This is one dark belgian - intense brownish ruby with a large, but short-lived head - full aroma of yeast, caramel, and dark fruits - flavor is subdued but complex - caramel is present, along with plums, cherries and raisins - high carbonation after the initial pour dies down quickly, allowing the flavors to become more prominent - tiny bit of bitterness in the finish balances a bit - a very good beer, but Unibroue makes better.

Poured a deep purplish/brown, tan head with little lacing. Aroma of fruit, plum, grape, yeast, and some alcohol. Alcohol hit me on first sip, went away after four or five. Excellent fruity grape, plum, raisin flavors. Sweet in the finish. Quite good but the alcohol was a little too apparent to me.

Nice warm carmel malt aroma, thickish raisiny first taste, on 2nd taste the alcohol presence becomes apparent. That wonderful fruity carmel taste stayed with right to the end. And the alcohol warmth does creep up on you. If it were a little smoother, it would be perfect.

JasonG (776) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - NOV 13, 2003
Very, very dark color, off white medium head with nice lacing. Aroma has rich malts, dates, prunes, belgain sugar, with hints of vanilla. Flavor is spicey, sweet, malty, belgain-like. Carbonation is strong, maybe a little overwhelming. Alcohol is well hidden. A great beer.

UPDATED: JUL 7, 2004 Original Rating (8/4/9/5/18): Very dark brown, oh so close to black with a thick frothy and rocky head. Lots of fruit in the aroma, with plum, blackberry, raisin, plus yeast. Yeasty, raisin, and cereal, with a syrupy and caramel sweet finish. No sign of alcohol at all. Big and bold body, thick and warming mouthfeel.
RE-RATE: Dark brown with ruby glints. Carbonated appearance with a fizzy, frothy, slightly rocky and mostly diminishing off-white head. Toffee, chocolate, raisin, plum, dark bread, and yeasty aroma. Toffee, plum, raisin, and tobacco flavours, plus light alcohol which is well hidden for 10.5%. Full bodied, rich, and smooth. Bottle dated 03/03/2003.

La Terrible pours a deep brown, almost black color with a large smoky tan head and not much lace. The aroma is of candy sugar and dried fruit. The flavor is of dried fruit, sweet malt, a touch of port, somewhat woody, and dry in the finish. The palate is medium rich with a strong carbonation to clean things up in the end. Overall, this is a major league beer and I like it.

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 (3256) - 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.
