Bomber with 1yr age into a big glass mug. Has a really dark root beer brown color. Opaque. Large tan head that fizzles quick. Nose is of bread, yeasts and fruits. Smells like a belgian. Lots of fruit flavors, and yeast bread flavors. Good mouthfeel. Not too bitter, and not too malty. Pretty nice Belgian.

Poured into a tulip glass. Pours an inky black, with a large rocky brown head which slowly dissipates and leaves good lacing. Nose is chocolate and coffee. taste is chocolate, coffee, and dark fruit. Delicious. Another winner from Unibroue.

one year old 750 ml Bottle.. I’ve had this beer quite a few times and never had the chance to review it.. Nice thick layer of dark foamy head (a whippet I like to call ha ha ) very delicate beer for a quad smells like dark chocolate, good cofee, very grainy smell, wow... the taste is even better cofee and figs a small hoppy aftertaste, some other spices very crisp when aged mix with Unibroue’s one of a kind yeast.... it doesn’t get any better than this !!! in my top 10 if not my top 5

Nice malty spiced aroma (rum?) Dark chocolate color with a thin but creamy head. Strong but smooth taste. Sweet finish. Excellent for the class. Excellent drinkability for the class also!

Emeister84 (867) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAR 11, 2014
Aromas of clove and other spicy phenols, and dried dark berry fruit, roasted malt, and subtle banana. Very dark, almost black, with ruby-bronze highlights, head is minimal but long-lasting. Dry and spicy, with a savory earthiness, herbaceous, bitterness redolent of citrus fruit rind. Medium bodied, refreshingly carbonated, finishes with lingering fruity esters and earthy bitterness.

Tap pour at Devil’s Advocate. Tulip glass with a deep plum color. This one is definitely in the Belgian sour vein. Aroma is really good. Taste is dark fruit and sugar prevalent. The end is slightly bitter but overall quite easy to drink. Not sure more than one in a night is recommended.
