Good dark beer but has that certain underlying flavor which is a chraracteristic of all Unibroue beers. I just noticed this: Unibroue=one brew?

clingy little tan head, velveety brown body. nice lace. yeasty, winey, ripe sweet fruits, nice alcohol presence. woody notes hit with a leathery sweetness, more chocolatey as it warms. big full mouthfeel, foams up a bit then astringency leaves some dry grainy malt character. a steadily building warmth. malt profile and alcohol of a dopplebock, aroma and mouthfeel of a dubbel.

Okay, so I was trying to think of a clever way to say that the name directly implies how this tasted, then I find out that it is rated quite high. While this doesnt change my review in any way, I just think that now I am missing something, or (more likely) you guys are all crazy. This stuff is near black in colour. I am getting TONS of yeast and wheats in the nose and taste. Right there is where this goes wrong with me. I just dont like that flavour. There is some currents but that yeast just doesnt do it for me.

Wheatsheaf (104) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 29, 2004
750mL bottle. A near-black ale with mahogany highlights that pours with a fizzy, mostly diminishing head. Full aroma of fruit, spices, and yeast. Moderately lively palate holds rich flavors of plums, black currants, stewed fruit, and port wine. Some roasted bitterness in the background, along with some slight pepperiness from the alcohol that is otherwise hidden. Increasingly mellow as it warms. An accomplished beer, just lacking that little bit extra.

Crockett (1081) - Southampton, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 22, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 24, 2004 I cannot say enough about this beer. I've had it on many occasions and it is always great, sometimes amazing... A little tempermental and nicer if it has warmed a little. Beautiful bottle. Great name. Powerful. Cork, 750ml bottle conditioned. Nice caramelly nose of dried fruit. Off white small bubble head. Opaque. Complex fruity, burnt sugar, plummy/fig flavour. Some coffee. Yeasty. Many Port-like characteristics. Great mouth feel. Stunning. Extremely well crafted beer. It's funny I've yet to see a five out of five. Easily one Unibroue's best. I'd love to do a vertical tasting. Great for aging.

Awesome! Riche Belgian-like brown-sugar, plum, raisen in the nose and the palate. A most enjoyable beer....putting a few down to age, we'll see in a year....

unclebleen (620) - California, USA - JAN 20, 2004
Dark brown with a small off-white head that rims the glass. Lots of fruit and yeast in the aroma. Plums and cherries. Flavors are rich and complex. Malt and yeast followed by a decent alcohol tingle. Body is smooth and perfect. A good offering.

VA Homebrewer (525) - Portsmouth, Virginia, USA - JAN 19, 2004
Deep brown with a lacy off-white head. Hot alcohol aroma compemented by pronounced yeast with subtle malts and mild dark fruit notes. Full-bodied with a definite malt accent. Not chocolatey or roasted - just malt. Yeasty up front, dry through the middle and finish. Fun and drinkable, but not overly impressive.

vwsteggie (684) - Paxton, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 19, 2004
Extreme Beer Fest Boston 2004: Has a dark brown color with a good amount of carbonation and fruity smell. Taste is fruity/malted and a slight alcohol finish. Overall one of the better offerings from this brewery.

UPDATED: JAN 25, 2004 Extreme Beer Fest '04: Color is dark brown with big foamy head. Aroma is very fruity and sweet. Flavor is full and malty with fruit. It's smooth and warming. Damn good beer. My favorite from Unibroue so far.
