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.

Fles. Goed winterbier, mooi van kleur en vol van smaak met verschillende elementen.

Koelschtrinker (20398) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 26, 2017
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

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.

Winterbier met een zoet-kruidige smaak en dito aroma. Karamel, gebrande mout, anijs. Prima.

Gaelic (179) - 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.

Icedwarf (1654) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - DEC 29, 2016
Robijnrood bier met weinig schum. Smaak is licht bitter en zoet met iets van karamel en drop. Gewoon een goed en degelijk winterbier.

EvNa (331) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 25, 2016
UPDATED: DEC 25, 2016 Bottle. Color: Ruby to chestnut brown, fast disappearing beige head. Taste: Sweet malts, spices, cinnamon, licorice. Hints of chocolate. Finish is tending more to the bitter side. Medium body, soft carbonation. Nice winter warmer.

2.7
gyhallmanti (512) - Groningen, NETHERLANDS - DEC 9, 2016
33cl bottle at home. Pours a clear dark brown colour with no head. Aroma of spices, malts, red fruit, caramel, grain. Taste is sweet, soft bitter with a soft bitter finish. Notes of raisins, red fruits, caramel, malts, grainy, chocolate. Texture is watery to oily, medium bodied with flat carbonation.

Bijl (634) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 30, 2016
UPDATED: DEC 31, 2016 Amber donkerood helder bier. Creme schuimkraag die goed begind maar later geheel weg is. Ook geen laagje. Je ruikr direct karamel, ook iets donker fruitigs. En een lichte kruidigheid.De smaak, zoals de geur doet verwachten, is karamelzoet licht kruidig en licht bitter. Wat alcohol verwarming op het einde en licht geroosterde mout. Medium body.... Zoet en plakkerig mondgevoel.
