RE RATE: First tasted August 8th, 2003 at TFOB. Current tasting Nov 29, 2003 from LCBO. 750ml bottle, in Chimay trappist glass. Colour is deep dark brown almost black with little or no light passing through. The head after pour begins big, but quickly dissolves to very thin white wisps. Laces glass well, but remains very slight indeed. Aroma is stock full of fruit - incredibly intense plum and raison aroma. Befits the colour. Slight hint of alcohol. Slighty sour finish in the aroma also. Deep dark and intriguing. Flavour is, impressive to say the least. Rich plum beginning, yeasty bread like tecture with a malty sweet balance in the finish. Oh my. I am rating the flavour as a 9 only because a 10 may disqualify my vote as a Canadian judge. Palate however, is a 5. This beer is absolute heaven.

Brodie (540) - Boone, North Carolina, USA - NOV 29, 2003
Pours very dark brown, like a porter, and has a wispy beige head. Aroma is classic Unibroue - fruity, lots of plum, a little raisin, malt and peppery alcohol. Flavor is fruity, malty and spicy. Balance is close to even, finish is dry. A very good Belgian-style ale, but nothing extraordinary.

WabashMan (1024) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - NOV 29, 2003
Probably the darkest Belgian I've seen with a large tan head. Aroma is very fruity and has some yeast notes to it, as well. Some definite rich, dark fruits present in the flavor, and a nice warming finish that lasts quite a long time. Certainly one of Unibroue's best offerings.

LiebeBier (808) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - NOV 29, 2003
A really dark ale. Looks great. Plum, raisen aroma. What a nice beer, sweet malt flavors that warm the body as you drink. A perfect balance of fruit malt and alcohol that is very well hidden.

nstal (237) - Houston, Texas, USA - NOV 28, 2003
Very dark. Pours with a good solid head you'd expext from a belgian, starting brownish and finishing more cream colored. Spicy, and slightly more carbonated than I expected. The end of the 750 was better than the beginning...showing the benefits of warmth and breath. Excellent.

HighGravity (926) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - NOV 28, 2003
(Bottled Sept/9/2003) Big fruity yeasty nose. The palate is very flavorful; loads of fruit and candi sugar, with mild notes of coco and coffee. The finish goes on forever. I like this ale it is very clean and well made. A great digestif.

Cest terrible. I read the label and I still did not believe it would be this dark. It is. And it's good: a nice fat fruity nose. But the body is slim. Nicely balanced sweetness with all the various Belgian ale flavors I would expect.

jazz88 (2674) - San Francisco, California, USA - NOV 26, 2003
Bottle. Dark brown color with a laced brown head. The first hint of what was in store came as the cork came off and a red wine aroma burst forth. Dark fruits in the nose that includes blackbeeries and raisins. Dry on the plate with a complex sharp (tingle) finish. Flavored by a hint of licorice, pepper, toasted malts, and fruits. A forceful brew but not as subtle and complex as some of the other Belgians.

rosebud (47) - Portsmouth, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 25, 2003
This beer is amazing and huge. It reminds me of Chimay Grande Reserve meets Liefmans Goudenband. Pours dark and malty from the bottle with a huge creamy tight head. Aroma is fruity and yeasty. Very smooth on the palette, starts off sweet and finishes dry and tart with lots of alcohol. IMO, by far the best product that Unibroue has produced.

pivo (2672) - GERMANY - NOV 25, 2003
Incredible right from the start: great toasted malt with hints of licorice and raisins, luscious brown color and a whopping head with tight bubbles. Chocolate tones in the flavor amidst a syrupy malt body. Yeasty tastes typical to Belgian beers are perfectly blended. Loads of alcohol intensifies the flavor. A texture like silk. Just unreal.
