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.

sayravai (4708) - Helsinki, - AUG 24, 2012
(Bottled) Very dark brown with a small, mostly fading, lightly lacy head. Aroma of roasted malt, dried fruit, anise and licorice, warming alcohol notes. Flavor has lots of anise with lightly roasted, sweetish maltiness. Gets a medicinal carbon feel with yeast poured in. Medium to full body, soft CO2, warming but hides the alcohol. Quite simple brew, something between an Imperial Porter and a Quadrupel. 6446

Tap @ Gastropub Tuulensuu.
Pours dark brown color with a large head. Aroma is very spicy and malty with caramel sweetness, dried fruits, also some chocolaty notes, bready. Creamy smooth chocolaty and bready flavor with subtle spice notes, dried fruits, some earthy tones and very faint wooden tones. Pleasant, alcohol deceptively well hidden.

Belmont Party Supply / Dayton OH --- Aroma of malt and sweet yeast. Nearly opaque brown / black color, deep tan head that stays at 1", lace cobwebs. Taste is rich malt that grows more caramel-y as it moves through a medium carbonated swallow, then dark chocolate on the way to a finish that has only a hint of hops. Big and malty, but not heavy in the belly. The alcohol is not strong. A really memorable full-bodied Belgian Strong. I’d buy it again.

Donker (bijna zwart) met fijne schuimkraag. Beetje zurig aroma (herfstbladeren). Smaken van toffee, mokka, licht zurig. Licht zoetige afdronk. Niet de beste van Het Nest maar meer dan behoorlijk.

MelvinKalksma (933) - UTRECHT, NETHERLANDS - JUL 16, 2016

Slight/medium aroma of malts, caramel, Belgian yeast, dried fruit and liquorice.

Turbid/opaque ruby/dark brown beer with heavy yeast and with a slight/medium beige head.

Medium/heavy sweet with malts, caramel, Belgian yeast, dried fruit and liquorice.

This beer is intense, complex and balanced. The aroma is rather weak however and the palate could have been better. The flavour is great despite all this!

dutchbeerpages (2263) - Wilnis, NETHERLANDS - JUL 8, 2016
Just a little too sweet but nice and warming. Flavors of overripe prunes and raisins. Maybe mid july isn’t the best time of year to drink this, but again they have shown they know how to brew. Bottle from De Zwart in Wilnis.

Holmen1 (4807) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JUN 13, 2016
Flaske fra Belgisk Bryg, hjemme om kvelden etter mitt siste personalmøte før pensjonismen: brunsvart med et rødlig skjær. Bæraktig, vinøs og fyldig aroma og smak med svisker, rosiner, fiken, brøddeig, brunsukker, bjørnebær, ville bringebær, gule epler, lakris og et lite snev av stjerneanis. Kompleks, delikat, saftig, fyldig og samtidig elegant sverer den bekymringsløst og faretruende lett over (under?) ganen. På innkjøpslisten for neste handletur til Emdrup Mosevej! (Mange tyrkkleifer og intens korrekturlesing før jeg kunne trykke Enter.)
