Bottle from LCBO. In the cellar for at least a year. This is one of the best Unibroue has to offer. Very fond of the others, but this one is just lovely. Very dark reddish brown. Aromas of raisins, grape bubblegum and smells very strongly of port. Similar flavours, with lingering port aftertaste. Very smooth.

Alpha10 (723) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 19, 2016
2016/02/19 - 2012 vintage bottle. Pours a dark brown (almost black) colour with a fizzy, khaki coloured head that immediately reduces to a patchy, lingering surface film. Aroma is vinous (port like), doughy yeast, brown sugar, dark fruits, grapes, sour notes and light licorice. Taste is dough, notes of port, slightly sour dark grapes, brown sugar and light anise. Mouthfeel is medium To full with effervescent carbonation and a sweet, mildly warming finish. Really enjoy that trademark Unibroue carbonation in this beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

fakebeersnob (325) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - FEB 12, 2016
Got a smell of brown sugar and wine (dark fruit or port type smell). Appearance is very dark brown, almost black (in the lighting I am in). There is spotty lacing that lasts for the whole time. I am getting Belgium yeast in taste (but didnt get it in the smell), a bit of sourness, brown sugar and malt. The after taste has a huge clove-like feel to it. Very high carbonation - which was too much for my liking. I let it sit for a while and it felt a bit creamier, but carbonation was still there. Felt the alcohol

natejgood (500) - Bozeman, Montana, USA - FEB 7, 2016
The cork really popped out of this bottle and the head was huge, so it took me a while to get a good pour. Pours a dark brown with a tan head. Aroma of malts and years. Flavor is sweet and malty with ripe fruit. No alcohol flavor for such a high alcohol beer, which is nice. Also pretty light and smooth in the mouth.

kbudd19 (1009) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 5, 2016
Bottle. A least a few years old. Appearance is dark black with dense white head. Good lacing and retention. Aroma is anise, some light sourness, mixed in with brown sugar and clove. Taste is stoned fruit, clove, mixed in with a hint of tartness. Really nice beer, had this fresh once and remember it tasting a lot stronger. Tasting really great right now though.

Turboninja (706) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 23, 2015
[email protected]nHum, NYC, New York. Medium aroma with plum and bourbon. Amber color with minimal white head and hazy liquid. Strong taste of cherry, plum and bourbon. Alcohol comes trough clearly. Balanced with medium taste spectrum and long cherry aftertaste. Strong/medium body with low/medium carbonation. Overall, superbly stylish and bold, still balanced product. Could have more aroma.

tekstr1der (476) - New Hampshire, USA - DEC 15, 2015
As with others from this brewery it has the same slight sourness to the aroma that I dont like. Otherwise, this pours a nice dark brown with big, lasting, dense tan head. Aroma has some malt and sour fruit. Flavor is quite different thankfully. Nice balance of malty sweetness and ripe dark fruit. A little light body, like their other similar offerings.
