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.

Taken from a sampler pack. Cellared 1 year. Another great beer by another great Canadian Brewery Smells like a Belgian Tripel/Quad. Very sweet, with alcohol undertones. Pours a dark brown/red colour. Head at beginning similar to Guinness, but it almost dissapears by the end. Taste is very sweet almost sugary. No booze flavour. Good amount of carbonation. Little aftertaste, especially for a 9% beer. Overall I was very happy with this beer. I will be purchasing as a gift pack, but not on a 6 pack of its own. MB The Beer Bearon

Originally rated on 8/4/08. It poured a dark brown body, with a light tan cap. The aroma was really nice, a mixture of cherries, apples, banana, and plum, all ripe like the bottle says. The fruit carries over into the taste, where there is also malt, yeast and a sublte sweetness that blend very well together. Even with the high alc. content it is very smooth, with a creamy mouthfeel. A beer worth seeking out for sure.

Cola coloured pour with a thick, puffy beige head. As it settles down, there is a big, yeast aroma, dried fruit, sweet malt. The taste is plummy, jammy, raisins, caramel, a little spice. As it warms up the dried fruit is more apparent, as is the booze.

Murky brown color with beige head. Aroma has dark fruits, dark sugar and some booze. Taste has some nice dark cherries and raisins, dark sugar and a bit of alcohol. Medium body with high effervescence. Nice but not one of my favorite styles of beer.

Bouteille. Nez de prunes intense, de caramel doux, de levures, d’alcool et léger de malt. Goűt de prunes (műres, cerises?) lors de l’entrée en bouche suivi rapidement par un goűt de caramel toffee sucré et un léger goűt d’herbes et par la suite d’un goűt sucré de caramel malté et de levures et un goűt d’alcool est présent tout le long. Arričre-goűt légčrement amer d’alcool et légčrement sucré de caramel. [notes 2005]

UPDATED: MAR 8, 2016 Bottle into a balloon glass. Very dark brown brew, opaque and smelling of dark sugar and yeast. Highly carbonated and at 9%, barely a hint of alcohol noted. Medium bodied, yeasty with a mild flavor of dark fruit, lots of maltiness, this is a pleasant, but somewhat understated brew. I let the bottle sit at room temperature for an hour or so to bring up more flavor, and certainly the warmer it gets, the more complex it is. The spiciness comes out, as does the alcohol, fruits and malt after another hour or so of sitting. As the website suggests, a temperature near 60f maximizes the taste profile, and my appreciation. Let’s settle for ’subtle’ flavors when chilled. The Unibrow website offers a lot of information about this brew, but nothing on the hops used. At 15 IBU, obviously they were an afterthought. A fine brew hidden for a while by excessive refrigeration and effervescence.

Mostanra már világossá vált, hogy a kanadai főzetek, különösen az Unibroue sörei a kifinomult elegancia képviselői, harsány és közönséges, robbanásszerűen ható karakterre felesleges is számítani az esetükben, különösen, ha a quadrupelek egy mintapéldányáról beszélünk. Bár azt, hogy a kategória jelenlegi 6. legjobb söreként tekintsünk rá talán túlzásnak érzem, összességében mégis egy kifogástalan belga hangulatú főzet tárul elénk a felnyitását követő percekben. Vörösesbarna színe puha és krémes habbal osztozik, illatai teltek, édeses malátásak, élesztősen sokszínűek. A kortyok gömbölyűek, simák és tartalmasak, gabonás alapoktól vezéreltek. Az ízvilág homogén jegyek halmaza, kiugrásoktól mentes, melyben minden egyes elem a helyén van - egyenes nyomvonalú, szigorú hangulatú szerkezet ad otthont a mérnöki módon megszerkesztett komponenseknek. Kenyérhéjas, kelt tésztás keretbe burkolva sejlenek fel a száraznak ható, visszafogott intenzitással bíró aszalványos, mazsolás színezetű elemek, majd állnak össze egy krémes állagú, bársonyos jellegű, simulékony és jól ismert mondanivalót hordozó karakterré a mérsékelt vérmérsékletű ízjegyek.

TET (2681) - Kaarina, FINLAND - FEB 24, 2016
A very dark brown beer, a head is big, clouding and beige. Aroma has riped fruits, raisins, prunes, flowers and some lime. Aromatic flowerness is refreshning the aroma. Taste has riped fruits, prunes, flowers and some lime. Medium bodied, strong carbonation, but softly. Strong flavours are fresh and there are not any heavy nuancess. Also great aromatic notes. The great beer. Slightly similar than the other great beer, Abbaye des Rocs Triple Impériale.
