4.44/5  rDev +5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance 4.0: Deep, dark, brownish black. Almost completely black. Opaque and mysterious. Head was average: 1/4" and quickly dissipated.

Smell 4.0: Bouquet is subdued but very nice. Raisins, toasted grains, Belgian yeast and some pleasant caramel notes.

Taste 4.75: Front is somewhat sweet, but this fades quickly into a dry and pleasing middle. "Dry " is right: I detect lots of notes of dried and sweet fruits such as figs and raisins at this level. Finish is where slight hints of toasted grains and a very light hoppiness seep through. Aftertaste is short, smooth and entirely at the top of the palate, featuring a clean and refreshing light barley taste. No hint of the 9% ABV. Absolutely no indication of it at all.

Mouthfeel 4.0: Near-perfect complement to the beer. Just the right amount of carbonation.

Overall 4.5: Certainly the best Unibroue I have tasted so far. Refreshing, complex, smooth and dry. Flavor notes are nuanced and balanced rather than IN YOUR FACE. I have had many Belgian "Strong Dark Ales" and this is the best so far. Hint: do not drink it at fridge temp. Let it sit out for an hour at room temperature and then drink it. So many more of the dried fruit flavors come out when you do this; at least this is my experience. Recommended.
