Kapittel Watou Winter (330ml Bottle)
From the delirium website: "Kapittel Winter gets its specific taste from Morellen (these are sour summer Cherry’s with a dark red color and a very specific taste. We apply cumin, liquorice and a touch of coriander. Its unique flavor and taste, makes you almost longing for the dark and windy wintertime which makes this a romantic mood creator, an ideal companion. Our Christmas beer has a hazy mahogany amber color, topped by a finger-thick beige head. It has a particular smell of original dark Belgian fondant chocolate. The entry is soft and sweet, with a hinge to cherry, dried berry fruits and spicy notes. The aftertaste of dark malt and a spiced touch completes this full-bodied, sweet and slightly spiced delicacy."
These are dark, malty, yeasty strong ales in the Trappist tradition, but produced (mainly) by secular brewers. Dubbels range between 6.5-8% abv, and have a dark brown, cloudy colour, and a palate mixing malt, a lush fruitiness, and yeast. They are typically bottle-conditioned.
