4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
750 ML bottle purchased at Liquor barn in Redding, CA. THE POUR / APPEARANCE: Pours a deep brown with an fluffy off-white head. Good and proper meniscus for the style.AROMA / BOUQUET: definitive French Oak, wonderful nuttiness, allspice. TASTE: Lovely woodiness in the beer- wood barrel fermented. Deep, rich, caramel, with a light smokiness, almost a tawny port-like quality. Hop bitterness is pronounced, but not overly so. PALATE: Woody smokiness, proper mouthfeel for this kind of ale. For those cigar lovers out there, this would make an excellent pairing. Enjoy with smoked meats, Port Salut cheese, or even as a dessert ale- it’s that sumptuous! This is one of Unibroue’s finest. Vive a’ la Quebec!

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.

2011 bottle. Once I wrestled the cork out of the bottle this poured amber brown with a clingy beige head. Aroma is heavy on the clove, with banana, fig, raisins. Flavor follows nose, with a bit of caramel. Dry oaky finish.
