UPDATED: MAY 25, 2005 Bottle: From Julio’s. Good nose Bit of a red wine with fruity hints as well. A familiar yeast scent too. Nice reddish brown color. Good head that disappeared to a ring. I get sweet fruity flavors. Cherry, plum, brown sugar, some ABV and like sethdude said some hefe in there. Nice finish flavorful yet very not thick or no ABV overwhelming. I’m just starting to apreciate this style. We’ll see where it goes.

Poured very dark, almost opaque, with a medium head that settled down quick. Sweet and spicy armoa, much like a wine. First taste is sweet, fruity. Plums and cherries spring up but do not dominate, light spice, very little alcohol burn. Wonderful warmth and depth, marvellous aftertaste. Outstanding.

Eructoblaster (3889) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 31, 2004
Pours a rich almost black color with some caramel glints. Unfortunately, its light brown bubbly head faded quickly in my trappist glass. The aroma is definitely fruity (berries, dark cherries, banana), carries some spicy and yeasty hints, and hides the alcohol wonderfully. Taste is surprisingly sweet for a 10,5% alcohol beer. Its long bittersweet final gives you the warming effect you need after a cold winter afternoon spent outdoors. Dangerously drinkable, and perfect before going to bed...

Bottle at the Winking Judge. Very dark redish colour with a litt bit of foam. very well balanced for a 10.5% beer. A good beer to relax and sip.

Shared 750 bottle. Good beer. Had a tripel smell at the first sniff. Tasted like a tripel with some dark malt to it. Alcohol was hidden very well.

sethdude (706) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 18, 2004
Pours a deep cola color, with a small tan head resting atop. This head quickly dissipates, leaving just a ring of tan around the edges of the glass. Smells of dark fruit, sweet malts, and hefeweizen-like spices. Flavor is again dark fruit and hefeweizen tones of banana and coriander, but with the addition of coffee, chocolate and yeast. Hops leave a pleasant, grassy flavor and a bit of bitterness on the end. Alcohol is not very evident for a beer of this ABV, and all in all I was quite impressed. Hopefully Unibroue will not lose this treasure under ownership of Sleemans.

roomtempbeer (185) - Franklin, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 14, 2004
Beer pours (in Chimay glass) a very dark brown, cloudy liquid with a small amount of caramel colored head that dissipates quickly to near nothing. Aroma is of malt, plum, raisin, fruity, maybe a faint whiskeyish character. Flavor is of plum, raisin, fruit, but also has a faint grassy-whiskeyish that isn’t pleasant. Liquid has a very thin and watery mouthfeel, but goes down easily enough. Not bad taken in mouthfuls, but stay away from sipping this one. Also not very effervescent. Sampled at 68 degrees Fahrenheit.

Sammy (11242) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 6, 2004
Very dark color in beautiful bottle. 750 ml too much, a smaller bottle would be just right. Can taste the alcohol, and bitterness. Alcohol not as masked as other Unibroue’s. Can substitute for an average wine earlier in the meal.

JoeMcPhee (9325) - 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.
