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.

Bottle at home. Aroma is ripe dark fruits, dried fruits, plum, raisins, liquorice, malt, yeast, caramel, toffee, spicy notes, some nutmeg. Flavour is sweet with a little bitterness in the finish. Body is medium. Rather heavy sweetish spiced winter beer. Okay.

ElDesmadre (2777) - Mikołów, POLAND - DEC 29, 2015
Botle from JefVerstraete, thanks! Very malty and sweet, almost syrupy. Caramel, plums, raisins, dried fruit, bread crust, subtle fruity esters. Light oxidised, akin to port wine. The dark malts get darker in the flavour, shifting from caramel to chocolate. Very subtle note of roast in the finish, preceded by licorice and complemented by spicy overtones. Complex and very tasty.

The_Mango_Kid (36) - BELGIUM - DEC 27, 2015
Een zeer donker stoutig bier. Het aroma sprak me niet echt aan, ofwel te flets ofwel gewoon niet aangenaam, hoewel dit laatste ook het gevolg kan zijn van een ietwat vuil glas. Het uitzicht is zeer donker tot bijna gitzwart zoals je bij een stout-bier ziet. Het schuim is fijn en vast. Het smaakpallet ligt in het verlengde; donker, gekarameliseerde suikers of bijna gebrande smaak, toetsen van noten, bramen,... een waanzinnig lekker bier wat, zoals de naam het doet vermoeden, volgens mij zich meest leent voor in de winterse maanden.

Bottle from Belgian Beer Factory. Pours very dark brown. Nose is malts, spices, syrup, very sweet, a bit burnt. Slightly artificial. Taste is very malty, dark malts, light roast, spices, syrupy, sugary, malty and bitter finish. The balance is a bit off for my taste, being so heavy in maltiness and also slightly artificial. It does have a certain winter touch though.
