look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
A - Pours dark brown with a meek tan head that fades almost instantly. No lacing. Not much to look at - it just kinda sits there. No visual excitement at all...
S - Strong aromas of dark fruit (cherry and fig) and alcohol. Mild aromas of the yeast.
T - Fantastic - my first sip was a bit too cold, but after warming up a bit this really comes into its own, and I agree that it offers a port-like taste in some ways. I could almost detect hints of grape along with the more prominent dark fruit of figs and plums. Good amount of peppery spice and yeasty. Strong roasted malts of course, and some caramel sweetness also. Lots of alcohol - this one does not hide it.
M - Very smooth with mild carbonation. Finishes a bit sticky on the tongue. Definitely some alcohol warmth in the throat.
D - One of Unibroue's better tasting offerings, I found it quite enjoyable and will come back to this as a great after dinner sipper, or perhaps paired with some figs and cheese. Despite the noticeable alcohol it was easy to finish off.
