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.

This was interesting. It poured a dark brown cloudy color with virtually no head. The flavor was very rum like with dried dark fruit flavors also. Not a bad beer.

Appearance: pours clear dark brown with good beige soapy head and lacing. aroma/taste notes: brown sugar, light alcohol, light wood, chocolate, dried fruits, raisins and light floral notes. palette: strong malty and yeasty aroma, average carbonation, medium to full body, notable sweetness, somewhat balanced by an average bitterness, medium to long duration and an oily texture. Overall: Nice warming and tasteful winter ale

Nice caremel dark strong ale with an annoying, almost revolting iron scent. Made me worry the brew was going to taste like it, luckily it did not.

Brune rougeâtre très foncée, effervescence légère, mousse brune tombe très rapidement. Malts légèrement torréfiés, amertume réglissée mais pas trop, notes de moka, un rien épicée et fruitée juste comme il faut. Bien équilibrée et assez subtile.

Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - MAR 10, 2010
Bottle. A cloudy dark amber/brown beer, with an average sized, mostly diminishing light brown head. The aroma is malty, very fruity and sweet, with notes of toasted malts, fig, raisins, plums, chocolate, caramel and spices. The flavour is heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. A little syrupy, but in a way I don’t dislike. Medium to full body, lively carbonation. long finish with light bitterness, lightly alcoholic. Rather thick and heavy, but perfect for a cold winter evening near the fireplace.

Inoven (1042) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - DEC 12, 2017
Flesje gedeeld met Frans. Donkerbruin helder bier met weinig schuim. Aroma en smaak is fruitig en zoet. Weinig nasmaak.

SpudClampDawg (1029) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - APR 5, 2008
11.2oz bottle: The deep brown pour leaves a slght window for some transparent crimson to sneak in. The thin tan head is here and gone in no time. Earthy, bready aroma leaves something to be desired. The body makes up for the lackluster aroma with creamy malts and a nice cherry esthery note that lingers on the back end. Drinks a bit watery, but is complex enough to get a higher grade.

3.6
IlanMan (1015) - Appleton, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 2, 2008
Pour is dark with minimal tan head. Aroma of dark fruit, sweetness, and light malt. Taste is real smooth with some fruity notes, average malt, and a yeasty flavor. Alcohol is well hidden. Good brew. May buy again.

4.3
dreadnord (1012) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 25, 2011
Pours a very dark brown with a tan head. Nose is banana, vanilla and plums. Tastes sweet with no hops detected but thus is not a bad thing. Caramel notes dominate. Mouthfeel is silky smoove. Delicious beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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