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.

Wow. Head is initially thick but goes down fast. Aroma is that of fruit. somehow reminded me a little of raisin cinnamon breakfast pastry. alcohol content very well hidden. i couldn’t keep my hands off this one.

Murky is right...Brown appearance. Lots of particles, and great lil things floating around. Aromas of raisons and dark fruit, oak, vanilla. Vinous all the way through, alcohol and full bodied. This is great stuff, no doubt about it, a classic!

UPDATED: AUG 1, 2007 Head is large and brown, however it quickly dissipates. Color is a dark unfiltered cloudy brown. Aroma is fruity. This beer has a very unique taste. Initially the fruit dominates the tastebuds but then their is a hint of grain. Palate is fruity.

I enjoyed this one... quite similar to blue label chimay in its appearance and flavor; wonderful yeast aroma with subtle hoppiness and flavors of plum, raisin and spice... quite tart with slight roasted malt to give it that that full, rich flavor that only a belgian strong ale can deliver. Delicious.

Dark brown with generous head. Smells great--like fruit at first, then malt/yeast. Nice fruit/spice taste. Hints of berries and plum among others. The finish is malty. Very nice beer.

I love this one. I seem to love all of Unibroue’s beers, but this one might be in my opinion the best one.

UPDATED: MAR 31, 2005 Wow. Striking aroma of sweet fruit (berries, bananas) and caramel with some citric acidity or maybe green apple. High, fizzy, champaign-like head, dissipates quickly. Beautiful dark brown, slightly hazy. A fantastic mix of flavors, from banana to plum, sweet malt, some roast, a little spice, etc. Very pleasant and lasting aftertaste. Very mellow and enjoyable. Savor it.

Brown colour. Head dissipates fast. Wonderful complex aroma! Chocolate, bubblegum, orange peel, cowberries and even a touch of lambic! After all that the flavour is a bit of a disappointment! Sweet and warming, a bit like a young port wine.
