Viper666 (3289) - Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 14, 2013
Bouteille 750ml. De couleur brune foncée et voilée. Nez de malt rôti doux, léger de café, moyen de mélasse et de sucre brûlé et léger de levures fruitées (prunes, notes de raisins vineux). Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement élevé et une texture très légèrement aqueuse. Goût fruitées légèrement sûr (cerises sûres, léger de prunes, faibles notes de raisins vineux) lors de l’entrée en bouche suivi d’un goût de malt rôti doux aux notes brûlées, léger de café avec de faibles notes de mélasse sucrée puis en finale l’on retrouve un léger goût de fumée de bois. Post-goût légèrement amer de rôti et de café avec des notes acides de fruits (moût de petits fruits). Metalchopz (3536) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 13, 2012
Totally forgotten this one in the cellar (damn !!). Pours a dark brown colour with a big beige head that is fizzy and disappears quickly. Reminds me of pouring a cola. Alright, well this one smells a bit like cork, so it did go bad (at only 5% ABV and being so old). Still, notes of roasted malt and apples. Bland boring mouthfeel and taste of burnt malt, with again, the fruit (apples). Great I was able to purchase a few of these back in the day, but nothing special (and now I have one left for more cellaring - which is not needed, ha). radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 24, 2007
Dark brown in colour, thin fizzy beige coloured head, some light lacing. The aroma is of apples, light malt and not the usual Unibroue yeast that you come to expect in their beers. The flavour is quite watery and very lifeless, no yeast flavours which is a major disappointment, very light spice. Lightly bitter mouthfeel, light body, medium/high carbonation. Finishes quite light and very boring. This is nowhere near what you would expect from a brewery such as Unibroue. This is a very sad beer from start to finish.

No best before date.
750 ml bottle a bit below cellar temperature, Unibroue glass (of course), March 2007. Fizzy dark tan head is quickly depleted atop the murky dark reddish-brown liquid…..faint raspberry-cherry notes and soft cocoa in the nose…..utterly bland, highly and seemingly artificially carbonated, a bit like a shot of YooHoo mixed in with Sprite and a bit of fruit juice, not really any beerlike qualities at all, dry and thin and a bit brackish/chalky to finish, near-repellant and perhaps a new low for this once-great brewer. mds (2256) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 12, 2007
Bottle. Pours a muddy brown coloured body with a white-yellow small head. The aroma is toasty and yeasty. Over-carbonated body with metallic and rubbery flavours.

As soon as I popped the cork the bottle had a mild gush. The pour reveals a dark, opaque brown color with a thick, diminishing, bubbly light brown head. The aroma has some roastyness and something burnt and sweet. The flavor is really bad, cardboard and rubber hmmmmm. The body is really light and the texture is boring. What did the Carnaval de Québec do to deserve a beer like this ? CapFlu (5132) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 6, 2006
(750ml bottle) I have seemingly found a "good" bottle? (Thanks Luc!) Pours a medium, foamy light brown head with a Trois Pistoles colour. Nose is very yeasty, coffee and even beef jerky with a lemon-citrus twist. Flavour is thin and watery. Mild plum, malt and a coffee tonic elixir. What happened here? rsans (125) - Pont-Rouge, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 1, 2006
Bottle (750ml). Dark brown. Aroma of sweet malt. A very peculiar and somewhat offensive taste of smoky dry roast malt. This beer is not a good representative of Unibroue product.

Hazy dark brown hue, with a frothy tan-colored head, yeasty, dark malt, brown sugar, hint of fruitiness in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a cold dark coffee note, vinous and winey yeastiness character, here it seems we had problem, with the yeast, hint of fruitiness, nutmeg spiciness, leading towards an acidic fruity malty finish. So far as i know, this is the most awful beer from unibroue.
