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.

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.

Wow, what a beer. I really enjoyed this. Never saw a belgian so dark in color. Malty flavor, with some roastiness. Really yummy.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - JAN 17, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2004 Just a bit too alcoholic for me. Pours black with a tan head. Roasty Belgian like aroma. Malty flavor, with some subdued roastiness. If they would just unleash the dark malts on this and make it more in the open....YUM

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) - Suburbia, 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 (9470) - 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.
