look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Appearence: Pours a nice, very dark brown with reddish hues. On top sits a nice, foamy, beige head.
Smell: Chocolaty and sharp, with nice fruit/vinous aromas.
Taste and Mouthfeel: Very clean and very dry. Call me crazy, but this is a Schwarzbier. It has a strong lager crispness, and goes down like one as well. The flavors are of strong, roasted malts and chocolate, with not much complexity, and a very "dusty" (chalky?) finish.
Drinkbility and Overall: Not a bad brew, but far from near Unibrou's best offering. The past 2 new Unibroue's I've had lately have been off. This one and the 15. Still worth a try, and not as unnappealing as you may have heard.

Purchased at the LCBO for around $7.00 for a 750ml bottle. Less than 6mths old. Want to try one fresh and others later....
A- Excellent! Very dark. Opened hard with a TON of brown head.... 3" in a chalice. Head dissipates over 3 to 4mins to a nice film.
S- Excellent hops and malt. Caramel hints. coriander so I know this is a blend with Blanch De Chambly.
T- Yup! Wheat dark ale 100%. Very nice blend of recipes to come up with a winner. All around great beer. Airy and light despite the colour. Touch metallic though.
M- Very good. Very carbonated. Needs a bit of time to blend the flavors of dark ale and wheat beer.
O- Excellent! Will try again next year to see how it aged.
This very young, very carbonated beer surprisingly goes well with... Sushi!!!
For some reason this one went very, very well with sushi. Even with the light fish flavor it still does not overpower.
Thx for reading
