COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Launched to celebrate Unibroue's 11th Anniversary, 11 has a rich aroma reminiscent of ripe fruit and fig, and is accompanied by a delicate spicy after note. The taste is complex and its body more than generous. This unique strong beer is warm and intriguing whilst remaining smooth and delicate. With its 11% Alcohol, "11" is the highest alcohol content beer in Quebec. Produced in limited quantity and sold for a very minimal price for its quality, only about 6000 cases of this special brew will be sold.

750, corked and baled. thanks, dany! so stoked about this. pours a deeply hazy, unusual, and very pretty pale yellow. no head, no lace. huuuuge raisin and fig nose. other light sweet touches in there as well, but its all about those two notes. sticky sweet flat body. creamy raisin, fig, toffee, and butterscotch mid palate, complemented well by a soft tawny port undertone. faintest hint of carb at the end, joined by some warming alcohol. an attractive big belgian thats benefitted from the cellar in its own sweet way.

Bottle from a trade with Dickinsonbeer. Thanks Paul! Aroma is very yeasty but smooth - none of that spent grain/wheat sharpness that I don’t like: a fruity yeast, just a bit plain. Nice even golden color with a fat white head. Flavor is not very yeasty at all: sweet wheat, apple, that grape flavor that many Trappist quads have, brown sugar, even a faint roast. Very full and flavorful.

rederic (2983) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 10, 2009
750ml bottle, bottled 12/12/02, tasted on december, hazy amber-orangeish hue, with an off white head, yeasty, fruity, honeyed pale malt nose with some mild peachy, apricot, candied orange peel, marmalade esters, with a faint spicy accent, within a warming aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a yeasty, honeyed pale malt, fruity character of marmalade, candied orange, tangerine peels, and dried apricot, peach flavors, with a honeyish mellow, velvety warmth mouthfeel, leading towards a honeyish candyish, fruity, warming finish. This one aged very well.

grandgenie (259) - gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 8, 2009
Dégusté avec french tickler le 16 novembre 2006. Bouteille vieilli de mon cellier. Dégusté dans un verre tulipe. De couleur or ambré, d’apparence crémeuse avec un beau collet d’épaisseur moyenne. Sensation de crême, d’alcool et goût de fruit et de canneberge en arrière plan.Une senteur de pain, de pomme, de poire, de prune, de cuir, de cassis et d’épices madérisés.On parle içi d’équilibre et de perfection, de beau souvenir et soirées de dégustations.

750ml bottle. Pours a slightly hazed burnt orange color with zero head. Tons of sweet candied dark fruits and malt on the nose. Flavor was sweet with malt and some baking spices. Brew was medium/ full in body. A damn good Belgian Ale.

Bottle, at BA Throwdown #2. Pours a golden reddish color, creamy lacing, nice head. Bright cider nose, Belgian yeast, some mellow notes. Creamy notes of vanilla and caramel. Some interesting creamy maltiness, with lots of wheat. Drinkable, held up very well, very good.

sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 4, 2008
Tasted 8/19/08. 750ml cork and cage. Upon opening, the cork is stinky and darkened. Pours a hazy body with a golden orange hue. Slight trace head with no pop when it was opened. Candy nose with hints of grapes, citrus and berries. Good nose! Ever so slight vinuous note. Full bodied with a solid yet melded burn. Typical Unibroue character with a nice mix of citrus and honey. Medium roasted sweet malts. As complex as this beer is, I keep going over and over the honey and citrus flavors. Stickt finish with a faint slight hop character. So smooth with flavors of graham crackers and lemon acidity. Moderate effervescence. So good! And I still have one left!

mabel (5805) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 12, 2008
[1512-20080704] 20floz bottle. Florally sweet malt aroma has heavy hay straw notes and hints of floral lemon. Murky, light brown orange body with quick white bubbles and lots of floaties. Belgian yeast flavour also has muted hay and malt and lemon yeast. Medium body seems a little flat. Interesting to try, holding its age fairly well.

Aside: This was the bottle jerc and I brought back with us from Montreal c/o Glouglouburp via HogTownHarry for tupalev, who then kindly shared it with us!

Courtesy of BeerBuzzMontreal, thank you! I was fully aware this brew was about 6-7 years of age.. rendering it a completely different animal then it was originally intended. Poured orange hue. Taste was toffee and alcohol. Reminded me, unfortunately, of Lucifer with a quarter shot of vodka. Some citrus notes apparent. Medium bodied. Tasted like it was once legendary, but a little too aged- yielding it difficult to rate.
