I have to say I think this is the best beer that Unibroue makes. What a rich malty and fruity flavor. Deep and rich, a nice beer to relax to at the end of the day.

A hazy deep red beer with nice brown head. The aroma is very sweet with notes of prunes, raisins, wood, oranges, yeast, and ginger. The flavor is also very sweet - a little like eating English Licorice Allsorts - with notes of oranges, licorice, prunes, wood, cinnamon, and even coconut.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(Bottle 34,1 cl) Unclear brownish with a thick, creamy, beige head leaving a nice lacework in my glass. Vinous, port-like aroma with very evident alcohol. Lovely, full body with plenty of roasted malt. Quite fruity notes - dried fruits as raisins, dates and prunes - and also overripe plums and apricots. The flavour is sweetish but never cloying. The alcohol is warming but never overpowering. Has to be one of the best Trappist-style beers produced outside of Belgium. 281205

Bottled. Dark reddish brown colour with a nice creamy off-white head. Malts, dry dark fruits, slight yeast and caramel in the aroma. The flavour is very full, dry dark fruits, caramel malts, vanilla, slight roasted twist along with berries and yeast. Also some spices in it. Very full with lots of stuff, yet wellbalanced and pleasant in any way.

Dark brown color; it pours watery, fizzy, with a medium sized head that disappears quickly, completely. The aroma, with caramel and chocolate, is distinctive and pleasant. The body is thinning, with caramel flavor, almost no sweetness, and a light oxidisation; the final is quite weak in the mouth, and also not much bitter anymore. Drinkable but too old.
Dark amber ale. Nice fresh aroma of hop and porto wine. Powerful brew, strong body, malt, raisin, alcohol, light liquorice. The palate is balanced but not very long and hoppy.
To be aged.
