(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.

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 (821) - 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?

Bottle. Courtesy of marsiblursi. Pours cloudy mahogany with a rim of off white bubbles. Aroma is weak; malty, fruity and raisins. Flavor is sunky, cellar, cardboard, vinous, sourish and tart. Odd. Finishes moldy and fruity bitter.

lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 31, 2011
Pours a ruddy brown with a small and quickly dissipating beige cover. Aroma is oxidized pit fruits, fig, grape, plum, sherry. Taste is a bit thin bodied fruit again, some caramel, cocoa, noticeably oxidized but this one has aged gracefully.

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.
