweet fruit tones from the outset presented to them.
