Unique and limited edition, this Belgian style ale is crafted once a year as a special treat for those of you who appreciate flavorful, bottle-conditioned ale with character. This years vintage: a rich, dark and full-bodied ale with a fine and generous coffee-colored, beige foam. Its ready to enjoy right away and you may also wish to cellar a few bottles. It will evolve interestingly well, developing more complex flavors as the years go by.

Great quality with an amazing price of 6$ a bottle comparable to a quad like Chimay...deep dark fruit notes...yummy

Beachmaster (269) - Oklahoma, USA - FEB 10, 2014
22 oz bomber. Pours a deep mahogany color with a big off-white head that slowly fades. Nose is dark fruit and caramel. Taste is full-bodied with toffee and plum notes. Just delicious. Another winner from Unibroue.

UPDATED: DEC 27, 2014 Strong spicy aromas with prune and plum notes. Very dark coffee color with a thick, never-dissipating, moussey tan head. Very sweet fruity flavors with noticeable alcohol. Light bodied.

Poured into an Imperial Pint Glass. Great and big ale. A good dose of slightly smoky malts. A bit of sweetness. A good mouthful from beginning to end. BTW, holds up very well, and a good compliment to spicy food/Sriracha.

Leighton (15381) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2014
Bottle shared late night RBWG. Pours clear brown with a tan cream head. Tasty stuff, lightly herbal, a bit of toffee, rich bread, some Belgian yeast. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet finish, toasted malts, modest toffee. Tasty.

Taster at RBWG 2014 grand tasting - thanks to the person who shared this! Hazy dark brown amber red color. Thin khaki head. Good dark fruity, red tropical aroma. Some creme. Caramel malt. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Moderate sweet taste, lightly spicy. Solid stuff.

Bottle from tjs. Another solid vintage ale. Great malt presence w/a very nice dry finish. Spice, esters, & phenols marry well & the 9% abv isnt apparent at all. Unibrou via tjs.

Braudog (6069) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - FEB 5, 2014
Bottle, caged and corked. Deep and rosy with ample head. This has a rich, sugary aroma. This drinks with an evident alcohol burn, the flavor profile almost hints at pumpkin pie -- nutmeg and cinnamon a definite component. Rich and thick. Good, but not at all what I expected. (#5426, 2/5/2014)

Stampion (190) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 25, 2014
Pours dark red, almost black with a ridiculous tall head that takes its time. Tastes sweet, with a yeast, raisin and cherry notes. Mildly spiced with a touch of nutmeg and black pepper. Really good. I'll be getting the 2014 version next year. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
