2013 bottle. Pours auburn, chestnut hue with a small beige head. Toasted oak on the nose, sweet fruits, candied plum and raisins. Medium to heavy carbonation, almost full bodied, plummy with an oaky finale, with some vanilla. Good Quad if for the bubbly palate that is a bit annoying.

Nice complexity. I hear it ages well. Spicy, caramel, boozy Trappist touch also a little woody Ans Bourbon I’m gonna pick up a few more and age them. Picked them up at Bières du Monde in Aylmer

This beer warms your cockles a bit more with every sip. I recommend drinking this with friends from Europe.

Pours a dark hazy color with a large white head. Aroma of dark fruit, cinnamon, clove and some raisins. Taste is a bit sweet with a medium body and some lingering alcool. Wouldn’t know it’s a 10 percent alcool beer. Very good balanced beer.

There are few things I love more than Unibroue specials... This one was poured gently into my Westmalle chalice. Colour is a beyond-gorgeous deep, deep red with a foamy off-white head that looks to be in no hurry to go down. Nose has a smokey quality to it, along with the regular sweet richness of the Belgian yeast. Flavour is somewhat metallic, surprisingly on the light side compared to some of their other offerings. Ripe fruit, smokey oak, slight orange peel, slightest hint of gingerbread. Its strength is completely hidden, that is certain. Not one of my favourite offerings from Unibroue, but still quite good. I wonder what a bit of extra aging will do.

750ml bottle from the LCBO. Pours a perfect caramel colour... As if you melted some in your glass. Nice fluffy head that only lingers for a few minutes. Carbonation is tight as if it were bottle conditioned (not sure if it is or not). Very smooth mouthfeel and a beautiful bready taste. Reminds me a lot of Rochefort 8. In fact I think I calls for a head to head to call a winner
