Wonderful lightly hazed copper body, nice and copious brew that sticks on the glass until the end. Its complex malted and spicy flavour makes it a good everyday smoked beer, although it's not the best product from Unibroue. fiulijn (21507) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 13, 2004
Golden color, stormy perlage, big head. Malty and spicy aroma; carbonic gas. In the front, it's very simple, but it reveals an original character later: very light smokey, light maltiness, very light liquorice. Quite dry; it has a low profile yeast as often for Unibroue. brownaler (742) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - FEB 4, 2004
Has the sweet aroma that all Unibroue beers have. Soft body. Swwet flavor with a little bit of smokiness. Zach Diesel (905) - Sisters, Oregon, USA - JAN 28, 2004
citrus aroma, cloudy orange with tiny sediment and a nice tightly packed head, creamy at first then spritzy hints of orange and finally a peaty finish jeffc666 (1984) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - JAN 26, 2004
Clear amber body topped by a quickly vanishing foamy white head. The head was never very pleasing even after a vigorous pour. The aroma is sweet and smoky with a definite Whisky quality. Even at 5.5% ABV I get a bit of alcohol, maybe it is just that I am expecting alcohol when I smell Whisky? The flavor is lightly sweet with some smokiness, but not nearly as much as I was expecting. There are also some fruity flavors floating about. The body is medium and has a disappointing watery finish. The aftertaste is quite unique and blends the smoked-peaty qualities of a fine single-malt with a distinct beer flavor. Props for an interesting brew, even if fails to 100% succeed on all levels.

Amber copper red. Sudsy fluff head quickly dissipating. Pretty still. Some wood and smoke in the nose. Yeast and malt with some decent alcohol tones, even though it's only 5.5%. Citrus with a little bit of burt sugar/caramel. This is an under-rated beer. It does grow on you a bit. beerhugger (572) - Oshawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 16, 2004
Yeasty and sweet and spicy all at once. I loved the hazy orange-brown colour with its nice thick white head - although the head didn't last long. Very smooth and malty but a little thinner than expected. Overall another good Unibroue offering though. nickchalk (229) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 13, 2004
Light amber, small off-white head. Not much of an aroma, though the smokiness does come through a bit. Flavour is sweet, bitter finish. Full-bodied, pleasantly high carbonated. A lot like other Unibroue beers, but not as good. Average. Bottle. ChazyRPh (583) - Chazy, New York, USA - JAN 8, 2004
Clear amber pour (Draft at McLean's Pub) with minimal head. Slight citrusy aroma with definate yeast. Impeccably smooth and well balanced. I taste a hint of clove along with a yeasty flavor that is oh sooo good. My favorite from the Unibroue folks. thehoff (598) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JAN 1, 2004
Brown, amber beer. Smells slightly sweet, a little bitter. Citrus? Very odd taste here. I really cannot explain it. Good but not my favorite Unibroue beer. Thanks to my sister for getting me a sixer for Christmas. I can't even find this one around here.
