sebletitje (6700) - Enghien, - MAY 6, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 7, 2013 33cl bottle split with 77ships and Man Ki. BB 12/2015. Brune foncée, col léger beige. Arôme est malté, grillé assez fleuri avec ce bouquet rappelant les herbes de montagne. Palais est ici aussi assez agréable, alternant note sucrée-caramélisée, malt grillé, herbacé médicinal pouvant porter sur une liqueur aux herbes de montagne. Pointe de réglisse pour un final ne laissant pas croire que la bière titre 11%.

Alengrin (1750) - 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.

beertholomeus (791) - California, USA - JUN 24, 2014
Pours a dark reddish brown with a khaki head. Sweet malt, caramel, sugar, yeast, toffee and funk aroma. Caramel, sweet malt, dark fruit, molasses, sugar, yeast, toffee, toast and toast flavors. Medium full body with a sweet taste and a sugar, caramel and malt finish.

Trappist1 (495) - Diest, BELGIUM - APR 22, 2014
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.

Russo (1685) - Campinas, BRAZIL - APR 17, 2014
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.

iRavali (37) - Delaware, USA - MAR 22, 2014
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Shared with Wim at his home. Brown colored beer with small white head and no carbonation visible. Spicy malty aroma. Medium sparkling palate. Finish is sweet spicy sugar hinted ending bitter with some coffee hints. Nice!

paulvanpelt (333) - Reusel, NETHERLANDS - JAN 15, 2014
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.

EddyBeer1 (883) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JAN 5, 2014
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!

Benzai (8246) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - DEC 12, 2013
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.
