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.

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 ...

Lukaduke (3098) - Gray, Maine, USA - DEC 26, 2012
Pours a deep mahogany color with an eggshell three finger head. Aromas are well balanced earthy herbal spice, rich dark fruit, burnt brown sugar and a nice subtle touch of caramel. On the palate its soft and inviting with nice balance between the herbal spices and sweet burnt sugars. A true quad with great mouthfeel and a deep lingering finish ! Must get more of this one.

frrebora (9) - ALESSANDRIA, ITALY - MAR 23, 2016 does not count
Poca schiuma, gradazione alcoolica corretta, sentori di liquirizia, lieve caffe, frutta secca. Ottima con formaggi, non eccessivamente saporiti.

Lore (2430) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 15, 2016
dark reddish brown colour, one inch creamybeige-ish head; aroma of dried plum and figs, anise, cocoa powder, earthy and floral notes; taste of dried plum, raisins, anise, some chocolate apple and herbal liqueur; almost like a quadrupel - really good!

Icedwarf (1424) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - JUN 28, 2015
Zwart bier met schuim. Smaak is krachtig, alcohol, iets van drop en anijs, licht bitter. Erg goed bier wat helaas iets te "dun" overkomt, anders was mijn waardering nog hoger geweest. Smaak bljift lang hangen.

Color marrone chiaro con densa schiuma. Al naso e al palato, malto, frutta secca e liquirizia. Carbonatazione forse un po eccessiva.

Bottle, bought @ Willems, Grobbendonk.
Pours deep brown chestnut with a firm, staying, creamy, beige head. Fine lacing. Aroma is lovely, plums, port, sherry, chocolate, sweet liqourice, light black currant. Medium carbonation, fine creamy and dry mouthfeel. Flavour has good sweetness at first, estery, plums, raisins, Belgian sugar, chocolate. Dry, dusty and quite bitter cocoa-notes in the finish. Mildly warming. Lovely.

Countbeer (6334) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, 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.
