3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750ml bottle tasted at Daknole’s Memorial Day "Throw Down". Amber/brown pour with unimpressive cream colored head. Aroma is subdued spice, yeast, malt and maybe some dark fruit. Again taste, like aroma is just flat, with some spice, toasted malt, and somewhat bitter/sweet. Finish has some alcohol (10%abv) warmth, but time has taken it’s toll on this one. You can sense that all the spicey attributes that generally make Unibroue ales so good, are there; they’re just lost in time. Disappointing, because this was probably a good one, 3 or 4 years ago.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Etwas hefiger, außerdem stechend malziger Antrunk. Im Mittelteil schleicht sich eine Wässrigkeit ein, die kurzzeitig den kompletten Geschmack an sich reißt. Danach säuerlich hefig, etwas trocken herb, unspektakulär. Die Malzigkeit lässt nach, das Bier bleibt minimal sauer und ist ab dem hinteren mittelteil übermäßig mild. Langweilig! 9/9/9/8/8/8

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Raadhuskiosken, bornholm. Production date 11-23-2004. (rated 01-24-2011).
clear nutty dark brown, smooth offwhite head. darker than what i had thought.
quite faint aroma, the domnant note is cellary or mouldy notes. Beneath that you might notice a little bit of alc. decieving aroma, considering it’s 10% abv.
Flavor is very moudy / cellary, also sweet caramelly, sweet malty and sweet dark fruity. apart from the cellary note, the rest is pretty darn well balanced and mingled together, more subtle flavors are licorice, syrup, figs, raisins. Retired at ratebeer, perhaps they don’t make tihs anymore, lucky i got to taste it.
