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.

Dark brown/purple color, with a rather thin head. Aroma was nice, although difficult to pick out anything in particular besides alcohol hints. Rather heavy flavor with hints of raisens and maybe dates. The alcohol comes through stronger than expected. Very good overall flavor.

Cloudy, brown body with a huge, tan, rocky head. All yeast and bananas/clove in the nose. Lots of yeast and banana on the tongue with no hop presence. Alcohol is well hidden. This has to be one of the best Belgians made this side of the pond. Cant wait until I try some other Unibroue brews!

12/21/02: bottle. nice thick creamy head, with fair amount of lacing. yeasty smelling. hints of banana and high evidence of yeast. i know that this is a beer of high quality, but for some reason i just don’t get it with belgians.

Smell was hard to get.... Nice brown foamy head... You would think by looking at it that it would be a hard to drink beer... NOT at all. I luv the sweetnessss of these unibroue beers.

Dark cloudy brown in color, nice light-brown head. Moderate sweet malt aroma. Very full bodied, light carbonation. Bitter, dry, and slightly alcoholic. Well worth the money. Definitely one of Canadas best.

A great beer. Deep red color with full off-white head. Strong citrus and clove nose. The flavor matched. Tasted like a (very) alcoholic orange spice tea. Finished sweet and smooth.

[12/15/02] In a few short months, my palate has gained a bit more maturity, and I can say with confidence that this is one of the better belgian strongs on the market, and it is so ubiquitous, that accessibility makes it an even better beer. This is one of the best unibroue has to offer, which is saying a lot, considering they make such great beer. [9/16/02]Very large head that disipates quickly. Fruity aroma that gives just a hint of the sweet, smooth fruit flavor of this ale. Very smooth considering its alcohol content.
