My second Unibroue. Did not know the reputation when i bought those bottles.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into my snifter.

Brown color while pouring and in the light. Deep mahogany to slightly dark brown in the glass. A hell lot of bubbles. One finger thick off white colored head, that persists really well, not as thick but still. Some lacing is left on the sides while drinking.

Smell: A lot like a mix of Belgian and doppelbock. Belgian yeast smells are the first thing that enter nose along with the clove smell. Some dry nuts, roasted malts and slight sweetness. Alcohol is missing and at 9% it is an excellent thing.

Taste: Very Belgian, yeast like. Some minor cloves, less than as suggested by nose. Some sweet malts. No bitterness. Nothing really specific. Very fruity taste inside the mouth. Semi dry finish.

Mouth feel: Easy on palate, very soft yet has some astringency related to high carbonation. An easy drinking beer otherwise.

Overall, a good brew, as usual. One thing that is very well hidden is its alcohol strength. At 9.0% it never feels like one. Neither in taste, nor in nose. Kudos here.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Bottle dated: Best by 01/17/16

Pours cloudy dark brown with a one inch khaki head that fades away to a thick ring and leaves strands of lace.

The smell begins with Autumn-like spices up front followed by plum and dark cherry with a hint of toffee on the finish.

The taste is of dark fruit (plum, cherry and raisin) followed by molasses and dark malt with a hint of clove on the back end.

The texture is medium bodied with medium carbonation.

Dark fruit and spices dominate the flavor. This is a solid Belgian dark.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a Chimay goblet, it came out a deep slightly cloudy ruddy brown. A small amount of light gets through towards the bottom. A nice thick off-white head settles in at about half a finger and lasts well throughout the beer. The aroma is rich with spices, alcohol esters, and dark fruit sweetness. The taste is a little less explosive, but mirrors the aroma closely, spice and fruit in the forefront and a little bit of alcohol in the background. It wasn't as heavy as I expected given its big aroma and taste, but it certainly isn't lacking. This is a delicious Belgian-style dark ale.
