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.

estover (50) - Valencia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 17, 2012
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 (1264) - 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.

zach8270 (3219) - Henrietta, New York, USA - NOV 26, 2011
(bottle - corked & caged 750 ml) Cloudy amber pour with a thick and frothy off-white head. Lots of fruits and malts in the aroma. Definitely picked up plums and raisins. Flavor is creamy and fruity and incredibly smooth. Fruits and oak and vanilla and a port flavor do a very long dance all over the tongue and mellow nicely at the finish. Alcohol burn is pretty much non-existent. Incredibly smooth.

SudsMcDuff (5660) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - NOV 11, 2011
you are full of newtons! .. . Pours a deep burgundy brown .. medium soapy head .. sticky crazy lacing .. . smell is plums, prunes, dark fruits, cellar and reduced brandy .. . aged amazingly well, and still has a touch of heat in the throat- a winter sipper for sure .. . . Stomp that pickle revert!

cakanator (452) - South Hadley, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 9, 2011
750ml from the haus. I nabbed this one as I already have two in the basement so I thought I’ give it a go to see how long I can hold them for. Pours extra dark medium size head. Looks and smells wonderful but then once I tried it and felt the slight alcohol burn on the finsh I knew this needed a little more time. Much like anything that is a little young it showed room for improvement over the next year.

gilvanblight (761) - Windsor, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 15, 2011
Very dark brown. White bubble head. Strong sour spicy scent. Actually smells like a wine a bit. Strong taste. Slight burn of the tongue from alcohol. Complex flavour. Very little alcohol taste despite the %age and the earlier burn. Very pleasant warm aftertaste. Fruit taste grows as it settles. Do I taste Prune?
