Thanks to M500 for this. Didn't know what this was when I started drinking and I was surprised by the darkness and depth of color. Upon taste noticed the Belgian fullness and dark fruits. Considerably alive with throngs of yeast flavors. There's an interesting play of mid-level plums, raisins, left-out-pears, but there's an underlying taste in the end of noticable malt and yeast flavors. Also some white pepper flavors with some spice, also the alcohol is there and warming.

One night with this beer and I got Terrible drunk. Later on, I was Terrible sick.

Great Belgian Strong ale. Fruity, spicy, and sweet flavors. Finishes smooth, clean, and crisp. Recommended.

Thin, light-brown head above a very dark brown. Very smooth and thickish with a light carbonation. Syrupy-sweet and woodsy malts. Notes of dark fruits, warming alcohol, chocolate and molasses. Earthy. Very mild bitterness; hint of sourness; some yeastiness in the aroma.

FWE beer#11. I need to get this one again. Things were getting a bit hazy at this point. Darker than expected, with some carbination around the edges. Fruity aroma, but with a hint of sour. Flavor was hard to pinpoint. I know I like it though. I did get some fruits though. Ya, I need to buy more.

Fort Wayne event. This fourteenth brew of the evening came from Flemdawg. This brew poured a large head of foamy fine to medium sized off-white colored mostly lasting bubbles that left behind a semi-opaque dark brown colored body. The aroma came off to me as yucky and hard to describe. I did not much care for that aspect of this brew. The mouthfeel was smooth and started off dryly while finishing a bit more mildly. I did not take many notes on it at this point as I was kind of turned off by it and my final comment on the flavor was, "Not great". I may have to have this one again as I am sure I am against the grain on this rating.

UPDATED: JAN 10, 2004 A dark coffee brown color with a medium off-white head. Tiresome Unibroue yeast aroma( yes they are all quality beers but the similiarity between all of them detracts), alcohol. Taste as it warms, you get a big hit of chocolate every couple of sips. Some fruit, spice, again the usual Unibroue fare. A week after I recieved this in a trade I saw it here in IL and WI, at least my label is in French. But the curious thing is the cost, it is only $5.50 a bottle while the Unibroue 10/11 goes for $8, I bought more of this.

Big THANK YOU to Jim (Flemdawg) for bringing this beer to TheDM's party! Murky brown with burgundy highlights. Small frothy off-white head but no lace. Very nice nose of apple, blackberry, hazelnut, grainy and roasted malts, pipe tobacco, and earthy yeast esters. Fruity sweet with a lightly bitter and acidic taste. While complex, it is still light on the palate due to the carbonation. Dry yet lush feel. Medium to full-bodied with a moderate alcoholic presence but not overpowering. A very good brew which will age well for another year or more.

Great color. Round, smokey flavor with hints of fruit and oak. Maybe a little over-rated, but a truely enjoyable beer. Unibroue is remarkable!

UPDATED: JAN 26, 2005 Very dark, with some light purple and murky brownish orange. Very clouded. I got no head out of mine, and I even swirled it alot. Smells of lots of candied sugar, some ripe plums, maybe a touch of maple and alcohol? Begins with a ton of malt and lots of candied sugar flavor. Wow, this is sweet. Evens somewhat, with some banana and bubblegum esters, but the hops punch Im hoping for never hits. The body is surprisingly only medium, maybe slightly medium full. Loose, somewhat watery texture, very soft. Finish improves however, with some drier alcohol notes and finally some hops and yeast. Still, the finish just dosent seem to make up for the way too sugary beginning and watery body. I want to be harsh on this beer, as I was let down by the cloyingness it provided towards the end of the bottle, but the finish showed potential. The flavor would even with cellaring, but I have to wonder about the watery smooth mouthfeel, would that hold up? I felt carbonation level was perhaps too low, did not find it to be overcarbed even up front. Im going to have to say overrated now, but lets see how cellaring goes. . .
