4.73/5  rDev +11.8%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

The beer comes in a dark brown/black color with hues of reddish mahoghany in the light. A fluffy off white head.

The aroam has semi-dried raisins, slightly tart fig and plum, spices, caramel sweetness. Some phenolic nail polish.

The beer hits with caramel sweetness and light toffee in the front. It then moves onto white raisins, a bit of sweet dark raisins, dried plums, along with clove and pepper spiciness. There’s tons and tons of carbonation in the middle. There’s a hint of alcohol as well. The finish is of a gentle fruitiness and sweetness. The finish is dry, without much lingering flavor at all.

This is my favorite Unibroue brew. There’s complexity and everything works together. There’s nice fruit flavor, but not too much sweetness. Alcohol is extremely well hidden. The carbonation scrubs at the palate leaving a lighter body than what one may expect. This drinks easily, almost like a dark cherry soda. I would argue it stands up against classic Belgian brews and even better than Rochefort 8, comparable brew.
