Bottle into glass. Malty, very slightly smokey aroma. Pours a cloudy amber with white head. Taste is light sour. Medium bodied. Not bad for a red beer.

adamnowek (2215) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 17, 2016
Deep amber with a generous white head. Aroma is malt and spice. Taste is cinnamon, spice, and a light hint of smoke (though not nearly as much as one would expect out of a smoked ale).

Bottle. This has all the spicy yeast youd expect from a Unibroue, with a little bit of smoke. Its good if thats your thing.

Postively ancient bottle lurking in the back of my cellar for at least 8 years. Hazy amber beer, good cream colour head. Palate is airy and crisp. Light malts, a little oxidised caramel but not that much. Touch of malt cream. Dried fruits and a little orange peel. Tangy orange finish. Its survived well but it has been pretty cool and dark throughout its long life. No smoke though ...

MattChiasson (70) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 15, 2016
Out of the bottle, poured a deep copper, cloudy, with a persistent white head. On the nose I am getting yeasty, wheat malt notes, some tart lemon and coriander. Perhaps a bit of caramel but not picking up a lot of smoke in the aroma. On the palate, smoked notes come through a bit more - some caramel, bacon, clove and banana reminiscent of a dunkelweizen. Refreshing but with a slight off-dry finish. Enjoyed it!

rubyroo (146) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 9, 2016
Pours an orangey brown. With a finger of white foam. Smells like yeast, smoke and Carmel. Taste is smoke, bacon, Carmel, toast, pepper, yeast. Palate is medium-thin with above average carbonation. Overall- O.K. I might be somewhat biased because I dont enjoy smoked malts very much.

Aroma is yeasty, bready, light banana; pour is cloudy brown with fizzy head. Has both the look and aroma of a dunkel. Flavor is wheat, yeast, banana - smoke is subtle but becomes more noticeable as the beer warms. Has a rather strong metallic note in the finish that kind of kills it for me. Has many qualities of a good dunkel, but that poor finish makes this a weaker offering from Unibroue.

This corked and caged bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a large sized head of foamy finely sized off-white colored bubbles that were very long lasting and left behind a strongly carbonated transparent golden brown colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The mild aroma was spicy and musty. The sharp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a mellow spicy aftertaste. The sharp flavor contained notes of mild ale mild spice crisp breads hops and malt. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.
