Dit tweede bier van Zeven Zonden is heel wat anders dan Luxuria! Ik proefde een zeer verse of jonge en oudere versie naast elkaar. Donkerbruine kleur. De zeer jonge versie: Geur: kruidige geur, wat menthol? Na wat tijd en zuurstof nootjes. Smaak: Coca cola snoepjes! Fruitig, zoet, fruitig. Volmondig. Zoete afdronk. De bijna 3 jaar oude versie: Geur: zoetig, sinaas, citroenmelisse? En die zeer prikelende kruidige geur menthol? Smaak: zoet, paters of zwarte bessen / cassis. Volmondig. Zoete afdronk.

ddemmingjr (791) - Chagrin Falls, Ohio, USA - FEB 10, 2015
Bottle at dad's - pours cloudy deep burgundy with silky, khaki head that persists. Nose is vinous, oaky and some dark fruits and some estery notes. Flavor profile very vinous, oak, dark fruits, hybrid Flemish red with some estery notes along with caramel malt body. Found this to be solid ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bière brune spéciale de 10 % abv, et non 11,5 % comme indiqué sur le site aujourd’hui. Mon exemplaire a été brassé en 2013. Orientée sur les épices, dont le réglisse. L’objectif du brasseur est donc, selon le nom de la bière, de symboliser la gourmandise. Couleur marron très foncé. Clarté nette. Mousse qui est un nappage fin beige. Arômes de vinaigre de vin, strepsils, tarte aux framboises très avancée, pointe de réglisse. 1ère bouche souple à la belle entame sur la réglisse, les boules violettes de jadis à l’anis. Arrière-bouche de grande délicatesse. 2ème où l’anis est très délicat, ce qui est toujours favorable. Arrière-bouche très construite. 3ème où les saveurs évoluent doucement vers un cognac. Arrière-bouche complexe, délicate. Longueur va sur le liquoreux en douceur, avec toujours les pointes d’anis étoilé. Jambes lisses. Levure douce, fine, très belle veine. Alcool très progressif (slowly but surely...). Finale douce et fine. CONCLUSION : moi qui ne suis pas un grand partisan de l’anis dans la bière, je trouve cette bière très agréable, parce que très nuancée sur la longueur. Seul le nez de départ la pénalise quelque peu.

Alengrin (3865) - BELGIUM - AUG 20, 2014
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.
