On tap at local pub. Dark with creamy head. Raisin and plum aroma. Sweet and smooth. Medium body. Little carbonation. Truly a unique beer. Had I drank it blindfolded, I could have been convinced that this was wine. Very pleasant.

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.

Its almost inconceivable to me that La Terrible was not brewed inside the walls of an abbey. Its not only completely convincing as a Belgian Abt, its one of the softest-drinking and most cohesive beers Ive 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.

P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, smooth finish. O- Pretty smooth, granted it had years of age on it and loaded with a variety of dark fruits I cant quite bit a finger on.

750 mL bottle shared by ebone1988 for the stupid book. The pour is a light black with a thick pillowy white head and a pretty soapy lace left behind. The aroma is a little metallic but pretty good overall. There is a Belgian malt and a sweet metallic finish to it. There is a spiciness about it and its just well balanced beyond the metal. The flavor is a little more complex. There is the metallic malts and a nice caramel and dark fruit with the spicy malt and some interesting sweetness on the back end. The mouth feel is light and a little watery with a brighter carbonation and a lingeringly fruity and caramel malts on the back end. Its decent overall, but definitely not my favorite thing.

OsuStu (260) - - FEB 5, 2017
Bomber. Pours an opaque coffee color with a dense bubbly and lasting khaki head. Malty aromas of nuts, prunes, cream, oats, and sweet dark bread. Very nice dark cherry, raisin, light chocolate, and clove flavor with a bit of leather. Medium body, medium carbonation. Silky creamy mouthfeel. Somewhat spicy finish. Alcohol is detectible but well hidden. Really, really nice beer. Opposite of the name and all that.

cattaneopapa (383) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 3, 2017
341ml bottle part of a taster pack. Pours an opaque deep brown colour with a small lasting head. Complex aroma with a dark fruit backbone with notes of figs, raisins, prunes, dark cherries, and licorice. Taste matches the aroma with some nutmeg and clove notes. Full-bodied with medium carbonation. It has a nice peppery finish from the booze, the alcohol is there, but its balanced against the flavours. Excellent quad.
