Here we have Grimbergen Winter from Alken Maes brewery standing at 6.5%.
Well here we have the second to last beer of this years advent calendar and the last live review for this year. As tomorrow I’ll be in london for new years and I’ll be taking the last one with me.
The aroma has a sweetness to it, having trouble placing exactly what, also a little berry like. The taste isnt as complex as I expect from a winter special. It has notes of a caramel, also a slight bitterness and the sweetness of the aroma is really missing in the taste. The texture is quite light for a dark beer, not a lot of carbonation and is not clingy. The aftertaste is very minimal and if anything ever so slighty watery. Really thought that there would be more to this, not a good beer at all really. Its simple but not tasty or balanced.
Scott put up his most interested anime for winter 2013 so I might as well be a copycat (but for my own reasons).
I’m going to take this nicely placed opportunity to mention that if you want more of mine and other anime based opinions then check out the Otaku News Podcast, which I happen to co-host. It’s at http://www.otakunews.com/ and just search for podcast if it isnt on the main page.
And so, onto the shows
Puchimas – a rather odd version of Idolmaster. So far it seems there is a new episode everyday. It involves the normal members of the anime, dealing with super deformed versions of themselves. If you dont know the characters from either the game or the anime then this will make no sense.
Nekomonogatari Kuro – this is how the Japanese got to see in the New Year. I am so jealous! More in the -monogatari series, which I can’t fault.
Mangirl – girls trying to run their own manga anthology. So far, so interesting.
Ore no Kanojo to Osananajimi – will try to watch as its by A-1 and they have done a lot of stuff I like
Sasami@Ganbaranai – I’m certainly trying this as its by Shaft
Senran Kagura – as far as I know its a show about pervy ninjas. Sounds good so far!
Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai NEXT – really enjoyed the first series, [Colin makes the far out there prediction that by the end of the season the main guy wont have picked a girl]
Vivid Red Operation – this combines A-1 and the director of Strike Witches, so I am hopeful of a good show,
Minami-ke Tadaima – More from the Minami household 🙂 I AM BOSS!
Tamako Market – its KyoAni so I will watch
