3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
A: Pours a sort of muddy poop brown. Looks thin... Much better in the glass where it has a subtle red hue but still remains a little dull.
S: Smell is big on this one and I could get a good wiff before I even put my nose to the glass. Fruity, musty. More citrus here than in other belgian styles.
T: Huge grape note. A little estry earthy twang. Finish is pretty smooth. Some lingering must but hits pretty well.
P: Carbonation is very playful with no aggression at all. Light-medium body.
Overall this beer is one of the best not-going-for-anything-spectacular belgians I’ve had. Very nice flavors but none are that big. It has all the characteristics of a belgian only it remains very easy to drink due to a certain lightness... Nothing I would rush out to buy but if you’re looking to step into belgians this would be a good one. Also Unibroue really doesn’t ever disappoint.
Got this one relaxing after my finishing my deck. Soar from all body parts after a day and half blitz to put this together under the rain. This is a nice beer, to accompany a good thanksgiving supper. For a dark beer, this is no stout or porter, it is a belgian. I like. Tranquillity (2480) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 30, 2017

Pitch black in colour with head that disappears quickly. Caramel, toast and. roasted malt. Sweet on the tongue. Decent beer. the sauger (93) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 4, 2017
Bouteille de 750 ml. Belle couleur noire avec un grand col. Arômes de café, de fleur et d’épices. Le goût est celui du café, des épices et du chocolat. Elle est moins gouteuse que je le pensais, mais tout de même bonne.

Arôme faible et classique de bière brune. Pas de mousse et fort noire. Très légère et pas d’arrière gout. Bière qui manque de caractère et trop floteuse Ulysse (539) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 31, 2016
