4.5/5  rDev +6.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a steep wine glass to approximate a chalice.

Appearance: Pours an intriguing deep, dark brown that blocks most any light that tries to pass through it. The brew produces a fluffy, manilla colored head that simply will not dissipate. Strong lacing is left behind on the sides. On the bottom of the glass, strong upward currents of carbonation rise to the surface. This beer makes a strong visual impression.

Smell: Fruit is the dominant characteristic, with notes of dark fruits being at the forefront. The smell is sweet and supple, yet strong and bold. The scent also has a flowery and yeasty character, which blends well with the fruit. A complex smell, which builds anticipation for the tasting to follow.

Taste: The initial flavor is a mellow blend of apple and raisins, which saturates my palette. This is mixed with a hopped bitterness, which balances out the sweetness of the fruit taste. The finish of the brew contains some alcoholic notes, which warm my chest. A pleasant aftertaste remains, reminding you of the experience. Unibroue once again has a winner here.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, with just the right amount of carbonation. This drink is silky smooth, and just glides around the mouth.

Drinkability: This is a great tasting brew which, despite its richness, goes down quite easily. I could sip on this for an entire evening. However, one must beware of the ABV, as it is high and could get you in trouble if you have too much.

Unibroue has not let me down yet, and consistently makes high quality Belgians. Highly recommended.

The main thing that ticks me off about this beer is if it gets shaken in the very slightest way in a bottle it'll foam like a volcano when you open it...wasting most of the beer. It foams like crazy too! A slight shaking in any manner will make it seem like you opened a bottle of beer you JUST vigorously shaked like crazy! And it's not cheap so seeing it fuzz like crazy after a simple car ride and losing half a bottle is annoying!
