3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The first beer made by Zeven Zonden but brewed at Gulden Spoor, referring to gluttony as the first of the seven sins, hence the name of the beer company. Creamy, pale beige, thick head, dark brown colour approaching black; not too strong aroma, some coffee, bitter chocolate, dates, blackcurrant, peat. Soft and creamy palate with dark and candied fruits, smoky touch, finishing in a roasted bitterness more reminiscent of bitter chocolate than of the usual coffee. Interesting.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark beer. nose: spices, too complex, too overwhelming, alcohol perfume, too much of the good. mint? taste: syrup, a lot of alchol, very "thick on the tongue". second thoughts, "Gula"? Greed? Mabye this beer is indeed "Gula". And is it right where it should be? Over the edge, hmmm, have to think about it. On a blind tasting this would really fall through.

Slightly hazy dark brown color with a small off-white head that keeps a lacing for a long time. Aroma of dark fruits, wood, liquor and honey. Taste is very sweet like honey and liquor. Low carbonation and full body with a mellow sugary finish.

4.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Beautiful pour. Lacks carbonation and hence no head. Malty, sweet aromas with a strong hoppy finish. Very flat beer and feels almost juice like, if not for the malty flavors.
9/10 I would def order and try the beer again.

Zeer donkerbruin, troebel bier met een mokka schuimkraag. Aroma van gebrande mouten, caramel, alcohol, maar overheersend suiker. Smaak is te zoet. Zacht en vol in de mond, fijn palet.

Brune foncée légèrement rougeâtre, effervescence moyenne, mousse beige tombe rapidement. Principalement maltée mais trop d’épices (vanille et clous de girofle) et surtout beaucoup trop sucrée!

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle @ weekly tasting. Dark red-brown color, virtually no head. Aroma has quite a lot of herbs and sweetness. Taste lightly malts, sweetness, lots of herbs or spices. Average to medium body, soft carbonation. Not my thing.
