4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Transfer from BA review on 11-5-12-
Poured from bottle into Delirium Tremens Tulip glass
Appearance – Pours a deep ruby/mahogany color with a big cream colored head. The head fades leaving a modest level of lacing on the sides of the glass.
Smell - The aroma is a blend of fruit, booze, bread and yeast. The strongest are fruit aromas of a red wine grape smell with apple and orange mixed within. With all these aromas is also a spice aroma which goes quite nicely with the bready and yeasty aromas.
Taste – The taste begins bready with some spicy flavors. The brew quickly sweetness as the fruit flavors detected in the nose come to the tongue. It begins with the apple and orange coming to the tongue, with the red grape soon following. The wine like characteristics get stronger. More red grape comes to the tongue and is accompanied by an increase in the alcohol flavor as well. In the end these booze and wine flavors, when mixed with some of the breadiness and spice from the beginning of the taste creates a very warming feel on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is rather average in terms of creaminess and thickness with a carbonation level that is on the slightly higher side. They are quite nice for the style with the carbonation nice for the fruity flavors of the brew.
Overall – A fruity and wine like brew with a good bready and boozy taste. Rather tasty and enjoyable.

330 ml bottle into a tumbler. Pours a deep hazy mahogany with a lasting, fluffy off-white head. Aroma of plums with a bit of caramel. Rich and sweet in the mouth; warming, but not boozy. A touch of sour finish. Delightful.

750ml bottle served in an oversized wine glass. Big bready spicy plums & raisins very rich. Full bodied with a spritzy mouthfeel. The taste is tangy plums, bready & spices. Very fruity Belgian goodness. A Quebec classic.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Unibroue classic since 1992, this Belgian-style heavy ale boasts a complex and tempting aroma of chocolate, cocoa powder, gingerbread, banana, orange and cloves; sweet taste, deep maltiness, exciting spicy notes, warming alcohol finish. Very well-made, very satisfying and better than many actual Belgian examples of the style.

Bottle shared at a tasting at Dancing Camel. Hazy, murky dark amber. Chilled honey, a little onion, then honey - lots of honey - in the nose. Sweet, malty and heavily fruity taste. Full-bodied, mildly carbonated, long, red apple finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: AUG 3, 2014 appearance of bottle (label and gold bottleneck) just not corresponding with the beer itself. pours a thin rapidly disappearing white to beige head with a very nice reddish-brown blurred colour. funny, but i smelled hints of tuna in the nose. first sipp was very nice. aftertaste unfortunately becomes more and more metallic the warmer the beer gets. a very nice beer. also tastes like a very good dark Weizen. don’t look at the bottle too much, focus on the beer.
