COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Beside the ‘Bloesem Bink’, you can also enjoy a second seasonal beer, the ‘Winterkoninkske’. This beer is, just like the others, unfiltered, not pasteurized, with secundary fermentation in the bottle. The ‘Winterkoninkske’ is the ideal beer to make a cold and chilly winter evening pleasant. The ingredients are: seven types of malt (among which rolled oats), two belgian types of hop, brewing liqour and yeast. Our winter beer is a dark and heartwarming beer with a pure, sugary flavour and a long, bitter aftertaste. The alcohol content of this heavy beer is 8,3 % vol.alc.

God kraftig øl. Så smagfuld at man kun drikker en hvilket trækker ned i samlet vurdering. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

leghorn99 (193) - Livorno, ITALY - OCT 25, 2015
La birra è di colore marrone scuro, con dei riflessi rossastri; la schiuma, molto persistente, è beige, fine e cremosa. Al naso liquirizia, malto tostato, toffee, leggeri sentori minerali e leggera frutta sotto spirito (prugne). E’ una birra con un corpo medio-pieno, morbida e rotonda in bocca, mediamente carbonata; al primo impatto troviamo note di caffè, liquirizia, toffee; man mano che la birra si riscalda emergono netti sentori fruttati di prugne secche, ribes nero e uvetta sotto spirito, cioccolato. Una speziatura appena percepibile la rende piacevolmente “vivace” durante tutta la bevuta. Abboccata, lascia un retrogusto ricco di frutta sotto spirito che riscalda.

Bottle, shared with my wife. Medium brown with amber highlights and a lively golden brown head. Burnt sugars and light spices, like a spicy, yeasty doppelbock! This was great!
