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.

CacheManyHose (589) - HONG KONG - DEC 19, 2015
Drank with Matt after the Hungry Ghosts' last gig. Dark hazy maple red-brown, medium creamy tan head with small fizziness, spotty legs. Smells of moderate biscuity dark malt and clove, light spice and banana, yeast, moderate grassy hop that balances the Belgian flavours, some cola. Taste is orange, moderate malt, spice, dry and somewhat stony finish. Somewhat thin. Body is medium, slick, herbal/mint, gentle spice, lightly lemony malty finish. Booze well hidden. Yeasty Belgian maltiness but not too heavily so, some grassy crisp bitterness to balance.

HKdIPA (678) - HONG KONG - DEC 19, 2015
Bottle from Craftissimo at home after final Hungry Ghosts show. Dark brown nutty pour - very Belgian-looking. Persistent thin tan head. Aroma is Belgian-y, dubbel/quadrupel-y mix of dark fruit and spice though not too much. Some toffee too. Taste is similar but slightly hoppier and more herbal. Not too heavy on the palate. Biscuit malt and boozy warmth on the finish. Warmth lasts. Not my style still but this isn't bad.

matbli (255) - Poznań, POLAND - DEC 10, 2015
Bottle, strong gashing after opening the bottle - not as strong as in the BA version but still some small explosion. Pours brown with red reflexes and a very high buy also very thin and fast falling head. In aroma there is a mix of a belgian ale and a stout with bretty barnyard notes, a lot of, licorice, apricots, caramel but also some chocolate and hint of coffee. Taste is nicely balanced with a strong foreground sweetness and a quite long roast bitterness. A bit to high carbonation, but quite nice drinkable.

Hopverdju (671) - BELGIUM - DEC 6, 2015
Zwart bier met beige schuim en grote bellen. Geur: geroosterde mout, rozijnen, en iets wat me doet denken aan een zachte single malt met een aards tintje als een Singleton 12. Smaak: zoetig, kandij en een fruitig zuurtje. Redelijk wat koolzuur wat het goed drinkbaar maakt. Het fruitig zuurtje met wat zoetigheid blijft in de afdronk. Lekker degustatiebier, gelukkig noemen ze het geen stout.

de_belg (35) - - OCT 20, 2015
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2016 Kruidig, caramel, koffie en anijs in de nasmaak. Smaak spreidt zich geleidelijk uit over de tong met warme nadronk. Heerlijk mondgevoel! Teveel gecarboneerd, hoog alcoholpercentage komt teveel tot uiting in geur.
