(750ml bottle thanks to JJFoodie) cloudy medium orange, ring of tan bubbles. Nose of sherry/port, rich, dark fruits like dates and raisins, light alcohol. Taste is oddly acidic, golden raisins, seems like alcohol Heat but almost more like chipotle/ancho chilies, interesting and well carbonated.

Bottle 750 ml. Pours dark golden with a medium beige head. Some lacing. Aroma of candy sugar, dark fruits, spices, porto and caramel. Taste of dark fruits, caramel and porto. A little acidity. Medium to full body and alcohol is well hidden. Probably a year or two past is prime, but still a very good and complex beer.

BeerGolem (664) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 26, 2012
Bottle was from 2007. The aroma was rich and complex: porto, madere, malt and some roasted bread. Had lost the specific aroma of Unibroue’s yeast. The taste did not totally lived up to the aroma though. Full bodied beer, some warming alcohol. Bouteille de 2007. La bière a bien vieilli. L’arôme est riche et complexe: porto, madere, malt et pain grillé. Perd l’arôme de levure spécifique à Unibroue. Le goût, cependnat, n’est pas à la hauteur de l’arôme. La bière est ronde en bouche. Goût d’alcool ressenti.
