"to say the smoke is light would be an understatement. i don’t know if i could tell it was there if A)i didn’t know ahead of time, and B)wasn’t looking for it. this is just an average belgian ale other than that...but I gotta dock it a little extra for claiming to be something it isn’t.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy earthy amber brown with a near white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has has notes of bread and grain with a slight smokey note underlying. Flavor has a bit more smoke but is mainly bread and grains as well as a bit thin.

marcus (6538) - Sacramento, California, USA - SEP 3, 2014

Beachmaster (131) - Oklahoma, USA - SEP 1, 2014
Bomber into a pint glass. Pours a dark amber, with a huge white head that slowly fades into a disc on the surface, leaving good lacing. Nose is faint yeast and smoky notes, and the taste is malt and caramel, with a nice whiskey flavor on the end. Finish is long and smooth. Well-made, but not my favorite Unibroue.

Pours initially with towering fluffy head. Dark golden, slightly cloudy, lots of fine, lively carbonation. Aroma of wood smoke and cooked grains, taste is more smoked malt, lightly toasted, light bacon. Some caramel and toffee. Very nicely done.

Dark orange with a big beige head. Aroma of Unibroue yeast and malt. Taste is lightly sweet and a little sour. Only a slight smokiness. Ok.

cheap (4080) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 19, 2014
Darker and more cloudy than a pale ale. Looks like lighter iced tea. Typical uni yeasty smell. Odd leather taste but its better than most of the uni’s I’ve had, yes much more well behaved. Quite easy on the buds and now that I see its a smoked, its probably one of the better smoked beers I’ve tasted my friend. I almost enjoy this stuff. Yes, so well behaved you would never know this is a smokey. I’m glad to have tasted this brew thank you magic tree.

Pours hazy copper with a white head. Aroma of wheat and blegian yeast. Taste is sweet, spicy and bready.
