COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Head is excellent: thick, off-white, and enticing. The aroma is complex. The alcohol is very present and matched with a sweet malt and ripe fruit nose. The taste is complex and satisfying at first but does not resolve very well. The finish I find lacking. Also surprising is the thin mouthfeel considering the gravity of the brew. Overall, a fine belgian style dark but not on my list of favorites.

Bottle at Cest What, Toronto, 11th July 17. Pours black and bubbly. Aroma is dark fruit, prune, light liquorice. Taste is dark fruit, raisin, liquor, caramel, sweet and heavy. Not bad, but not as good the Belgian stuff.

Many thanks for this beer to CH-303. Piwo ma mala piane pelna pecherzykow błyskawicznie opada i spływa cala po szkle bez sladu. Barwa ciemna geste dość choć ogolnie bez osadu. Zapach sliwka, kompot z suszu. Smak slodki, lekko wodniste, metaliczny posmak a do tego cos co mnie denerwowalo. Zbytnie nagazowanie, niemal jak Pepsi. Sadzilem ze to będzie porządny quadrupel a otrzymałem w smaku pepsi tyle ze ze spora dawka alkoholu.

This is a really good beer that borders on being great. The yeast and dark fruit noted are super pleasant, but it just doesn’t quite seal a five from me. It’s almost there and it’s good, but it’s not quite there.

Dark brown pour. Aromas of raisin and plum same in the taste but with some yeast notes as well. Boozy finish. Two thumbs up

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

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.
