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.

afireinside96 (923) - Mountville, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 8, 2009
330ml bottle served in a Duvel tulip. Deep brown pour topped by a small diminishing khaki head. Smells very sweet with notes of molasses, brown sugar, red grapes, doughy yeast. Lots of molasses in the flavor, fruity, slightly vinous. Produces a lot of warmth on its way down. Very smooth. Its a decent beer but a bit too sticky for my tastes.

Syd (921) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 31, 2003
Bottle pours a deep, almost black, color with some head and decent lace. The aroma is yeasty and fruity. The flavor is fruity, anise like, and a dry finish. The palate is fine. Overall, I've had much better Belgian seasonals.

ha1ag (873) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - JAN 19, 2008
bottled at Take One in Mestreech. Very nice dark brown color, with thick quickly diminishing beige head. Lots of fruits in the nose and in arome like plum and raisins. A bit of hops coming in too. COmpared to the earlier tasters this beer must have improved,

Alcohol and sweat in aroma. Some sweet malty notes. Roasted finish and palate. Not very interesting.

Kosmokrator (849) - ITALY - FEB 25, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 24, 2015 Bel color rubino scuro con una soffice schiuma bianca persistente. Aroma dolciastro, zuccheroso e leggermente speziato con forti sentori di frutti essicati e malto. Il gusto dolce con note di fiori, mele e pere; al palato corposa grazie allalcool ma non liquorosa ed sorprendentemente rinfrescante; finale lungo e bilanciato. Non ho notato grosse differenze tra la bottiglia e la spina, ottima in entrambi i casi.

Flaska frn Beergium. Mrk, nstan svart vtska med brunbeiget fingerhgt skum. Rejlt med russin och torkad frukt i doften, tillsammans med kandisocker. Ligger nra i smaken om n med en ngot mer framtrdande beska och ltt brnda toner som balanserar stman fint. Medelstor kropp som svller fint i munnen. Stiltypiskt, inte superspnnande, men bra.

beervana (781) - Libertyville, Illinois, USA - DEC 22, 2005
Sampled at a 2005 Christmas and Winter beer tasting at Delilahs, Chicago, IL. 2003 vintage. Hazy amber hued ale having a small diminishing head. No discernable carbonation. Sweet malt aroma. Medium bodied that starts with spicy, light sweet malt, and toffee flavors. Finishes dry with sour aftertaste. This is a good drinkable beer.

Deep brown, ruby highlights, tan head. Malty-sweet with toffee, bread crusts, figs, plumbs, juniper is on the light side, an earthy spiciness. Good winter warmer.

jde123 (775) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 30, 2004
Pours a rich copper color with a large beige head. Cinnamon and dark fruits, figs, and some nutmeg too - accompanied by a dulcet aroma of alcohol. Decent palate, seems to be a little oily with a bitter finish. Taste is a little underdeveloped. Very yeasty, with some chocolate notes that didnt come through in the aroma. Alcohol is somewhat noticeable. Best from this brewer.
