Black like night with thick head. Aromas of cream chocolate, sweet prune/raisen, spice and a cherry quality. Molasses, cherry, honey, fig, melon?, flavors erupt on the palate. Fun beer to drink.

Dark dense brown appearance, moderate short-lived foam. Malty, roasty aroma with mint leaf and coriander spice. Sweet clove palate, minty fresh, dries out mid-palate to a coffee roastiness. Malt and spice linger throughout.

This was outstanding. I only managed to get a small sample of this but wow, it was incredible. The aroma was that of dried fruits, maybe raisens or figs, and the appearence was dark brown without a head. The flavor followed with the dried fruits and a nice balance of malts. This is an incredible beer and one definitely worth trying. Highly recommended.

750ml- Bottled Sept 9, 2003: Pours with an adequate, frothy head that in an instant is history......it looks and pours like Pepsi in my glass. The Unibroue yeast gives such great aromas: in this one dough, berries, plums, and prunes?; smooth, sweet and full bodied, with flavors that include dark fruits (plum, dates, raisins) chocolate, coffee, tobacco, and cola; it has a slightly medicinal and pleasant phenolic quality; its feels rather flat on the palate, though theres certainly carbonation going on. This is easily one of the most drinkable Belgian Strongs Ive had. The complexity, flavor profile, and well hidden alcohol makes this an outstanding brew with the main flaw being its (perceived) flatness that subtracts from the appearance and palate scores (this could be in the top 5 for me, otherwise). Outstanding!

Bottle-In the vaults of HI International. Pretty malty, sweet, candy sugared Belgian style ale. Yeasty, with lots of syrupy candy sugar, bit too sweet and sticky for me, definite over the top one dimensional sweetness, which i find in a lot of Unibroue beers. Didnt really dig it too much to be honest, but theres some OK flavour.

Brewtopia04. Hey, why not drink it while its free! Big, heavy, sweet, and pruney. The Unibroue guy (forgot his name) told me this joke while I was tasting: "when is a car no longer a car? when it turns into a garage!" No doubt a keen dose of Unibroue yeastiness in this beer. Reminds me of Christmas. Orange(?) corriander, pepper, grass, coffee. Awesome. This beer is all over the place yet so together.

Slightly spiced aroma. There is a weird blend of spices in this one that I cant quite put my finger on. Finishes dry with a slight aftertaste.

I told my roommate to bring me back something "terrible" from the store, and he did. Only it wasnt terrible, it was amazing. Beatiful in so many ways

Lovely bottle. Unibroue is great man. Cork pops and love ensues. So pretty. Black like coal in my chalice. Black like death in my mouth and black like night in my stomach. So black for a belgian strong. So good as well. Pours like an oreo cookie. Black as night with a brilliant white head. Head dies and nose is of chocolate. Really I feel ike someone took Chimay bleu, added chocolate and Unibroue yeast. So that means notes of Chocolate, deep malt, carbonation and jock straps. Does it get any better!? Flavors of red peppers chocolate, lemon and yeasty love. However this guy needs about a year or two to really develop. Now flavors meld rather than assert. Go get this NOW. Buy three. Drink one now and save the other two for when your children are born. Grat
