Slightly cloudy peach color with a quickly deminishing medium tan head. Fruity, spicy aroma. Flavor is sweet, peppery, slightly bitter with a hint of orange, clove and coriander. Finishes with a lingering spicy aftertaste.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A very smooth and complex belgian. Coriander, caramel, and a little hop bitterness all blended well in the initial taste. Finished a little bit drier, but a good all around brew. Masks the alcohol very well.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Slightly cloudy amber with a large creamy off white head. Aroma of toffee, butter, alcohol. Good carbonation. Alcohol, pepper taste but the alcohol tste and warmth dominate as this becomes one dimensional.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Not as good as the other Unibroue beers, but still worthy. A little too over the top on the yeasty flavors, but all is still well with this drink.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 12, 2004 Appealing bright amber color with dense white head. Very fine yeast sediment has an intoxicating swirling action in the glass if a little gets decanted. Very sniffable, with tart fruit and spice notes. Tongue-numbingly medicinal flavors. Spicy, slightly peppery, underlying sweetness. Somewhat complex, the phenolic character fades a bit after a few sips.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Nice orange-gold body with swirls of sediment dancing in the glass. Thick rocky off-white head. Aroma of citrus and spice. Flavor is spicy sweet with yeasty notes, very carbonated. Alcohol well hidden. I am beginning to become a big fan of Belgian Strongs.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUL 28, 2007 Nice orangish-amber color with a quickly dissapating light light tan head. Somewhat of a citrus-like aroma-maybe ginger as well? Palate has very low viscosity and isnt as thick as the other 2 unibroue’s ive had. There is notable carbonation-similar to trois pistoles. The flavor matches its aroma--not too strong, but you really have to work to pick out the mild hints. Finish is pretty smooth, without much of an aftertaste. 8% Ethanol is hid quite well.(8/4/8/4/16 4.0)------- 7/28/07-------& ounce bottle. Aroma is fruity, pineapple-like, estery one which is typical of the Unibroue yeast strain. There is a moderate spiciness present in the aroma. A few sweet hints are also detected retronasally. Moderately hazy amber-copper body present with a large, frothy, creamy off-white head present. It leaves some nice lacing. Spritzy, carbonated start which seems a little lacking flavorwise. The middle has plenty of roasted malts going on with a touch of yeast’s fruity esters. Pineapple. Finishes a bit spicy and has a nice, warming sensation. I don’t know, the flavor on this seems more subdued that I would care for. Above rating is for the re-rate.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A dark honey, amber color. Some sediment in the bottom, it looks almost like thick ground pepper. The head is fairly close to pure white. Fair amount of carbonation. Yeasty aroma, with some sweetness. The flavor is fairly complex, a subtle sweetness and light mouth combine to give a well rounded ale. Again, I am impressed by the quality of the ale coming from Unibroue.
