tom10101 (3104) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 29, 2013
Bottle (750 ml). Acquired via trade. Hazy golden with a small quickly collapsing white head and no lacing. Aroma is slightly fruity with Madeira, cardboard and spices. Taste is slightly to moderately sweet with fruity notes, brown sugar, cardboard and Madeira.. 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.

DenverLogan (827) - MileHi, Colorado, USA - AUG 20, 2013
From the corked bottle. Interesting the layer of sediment on the side from side storage over a year ago...it’s still clinging on. Lots of sediment visible at the bottom. Poured into a medium Duvel tulip glass. Significant cork pop. Pours an amber - copper color. Aroma of sweet malts and honey. Moderate carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of powder sugar, caramel, sweet malts, honey, slight white pepper, alcohol, flowery spices. Overall big and flavorful with the alcohol mostly subdued, but a slight touch of oxidation. Has held up very well with aging since 2006.

Reynolds314 (2440) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 9, 2012
Huge beer with tons of plums, chocolate, caramel, nuts, and earthy leathery notes. medium/high sweetness with a dry finish that is very boozy. Good but a bit harsh.

Maybe one of my oldest beers, aroma is fresh, bready and belgian. Boozy and rich. Alcohol burns the finish

Bigsilky (327) - Charleston, USA - SEP 5, 2012
Typical of a few recent reviews. Maybe not well stored. Big bubbles and very loose foam. Bready malt with notes of vanilla and brandy spice. Palate is redolent of orange marmalade and candied citrus rind. Oxidative flavors begin to creep into the finish. Tripels can age, maybe not this long, and certainly at better temperatures.

OmegaX (1283) - Florida, USA - JUL 29, 2012
I love Unibroue and could barely wait to open this one any longer. Nose is big yeast and sweet citrus. Bread and light spice notes. Pour is hazy yellow/orange with a white head. Taste is sweet citrus, spicy yeast, and honey like flavors. Very nice. It reminded me much of their La Fin du Monde.

Chipalsa (1310) - Florida, USA - JUL 29, 2012
Bottle
Appearance - Hazy orange, plush white head
Aroma - Yeast, lemon, vanilla
Taste - Caramel, oranges, yeast

For a bottle this old, it tasted very fresh. Lots of bready notes and fresh citrus come through on the palate very nicely. Of course - thank you OmegaX for the share.
