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.

oh6gdx (25453) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 4, 2015
Bottled (from Willems, Grobbendonk). More or less pitch black colour with a mediumsized beigeish brown head. Aroma is liquorice, spices, alcohol. Flavour is quite similar, with some ripe fruits and dark berries as well. Wellbalanced and quite a pleasant surprise. Almost an imperial stout meeting a kind of Belgian strong "donker".

Poured a deep brown color with aromas of light earth, anise, some yeast and a touch of coffee. Flavors are light earth, anidmse, dried dark fruit, and some earth. OK overall.

Icedwarf (1303) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - JUN 28, 2015
Zwart bier met schuim. Smaak is krachtig, alcohol, iets van drop en anijs, licht bitter. Erg goed bier wat helaas iets te "dun" overkomt, anders was mijn waardering nog hoger geweest. Smaak bljift lang hangen.

McWorta (1522) - LUXEMBOURG - JUN 24, 2015
Dark brown clear colour with a yellow ginger head. Aromas of sour wine notes and metal notes as well as some maltyness arise. Light carbonation, watery texture and a medium body offer flavours of wine, spices and some wood. Finish is medium and gives herbal impressions.

Muggus69 (2138) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - JUN 8, 2015
330mL bottle from International Beer Collector Thick looking near-black body, holds a dense tan head. Quite a rich, caramelised aroma; roast nuts, treacle, sultana, vinous black fruits, prunes, savoury spice. Dense body, shows its strength, creamy, velvety texture, rather nice on the palate. More of that deep rich caramelised character on the body - date, prune, sultana, dark toffee, nutty, biscuity malts, earthy spice. Warming, inviting finish. Really good, lovely texture, good flavour & balance.

Shark_Pants (612) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 3, 2015
Deep, dark black colour with billowing frothy tan head that slowly dissipates, leaving nice lacing. Strong maltiness in the aroma, with a hint of coffee and dark chocolate. Some astringency in the smell too. The taste has milk chocolate, coffee, molasses, candi sugar, dates and some lightly tart cherries. Medium bodied, a bit overly carbonated and the high acidity doesn’t really work with the warming booze. Showed some promise but ultimately a bit disappointing.
