I have found this one at the Marche Jovi early this month. It was a 2015 selection. A testimony to this good brewery, they got the belgian style down pat. luttonm (7086) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 8, 2017
Bottle in Seattle. Thick, lingering white-tan foam on a deep, dark brown body. Spiced nose, lots of clove and nutmeg. Fully developed body, creamy and full, perfect for such an abv. Dark cocoa, pumpkin spice with clove, cinnamon, anise. This is so much better as it warms. Full body that is somewhere between a dubbel and a quad. Incredibly balanced and tasty. Intriguing flavors as well. Cake, dessert, coffee. Very nice. hopdog (13315) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 16, 2017
750ml bottle. Poured a dark brown with a medium sized tan head. Roast, caramel, dark fruits, and that unibroue yeast with the alcohol content well hidden. PorterPounder (8396) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 4, 2017
Savannah, Ga - on tap at the Savannah Craft Brew Fest. Hazy, medium brown pour, bone colored head. Aroma of brown sugar and maple. Solid full-bodied flavor, some licorice, Christmas spices, some maple syrup sweetness, Sticky, rich mouthfeel. KevinReddirt (248) - Midland, Texas, USA - AUG 25, 2017
A gladly obtained 750 ml bottle from the local supermarket, Unibroue is normally a pleasure. Uncaged, uncorked and poured it shows a red-brown body and a vigorous, tightly bubbled, tan foam. Going to my nose I get yellow fruit and something earthy. A taste delivers malt, rhubarb, carrot and plum. Interesting and curious. Dense and full in the mouth. The 10% abv is totally covered, no clue it is there. Worth the adventure.

UPDATED: AUG 18, 2017 Superb Belgian dark ale..a dubbel on steroids! Pours a dark ruby Brown with a nice lacing. Aroma of fruit and spice with notes of caramel and figs.
Taste is phenomenal...sweet with malt and notes of caramel, raisins and figs. Dry finishCarbonation is light and effervescent. Shag (3071) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - JUL 7, 2017
A dark brown color with a beige head and excellent lacing on the glass. The aroma contains some chocolate, caramel, ginger, and mint. The flavor is all over the place. Its sweet and also a little sour and also a little bit of earthiness present. More of the mint is showing up along with some ginger, chocolate, caramel, and nutty flavors. This is unique for sure but very enjoyable. Oh as for that 10% you cant tell so be careful. chinchill (5450) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 5, 2017
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2018 Poured from a 750 ml corked bottle into a goblet. BB dated 08-26-18. Lots of pressure released with the cork but the brew was well behaved and easy to pour.
Appearance: Pours a dark reddish brown; clear but near opaque. Beige bubbles form a thin layer that leaves nearly full sheets of lacing on the glass.
Aroma: spicy and fruity yeast driven complex aroma with a scent of spices, dates, dried plums, figs, raisins and other dark fruits. Spice notes include pepper, cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg. Faint hints of caramel, biscuits and toast.
Taste: Complex, spicy and fruity. Follows with aroma with added hints of cherries, wood, and burnt toast. Bitter-sweet.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a medium-high level of very lively carbonation. A bit prickly with a dry finish. Some heat is felt.
Overall: A good Dark Belgian style ale with notably complex aroma and flavor. deyholla (12663) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 3, 2017
Sampled from the tap at City Works. Pours amber with a tan head that dissipates to the edges and laces. Aroma has a decent amount of ginger with some flora and sweet grains supporting. Flavor combines ginger and light fruits with some sweet grains and a bit of flora supporting. jackl (8597) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 3, 2017
