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.

harrisoni (13599) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2010
Bottle in a hotel room in Bruges. Black, thin beige head. Choccy nose, bit of boozyness on aroma. Liquorice, I really don’t like liquorice. Boozy too. Pretty much not in my palate. All wrong for me, but nothing wrong with it.

yngwie (13399) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 9, 2012
Bottle. A brown, clear beer topped by a finger-thick, dense, beige head. The aroma has some solvent hints, with crocant, roasted malts and dark dried fruits. Dried fruits, plums and some roasted malts in the flavor, slightly bitter and alcoholic in the finish. Smooth on the palate, full-bodied. A quite nice beer, but far from world class. 110916

Bottle at home (after a eurofins summerparty). Black - light brown head. Berries, roasted, sweetness, yeasty, cherry, grease, leather, bark, port like. Alcoholic nose. Rather pleasant taste, but sweet & sharp aftertaste...

TBone (12544) - Pori, FINLAND - DEC 1, 2004
Bottled
Dark red ruby, quickly vanishing expresso head. Crisp - fruits, berries and malts in the nose, not very strong aroma. Plums, raisins and a bit of brown sugar in the sweetish palate. Very thin and watery. Does not show much ABV or anything else.

argo0 (11452) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 3, 2007
(33cl bottle, best by 2/08) Small beige head atop murky dark brown body. Aroma is moderately sweet, caramel, candi sugar, raisin, some molasses, light anise. Taste is medium sweet, caramel, some raisin/plum, faint chocolate. Light-medium body holds the alcohol fairly well.

thewolf (11158) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUN 5, 2007
Bottle. A very murky brown with a small film head. Powerful aroma. Sweet, raisins, dark caramel, some distant chocolate or cocoa. Quite light body - surprisingly so! Flavour is ominated by liqourice and a roasted bitterness with some vanilla and chocolate as well. Disappointing taste compare to aroma.

Travlr (11132) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 4, 2010
Dark maroon color with a small tan head that quickly disappears. Scant lacing. Aroma has bitter chocolate, raisins, vanilla and roasted malt. Flavor begins with milk chocolate and progresses to dark fruits and spice. Complex and interesting. Good body. Definitely a top Christmas beer.
