COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Somewhat fruity, but yet complex aroma. Very nice balance in the body between the alcohol, hops, and sweetness. Another great beer from an incredible brewery.

rauchbier (3590) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - MAY 7, 2002
Moderate rocky head with good lacing on top a deep red brown ale. Aromas of yeast, dough and berries. Tastes like a chewy fruitcake with hints of blackcurrant, cherry and a faint licorice note. Excellent mouth coating finish that never gets cloying. A top beer.

Dark, dark, almost purple or very deep red. Roasty-toasty aroma with a hint of apple, red grapes, and something a bit tart smelling like cranberry. Alcohol was present in the nose as well. Sweet and malty with persistant alcohol tinge. Finishes with a apple-cinnimon sweetness that is almost lost to the alcohol. A little less carbonation and better masking of the alcohol would make this even better. It is very available in the Chicago area, and I would have picked it up much sooner had I seen it was so well rated.

Re-Reat 4/30/02 WEll im on resampling streak right now and although i still love this beer itís not quite the perfection i once thought. Great wine/oak/ripe fruit flavors. A truly great beer. Perfect, simply perfect.

ravidesai (947) - Bombay, INDIA - APR 29, 2002
deep red-brown color, beige head. sweet and spicy but plenty of hop bitterness for balance. one of unibroues better offerings that lies somewhere between a dubbel and tripel.

A very nice Belgian style beer. A nice sweet flavor with pleasant malt taste at first. Well worth the money.

Not many better. To me a combination of the finest Trappist beers with a fine Belgian Strong. SO complex, yet easily drinkable. A new favorite!

My favorite Unibroue product - and Iíve had lots of them. A bit too carbonated, though.

Fruity malt aroma, dark brown body with a red tinge & beige head. Big initial malt flavour which seems slightly roasted. Slightly sweet with dark fruit notes but also some bitter elements. Really complex & winey in a great way. Absolutely to my taste. THANKS DUFF!
