UPDATED: DEC 10, 2003 Pop the cork and the ensuing escaping mist seems promising. Deep, dark brown with a thin tan head. The aroma reminded me of root beer, a favorite beverage of mine. The flavor was totally unappealing. Might work for everyone else but I dumped it after half a glass.

3fourths (7976) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 8, 2003
Opened towards the end of the night, so while I was still able to pick out the flavors and aromas, my ability to put those thoughts into words was impaired. Creamy plum and roasted malt aroma. Big cola-like flavor with spices and a sharp dark fruit bite in the middle. Very carbonated and thick.

omnivore (270) - San Francisco, California, USA - DEC 7, 2003
Dark oaky color with a faint tan head. Bready and sweet aroma. The flavor is heady and sweet. Nice alcoholic spike and fruity overtones with a slightly buttery palate.

nickchalk (229) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 6, 2003
Black oily body, little tan head. Typical unibroue aroma of yeastiness. Complex taste of blackberries, bitter fruitiness, hint of sourness. Oily palate. Great beer. Bottle.

snoot (286) - Anaheim, California, USA - DEC 6, 2003
Pours extremely dark, almost black. Head is moderate initially, quickly disappating. Aroma is sweet, yeasty and winey with a touch of alcohol. Flavor is slightly sweet initially, quickly giving way to complex plum and dark fruits, ending with a noticeable warming from the alcohol.

OberonTheifEMT (56) - Ferndale, Michigan, USA - DEC 4, 2003
Dark brown in color with a very active head. Pleasant aroma of currants with a hint of vanilla. An excellent Belgian style ale that makes for a wonderful companion on a cold winter evening. Extra points for being quite a value

TheBeerGod (5218) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - DEC 4, 2003
Pours a rich brown with a small tan head. The nose is dark fruit, sugar, and spice. My tongue is overwhelmed by flavors such as candy sugar, sweetened malt, plums and raisins, and spice. The alcohol is present as well. The finish has some sharp edges to it but this is still damn good!

booyaatribe (453) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 3, 2003
Wowzers. Rich, strong, dark, and overwhelming. Not as yeasty as, say, a Chimay Bleu, but just as complex. Doesn't overwhelm with the alcohol taste.

PeterA (340) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - DEC 1, 2003
My first impression is that you can smell those Unibroue yeasts and taste them. Tastes a little bit sweet and fruity. Somewhat on the rich side, but very good, leaving a pleasant aftertaste.

GreatStelle (363) - Chico, California, USA - DEC 1, 2003
A very good winter beer. Very warming with a 10.5 ABV. Nice dark color. A chewy malt flavor with a yeasty finish. Plums and bannanas in the mix. Very good but one bottle is good enough for me.
