750 ml caged and corked bottle, back of bottle says best before 04-15-2015. Served in a chalice, the beer pours very dark brown with about an inch tan head that stuck around for a little while. There’s also a decent amount of lacing. I like the aroma, the brew smells like dark fruit, brown sugar, chocolate, caramel, dark bread and a sweet spiciness. For the most part I think the taste is just like the aroma, but there’s also some earthiness and a bit of tart cherries noticeable. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s smooth, a bit coating, and has a good amount of soft carbonation. Overall I liked this, certainly worth picking up if you’ve never had it before!

Not bad but better in small doses. Has a really strong flavor that sits in the mouth a little long.

Draft at Ale Mary’s. Pours extremely dark brown with a very thin tan head. Tastes very smooth, like raisin, caramel, earth, light alcohol, malty. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like raisin, nutty, caramel, earth.

On tap it is very dark brown with a red tint and modest beige head. Taste is malt with fruit and spice in some complexity. Very smooth with great mouthfeel. There is a faint hint of alcohol but it is along the lines present in a good port or sherry, It all works nicely and is a very good beer.

Sampled at Northgate Tasting. Worth a second look since my rating was quick and much lower than the average... but this was darker with a dirtier taste, and I just wasn’t feeling the love here. Still want a second look at this one.

not sure of the age on mine, but man, is it "refined" like the brewer’s descriptions says. I had hopes for this one, but I gotta say, I think this brewery is overated and a little rough around the edges usualy. But then comes Terrible, a fantastic dark, roasted, subtly spiced belgian strong ale that made me rethink what Unibroue is capable of. Some similar flavors (dark fruit, yeast, spices) that other belgians have had, but more elegant and restrained here, with a choclatey aspect as well as wine-like complexity. Full bodied, full flavored, expertly balanced. Easily their best beer, and one of my favorite Canadian beers of any kind. "

It has a very dark brown colored body that is nearly opaque. A tall tan head of big soft bubbles slowly settles down to a finger of thick and creamy foam. Lacing is thick, sticky and coats the glass. The aroma is light and delicate. I get modest hints of sweet bready and mildly funky yeast with some fruity notes of dark cherries. There are fruity/estery notes with hints of sweet-tart black cherries, dry yeast and bready maltiness. This is balanced by a very light herbal leafy hop presence that also adds a light bitterness and a slight mineral or metallic touch. The palate feels smooth and creamy with mellow yet very active carbonation and a good solid medium to full body.

Bottle served in a tulip. Past it’s drink by date by almost a year. Pours near black with a short beige head. Almost no lacing. Nose has heavy bleu cheese, malt and background prune. Mild sweet with a hint of sour. Medium body, sticky texture, decent carbonation and a moderately dry, light bitter finish. The alcohol is well hidden. This would likely rate better if it were fresh.
