It’s a belgian. Belgian spices. Has a little fruit. Darker than most. All the Unibroue beers taste the same to me. Best thing about this one is the label.

750 ml. bottle. Pours a dark cherry brown with a decent tan head. Aroma of fruit, malt, spice, and yeast. Taste is dark sweet fruit, malt, yeast, spice, and caramel. Excellent.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours dark reddish-brown with a tan head. Taste dark fruits, belgian yeast, tart. I thought this was good. I would drink this again.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a cola and bourbon cocktail-brown with a large, fizzy, tan head. Cola nose with some mild Belgian notes. Full body. Much, much less carbonation than the liveliness on the pour would suggest. A touch of red wine vinegar, apple, prune, a pinch of tobacco, and cherry flavors. Some balancing bitterness toward the finish. Good brew.

Deep red/burgundy with very little head. Lots of cherry and plum flavor yet very mellow alcohol taste for a big beer. Drinks like a port wine. Great with a dark cigar.

12 oz. bottle. Dark burgundy color, with a thin, beige head. The aroma is caramel, and cola-esque, with notes of cherries, milk chocolate, cloves, and syrup. The flavor is very sweet, with a light tartness and pretty strong, savory spice. Heavy body, sticky, and very effervescent. This beer is delicious, and the mouthfeel is perfect.

Yeast, fruit, spice and malt on the nose. Complex flavours- plum, cherries, chocolate. Smooth but hot. Lingering taste. Pours dark with nice head. This is a serious bear .

This deep black colored beer has a sweet inviting aroma. It has flavors of raisins and oats. Very well put together.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a 750 ml into a Spiegelau tulip. DISCLAIMER: it’s Unibroue night and I’ve had several 750’s prior to this.
A: Very spicy in the nose, with coriander and pepper on top of a mix of caramel and cherries. The identifying Unibroue yeast is strongly present in the nose.
A: Pours a beautiful dark reddish brown color with a small tan head that quickly disappears.
T: Follows the nose, but not exactly. Complex dark fruit notes (dates, raisins, chocolate covered cherries) with cocoa, toffee, light vanilla notes, light notes of Belgian yeast and green apple.
P: Medium body and moderate carbonation.
O: Perhaps the best beer from Unibroue. A world-class Belgian strong dark ale. I have to imagine that the Belgians are worried about getting out-Belgianed by some Canadians.

Bottle. Dark black pour, lasting fizzy quarter inch head and an aroma of boozy plums. Flavor was nice creamy malty plums, hints of black cherries and alcohol and finished with a warming aftertaste. Solid and well priced.
