Viper666 (3271) - Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 7, 2016
Bouteille. Nez de levures fruitées (prunes, dates, léger d’agrumes, notes de pommes et de raisins), d’alcool vineux et liquoreux, de malt foncé du genre caramel toffee et de sucre brun puis assez épicé (clou de girofle, coriandre, notes de poivre). Ronde-moyenne en bouche avec un pétillement plutôt élevé et une texture mi-liquoreuse et mi-vineuse. Goût de levures fruitées très légèrement acides (prunes, raisins vineux, léger d’agrumes et de pommes) et aux notes boisées et assez épicé (clou de girofle, coriandre et poivre) lors de l’entrée en bouche suivi d’un goût de malt rappelant le caramel toffee moyennement rôti et des notes de mélasse et de sucre brun puis finalement un goût d’alcool moyen et assez vineux vient se joindre au tout pour procurer une moyenne amertume avec les levures (notes de houblon floral et d’anis). Arrière-goût assez long et un peu sec, légèrement amer d’alcool vineux et de levures (notes de rôti) avec un goût fruité (moût de raisins vineux et de prunes avec des pelures de pommes). [notes 2006]

750 ml bottle at home from notes. Pours a hazy orange amber color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor had sweet malts, the typical Unibroue yeast, citrus notes, ripe dark fruits as well, caramel, almost barley wine like with its presentation, it shows its age with some oxidation. Overall, not too bad.

mabel (8014) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 15, 2014
[6332-20140522] Bottle. Fruity raisin malt aroma. Dark brown body with a quick bubbly head. Fruity raisin malt flavour. Full body. Ok, it’s nearly a decade old so a rating here is debatable but c’mon, it’s pretty good even a decade later! (8/3-/8/3/16) 3.8

tom10101 (4921) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 29, 2013
Bottle (750 ml). Acquired via trade. Dark brown with no head and no lacing. Aroma is slightly fruity with cardboard and brown sugar. Taste is mostly of cardboard along with light fruits, brown sugar and some spices. Alcohol isn’t present at all. Medium body. Low carbonation. This beer was supposed to have been well stored but that’s doubtful considering how bad it was. Definitely past is prime.

Damico (3119) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 16, 2013
Pours thick and murky, swampy brown with almost no head. Aroma has faded, but you get some tangy yeast for sure. Flavor brings tangy yeast dominant with some malty flavors as undertones.

superspak (4315) - Michigan, USA - FEB 26, 2013
750 ml bottle into signature tulip glass, bottled on 12/12/2011. Pours very hazy dark reddish brown color with a nice 2 finger dense and fluffy light khaki head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice thick soapy lacing clings on the glass, with plenty of carbonation streaming up retaining the head. Aromas of big raisin, prune, fig, apple, pear, molasses, brown sugar, toast, toffee, caramel, herbal, banana, pepper, clove, cinnamon, and yeast earthiness. Fantastic aromas with big complexity and great balance of malt and fruity esters. Taste of big raisin, prune, fig, molasses, brown sugar, toffee, toast, herbal, banana, pepper, clove, cinnamon, light oak, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of dark fruits, molasses, brown sugar, caramel, toast, toffee, herbal, banana, pepper, clove, cinnamon, oak, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a while. Fantastic balance and complexity of dark malt, spice, and fruity esters; with zero cloying sweetness present after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a creamy, slick, earthy, and lightly prickly mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is extremely well hidden with only a slight warming noticed well after the finish. Overall this is an incredible Belgian strong dark ale! Big complexity and balance of malt and fruity esters; and dangerously smooth to sip on. An absolutely top notch offering all around.

Imaena (2157) - Maputo, MOZAMBIQUE - DEC 21, 2012
Bottle. Got this one after it had been cellared ...by that i mean left n the shelf...a few years at a beer shop in Orno, ME. Pretty standard flavor palette for Unibroque. Little more alcohol warmth than expected.
