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.

A dead ringer for the '10'. Luscious pour with cloudy yellow appearance and meringue head. Again I taste a wheat beer quality - its sweetish, herbal with mint and anise undertones. Fruity, but not hugely so, low bitterness level, low acidity, vanilla notes very smooth mouth-feel. I like the '10' and '11' but they are candy-like to some degree, and could benefit from a wider palate range. Alot of Unibroue beers seem to have this same, fortified wheat beer profile.

Bottle 750ml. Pours golden with almost no head (white). Aroma is of malt, madeira, fruits, caramel. Taste is of malt, fruits, alcohol, caramel, slight cardboard. Palate: Light-medium body. Overall: Over the hill. The alcohol is somewhat present.

Bottle (750 ml). Acquired via trade. Clear golden with a small quickly collapsing white head and no lacing. Aroma is fruity and boozy with cardboard. Taste is mostly of cardboard along with light fruits and boozy notes. Medium body. Low carbonation. This beer was supposed to have been well stored but that’s doubtful considering how bad it was. Definitely past is prime.

Bottle at the house. Thanks the TheBeerSommelier for this one. The last of the anniversary beers from Unibroue for me. This one is dead. No carb, oxidized to hell. Not much of an aroma. Flavor is cardboard and sherry. That’s pretty much what I expected but hoped it wouldn’t be, lol. I’m still surprised at how well these beers have held up. This is the only one I’ve had that has been totally flat, which is very impressive. Cheers!!!

Damico (2646) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 16, 2013
Pours golden orangey hazy with plenty of floating sediment. The aroma has faded immensely, a bit of tropical fruit like Belgian yeast. The flavor has faded as well, a bit of citrus and malty lightly sweetened Belgian yeast.

Cloudy amber beer. Fruity zingy malt nose - nice! Light dry palate. Low carbonation. Like a Belgian Tripel but stronger and less of that sweet malt. More fruit before an aniseed alcohol finish. Typically eclectic Unibroue and quite drinkable.

nimbleprop (5084) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 6, 2011
750ml bottle pours a hazy, dark yellow with a thin, white head. Looks like pineapple juice. Nose of tropical fruits, candy sugar, yeast. Flavor is sweet, tropical fruit, pineapple juice, nail polish. Chalky, medium bodied, sticky finish. Definitely mellowed out some.

750 ml bottle shared by dbsdelight- thanks again, Dan! Dated January 2003, wow. Pours a mostly clear gold color with no head. Lighter-looking than most Unibroue beers. Aroma of honey, Unibroue yeast, nutmeg, caramel malts, and herbs. Flavor of Unibroue yeast, mixed fruits (pears, apples, apricots), herbs, grains, and honey. Light-medium bodied, with a sweet, herbal mouthfeel and low carbonation.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAR 16, 2011
Hazy amber with faint bubbles lost most carbonation despite being corked and caged. Aromatically oxidized with apples, and cider notes. Esters, perfume, apricots and apples. A hint of cinnamon and light clove. Apples and hints of cardboard but still a modest Belgian style fruit tone that this isn’t bad. Odd I typically hate any oxidation whatsoever. The finish falls off quick with a bit of warming.

brokensail (11240) - Orange County, California, USA - JAN 1, 2011
A: The pour is a murky golden straw color with essentially no head to speak of. S: Not too pleasant to start off. Lots of cardboard with some alcohol. This is followed up with a sweet honey-like aroma as well as some floral and herbal notes and yeast. T: Starts off really sweet like a mead along with some toffee and caramel to remind you this is a beer. There’s still some cardboard oxidation and alcohol, but also a very strange herbal flavor. M: The body is medium with a pretty low level of carbonation. D: Like the 10th Anniversary, this one is pretty much dead.
