BEST BEFORE 04-04-05 (sampled over 2 months past the date)
Appearance slightly cloudy, mostly brown/bit red body; initial inch-thick, off-white head crackles away quickly; lace isnt present; age seems to have taken a negative effect here for head and lace seem to be more impressive in younger bottles reviewed by others
Smell medicinal notes run lower than the prevalent plum; big on malts
Taste yeast emerges and some spice kicks in; dark fruit holds strong and a bit of a caramely tone arrives; pleasant medicinal and slight alcoholic qualities come through in the aftertaste
Mouthfeel & Drinkability brew comes alive; crisp, micronized bubbles coat the tongue and almost make the entire distance of the sip but they peel back just enough at the finish line to aid in drinkability; for such a big Belgian, this aged beast rolled smoothly
Very enjoyable. Beyond the appearance, its all-around tremendous. Its as 'terrible' as La Terrible as far as Unibroue is concerned.
