750mL corked 03-1. Impressive head that lasted a few minutes, white. This is a sexy brew! Deep mahogany ruby. Thin lace holds to edge of glass. Slightly fruity, earthy, and some what leather like in scent. Taste is very fruity with an alcohol warth. Similar to sweetened pineapple juice, pear, and a slight linger of banana. The malts are superb! Very enjoyable and somewhat similar to wine. Wish this was more available in my area!

Dickinsonbeer (5075) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 30, 2004
Pours nice deep brown with slight head and nice lacing. Aroma is slightly fruity, some malts, and a hint of leather and musk (similar to what you get from Duvel) Nice malty flavors with a complex finish. Some plum, and a hint of chocolate in the flavor. Nice finish. High alcohol is hidden very well.

Enniskillen (2044) - Salinas, California, USA - MAR 30, 2004
Aroma is of Dried Apricots, Malt, Dark Cherries, and I caught a slight coffee note. It had a big head that went down very quickly. Got much better as it warmed. Smoot on the palate and had perfect carbination. Was very sweet and a good Belgian.

frink (467) - coquitlam, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 23, 2004
750ml corked caged from July 02. Pours a dark brown almost black with a thin head. Aromas of toasted malts Unibroue yeast and some coffee. Somewhat stout like in the nose. The flavour is good, yeast, malts, sweet, slight alcohol kick also some mild hops I hadn't noticed before. This beer is much better at cellar temp. (53f-58f) than at a refridgerated temp. The carbonation softens when it warms making it possible to pick up the complexities of the nose and flavour profile. Damn I love this beer!

obxdude10 (2178) - Pottstown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 19, 2004
Excellent Belgian-style beer, very dark brown in color, very little head, of what head was there was tan-ish & very subtle, very complex & fruity flavors although very subtle, overall balance was very excellent, very similar to Chimay Bleu if I may say so, very strong, very up-front, very excellent

fly (1450) - austin, Tejas, Texas, USA - MAR 17, 2004
Ignorant Texan lacks cognitive skills and general perception to enable subtle complexities to register. Was quite underwhelmed initially and gradually gravitated to plateau whereby some semblance of superior beer stared me down. Finding a certain sameness in Uni-product. Cherry aroma - not qulque chose, but still ... and speaking of still - not overly carbonated. That in and of itself is really not an issue or a problem. I just find this a good beer, but not one hat intrigues me enough to want to try it all too often.

Brewso (238) - Mt Kisco, New York, USA - MAR 14, 2004
This is one bold and beautiful belgian. Complex flavors of dark fruit- mostly bing cherries. The bubbles are champagne like giving this a smooth mouthfeel. Very classy and meant to be served in a fine crystal goblet. Wonderfully coupled with the R.E.M. album "Reveal".

PushEject (42) - Palmdale, California, USA - MAR 10, 2004
This was hard to rate (and drink). Very thick, dark and malty with hints of soy-sauce. Overly carbonated and musky. This beer tastes like an attic.

BierBauch (784) - Cape Coral Waterfront Wonderland, Florida, USA - MAR 8, 2004
750ml Corked woth a 08-1 Stamped on the Cork Poured a a dark brown and possibly the darkest Belgian Strong Ale I've had as of yet. There is not much of a head on this one, just a very subtle thin film. Aroma is fruity with notes of cherries, some clove like spices as well as a peppery spice. The body is quite smooth and rounded with a carbonated crispness. The flavor I find similar to Trois Pistoles. It has the fruity malt and sugary sweetness as well as a spiciness that may be more dominant than the Trois. Overall this is a very nice Belgian style with a very spicy profile.

HumuloneRed (751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 5, 2004
Bottled. Dark/deep ruby red with little head. Great fruit and spice nose. Full body that has notes of fruits(apple, pear, apricot) and spice(black pepper). Hot spice/alcohol finish. I have been putting a few of these beers "In the cellar" It be very nice to see how this beer mellows and develops.
