From Saveur Biere. In Grimbergen glass. Watching Los Soprano 6x04. Lighter and more drinkable than usual in the style. The dark fruits profile is there but lower than i’d like, although improves as it warms up Niko100 (2994) - Chicago, New York, USA - MAR 30, 2017
Dark brown color; Medium slightly creamy body; Aroma of sweet malt, yeast, dark fruit, & brown sugar; Flavor of sweet malt, yeast, dark fruit (notably figs & cherries), raisons, caramel, and spice; Nicely balanced; Overall, a bit sweet - but good.

I was really looking forward to a great taste experience when I opened this bottle. Right from the start I realized that I was to be disappointed. The aroma was more solvent than anything else. Flavor had some dark malt roastiness but was overwhelmed by a stressed yeast phenolic that really thinned out the palate of this BSA. I’ve had similar home brews with this fault. Unibroue, or rather Sapporo, needs to check their yeast bank or clean their equipment. ozzy70 (1283) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - MAR 14, 2017
750 ml bottle. Pored dark brown, foamy tan head. Aroma was fruity, raisin, plum, bread, yeast. Taste was mild sweet, raisin, plum, alcohol apparent. gallaghermurph (54) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 11, 2017
Pours a dark chestnut with a dark reddish tint. A khaki head dissipates fairly quickly. Aroma is not overpowering but is yeasty with raisin, jam overtones - more sweet than yeast. Palate is lighter than I expected, with a very slight stickiness. Bubbles are small but not such to make it seem creamy. Taste is dough and yeast frosted with dark fruits - almost like a dark sticky bun if that makes any sense. There are hints of dark grains in the back ground but dark fruits are prominent, with a very very slight bitterness in the after-taste. Its all very well balanced - almost artificially so. It’s kind of like someone was trying make the most middle of the fairway example of what a quadruple is, and once you understand this one, you can then venture into the others. I like this a lot, don’t get me wrong this is a tremendous beer, but for whatever reason don’t find it all that interesting.

Całkiem nudna Belgia, dużo kolendry, leciutkie owoce i karmel. Wodniste i nieco puste. Takie o. Mesjasz (1623) - Lodz, POLAND - FEB 19, 2017
Bottlesharing w Piwotece. W aromacie sporo ciemnych owoców i kolendry. Smak słodki, kolendra dominuje, trochę brakuje ciała. Ronritter (875) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - FEB 17, 2017
Bottle pours dark brown with an off-white head. Ripe dark fruity sweetness, hints of spice and clove in aroma. Some roasted malts and brown sugary notes later on. Sweet fruityness and plums in taste. bewyder (543) - FRANCE - FEB 16, 2017
Brune voilée, reflets cuivrés, douce, fruitée et légèrement acidulée, l’alcool n’est que très peu ressenti en bouche pour le style. Très agréable. Bouteille 34.1cl achetée à un stand de marché de Noël, Noisy-le-Grand, bue le 10/02/2017. meccahh69lol (349) - New Haven, Connecticut, USA - FEB 4, 2017
One of the very best Unibroues out there. Fruity aroma and a nice very dark brown appearance. Medium sweetness with no bitterness--with hints of plums and malt. It’s sort of like if you mixed Fin du Monde with a strong ale-- a bit darker and a bit more substantial, but not heavy and still certainly a Belgian at heart.
