3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Awesome art work and story, plus a great bear. Dark syrupy aroma with banana bread. Lots of flavours going with banana, caramel, molasses, and raisins. A really heavy body and low on any head or carbonation. It really coats the tongue, so the flavour sticks around for a while. A nice example of a Belgian strong.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
22 oz bottle, BB dated 11-24-2014. High end packaging with cork and wire, and gold foil on neck.
Pours a hazy mahogany with an ample bone head that has good durability. .
Aroma - unique, complex and interesting. Orange pith and dark fruits, alcohol notes and spicy yeast.
Flavor - again unique, complex and interesting, with a nice dynamic interplay that changes both within and between sips. Nice long finish and aftertaste.
Smooth, medium body, with lively medium+ carbonation
O - very enjoyable and complex beer that seems to have an ever-changing flavor and aroma. A superb Imperial Abbey Dubbel. Strongly recommended!

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle. Very dark copper color. Aroma is yeast and prunes. Taste is lemon, spice, raisins, some booze and a little bit of yeast sourness. I’m becoming a bit more of a fan of the style, which I used to hate, thanks to trying excellent brews like this.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle had many times recently revisited. Pours hazy amber color with a large beige head. The aroma and flavor have caramel malt, dark fruits, spices, the typical Unibroue yeast character, the fruit character grows with warming, some alcohol. Smooth, medium bodied, with a sweet, fruity finish. Another solid beer from Unibroue.

Aroma: yeast, bubblegum, dry plum; Appearance: dark red; medium head; Taste: medium sourness, slight bitterness; Palate: fizzy carbonation; slick texture, medium body, abrupt finish
Nice but a bit too sour and overwhelmed by plum aroma and bubblegummish yeast.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from 12 oz bottle to stout/porter glass.
Ap - 4 - nice murkey orange-red (burnt copper?) color with an off white had that sticks, but doesn’t leave much lacing
Ar - 9 - Nice! Cherry, spice, belgian yeast, figs, dates, plums
Taste - 9 - Sweet, dark fruits, raisins, plums, figs, banana bread, dark bready notes, candy sugars
Mouth/Palate - 5 - High carbonation, medium-heavy mouthfeel, Alc covered. Aftertaste is dark fruits and bread.
Overall - 16/20 - Great beer. My favorite from Unibroue is probably La Fin Du Monde. It definitely measures up to the Belgian greats!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle to pint. Best before 02-01-16. Looks good; a fairly transparent copper with fluffy off-white head. Smells of Belgian yeast and dark fruit.Plum and raisin. Tastes like it smells, but more raisin-forward. Solid on the palate. A good example of the style.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance is dark raw honey with a small off white head with heavy lacing left around the glass. Smells floral and wheaty with a bit of funk mixed in. Taste is leaves, lemon with a leather aftertaste. The carbonation was smooth and light medium. Eh....not my favorite from Unibroue.
