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.

UPDATED: DEC 13, 2005 Short lasting, thick head covered an amazing, deep brown (like dark cider) ale. When held to light beer had many floaties and only let light in at the edges. Nose of spice, yeast, and apple cider. The taste is very grape and wine like. Complex beer. The finish is very yeasty and bread like, a big change from the first sip. Alcohol is decently hidden, but it still warms the mouth. One 12oz can hit ya. Re-Rate 12-13-05 My ratings on this beer changed very little. The beer looks perfect, and is very complex.. smooth but still slightly acidic. Can be a little harsh sometimes, esp in the linger, still excellent.

Ulysse (459) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 31, 2016
Weak Aroma. Tastes like its sister the noire de Chambly but with less water and a beer can taste.
