3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bought a bottle at the Albert Heijn in Gorinchem. The beer is brown colored with a red glow, the head is a dissapears quickly and the CO2 level is a little low. In the aroma tones of liquorice and juniper berries. The taste is full and rich with tones of drop and laurel. The finish is long and has a full-bodied taste. I miss the warmth of the alcohol, which I aspect in a winter beer. Further it’s a nice one.
300ml bottle - thanks Koelschtrinker! (5:4:5:3:9=2.6)Marduk (8622) - Reval, ESTONIA - DEC 25, 2017
Woooof! Solventy aroma, sweet, acetone. Copper, ring head. Sickly sweet solventy boozy taste, dark honey sweetness. Does improve with each sip, but I still don't like it much - it's messy. Until... holy shit!!! This smells like a fucked-up Rochefort 8. This is a fake belgian, I can believe they harvested the yeast. Final sip was somewhat like gingerbread. Very messed-up brew, sweetness and solventiness bad.
300ml bottle. Clear dark brown color. Tiny size, beige head, stays. Sweet, caramel, herbal, do I get anise as well in aroma? Sweet, caramel, bready and booze in taste. Caramel, sweet, booze in aftertaste. Sweet and boozy. Average brew. nathanvc (796) - Brugge, BELGIUM - DEC 12, 2017
At Taverne De Grenssteen, Vaals. Shared with Anke.Maracuja05 (2050) - Mainz, Rineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - DEC 7, 2017
Pours hazy amber/brown with a lasting, off-white head; decent lacing. The aroma contains caramel or candi sugar, licorice, hops & spices, some candied fruit and herbs. It tastes medium caramel-like sweet and light spicy bitter; the finish is spicy, tea-like herbal and alcoholic. Medium body, slick texture, fizzy carbonation. Too simple in aroma, not warming enough...

Weicher malziger Beginn mit süßlicher Tendenz, die aber nicht zu stark ist. Geringe Alkoholnoten, etwas kräutrig, hefig, moderat herb. Rund würzig. 9/10/11/11/10/11 jerohen (2379) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - APR 27, 2017
Bottled at home, gift from my wife. Dark brown colored, small beige head. Complex nose of roasted malts, caramel, molasses, and quite some spices. A lot less complexity in flavor, roasted malts and spices, quite harsh, unrefined. Promising nose, disappointing favor. sjorsvdg (610) - NETHERLANDS - APR 3, 2017
Winterbier met een zoet-kruidige smaak en dito aroma. Karamel, gebrande mout, anijs. Prima. Pongauer (90) - Maassluis, NETHERLANDS - JAN 6, 2017
a very watery winterbeer. not really on par with the other big brewers who offer winterbeer. Gaelic (207) - Rotterdam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 1, 2017
Ruby red with a cream brown head. Lots of smell of caramel, a bit too much for me.
I would prefer it more with less carmel. Soft bitters.
