Elizavyeta (110) - Minnesota, USA - JUL 30, 2007
A fantastically nutty beer with a strong aroma of hazelnuts, peat, and fruit. Pours with a distinctive head. Is lightly carbonated, but not disruptive to the overall flow of the beer. Would do very well as an aperatif!

750ml bottle. Pours amber with a nice fluffy white head. Smells of dry pilsner malt, some peppery splashes, some hints of citrus, residual sugar, spice. Tastes dry and citrussy with a very palatable malty body.

Bottle shared with northropfrye. Aroma is sweet wheat, Shimery head, which behave unusually creating a circle in the middle of my glass. Orange glow appearance. Sparkling palate. Taste is bittersweet, just a touch of bitterness, suggestion of clove. I love this beer a lot.

Unibroue Seigneuriale 750 bottle Medium pour in a tulip glass Recent brewing, corked out 12/06 Poured a murky light brown, with amber highlights, with an average fizzy somewhat diminishing off-white head. Smelt of strong sweet oranges, bananas, tutti frutti, and cloves, with light vanilla and buttered toffee. Taste was upfront bittersweet strong cloves, ginger and other spices, mushroomy yeast and sweet bread pudding followed by more of the same, with an accentuated bitter and pungent tastes, on a long finish. Palate was medium to full bodied, softly carbonated, although a bit prickling at times, creamy, moderately astrigent and lightly alcoholic. Overall, the taste of cloves is fantastic here: prominent, but not overbearing on the other qualities of the beer. Excellent overall, but I’m a huge cloves fan.

750ml bottle yields a gorgeous dull amber haze with an enourmous 3" head, purely complimentary. fresh aromas of nutmeg, clove, cinnamon are followed by lymon and orange peel goodness. also notable hops in the aroma that manage to carry over onto the mid-palate. there’s a strong burnt citrus flavor here that is rather appetizing. my palate is actually overwhelmed with complexity here, and i still have another pint glass to enjoy. the caramel/butterscotch hits the back-palate, while spice rules the front and the mouthfeel. i highly recommend this to anyone who hasn’t tried it.

Lucky enough to find this gem on tap at Darcy McGees in Ottawa. Beautiful amber hue. Otherwise what you’d expect from a fine Belgian, dare i say save a trace of apple. Definitely one of the best.

Unibroue is far and away my favorite brewery in Canada. Being opened by Sapporo doesn’t hurt them in any way. Just awesome in every bottle.

Not much in the aroma. This beer seems to be a light Belgian strong. Not real spicy or strong in the alcohol, but good nonetheless. Pretty smooth for the style really.

Braudog (5591) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - JUN 1, 2007
750ml bottle, corked and caged. Solid orange with a nice airy and life-like head. Mellow but very discernable spicy nose. But it drinks a lot smoother and less caustic than the aroma would suggest -- Nice complex flavors and chewy ... bit of citrus rind, corriander, and malt. Nice, nice brew. (#2948, 6/1/2007)
