Damn this is good. Black brown with quickly receding head. nose of malt and dark fruits. malt sweetness, chocolate, black licorice. Well hidden alcohol delivers a nice warming finish.

Kinz (3188) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - NOV 11, 2003
Very dark brown appearance, schwarzbier-like, so-so head. Aroma of raisins, port, dried prunes. Not much flavor when cool, but really opened up tremendously as it warmed, with notes of dried fruit, port, raisins, and a bit of chocolate. Sweet overall, and with a definite yeasty character. A bit harsher in the mouth than I would like, but still a very good offering from Unibroue.

Spicy maple sugar aroma. Very warming, yet pleasant, alcoholic presence. No head whatsoever. Light prune color. Dark honey and raisin flavor, mild hop bite. Dry finish.

Browni 750 ml bomber with a crowned cork. The pour is an almost black brown color, big fluffy tan head, receding to little more than a wisp presently, and then a mere halo of white. No residual lacing. Aroma is at once fruity, with a hop pungency which borders ever-so-slightly on the barnyard. Citric burn remains a nasal reminder. Nicely full bodied and creamy up front, a smooth malty mouth and this is aggressively followed by candy sugar and hops, a bit of smoke and fermenting black fruits along for a ride. Not fantastic, but a solid bruin out of Unibroue, one that will hit you in the face, but leave you asking for more.

Sweet malty aroma, with hints of plum. Very dark opaque brown color. Strong flavor. Very sweet, malty, plum and yeast. Lots of fine bubbles. Very tingly! I really enjoyed this one!

loweredsixth (946) - Clovis, California, USA - NOV 8, 2003
Deep dark brown color (opaque) with a large beige head. The aroma was of candy...sugar...prunes...distinct Unibroue yeast. The flavor was large...extremely sweet...prunes, candy, sugary, yeasty. The feel was rather crisp for this large of a beer...soft, semi-dry finish.

jeffc666 (1984) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - NOV 8, 2003
Very dark brown/ruby color. The tan head is very nice and creamy. Lacing is suberb. Aroma is very yeasty and fruity. Hints of alcohol on the nose. The flavor is a very complex but not overwhelming. Sweet malt, chocolate, and yeast. Did I mention the yesat? The body is full and tingly. The caronation and alcohol lead to a very lively mouth experience. Pretty nice beer.

DavidP (1746) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 8, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 19, 2004 Dark brown body with a foamy tan head. Malty, yeasty aroma with some raspberry bubblegum notes. The flavor seems simple but really isn’t - there’s the expected malt and yeast but there’s taffy/ bubblegum and tart fruit (raspberry / apricot?). Good stuff!

Pours dark heavy with a big light brown head that reminds me of a milkshake. Very nice fruity smell with a friendly inviting bubbly palate. Yummy chocolate, malty and hoppy taste with a sour after taste. Very smooth good strong beer.
