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.

sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 6, 2007
Tasted 11/02/07. 330ml bottle. Unfilterd and rather opaque. Brown with a touch ruby red highlight. Beige head. Toffee aromas. Chocolate and port. Cocoa peppery and red berries aromas. Full bodied and sugary fruity sweet. Bready cinnamon malts. Moderate cocoa and coffee acidity. Vanilla candy sweetness. Cloying and oily. Slick with fruity undertones. Touch ginny but over shot by the big malts. Great warmer but slightly dulled. Nay, blended. Mild red fruit. Graham cracker malts. Medium but big. Oaky woody and toasty. Good.

blklab2007 (2118) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 15, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2008 bottle poured a dark nutty brown in color with slow carbination leaving a ring of head on the glass. smell is of dark fruits, malts, dark sugar, alcohol, and figs. the smell is just inviting but onto the taste. definitely has a nice malt backbone with figs and other ripe fruit, if those juniper berries are in there then they are good too just dont know what one tastes like. body is full like a port but not too sweet or flat tasting with the low (almost non existing) carbination. really a well done beer that tastes like care was taken in making it. the only strange thing is the bottle stated they are on a mission to bring real hops back to Belgian brewing, there is definitely some nice hops in the bottle but not what one would expect for "bringing the hops back". a real good beer that should be rated a little higher in my mind.
