Tasting notes on 2/4/09.
After a hiatus away from Unibroue, number two in the sample pack that has got me converted. Not quite as good as LFDM, but tasty nonetheless.
12oz foiled bottle poured into Tremens goblet.
Bottle Graphics: 1/10. Hideous.
A: Chestnut body, very low carbonation and a coffee colored head.
S: A tint of yeast, some fruity flavors, chocolate. Not really the same dried fruit that comes out through the flavors.
T: Not too sweet, especially for the style. There is some bitterness present, some spices, and plenty of chocolate and fruit flavors. The dominant character is dried fruit, specifically the taste of dried turkish apricots- those juicy brown ones. Just too dry.
M: Pretty full body and super dry in the finish. Lightly carbonated with a cotton mouth after effect.
D: Not the most drinkable and not its greatest aspect. A little heavy sitting but still a pleasure to sip on. Not something I reach for a second bottle of if I had it but something that I will lean on more often moving forward.
Serving type: bottle
