Inveigler's rating

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 15/20

Afine showing from our old Belgian Canook friends. This rating is about my 4th attempt at this brew and I think that I am finally starting to get what every else sees. Pours muddy with a dark, rocky head that looks vaguely pinkish in the light I subject it to. Nice sweet aroma with plenty of those Belgian tweaks and twangs. Wow this stuff is warming, but not bad, the resiny plum hits and forewarns of impending alcohol. The finish is moist initially but eventually the mouth dries. Nicely done.

Spicy aroma that also contains dark malt, some plum/fig and booze. Dark brown color with a tan head. Very pleasant to drink, well balanced and slightly sweet on the aftertaste. Just a tinge of booze heat but in this instance it serves to balance things out. A bit light on the palate. I would never have believed that this beer is 10.5% ABV. Quads are not usually my thing but Unibroue knocked it out of the park with this one.

UPDATED: SEP 20, 2017 bottle from monks cafe sveavägen. very short head. clear dark brown color. oxidized caramell malt aroma. nice caramell and fruit taste with a tuch of mint. low bitterness.

Backlog, bottle. Pours a dark brownish black with a medium beige head. Notes of fig, roasted malts, belgian fruit, cocoa, coffee roast, misc nuts, and random spice Medium to heavier body with a long, warming, close.

I wanted to finish my 150th with a great beer. I got this one as a trade with a friend, bullseye.

Smell of yeast, caramel, date, roasted malt. Come in black dark brown with thin cream crown. Taste of balanced sour yeast and sweet bitter malt, with some raisins. Close to Belgium quadruple beer but with less spice for commoners like us. Could experiment more on that. Overall it’s very good beer.

750mL. I’m not gonna bore you with the same details everyone else already posted on this. I will say that given expectations (and given that I generally like the brewer) this one was a bit of a letdown. So many better Quads. Who knows. Maybe it’s an old bottle. Oh and... fuck the Penguins.

Rami Rami is drinking a La Terrible by Unibroue at Powiśle
Suszone owoce, ciemne owoce, przyprawowosc (pieprz? Gozdziki?ciut kolendry?), melasa, karmel, nieco syropowe, raczej slodkawe w odbiorze [..

Bottle shared. Pours a clear, deep brown with a full 2 fingers of foam. Big nose of red currants, dates, plum and toffee. Booze is hidden really well with a complex bit of oaky wood and dark, late summer fruit. Smooth and finishes with more fruit and light booze. Very nice.

It’s almost inconceivable to me that La Terrible was not brewed inside the walls of an abbey. It’s not only completely convincing as a Belgian Abt, it’s one of the softest-drinking and most cohesive beers I’ve tried. Textbook brown-colored pour. Malty and fruity aromas with subtle spices. Taste profile consists of chocolate, prune, plum, raisin, molasses, and dessert wine. The booze is completely hidden away. My bottle had well over a year of age on it, and this brew seemed to be in prime condition.

Unibroue can do it up all right. La Terrible only continues that. A locally obtained 750 ml slice of delight. A wire and cork opening, be sure it is not aimed at anyone after the cage comes off. The good news, I did not lose any product. With a pour I call it inky darkness, you can put any color you want on it. A large, just short of white, finely bubbled head, very nice lacing. The scent is a walk through the orchard. It gives up red plum and maybe fig, red cough drops. The taste, oh my, a yeasty ripe fruit start leading to maltiness, spice and a slight bitterness finishing. The alcohol is looking around the corner at me. Well done.Trois Pistoles may be slightly better. I will gladly take either one.
