Best by 5/5/12, not sure how old that makes this bottle.
A - Pours reddish brown with one finger of tan head. Head fades to a collar without leaving much lacing behind.
S - Quite spicy in the nose, with coriander and pepper on top of a nice mix of caramel and cherries.
T - Similarly spicy initially, then with a big cherry taste with a lot of caramel as well. Also get a bit of raisin andand toasted malt. Alcohol is well hidden. Vey tasty. Full flavored without being heavy.
M - Medium mouthfeel with a spicy dryness.
O - This is pretty easy drinking for a BSDA. Even on a hot night, doesn't feel heavy. Another nice one from Unibrue.

12 Oz bottle poured into a snifter
A- The pour was a light brown/ tan but the actual product in a glass is a murky dark brown/black that you definitely cant see through. Nice alcohol legs.
S- A big spiciness and Belgian yeast. A lot of wheat and a slight fruity zest. A dark malt profile showcasing a strong dark fruit character.
T- A smooth caramel feel to it but the flavor is a ton of dark fruits. This beer carries a heavy wheat influence and that comes with a spicy zesty fruit flavor. Super complex and a lot of bold character to this one. Tastes close to a quad. This beer has a heavy dark fruit flavor like figs and Raisins and prunes and it comes with a burnt sugar taste and feel. Its complemented perfectly by the light and zesty wheat flavor. Superb.
M- This is a big beer but not that hard to drink. It has high carbonation and a moderate aftertaste, its spicy and slightly bitter and that helps keep the palate fresh and ready for more.
O- This is my fourth beer from Unibroue and while they have all been great, this one is the best. Its one of the best strong dark's I have ever had if not THE best.
