Very easy to drink, or should I say dangerously easy to drink. No booze burn which isn’t easy when your over double digits abv. Went extremely well with the spicy Indian dish for dinner, and used their recommendation for an after dinner drink. Dark fruit, mulled wine flavor, nice easy carbonation, smooth like velvet.

Bouteille 750ml de noire avec une belle mousse bien dense. Arôme de cerise, de réglisse, de cassonade. Arôme complexe et enivrante. Au goût on retrouve des notes de cerise, un peu d’acidité et d’amertume avec une présence d’alcool. Elle est assez douce malgré tout et un peu sucré. Très bon produit.

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!

Mpuntmuts (137) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 21, 2013
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.

(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.
