BillWyce (1086) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 1, 2014
From notes: Poured deep brown-to-black, opaque, with a 3-finger light tan head. Tannic, wine-like aroma with some wood underneath and a light roasty note. Medium body, with a brief, mildly dry finish. Wine-like flavor with notes of roasted malt and coffee beneath, with the wine-like note returning in the finish.

2014/01/29 - Pours an opaque dark brown-mahogany colour with a two finger, fizzy khaki head that reduces quickly. Aroma is Belgian yeast, roasted malts, spices bread and dark fruits. Taste is Belgian yeast, spices, roasted coffee, sweet caramel malts and dark fruits. Mouthfeel is slightly thin with lively carbonation and a sweet persistent finish. Good, but not unibroue's best.

UPDATED: JAN 10, 2014 Pours a jet black, with an off white head with aroma notes of burn?t wood, smoked malts, liquorice, unibroue yeast, and pepper. Taste notes include liquorice, fig, nuts, tannins, yeast, and spicy. The body is quite expectantly thin, with a bitter and watery finish_ chris__hartley (445) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 27, 2013
It pours black with brown highlights; the head is bone-coloured and foamy. The aroma has notes of: roasted malts, coffee, and sweet malts. The taste is light bitter; there are notes: the aforementioned aroma notes, plus some bready notes. The palate is light bodied, aqueous, and has a medium finish. Overall, sort of boring frankly. crajun (1243) - , Texas, USA - DEC 16, 2013
Nice looking dark pour. Much carbonation Some sweetness, molasses in nose. Odd thing is the taste was just there - not much too it; not bad, but nothing good either??

5oz draft into a tulip at Stillwell. Pours a deep black with a lasting beige head. Really not much of a nose; a bit of roasted maltiness, a hint of something I can only describe as burning rubber? Creamy and a bit sweet, but not much else. Maybe a bit of spiciness? Strange; was expecting something a bit more robust. Balanced, but bland. aumax1 (303) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 5, 2013
bouteille de 341 ml de noire. Arôme floral propre aux produits unibroue accompagné de note d?alcool et de houblon. En bouche le goût des différent des autres unibroue avec une certaine acidité, des notes de petits fruits, notes de bois et de mélasse.. Les arômes laissent présager quelque chose de plus puissant en bouche. Peu d?amerturme et petit arrière gout de fer. dkfinancial (3) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 15, 2013 does not count
Aromas and flavours of dark chocolate, orange peel, with a touch of nutmeg and baking spice in the background. Balanced. Long finish. Very well done. ClassyBeagle (376) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 3, 2013
FROM NOTES: July 11, ’12
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a pint glass (it’s all I had available).
A: Sweet smell, mainly of dark fruits (cooked raisins and a bit of dates and prunes) and cognac.
A: This pours out a dark brown colored body with a very tall light beige colored head. the head takes its time falling, and leaves behind small spots of lacing.
T: Very complex. Starts with the sour taste like the nose, quickly followed by strong malty, slightly fruity flavor. The malt is then succeeded by the fruitiness growing stronger. This fruitiness is reminiscent of grape-wine and plum.
P: Medium body with solid carbonation. Very smooth on the palate. Leaves a bit of sweetness behind as well.
O: Another great beer from Unibroue, very complex, very drinkable. kbudd19 (1019) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 25, 2013
Draft. Dark velvet pour, with a small finger of creamy stout looking head. Aroma of coffee, roasted malts, and lots of Belgian yeast (mild spice, lemon, cloves).Yeasty taste up front, little bit of lemon, some spice, finishes with some coffee and roasted malts. I imagine this is what a black Belgian IPA (if such a thing exists) would taste like. Very drinkable. Great stuff!
