ClassyBeagle (376) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 3, 2013
FROM NOTES: July 11, ’12 Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a pint glass (it’s all I had available). A: Sweet smell, mainly of dark fruits (cooked raisins and a bit of dates and prunes) and cognac. A: This pours out a dark brown colored body with a very tall light beige colored head. the head takes its time falling, and leaves behind small spots of lacing. T: Very complex. Starts with the sour taste like the nose, quickly followed by strong malty, slightly fruity flavor. The malt is then succeeded by the fruitiness growing stronger. This fruitiness is reminiscent of grape-wine and plum. P: Medium body with solid carbonation. Very smooth on the palate. Leaves a bit of sweetness behind as well. O: Another great beer from Unibroue, very complex, very drinkable.

Draft. Dark velvet pour, with a small finger of creamy stout looking head. Aroma of coffee, roasted malts, and lots of Belgian yeast (mild spice, lemon, cloves).Yeasty taste up front, little bit of lemon, some spice, finishes with some coffee and roasted malts. I imagine this is what a black Belgian IPA (if such a thing exists) would taste like. Very drinkable. Great stuff!

kevinsenn (1993) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 23, 2013
750mL bottle from LCBO. Pours as black as the name suggests, with a thin tan head. Aroma: Unibroue spice, with some dry roasty notes. Taste is tons of spice; cinnamon, cloves, etc., slightly sweet, with a dry finish. Seems to have mostly the "Unibroue yeast" taste and not much else, and that’s not a bad thing! Not much of a "black taste". Medium-light body, moderate carbonation. Tasty!

electrotype (653) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 19, 2013
Bonne bière mais assez mince. Un exemple parfait de bière supposément-ale-foncée mais finalement un peu trop carbonisée. Une bonne bière tout de même, qui gagne d’être bue pas trop froide.

shaynsawchuk (681) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 18, 2013
750 mL bottle. Pours cola with a beige cap of tight bubbles. Aromas of prune, spice, a hint of roast and Unibroue house yeast. Moderate body and carbonation with a dry yeasty finish and subtle hop bitterness. Not overly impressed, but well made.

lesifflebiere (1670) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 6, 2013
Liquide bien noir mais pétillant, comme en témoigne la couche de mousse beige à la surface du verre. Fruits confits, cerises en tête, à l’odeur. En bouche, aucun grain torréfié à proprement parler, mais les fruits foncés (raisins rouges, prunes) dominent, appuyés par la levure caractéristique d’Unibroue, toujours généreusement fruitée elle-même. Cette bouteille de vingt mois d’âge, comme tous les produits de cette brasserie, tient exceptionnellement bien la route suite à un vieillissement. Une noire complexe, originale, savoureuse, bien qu’elle n’aspire pas à trôner au sommet des bières de cette brasserie désormais légendaire.

Freaky_tiki (1049) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 6, 2013
Pours dark espresso with a fluffy beige cap that sustains longer than surf guitar smacked with reverb. Has that rich unibroue taste with its lush mouthfeel & twangy sweetness. That its positive & its negative. Positive cuz it’s a good taste; negative cuz there’s a tired sameness working here. Still a nice brew.

Hopswagger (199) - South Carolina, USA - AUG 30, 2013
Best by 10-30-10 P: Dark cola appearance with a khaki head that fades fast and swims to the outside creating a nice ring. S: Sweet candy malt, grape juice, spicy funk, vinegar, fig pudding and tartness. T/M: Taste follows the nose but more timid sweetness and tartness. Flavors are thin and oxidation has started to set in. Nose is much more enjoyable. Spice is aggressive once warmed and yeast leaves your mouth dry and chalky. Metallic finish. Thinner body than expected in a BSDA. O: I didn’t love this but I’m stoked that I got a bottle of the pre name change brew. The low ABV sums up the thin body and flavor. I would really like this in a six pack due to its easy drinkability. I probably won’t be seeking this out in the future but a good brew to try.

pictoman (933) - British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 21, 2013
Poured from 355mL bottle (best before 02-21-08?). Dark muddy brown with minimal beige head. Very sweet aroma of berries, plum, brandy, and more berry. Sweet malt and brandy flavour. Thin body, dry finish.

Bottle (341 ml). The bottling date is almost erased, but I think it’s a 2011 bottle. Dark brown with a medium diminishing, but easy to revive beige head and some lacing. Aroma is light with roasted malt, spices and bread notes. Taste is about the same. Light body. Low to moderate carbonation. Watery mouthfeel. Subpar Belgian Ale, maybe in part because of the age, but the characteristics of the beers aren’t so amazing.
