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.

ozzatoadisback (172) - ITALY - DEC 20, 2016
Opaque black. Small off-white head, shows nice retention and some lacing though. Aroma shows a soft yeasty and sugary base with notes of liquorice, slight spiciness and maybe a hint of dried fruits. Not super intense but definitely very nice. Taste has a caramel malts base and sugary sweetness, its both sweet and soft. Notes of liquorice, slight coffee, dark fruits more easily noticeable as the beer warms up. Again a slight hint of spiciness. Overall it’s obviously mostly sweet, but those light coffee notes and a slight hint of bitterness in the aftertaste are bringing good balance. Body is a bit lighter than your average per style, average carbonation, overall very easy but still warmingly soft. Very good stuff

In de geur en smaak iets zoetigs, kruidigs, port-achtigs. De nasmaak is wat bitterder en een beetje gebrand. Lekkere volle smaak. Mooi donker bier.

Vignale (3827) - Malmö, SWEDEN - NOV 27, 2016
Flaska från Beergium. Drygt ett år gammal. Mahognyfärgad med lågt men krämigt skum. Fin söt djup doft med fudge, torkad frukt, karamelliserat socker, rostade nötter, choklad, aningen sherry. Mjuk rund smak, komplex och välbalanserad, riktigt snygga söta maltiga smaker i flera lager, lätt aniskryddig med aningen beska. En riktigt fin vintervärmare.

Sweet aroma with caramel malts, chocolate, dark, dried fruits, coffee and nuts. Vague hints of booze. Taste is sweet. Full body with an oily texture and a soft carbonation.
