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.

Scopey (13330) - 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. Couldnt drink too much of it though.

Lubiere (13193) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 27, 2008
Deep clear brown ale with burgundy hues, and a thick oka head. A pleasant herbal aroma, slight caramel, currants and alcohol. In mouth, a sweet caramel with nice light maple, light hopping, cointreau overtones, lacking a bit in body, but overall, a very nice x-mas ale with warming alcohol. Bottle at Oud Arsenaal, 1.90 Euro, Nov. 2006.

thewolf (12274) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUN 5, 2007
Bottle. A very murky brown with a small film head. Powerful aroma. Sweet, raisins, dark caramel, some distant chocolate or cocoa. Quite light body - surprisingly so! Flavour is ominated by liqourice and a roasted bitterness with some vanilla and chocolate as well. Disappointing taste compare to aroma.
