Bottle shared. Pours near black with a beige head. Aroma of roast, dark fruits, coffee, toffee, leather, marzipan, licorice and dark chocolate. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet and bitter with a big marzipan/licorice/dark chocolate palate. Light full bodied with soft carbonation. Like a very strange Belgian RIS.

Pas seulement une belgian strong ale … mais un imperial stout en bonne et due forme, de 10 % abv, réalisé par Hugel au Gulden Spoor pour les Zeven Zonden. Couleur noir intense et opaque. Mousse qui forme un fin nappage beige foncé. Arômes de superbe de malt torréfié, malt à whisky, épices indiennes fines, bois de santal en arrière. 1ère bouche souple sur du café, pointe de garrigue et muscat. Arrière-bouche sur le malt torréfié, avec un peu de tourbe. 2ème au goût très plein sur du malt, houblon, fruits noirs , avec une pointe de fruits exotiques discrète. Arrière-bouche qui dégage un imperceptible quelque chose de plus … chocolaté. 3ème bouche qui est un délice pur, avec bois, fruits et arabica. Arrière-bouche longue, fine, remarquable. La longueur avance nettement sur le fût, mais léger (si l’on peut dire … vu les 10 % abv!!). Jambes purement lisses. Levure forte, terreuse, un vrai caractère. Alcool magnifique, progressif, très beau travail. Finale au superbe fondu. CONCLUSION : très grand imperial stout, bien au-delà d’une belgian strong ale … Très grand œuvre, superbe réalisation, merveilleux breuvage. Pas seulement un des sept péchés capitaux, mais un péché capiteux ...

Bottle @benzai. Pitch black with a small light brown head. Smells roasty, liquorice, sweet. Mostly liquorice though, which i’m not too excited about. Tastes wiebertjes, roasty, chocolate, liquorice, dark chocolate. Full body, nice carbo. Too bad i didn’t like the smell too much.

Benzai (10175) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - APR 24, 2014
Bottle shared by Thonpson @ weekly tasting. Very dark brown to black color, average sized brown head that lasts for a decent while. Aroma and taste malts, lightly roasty, lightly alcohol, liquorice, a hint of dark chocolate and nicely bitter. Full body, medium to full carbonation. Well I must say I’m quite impressed by this beer. Very well done.
