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.

UPDATED: JAN 13, 2014 molto molto scura con lievi riflessi di rame,schiuma morbida e persistente color nocciola..aroma alcolico,fruttato,non molto forte ma delicato..carbonazione medio/bassa,gusto deciso,classico di questo stile,dolce,frutta scura,alcool, con un bellissimo finale misto dolce/luppolato, retrogusto che la rende pericolosamente beverina! speciale davvero...regalo di margherita :) 13/01/2014 molto probabilmente la birra ha cambiato ricetta..più scura,schiuma marrone..aroma molto maltato ma anche ricco di liquirizia..gusto altrettanto forte di liquirizia,dove si aggiunge il caffè,lievissimi sentori futtati e un amaro a tratti percepibile alla fine..molto molto corposa e densa..buona ma non la prima birra che ho votato..questa è sul 3.6

Fles geprobeerd met LiekevdV. Het is een donkerbruin bier met een bruin schuim. Het heeft een bittere smaak van gebrand mout, koffie en kruiden.

anstei (2246) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - MAY 8, 2017
Bottle at Erzbierschof Monday Club, 2012 vintage. Pours hazy darkest brown. Aroma is strong sweet malts, candy, roasted dark malts, caramel, dried figs, booze. Boozy warming palate, still caramel flavours and candy. Very good!

lkowalkowski (397) - POLAND - MAR 14, 2017
Barwa ciemna, piana beżowa, niezbyt trwała. Aromat średnio intensywny, palone słody, karmel, kakao. Dosyć słodko. W smaku przyprawowe, nie za słodkie. Alkohol delikatnie wyczuwalny.

Zilverenmaan (192) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - FEB 21, 2017
Brown sugar, some alcohol, a hint of chocolate, smells syrupy, tastes oily with thick mouthfeel. A bit watery, it’s balanced and definately not a boring uncomplex brew but tastes somewhat "unbonded".

Scopey (14699) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2016
Bottle at level 42, thanks to Wingman. It pours dark ruby - brown with a thick tan head. The aroma is very spicy, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, treacle, toast and earthy roast. The taste is sweet, sticky, treacle, festive spice, candi sugar, sugared plum, Dandelion & Burdock, alcohol, ginger and dried fruits with a dry, spiced finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. A pretty ok spiced Belgian strong. Couldn’t drink too much of it though.

evergreen0199 (3365) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 25, 2016
Bottle picked up in a shop in Brugge last week. A dark brown coloured pour with a medium beige head on top. Typical Belgian spice, caramel aroma. Tastes sweet, malty, dark fruit, caramel, spice. Decent Belgian winter fayre.

The_Osprey (7980) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 24, 2016
December 2016 - Bottle share at 1 Canada Square. Many thanks to Dave. As Kerkan Winterkoninkske anno 1878, 8.3%. Dark brown with a slight orange hue, foamy brown head. Aroma is big on the banana bread, also chalky. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste has more banana bread and foam banana sweets, bready malts and a spicy finish with some booze showing up. Quite nice. (3.6)
