I had this at Global Brew. Pours brown with a tan head. Taste dark fruits, Carmel, Belgian yeast. I thought this was pretty good. I would drink this again.

Bottle from the LCBO. Pours a hazy dark brown with a huge pillowy off white head that continues to cling to the glass all the way down. Nose is toffee, biscuit and lots of belgian yeast. Taste is heavy yeast and and an interesting mixture of spice that is quite well balanced. Mouth is medium slick with soft carbonation. More subtle than most Unibroue offerings.

Aroma is dark fruit/grapes, toffee, malts and a good hint of sweetness. The flavor is dark fruit/grapes, bananas, some funk, malts and a mix of big tangy/sourness in the finish.

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

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.
