PapaVillum (503) - Valby, DENMARK - JUN 21, 2013
75 cl, 10 %, 21. juni 2013. Mørkebrun ufiltreret øl med tæt stor skumkrone. Denne falder dog til ca 1/2 cm efter et par minutter. Dufter af tørret frugt, rosin, blomme. God sødme, men ikke for kraftig og godt spillet op ad en god bitterhed. Rund, lettere cremet mundfølelse. Smagen afsluttes med let sødme og god kraftig alkoholstyrke. Fik anbefalet denne øl på trods af "vinter-titlen" til drikning hele året, og jeg må takke for dét råd. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sample of the Winter 2012 @ ZBF 2013 Cheesy, coffee, spicy aroma. Pours black with a brown head, good volume but fading, some sparkling in this one (haven’t seen much sparkling beers a ZBF, maybe the glasses?). Sweet and bitter taste, some coffee, caramel, burned toast, bread. Light fizzy mouthfeel with some alcoholwarmth. Long sharp burnedbitter aftertaste. Sticky mouthfeel.

IPA_PAL (7) - New York, USA - FEB 17, 2013 does not count
on draft at spuyten duyvil - pours a dark brown almost amber color in the light. no head or lacing on the glass. smell is chocolate with a dark fruit and licorice finish. very little carbonation but leaves a more dry finish on the mouth and tongue. taste is cocoa with a kick of cinnamon and pepper. I feel if it was creamier it would have more to offer. overall and average winter Belgian ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MoritzF (8590) - Bochum, GERMANY - FEB 3, 2013
(bottle, 33cl, vintage 2011) Hazy, ruby brown colour with a beige and big foamy head. Yeasty and earthy roast-malty aroma with notes of caramel, nuts and dried berries, accompanied by spicy notes of liquorice. Sweet and roasty bitter flavour, full bodied with a moderate carbonation. Roasty malt-character with yeasty and liquorice spice, combined with dried fruits and a warming alcoholic strength; sweet malty, roasty bitter and mildly spicy finish. Pleasant winter warmer. 03.II.13
