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.

Lectvay (191) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 2, 2014
Bottle from Rare Beer Club. Looks like cola with a generous tan head. Nose is licorice and floral yeastiness. Tastes sweet and spicy, rich and thick, delicious, anise is there but tasteful. Very nice!

DocJitsu (1944) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - APR 1, 2014
Pours a very dark, cola brown with a large, long-retaining, sudsy, tan head. Chocolate, coffee, and seltzer nose. A pretty flat, lifeless mouthfeel. A lot of the same notes in the aromas are noted in the flavors; just in more vibrancy. Plus, prune and raisin come through boldly. Some cherry tartness is noted on the edges of the tongue.

jmm635 (1004) - Havertown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 18, 2014
Poured a clear, medium brown color with almost no head. Overall, too sweet in my opinion. Aroma of rich caramel malt, molasses, and raisins. Flavor was quite sweet without my bitterness for balance. Drinks pretty smooth for 10% abv and hides it well.

Bire superbe de Het Nest brasse chez De Schelde, titre 10 % abv, avec 45 EBU et 24 plato. Recette originale avec des herbes, qui a fait lobjet de 8 brassins dessai avant adoption et je crois que jaurais choisi le mme brassin mais je ntais pas l!! Couleur brun marron trs fonc, et roux fonc en transparence. Clart opaque. Bulles fines en colonne au centre, magnifique. Mousse beige crmeuse qui tient 3 ou 4 mm, superbe. Armes de grand cru St Emilion, fruits mrs, levure, pain frais encore chaud. 1re bouche souple sur du caf dlicat, du chocolat et de lanis toil. Arrire-bouche assez pleine, bien nuance, pice. 2me sur de la prune, du malt noir, bl noir, herbes aromatiques. Arrire-bouche superbe. 3me avec des nuances trs nobles, avec du malt/houblon/pices. Arrire-bouche sur du malt grill, des aromates. La longueur est en quilibre total, bien fondue, avec une texture trs souple, et des fruits noirs, de lanis trs fin. La levure est souple, fine, quasi une de quadruple. Lalcool est parfait, magnifique soutien aux saveurs. La finale est de velours, avec des nuances trs riches. CONCLUSION: parfait porter de trs grande classe, mais class simplement en strong ale sur le site, alors que la finale est proche de la quadruple . De toute faon, les mots sont peu de choses ct des saveurs. Alors, que dire des typologies ...

solidfunk (8639) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JAN 17, 2014
Great stuff. Pours dark brown with good head and lacing. Aroma of Belgian yeast with florals, some raisin and a dash of hay. A light dose of citrus and apricot floating around, with hints of smoke. Nicely balanced - certainly hides the alcohol well. Soft carbonation. Bottle.

yngwie (16973) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 31, 2013
Bottle. It pours an almost clear body, brown in color and with a small, dense, beige head. The aroma has a faint touch of cellar and alcohol, with dried fruits and caramel. Quite weak, and that goes for the flavor too. Some roasted hints and chocolate, with the alchohol well hidden. The star anise is luckily pretty subdued. Some bitterness towards the end. Full body, with a soft carbonation level. A bit short finish. Overall, a pretty decent one, not bad at all. 131231
