Zwart & Straf Winterbier
Kleveretien: De tien slaat zowel op het alcoholgehalte als op het 10-jarig bestaan van onze bierproefclub "Orde van de zatte Mus". De ontwikkeling van dit bier is een zware bevalling geworden. In totaal hebben we acht proefbrouwsels gemaakt in onze hobbybrouwerij alvorens we pas echt tevreden konden zijn over het resultaat. Kleveretien is bijna zwart, maar heeft weinig tot niets van een stout. De smaak is overwegend kruidig met een toets van drop (steranijs), caramel en donker fruit. Op het einde komt de alcoholwarmte meer naar boven.

330ml bottle bought at Craftissmo in Tsim Sha Tsui East.

Looks: Translucent deep ruby red with a thin traces of dirt-like yeast sediments; Half finger head and crumpety light beige foam which lasts for 2 minutes; Very good sticky lacing with slight carbonation.

Aroma: Fragrant and sweet rich dark malt, with strong caramel, toffee, coffee, strong cream, dark fruits, sugar, very light alcohol, light bread, strong Bel yeast and thin grass.

Taste: Mid to strong sweet dark malt, with caramel, toffee, creamed coffee, moderate alcohol, very light liquorices, strong sugar, Bel yeast, herbs, light lemon and light bitter hops.

Body: Full body. Quite thick and creamy palate.

Mouth Feel: Fairly good dark maltyness in a silky smooth background. Lots of creamy coffee and sweet alcohol, feels a bit likes a coffee liqueur. Strong caramel and toffee. Notable sweetness but refreshing and not cloying. Very Bel yeasty, herbal and light liquorices with light lemon to round. Nothing overpowering and very neat!

Hoppiness: Thin grass in nose. Light lemon and herbal grass in taste; Bitterness from herbs and liquorices for an abrupt, fair astringent sweet coffee finish.

After Taste: Slightly dry. Creamy and sweet boozy to mouth.

Comments: A decent take on Coffee-ish dark ale, Belgian style. Not in the same league as Struise Pannepot, as this one lacks the spicy fruity characters of the former, or the rich creaminess of Chimay Blue. It has done enough for my taste, but not quite to the next level. Very good but not great.

frrebora (8) - ALESSANDRIA, ITALY - MAR 23, 2016 does not count
Poca schiuma, gradazione alcoolica corretta, sentori di liquirizia, lieve caffe, frutta secca. Ottima con formaggi, non eccessivamente saporiti.

Bottle @home with Erik. One finger dark brown clear. Alcoholic roasted coffee toasted. Strong alcoholic but well hidden. Dry but with hint of sweetness. Great imperial Belgian ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Color marrone chiaro con densa schiuma. Al naso e al palato, malto, frutta secca e liquirizia. Carbonatazione forse un po’ eccessiva.

alteregoo (809) - POLAND - FEB 9, 2016
Piana sycząca, nietrwała, po otwarciu niewielki gaszing. Barwa ciemno brązowa, burgundowa. Aromat głównie suszonych i kandyzowanych owoców, karmelu, marshmallow, likieru. Smak słodki, ziołowy, są ciemne owoce, karmel i syrop Tussipect. Goryczka niewielka, ziołowa, lekko melisowo-miętowy posmak. Półpełne w odbiorze, wyklejające choć nie gęste. Nagazowanie wysokie, musujące w ustach. Alkohol nieco zbyt mocno wyczuwalny.
Wybitnie deserowe piwo. Ogólnie w aromacie jest fajnie, w smaku niby ok, ale na dłuższą metę trunek dość męczący, mocno ziołowy, zbyt przypominający Amol pomieszany ze słodkim syropem na kaszel, no i przegazowany.

Vells (1429) - Rīga, Latvija, LATVIA - JAN 26, 2016
Dark sided Belgian strong, quite simple, but enjoyable. Moderate to light roasted malts, lovely berry like dark fruits, light licorice. Moderate sweet with moderate to light malty bitterness. Bit messy but decent, somewhat between stout and quad.
