Aroma is pungently spicy with some toasty/chocolate/roasty malt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Appearance is quite dark with minimal head and minimal lacing. Flavor is sweet, with a root beer/cherry cola impression and a cinnamon and nutmeg finish - it is quite strong in this young beer. Mouthfeel is light and prickly with carbonation (as is the case for many excellent belgian-style ales). Overall this beer is somewhat unbalanced at this time, but possibly with some aging the spice will become more integrated and other complexities will develop. Still a quality beer, just needs some time in my opinion.

Dark pour. Belgian spices, some banana, nice meduim body. Drinks smoother than you might expect froma 9% belgian. Tastes like every other Unibroue - Trios Pistoles, La Fin.

Sikash (240) - North Carolina, USA - DEC 8, 2012
Poured from a bomber into a tullip glass. Pours a nice dark color with a fizzy light tan head that doesnt last too long. Aroma is spicy, some malt, herbal, dark fruit. Flavor is very dry, notes of cinnamon and alcohol with a dry bitter finish. Mouthfeel is full and heavy carbonation. Decent overall, will see how it ages.

Panzuriel (2138) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - DEC 7, 2012
Tjs 2012 VA pours a rich black brown with a very firm head of mocha small bubbles. Nose is spruce and a bit of floral hops. Some alcohol and banana on the scent as well. taste is just a hint of cherry or other red fruit, that is lightly sweet. there is a hint of cereal like earthiness in the middle. Finishes clean with just a bit warming heat. Body is fluid with just a smidge of bubbles. A very nice belgian again this year from Unibroue.

I am not the biggest Unibroue fan but this was pretty respectable and well-balanced. Lots of roasted malt and yeast on the nose. Decent belgian taste to it (dubbel-ish). Some nice complexities too of dried fruit and some spice. I was pleasantly surprised. Not the greatest by any means but enjoyable. Id be interested to see how this cellars. Well done.
