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.
