jesperhammer (4874) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 18, 2013
15-MAR-2013, bottle @Sonni, @Ulkløbben tasting.
Clear amber with lasting off-white head.
Sweet aroma of bready malt, fruit, dried fruit, caramel, nuts. Very barley wine-like. Quite hoppy with some grape fruit. Not really a belgian strong ale or is it just age showing? Very fine brew. Koelschtrinker (21318) - K?ln (Cologne), GERMANY - OCT 18, 2012
Süß-hefiger, leicht honigartiger Beginn, starke Karbonisierung. Süßer werdend, elicht Alkoholnoten. Hefig, süß-würzig. 11/9/10/10/9/10

Hazy amber beer, fluffy white head. Light palate, slightly soft. Creamy soft malt, a little dry. Yields to pleasant fruits, mild orange and a trace of pear. Finishes soft and dry with a carbonated sting. A little yeast in there as well. Pleasant enough if a little dry.
Pours a deep amber colour, clear with a creamy off-white head. Aroma is fruity with coriander spice, lemon peel and orange scents, and oak notes. Taste is quite sweet but not overwhelming, with no significant bitterness aside from some undertones. Full body, creamy-smooth mouth feel and softer carbonation. Amazingly good beer. thirdeye11 (6162) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 15, 2012
(750ml bottle thanks to JJFoodie) cloudy medium orange, ring of tan bubbles. Nose of sherry/port, rich, dark fruits like dates and raisins, light alcohol. Taste is oddly acidic, golden raisins, seems like alcohol Heat but almost more like chipotle/ancho chilies, interesting and well carbonated.

Bottle 750 ml. Pours dark golden with a medium beige head. Some lacing. Aroma of candy sugar, dark fruits, spices, porto and caramel. Taste of dark fruits, caramel and porto. A little acidity. Medium to full body and alcohol is well hidden. Probably a year or two past is prime, but still a very good and complex beer. BeerGolem (829) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 26, 2012
Bottle was from 2007. The aroma was rich and complex: porto, madere, malt and some roasted bread. Had lost the specific aroma of Unibroue’s yeast. The taste did not totally lived up to the aroma though. Full bodied beer, some warming alcohol.
Bouteille de 2007. La bière a bien vieilli. L’arôme est riche et complexe: porto, madere, malt et pain grillé. Perd l’arôme de levure spécifique à Unibroue. Le goût, cependnat, n’est pas à la hauteur de l’arôme. La bière est ronde en bouche. Goût d’alcool ressenti. jtclockwork (17100) - , New Jersey, USA - MAY 20, 2012
