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.

Bardzo smaczne zimowe piwo, prawdziwe sezonowo warzone w zimie. Rozgrzewajaca nuta i alkoholowy finisz. W zapachu ciasteczka korzenne i gozdziki, troche cynamonu. W smaku lukrecja slodki karmel i rozgrzewajace zaraz po przelknieciu. Piwo bardzo ciemne i prawie czarne z lekkimi tylko przeswitami czerwieni. Wielka piana.

Flaske fra Belgisk Bryg: mitt Chouffe-glass fylles til randen av et tett skum som legger seg som lette kniplinger. En deilig aroma og smak av bjørnebær og boysenbær, iblandet litt lakris. Et helåprs snopeøl, og perfekt til første episode av den nye, kontemporære Sherlock Holmes-episoden på nrk.

fletchfighters (1056) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 24, 2013
330 ML bottle Dark brown color, some ruby highlights. Collar of light brown film. Vigorous swirling got a half finger of head before settling back to collar. Slight lacing. Sweet nose. Sugar, plumb, aniseed, Stewed pear, stewed apple, some cranberry. Taste is just as sweet. Candied sugar, candied dark fruits, candied rolled oats in back of the taste. Sugar bomb. Good hop bite( candied peppermint) but overshadowed by the sugar. Medium feel, syrupy, low carbonation. Slight honey notes in the back of the palate. Finishes dry but sweet. Slow sipping winter beer over a fire. Man, I miss these beers.

BarossaLuke (539) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 9, 2013
A dark beer with little to no head. Quite effervescent which lightens the mouth feel of the beer. Aroma has dark dried fruits like prunes and raisins with some lighter fruity notes too. There is a clean finish and some alcoholic warmth. I probably served this too cold, would be better warmer in a tulip glass to really appreciate the aroma and flavour.

Deep brown, ruby highlights, tan head. Malty-sweet with toffee, bread crusts, figs, plumbs, juniper is on the light side, an earthy spiciness. Good winter warmer.

jkwood04 (3847) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 28, 2013
11.2oz bottle in a Trappist glass. Pours dark brown with a lacy, light tan head. Aroma of spicy yeast, some chocolate, caramel, and cereal from the malts, and light hops. Flavor the same, with a nice blend of everything, especially the malts and hints of alcohol on the finish. Smooth texture. A pretty good Belgian beer.

Koffie bruin, bijna zwart bier. Aroma is een tikkeltje zoet, caramel. Smaak proef je de jeneverbes terug. Volle smaak met flink koolzuur zorgt voor een mooi mondgevoel. Nasmaak is heel heftig, bijna een Stout, erg bitter.
