Cellared until 9/2012 Clear dark brown with a minimal white head. The aroma is sweet caramel and toast. The flavor follows the aroma and adds a fruity spicy touch. Smooth and very easy drinking. Hides itís alcohol well.

Bottle shared with friends. Nose is big spicy yeast and toffee/caramel with some bready notes. Flavors match. No signs of alcohol. Not much else to say here except itís an exceptional brew. Iíve come to expect nothing less from these folks at Unibroue.

This brew must have been properly stored, as it showed no signs of age. The nose was herbal and mellow with notes of toffee and light alcohol. Vanilla and caramel cover the mouth, and afterwards leaves and almost candied grapefruit aftertaste. Seriously good stuff here - thanks Jordan.

Another old favourite opened at a Bartowel tasting that is showing signs of age. Clear mahogany with no head to speak off, bit of a white film. Madira, oak, figs, toffee, yeast and some oxidization. Very low carbonation, medium bodied, slightly sweet but with a mild bitterness on the finish along with more fruit. Past its prime but still interesting to try again after all these years.

cfrancis (3168) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 1, 2012
Thanks to pushkinwow for popping this at the Ottawa tasting. Pours dark brown with an off white top. Aroma is specialty malts, figs and candy sugar. Taste is fizzy, figs, raisins, special malts and yeast. Sublimely complex, perhaps a bit past but still very awesome.

One of my all time favorites. Thick head on top of a brown\black liquid front the heavens. Strong malty yeasty nose that Unibroue is known for. Chocolate and coffee warms as it goes down.

beernbourbon (1559) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - DEC 30, 2011
Bottle along side the 2004. Pour is an effervescent cloudy brown with a smallish brown head. Aroma is loaded with deep dark fruits, Belgian-like spice, hints of wood, and a deep earthiness. Flavor is also loaded with deep fruity spice and hints caramel malt. Much more complex and not flat as compared to the 2004. Probably still a little past prime as there are some hints of oxidation but still very enjoyable.
