Dark brown in hue. Head forms and quickly dissipates. Tastes a big young for oak aged but as it warms more of the stone fruit flavors come out. Benefits from some swirling in a glass. Could use some time to develop a more complex profile.

Refrigerated 75 cl 2011 brown bottle, best before 12/12/2016 corked and capped. Pours clear dark amber with small/medium off-white head. Aroma is herbal hops, medium body, medium carbonation, and good small bubble lacing. Taste is caramel, oak, spice, and some herbal hops. Christmas beer?

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear brown pour with not too much of a white head. Herby, raisin, spicy, boozy scent. Thick in the mouth. Lots going on here. Lots of spices, some fruity tartness. Definitely can taste the alcohol. Taste like a good Belgian Extra Strong Dark Ale, which is really impressive as it’s brewed right here in Canada. This is up there with some Trappist stuff I’ve had.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Chestnut body with a finely bubbled, tan head. The aroma is mostly French oak, with some sweet malt and dark fruit. The flavor is sweet, with some oak, dark fruit, and spices. Not bad but the oak is a little too prominent for my tastes.

UPDATED: APR 3, 2014 Not much in the way of carbonation. A 2013 bottle, could use a little aging. Dark fruits and pleasant yeast, can?t lose, but nothing incredible

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rated on 8-21-2010 at Fort Wayne, IN Gathering (Corked bottle). This beer forms a small fizzy tan head with a short retention, reddish brown body, no visible carbonation, and a fair amount of lacing. The aroma consist of caramel malt, raisins, dark fruit, woody, earthy, and alcohol. The taste is sweet, boozy, caramel malt, dark fruit, and raisins. The palate is lively and aggressive. This is a medium-full bodied beer. Overall, a very tasty beer and one that I would drink again.

Stumbled upon this bottle by itself at a local beer store and had to get it. Unibroue has yet to disappoint me and this is no exception. Pours a deep reddish brown with a thick, foamy head. Faint spice aromas and some sweet malty notes. Big time malt presence in the flavor with some dark fruits popping out. I feel like I should be drinking this after I eat a 5 star dinner. You know that feeling when you are at a loss for words but you think to yourself, "damn, this shit’s good", yeah, this is one of those times.
