Strong Belgian type ale similar to a Port wine ! Is as dark as can be, mellow in taste with an aroma of ripe fruits. It can be compared to an old porto and is brewed from well roasted malt.

Good beer. A bit over carbonated for the style in my opinion. Nice dark fruit flavors but not as well balanced as I would have liked. A bit harsh on the palate...not too bad but just not as mellow as I was expecting. I think this beer would benefit greatly with age.

elnadeau (786) - Laguna Niguel, California, USA - OCT 1, 2003
Dark brown topped with coarse bubbles. Aroma is punget fruit, yeast and that familiar belgian spiced malt. Smoother than expected considering the appearance, sweet and fruity with a spicy undertone, finishes with a kick. Not my favorite blend of flavors but I can appreciate the craftsmanship.

Boutip (6130) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 30, 2003
Dark brown brew with a creamy dark white head. Tha alcohol was not too prevalent and the taste was sweet and fruity. Usual malt taste from Unibroue. Very nice brew overall.

aaronh (201) - McMurray, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 27, 2003
Deep chestnut brown with dark amber highlights topped by a creamy white head. This is an impressive looking beer, with an equally impressive bottle. The aroma is very complex, with yeast, fruits, and other scents. Reminds me of a ggod red wine. The taste is sweet, fruity and slightly overpowering. I did not find it to be as well balanced as some of the other Unibroue offerings. The mouthfeel is good, but the alcohol is a little too prevalent, creating too much astringency on the finish.

Brown in color with a fizzy off white head. Aroma is malt with friut and spice. Flavor is fruit, malt with a sweet finish. Quite a bit of carbonation.

UPDATED: DEC 28, 2003 Rich, fizzy, sweet (fruity/spice) and sour, nutty-malty/yeasty... Excellent aftertaste, etc... Very nice.

(bottled conditioned). Rich, malty aroma with pleasing earthy ripe fruit. Ruddy reddish brown color with lotsa carbonation. Big toasty malt leads the full-bodied charge with a earthy yeasty, rather than hoppy, finish. Nice lingering peppery alcohol. Very nice!

I am pleased to find a Unibroue I like. After a number of them I was beginning to despair. The rich claret like colour is great under the creamy head which dissipates rather quickly. The nose is very fruity with hints of raisins and sultanas, making it comparable to a tokay. The warmth in the mouth is immediate and it is a rich and the flavours of said fruit and aniseed become evident. A real sipping beer that is well suited to a rich pork dish or with some strong and bitey cheese.

UPDATED: JAN 2, 2004 First Belgian strong I ever tried. Dark brown not much of a head. raison, clove, fruity(in a earthy way) followed by an alcoholic kick.

UPDATED: MAY 18, 2007 This is a wonderful Belgian Strong Ale. It has a fairly high ABV of 9%, but it is hidden well in it complex taste.
