2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
It’s sad to say but I finally am not wowed by a brew from Unibroue. Everytime I pass a bottle of the Maudite I salivate. I tried this one. Dark caramel color. No head. High carbonation. Welch’s grapejuice, Sunday communion sensiblity. Lacks body. Seems too simplistic, like some first draft of a brew or first batch gome awry. Floral, fruity but lacking the booziness. But then again every brewery is entitled to at least one brew you are not thrilled about.

Un nez aux notes de vin mousseux/champagne. En bouche, les cerises et autres fruits rouges agés font leur entrée, dans une corps plutôt pétillant. L’alcool est très bien cachée et c’est étonnement raffraichissant pour une bière à 10.5%! Unique!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark brown pour with small tan head. Chocolate malty smell, caramel toffee and burnt sugar and a hidden alcoholic nose. Mildly sweet and a pretty huge alcoholic warmth. Chocolate and dark roasted coffee beans and some apple/pear like aftertaste. Medium bodied with quite the carbo bubbels. Really really love it! From a trade with Alehunter, thanks a lot for this brew Dominic. My first Canadian beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
(750mL from the LCBO, aged 1 year) Pours a very deep brown with mahogany highlights, like a strong cup of coffee, with a big pale tan head of fine bubbles, lots of lace. Aroma is dark fruit (seems figgy), dark candy sugar, very bready yeast, a bit of cherry note and maybe slight toast in there too. On the palate there is dark grape juice, candy sugar, some other misc. dark fruit character, slightly toasty/nutty but not very much. Yeast character throughout the sip. There is some currant/grape character in the middle and a definite dry/bitter character to the finish with persistent yeast/fruit. There is decent concentration of flavour, but it’s not shockingly intense. There is a fair amount of alcohol warmth in the finish, but probably not enough to match the ABV. The palate is medium full and would be slightly sticky without the high, prickly carbonation. I like this, it’s a good Belgian strong dark, but maybe just lacks the complexity to kick it into that top rank.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This has been in my fridge forever. There was a time when I loved unibroue, now it takes a lot to get me to want to open one up as they all taste and feel the same, and not in a favorable way to me. Dark brown with a creamy tan head. Aroma of liquid bread with toasted malt, yeast and light fruit. Taste of strong bready yeast, brown sugar, mild dark fruit and some sweet malt. Finishes up a bit boozy and so uninspiring. I promptly filled my spot in the fridge with Unibland 17, wonder how long that will sit there.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Dark with an effervescent but quickly disappearing head. Light fig and date sweetness followed by a moderately liquorice aftertaste. Lighter body than the color suggests and highly carbonated. Can't believe the ABV quoted until you drink the whole bomber. Luverly!!!

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
The aroma is Belgian yeast, earthy. Pours dark brown, the head is light brown, frothy, fully diminishing with excellent lacing. The taste is a light sour with some bitterness. The body is medium/full, the texture creamy, the carbonation lively and the finish a long bitter/sour. A good beer. Always been a Canadian fan, since we have to go south to get there! And Unibroue is one of the best!
