Yeasty and very clean. Like a blond yeasy beer with black colour agents added. Still not a bad brew.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - APR 12, 2003
750 ml bottle. Pitch-black; like a Belgian scwharzbier? Totally opaque. Big frothy bubbly off-white head. Nose disappointingly mild I thought; plumy, yeasty. Flavor plummy, chocolaty, raisins, hints of lemon, black cherries, fairly intense; finish very mild and smooth. Good yeastiness, somewhat acidic. A little too simple to my tastebuds to be a "masterpiece" but totally delicious and drinkable. Unibroue can do no wrong it seems.

TAR (2501) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - MAR 27, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 13, 2003 Plum shade. Patchy, off tan foam. Lovely vinous aroma laced with sugared prune, leather, light perfume, heavy dough, port, coconut, soaked bread, wood, lactose, cassis, and very subtle underlying traces of blackberry tanginess and caramel. Prickly carbonation massages the palate. Beautiful complexity here: concord grape, fair amount of acidity, burnt sugar, figs and cream, wood, and port. Lingering acidity with a touch of prune juice and doughy yeast. More dark malts would have perfectly accompanied the acidic fruits here. Still, I loved the dryness and candied fruits.

Marc (486) - Yokosuka, JAPAN - MAR 23, 2003
Spicey old fruit and bready yeast in the nose. Deep dark chocolate brown with an oily beige head. Sweet and malty packed with dried fruits, musty wood, creaminess and some alcohol burn. Finishes with more dark fruit.

jpfrog (130) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - MAR 21, 2003
Dark with hints of red on edges of glass. Creamy light tan head that lasts throughout the beer. Sweet malts with a fruity flowery bouquet. Malty alcoholic taste that is actually quite satisfying and tasty. Nice thick lace on glass. Tastes like strawberry wine.

drismyhero (815) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - MAR 18, 2003
Malty loveliness. Very sweet sugar and bready notes. This seems to be by far the least "belgian-yeasty" of their beers I've had thusfar (aside from the Quelque Chose) although the banana esters are apparent. As the beer warms a great smooth swell of clove and spice comes through. Insationally smooth, creamy, and the alchohol is balanced perfectly. To bad this is so hard to find.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 18, 2003
Brown sugar and black bread aroma, with a hint of gingerbread. Deep brown, enormous toffee head, good lace. Caramel flavour, great bitterness. Sweet, creamy, a very good beer, but it seemed like a dopplebock?

omhper (19626) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 4, 2003
Bottled. Very dark brown. Subtle berry aroma. Dryish and lightly yeasty, otherwise surprisingly clean. Notes of sugar and perhaps chocolate. Complex, but very, very subtle for a beer of this magnitude.

21iceman40 (1731) - vienna, West Virginia, USA - FEB 19, 2003
There is nothing terrible about this finelely crafted brew. A robust brown color with a carmel colored head. Lots of flavors due to all of the spices and lots of alcohol. This is a big beer, with an even bigger taste.
