a - looks amazing, dark with a beutiful head. in the trois pistoles glass....which i'm so stoked they're carrying unibroue glassware at bevmo here.

s - amazing, malty and fruity some breadyness to it as well. once when i was having this and was already a bit loaded, my friend and i both agreed it smelled a lot like fruity pebbles or fruit loops. HA!

t - good lord this is just amazing, dark fruits, a bit of chocolate a bit of spicyness from the alcohol that doesn't come through as "hey that's alcohol".

m - dry and chewy, ah hell, i giggle from how good it tastes to think about the mouthfeel too much.

d - i could drink these all night any night, in spite of the high alcohol, i would give this 5's across the board but because it is rich and high in ABV i thought i'd be fair and give it a 4....

notes - fast becoming probably my favorite beer, a staple for me. hooray for unibroue

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.
