Beautiful dark roasted color which had a roasty yeasty aroma. The flavor comprised wheat, cornfields, and dried fruits. left a slight burning on the back of my throat from the alcohol. excellent beer

Damn.....this stuff is good. I'm not as eloquent as the previous raters...but suffice it to say that I pretty well agree. Complex is the one adjective that comes to mind. Malty...sweet...dried fruits... damn....

Indra (2711) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - JAN 13, 2004
Complex and unique sweet, spicy, estery aroma, with clove and banana characteristics from the yeast, along with some licorice, flowers, nutmeg, sandalwood, red grape, plum, dark bread and very faint chocolate. Deep, dark red-black color, some light tinges of mahogany when they are searched for, and with a fine, creamy, lasting off-white head. Brown sugary sweetness and a depth of spices greet the palate, subsequently giving way to a profoundly vinous maltiness while the intriguing finish sees a conjunction of fruity yeast, the omnipresent spiciness, peppery alcohol, milk chocolate, toffeeish sweetness, dark, faintly grainy breadiness and tinges of citrus, raisin and carob. Moderately acidic palate, lightly bitter, with a smooth, creamily effervescent and rich mouthfeel. Somewhat warming, an appropriate cold-weather selection. Unmistakably Unibroue but still with a very distinct character. I actually found this one fairly difficult to rate, but it's effortlessly enjoyable.

JorisPPattyn (9249) - Ursel, BELGIUM - JAN 12, 2004
Very dark black, but with a red light shining through, dark brown, dense head, dissipating. Chocolate (quite a lot of it), very vinous - and alcohol in the nose. Very rich, vinous taste; some chocolate, quite malt-sweet. Fruit, and lots of it - dark, sweet, but not excessively - like not quite ripe blueberries. Taste is rich, mouthfeel is filled, but the texture is surprisingly thin. The palate/aftertaste seems to dissolve, but a warming alcohol sensation keeps going on. My wife finds an aftertaste as from malt that has been left lying too long. I cannot quite disagree... This is weird. At the same time surprisingly rich and satisfying, it seems to die after the rich gulp you swallowed. I can recognise the stabs at some Belgian trappists and top ales (although sweeter than any) - but I miss abysmall depths of complexity.

A good dark malty ale. Kinda like Pete's Wicked in Color and Flavor. Goes good with food.

Goblincat (399) - Petersburg, Michigan, USA - JAN 9, 2004
UPDATED: APR 4, 2004 Bottle. Nice dark brown color. Slightly sour aroma filled with fruit and pepper. I like the large number of flavors that spread throughout the mouth and the nice warn sensation that follows. This beer hides the alcohol well and leaves a nice clean and bubbly finish.

Wrath (362) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - JAN 5, 2004
Dark brown color.Fruity sweet aroma.Nice complex mix of flavors that brings spices and fruits together in a very nice marriage.Alcohol is hidden nicely but does show up as it warms.Finish is long with the typical Unibroue bread flavor showing up.

zborgerd (187) - Illinois, USA - JAN 2, 2004
Dark as can be and pours with a mean head. Complex flavors and ample (perhaps a bit too much) sweetness. Definately bold, but better dark ales have been made. Still, nice for the price. I prefer a doughier strong ale though.
