Strong Belgian type ale similar to a Port wine ! Is as dark as can be, mellow in taste with an aroma of ripe fruits. It can be compared to an old porto and is brewed from well roasted malt.

Opened up nicely after warming. Murky brown, with a thin tan head. Aroma is of sweet, fruity malts. Flavor is accentuated by alcohol warmth. Again, dark, sweet fruits hit home here, with hints of grape and caramel developing as the beer warms. Kind of thin-bodied, but the complexity makes up for this fact.

Caramel colored beer. Nice looking. Sweet aroma. Raisen, caramel, and grape flavors bursting through my mouth. An awesome beer with great quality from our neighbors to the north. My favorite from Uni!

Dark tan head, nice laceing hanging on. Beautiful clear amber color with ruby highlights. Fruity spicey nose , some alc. also. Body is med/full , nice mouthfeel, carbonation is a little high. Fruity , yeasty , earthy notes, some cinnamon, vanilla, lots going on. Finish is dry and fruity. Need to lay some down.

I enjoyed this but don't think it lives up to the hype. I don't think Unibroue is capable of making a bad beer.

Beer pours (in Chimay glass) a very dark red-brown with head disapearing to absolutely nothing. Aroma is of sweet apricot, plum. Flavor is cherry, woody, alcoholicy. Beer is ok. Nothing special. Sampled at 73 degrees Fahrenheit.

UPDATED: NOV 16, 2003 Dark brown with a red gleam. The head is dense, generous and it accompanies you through your journey. Malty and fruity aroma of grape. The taste is complex: an adequate balance of chocolate, roasted caramel, cherries, grapes, spices, yeast (less than Unibroue's standard). A light alcohol (not quite well-hidden, but about what I expect from good belgians of this ABV) bitterness joins you until the end. It's a rich and complex beverage, but while it's probably not overrated, I prefer many other belgian strong ales to this one..

wnp22 (698) - Toronto (Roncesvalles Village), Ontario, CANADA - JUL 13, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 10, 2004 Deep, mirky brown/plum colour. Head has nice lacing and a slight off-white colour. Scent has slight alcohol presence, fruit plum scent is also present. Slight yeasty scent. Taste is malty, yeasty and fruity. Very subdued flavour. Reminds me of Rochefort 10, but with a more pronounced raison/plum flavour. Finish is light and crisp though. Very good. Its like eating christmas pudding in a glass.

NectarFarm (128) - Calgary, CANADA - JUL 11, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 12, 2003 SO many amazing complex rich and varied flavours. The smell is of ripe fruit and a subtle grape. The first taste assaults the taste buds with a perfect balance of malt, alcohol and balanced bitterness. This beer pulls of a magnificent uncloying sweet fruit throughout and the finish begs the mouth to taste more.

UPDATED: SEP 30, 2012 Crushing... just a crushingly good malt. It’s a classic case of the whole being greater than the sum of the... blah, blah, blah.............. I have my stash located in a tornado/hurricane/earthquake/beer-leaching-buddy-p metal strongbox. Each year, the T.P. is stored to create a past for tomorrow.... and each year the past is savored today. Aaah yes, all things flow into one... and a river (of beer) runs through it.
