(Bottle) Mmmm... 4-packs of beer! This one I had to try - poured a delicious, large, brown head and a near opaque black body. Yeasty nose with slight banana and cocoa. I tried both of the Metro Irresistibles at the same time and definitely preferred this one. Somewhat different flavour offered here by Unibroue!

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark brown color, big fluffy head, yeast, banana and chocolate aroma, some spices. The aroma reminds me a bit of aventinus, only less well-done. The taste is quite disappointing. It is somewhat thin with notes of wheat, roastiness, chocolate, a bit of wheat? acidity, weird sweetness.

Subtle blackberry notes lead to bready yeast and coriander-laced cloves...At first, this dark ale is very blond tasting but slowly develops into a baby Trois-Pistoles...Grapes and dried anise arise and offer a good introduction to Belgian Ales for the neophyte...
