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.

3fourths (9296) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 8, 2014
Plum and cola and molasses, salty brine and char. The licorice / anise character is well integrated. Medium-full body, medium carbonation, sweet front and middle, medium acid, medium to low bitterness. Malt is somewhat simple caramel syrup, and the molasses and vegemite resemblance is there for me but its not off-putting. Warming alcohol and an airy, bubbly, bitter finish. Good shape, nicely carbonated and balanced well, but not the most expressive malt and yeast.

Ernest (7554) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 8, 2014
Head is initially large, frothy/fizzy, brown, mostly lasting. Body is dark brown to black. Aroma is moderately to heavily malty (chocolate syrup, molasses, roasted grain), with notes of prune, date, burnt honey, fennel/anise, clove, alcohol. Flavor is heavily sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Full body, syrupy/velvety texture, lively carbonation, moderately to heavily alcoholic. A pretty good rendition...I wish there was more brightness in the nose, though...its just too heavy brown-fruity without much to soften and make it pop. Good flavor balance for the style, but still no rocking me hard there either. Good but not great.

Aroma of dark malt, bread, caramel, dried fruits, sugar, liquorice, herbs, some chocolate. Flavour is quite sweet, some alcohol, with a chocolate sweet finish. Not my kind of beer, but well crafted for the style.
