3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours with a coca-cola head that disappears immediately. Looks like coke. Consistency of coke. Colour of coke. Smells like roasted malt with a little burn in there (not like coke), but the maltiness is not strong at all. Very fizzy, like coke. If I didn’t know this was a beer, I’d think it was a coke. There’s a tiny bit of bitterness, like coke.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml bottle into tulip glass, best by 4/2/2010. Pours slightly cloudy very dark reddish brown color with a foamy 1-2 finger light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a very thin cap that lingers for a bit. Some decent spotty lacing clings to the glass. Aromas of big prune, plum, caramel, apple, pear, molasses, clove, earth, tobacco, toast, and yeast spiciness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity. Taste of caramel, toffee, apple, pear, toast, clove, molasses, prune, tobacco, earth, and yeast spices. Lingering notes of caramel, toffee, pear, apple, molasses, prune, clove, toast, and yeast spices on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance of malty and fruity sweetness with spiciness; with no cloying sweetness at all. Medium carbonation and body; with a fairly creamy, slick, and lightly prickly mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with pretty much no warming noticed at all after the finish. Overall this is a damn good Belgian dark ale. Extremely nice flavor balance and complexity; very smooth and enjoyable stuff. Very well done.

Excellent belgian style from Unibroue. One of the best the offer. I wasn’t expecting much from this for some reason, but after six bottles on six different days I am impressed. Very nice palate, feels perfect. Has a nice aroma with a little more yeast than some, but it works. There is a bit more of a malt taste than expected but it finds harmony with bitterness.

...was surprised at the smoothness of this one, the color really throws you off. Deep reddish brown, with a tan head. Cherry-like flavors, yeast, and nice smooth creamy malt. Finished smooth and creamy with nice fruity aftertaste. It surprised me. Cool story too.
