On tap at Brews Cafe in Granville, Ohio. Surprisingly dark ruby brown in color. Sticky sweet flavors of dark fruit, honey, yeast, and malts. Burnt sugar foremost, then subtle sweetness of fermented fruits. Very smooth with a lasting aftertaste.

Couleur brune foncé au reflet rougeatres. Aromes complexes de caramel, épices, fruits rouges, céréales, levure belge. Bon pour le style mais c’est pas mon genre de bière... Sur évalué pour moi...

loco_gallego (149) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 18, 2014
Brune foncée, reflets ruby. Voilée. Mousse beige claire, persistante. Gros lacings. Au nez très fruitée-sucré (fruits noirs plutôt). Maltage toasté chocolat. Epicée, légèrement poivrée. Caractère liquoreux. Et bien sûr levures Unibroue. En bouche encore plus complexe et balancée. Avec une certaine douceur, très très légère acidité, petite amertume herbeuse. Alcool présent. Le tout incroyablement balancé et complexe. Grosse longueur finale, plutôt sucré, liquoreuse et herbeuse. Bonne carbonatation avec du corps. J’adore cette bière.

Bottle from the only. Very bright fruit aromas, cherry plum and grape, sweet fresh juicy aromas. Wine-like. Yeast heavy aroma and very bright. Chocolate notes are subtle, lively carbonation. Full bodied and rich. Deep opaque brown body with foamy brown head.

jh773 (171) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 7, 2014
Dark ruby-brown with a thick head that smooths out and lingers for a while. Aroma is classic Unibroue yeast, slightly peppery hops, spice, warm dough. Taste is very smooth, rich and slightly fruity with some spice and a full-bodied yeast presence. Good palate; body is present but light. Slightly sweet finish with lots of cooked malt.

12 oz foiled bottle poured. Pours midnight black with a lasting cloudy head. Mild dark fruit aroma with some plum and spice. Very flavorful with some grape, dark fruit, and a ton of spice. Slightly tart as well. Well worth the low cost. Great beer.

Lore (1222) - Budapest, HUNGARY - NOV 20, 2014
Dark mahogany colour with ruby notes, moderate sized beige head which disappears quickly; aroma of candy sugar, overripe fruits, yeast, some herbal liqueur notes and alcohol in the background; taste of toasted sugar, dried fruits, vanilla; herbal notes and spicy aftertaste - excellent Belgian strong ale from the new world

Near black pour/ red in light. Small, dense khaki cap. Aroma is roasty with a little funk. Not getting the fruits it boasts on the label. Flavor is slightly fruity, toasted malt, roasty, and yeasty. High quality brew. Nice rich body.
