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.

33cl bottle. The brewer states: Black and Fierce. And so it is. A strong coffee beer of high alcohol percentage, with great taste. Bitterness and sugary sweetness combined in a perfect caramel, chocolate ale.

Aroma of coffee and chocolate, longlasting taste of chocolate, going over to coffee and a bit of caramel. Very nice dark color and creme colored head. Excellent complex beer.

jcr (2527) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - FEB 26, 2015
Bottle. Deep brown body with a frothy brown head, mostly lasting. Aroma of molasses, roasted grain, char. Notes of overripe fruit, plum, anise, alcohol. The flavor is heavily sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium to full body, velvety texture turning syrupy in the finish, lively carbonation. A bit muddled. Tastes of roasted malts, licorice, dark chocolate. Didnt especially like this at first sip, but thought better of it by the end of the glass.

Vaiz (4190) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - FEB 12, 2015
Bottle at home. Black pour, creamy tan head. Aroma is spicy, roasted, sugary malts, licorice, bread and some alcohol. Flavor is quite bitter, sweet sugary malts, licorice and with a smooth texture. Quite heavy brew, slightly messy.

11.2oz bottle. Really digging this one. Opened with a gush, beware. Opaque brown-burgundy body. Creamy, steady beige head. Some vinous sour over sweet, somehow delicate chocolate malt tones. Perfect balance between the sour tones and the deep amber chocolate malts. It almost smells like Rodenbach..wonder if it is just infected? The vinous nature of the sour yeast cuts through the deep malts, making this quite drinkable to me. Very nice beer, one I will certainly revisit....at the same time this could be infected...

Slightly hazy dark brown pour with slowly dissipating tan head. Clear dark chocolate and coffee nose and some beautiful roasted malts. Coffee and licorice for taste, pretty explosive flavors there. Again the dark malts and chocolate appear. Medium bodied with a nice bubbly carbonation. Alcohol is nicely hidden. Well made brew. Better than expected!

leghorn99 (211) - Livorno, ITALY - JAN 7, 2015
Il colore marrone scuro, schiuma totalmente assente. Al naso risulta subito dolce, malto, caramello, frutti scuri e liquirizia, con aromi che ricordano del vino liquoroso. In bocca abbiamo conferma di quanto percepito al naso: decisamente dolce e sciropposa. Gusto di frutta scura (prugne, uva passa, more, mirtilli), porta alla mente liquore alle ciliegie; carbonazione assente, finale asciutto.

pivnizub (10025) - Bochum, Porř, GERMANY - JAN 3, 2015
Bottle:Deep ruby-amber coloured, a bit unclear, medium-sized tanned head; sweet roasty-bready nose with traces of molasses in the Background, sweet dried fruits as well; moderate to solid sweet and bitter flavour, medium to full bodied; lingering fruity and roasty-malty finish, some bitterness, some alcohol, too, in the aftertaste. Pleasant and easy-drinking - regarding the ABV - strong ale...

It poured a dark brown color with an off-white head. The aroma was of malts, caramel, licorice and fruits. The taste was sweet and malty with some caramel, licorice, slight warming alcohol, plumbs and raisins. Good stuff.
