COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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, borderline stout. Cuivrée, col épais beige. Arôme malt grillé, léger pointe de chocolat et fruits noirs. En bouche, malt grillé, pointe de fumé et caramel. Levure et fruits noirs avec en retrait un houblon laissant une amertume discrète avec une touche d’épice. Le tout reste dans un style prononcé malté avec des fruits noirs qui viennent se mélanger au tout.

presario (4608) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 26, 2011
Bottle. Very very dark brown with a thick coating of foam overtop the beer and the side of the glass. Thick malt aroma like an ABT with a hint of chocolate. Palate is thick with a dustiness to it. Alcohol comes through as a slowly rising presence from front to back and into the aftertaste and is very well balanced. The taste has a bit of a wine character to it with dark almost smokey tobacco taste. A beer for cigars? Tasty but am I wrong to think a big beer should have a little more dancing or depth?

Countbeer (4369) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - DEC 20, 2011
Bottle: Medium vast and slow disappearing light brown head on top of an almost completely black beer (just a tiny dark brown shine on the edges). Smells roasted malts, raisin, barley, spices, anice, brown sugars, oatmeal. Taste is a nice mix of roasted malts, sweet like fruit: raisin, prunes and brown sugars, coffee comes more through together with a nice bitterness, where the bitterness takes gently over. Also notes of spices, some grains, hint of something like sweet soya and a light sharpness but well balanced and disappears easily into the depths of this beer. Not that it is that deep, but it is good in taste! A nice and good bitterness in the aftertaste with some hints of anice, roasted malts and herbs like grass. Low to medium carbo, soft mouthfeel, medium to full body and a (light) creamy texture. I hate the term Belgian strong ale for this one! I like this beer.

mike_77 (3027) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 11, 2011
Aroma is a bit sweet and spicy. The flavour is sweet with some dark fruits at first then aniseed and a hint of caramel in the finish. Texture is thick and oily. Reminds me of Black Jack sweets.
