09.01.13. Bottle. A bit fluffy, off-white foam. Clear, reddish-brown beer. Aroma sweetish, hint of berries. Taste is a bit sour, dryish, cardboard. Quite smooth mouthfeel. Dryish bitter aftertaste. Not too shabby, but nothing special.

Bottle at home. Hazy brown pour, thick foamy off-white head. Aroma is spicy, sugary, fruity, bready, caramel and with some toffee. Flavor is very sweet and slightly spicy, clean and thick bodied. Although on the sweet side, still very well drinkable. Nice brew.

Medium sized creamy tan head, which is vast on top and right airy underneath. Changes with regular speed into a sticky lacing on top of a hazy brown amber colored beer.
Smell toasted barleys, creamy sugary notes like brown sugars ans sugar powder, porridge, hint of darker fruits, creamy malts.
Taste barley malts, toast, darker fruits, bitters, yeast, some hops, grains and a sprinkle of some light sweetness like brown sugars and caramel.
Aftertaste floral, hops, hay, grass, toast, bitters, barleys and herbs.
Medium carbo, blown and spicy mouthfeel, medium body and a light creamy bit thin texture.
Easy drinkable, no trace of alcohol. Nice!

I know the taste adn smell and can’t pin it down...nuts, toffee, caramel, apricots, figs, raisins, swwet and soothing. Lots of sediment make this a cloudy orange copper color with sticky thick foam.This is truly delicious. Note: my bottle is not labeled as "Winterbier" , just "Bruin"

Dobre, dobre ciemne piwo z przyprawami zimowymi. choć ma tylko 6% alc sprawia wrażenie jakby rozgrzewało solidnie. Lekki karmel w posmaku, a słodku wytrawny smak równomiernie się miesza z sobą. Dobrze skomponowane piwo

4.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
33cL bottle. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this beer. Pours an average "bruin" head, mahogany color, lots of sediment. Aroma is medium strength, belies some spiciness. Taste is closer to a quadrupel, complex for a bruin...delicious. I really, really enjoyed this beer!
