JoeMcPhee (9267) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - APR 24, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 17, 2005 Dark, ruddy purplish coloured beer with a thick tan-coloured head that lasts to the bottom of my glass. Aromas of plum, raisin, and cherry with that characteristic Unibroue yeastiness. A faint hint of black pepper. Incredibly smooth with a faint fruity flavour, strong sweet maltiness, plum and cherry, yeasty Unibroue spice, sherry character, with a nice slightly bitter finish. As it warms you get some chocolatey notes, more pepper, and a leathery dryness. Very warming finish. Excellent brew with a rich creamy texture.

Outstanding beer. I can never make up my mind as to what my favorite Unibroue is but this is certainly up there. Strong malty flavour with a destinctive hop bitterness and aroma poking itself out just enough to offer an interesting balance.

PhrankSlovacek (54) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - APR 14, 2004
Pours dark opaque brown, with light quickly dissappearing foam.Fruity, floral, aroma. Spicy, syrupy, hints of carmel, chocolate, and a touch of coffee, mixed with a strong fruit and yeasty lees finish. Its an ok beer, but I don't like lees very much.

What a beer! Everything from the appearance of the bottle to the aftertaste of the beer is near perfect. It's a dark beer that doesn't fill you up like other dark beers seem to do. Try it today!

NICE DARK BEER, ALMOST BLACK, WITH CREAMY HEAD,HINTS OF BURNT HOPS, AND A BITTER AFTERTASTE. NOT BAD AT ALL!

No head, dark brown. Suffered from being a little too sweet, which didn't mix well with the funkiness of the yeast. Didn't care for the balance, which just lacked bitterness in the end. Overall, good but not as good as I expected based on the other Belgian styles from Unibroue.

jeffin7 (613) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - APR 5, 2004
UPDATED: APR 8, 2004 Pours brown with almost no head. Aroma is almost entirely of straw/horse blanket. Flavor is straw/spice followed by a nice dark fruit background. This beer is soft in flavor and is more the type in which you have to actively search out the subtlies to find any real depth of flavor. The alcohol is almost undetectable. The palate is medium but fades to thin on the finish. Many of the less apparent flavor levels only come out at true room tempature, my first sip was chilled and left much to be desired so let it warm.

Jazzy (11) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 5, 2004
I tend to agree with "PushEject". Maybe my bottle got hot in transport or something. For some reason there was not alot to be desired. I had great expectations, but was a little let down with the almost mustiness, lack of carbonation and the overall sweetness. color was very dark and consistencey was thick. It did have some nice spices floating in the nose.

Clear dark brown big light head. Medium bodied a bit fruity and earthy, a very light but pleasant malt flavor. This is a real winner
