3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
[My bottle (750ml) shared with HogTownHarry, GregClow, jercraigs & mabel] Pours a very dark amber-brown with an average size diminishing frothy white head. Aroma is quite fruity along with Belgian yeast, light spices and a hint of chocolate. Malty and fruity flavour along with light spices. Slightly over-carbonated. Medium bodied. Good beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
2014-11-06. Very dark brown body with a nice foamy tan head. 3+ Aroma is pleasant, sort of anise like notes, muted spice. Flavour is similar. Lightly herbal character over dark malt, mild Belgian yeast character below. Average plus bodied palate, soft effervescent carbonation. 3++ Better than my notes for it unfortunately, it is pretty solid but not does not particularly differentiate itself from other Unibroue offerings. It is very reminiscent of Terrible or Trois Pistoles. Bottle shared by Blankboy

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasted on 2/8/14 from a bottle at the hotel after the RBWG Grand Tasting. Pours clear dark amber with a thick tan head that slowly recedes to bubbly lace. The nose is raisin, spicy belgian yeast, dark caramel bread malt, and plenty of baking spice. The flavor is more spice from both the yeast and of the baking variety with somewhat sweet raisin and dark caramel malt underlying. The body is hard to ascertain because of the massive amount of carbonation with a long spicy yeast and baking spice finish.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle: This one pours a somewhat dark ruby color. There was quite a bit of a tan head on it. It lingers and left some lacing. This one has a nice nose. Spicy, yeasty, fair amount of sweet malts. Some fruity notes also, as well as some clove. The taste is very good. Bready, sweet Belgian malts, some spices, fruit notes. Another solid Belgian style beer form Unibroue.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Flaske: Sortbrun uklar øl med et kæmpe skumhoved. Nellike og sødlig malt i duften med et let metallisk præg. Smagen er hvinende sød, alt for meget. Igen en smule nellike og metallen er der også. Ikke så god.
