341ml bottle into snifter. bottled on january 22, 2013. enjoyed on august 7, 2014

a: a murky, deep chestnut colour. two fingers of head, loaded with fine bubbles, in a tan hue

s: raisin, spicy belgian yeast (very unibroue-esque), chocolate, black cherries, slight alcohol

t: a really nice dark fruit presence up front, not a flavour explosion but rather a very delicate melange. chocolate-and-alcohol-covered raisins and cherries, then prunes, apples, plums, and dates. spices and yeast underneath all of that. hints of ripe bananas. a bit of molasses towards the back end, then malt and spicy yeast close things out, with an accompanying mild bitterness. the flavours really linger in your mouth. improves drastically as it warms up -- bigger fruit presence, a bit more chocolate, and becomes somewhat brandy-like. delicious

m: creamy medium-to-full mouthfeel, with mild-to-medium carbonation. really fits the style

o: my favourite from unibroue, an absolute treat. this 4-pack is nearly a year and 8 months old, so i'd like to re-review this when it's fresh. do yourself a favour and grab some of this beer because it's incredible

12 oz bottle poured into sensory glass. Pours a dark brown with purplish red undertones. A medium tan head appears which subsides after a couple of minutes to a thin veil, sparse lacing.

Smell is pungent dark fruits up front - plums, cherries and raisins, mainly. The alcohol is also apparent, with some chocolate and a bit of an herbal quality.

Taste is exactly what you expect from the aroma. Lots of sweet, dark fruits up front, with a touch of chocolate and alcohol spiciness. Under that initial blast, you can taste some hops, which help to balance the sweetness of the beer and it does a good job. Reminded of dark chocolate on top of tart, dark cherries. This ends up being dry on the finish, despite the sweet smell and initial flavors. Very easy drinking for a strong dark. Mouthfeel is smooth and bubbly.

Overall, an excellent strong dark Belgian ale. Way too easy going down at 9%.
