341 ml bottle served cold into a pint glass. Purchased as part of the Unibroue taster's pack. Looking forward to this one. Awesome artwork on the label as with many of their other brews.

Appearance - Dark cola brown in color topped by a ridiculous multi finger head. Great retention and spidery lacing up and down the glass. Slightly hazy and sufficiently opaque to not be able to see the carbonation in the glass except for the edges.

Smell - Mmmm... plenty of cherry and caramel with just a pinch of dark chocolate through in. Plenty of the glorious Belgian yeastiness. Reminds me a lot of Chimay Blue on the nose, but also has some differences that can allow one to identify this as a Unibroue beer.

Taste - Delicious cherries, dipped in caramel then dipped in chocolate. Alcohol is nowhere to be found. Sweetness is present, but not overwhelming. The taste is delicious, but doesn't linger as long in the mouth as some other sin the style.

Mouthfeel - Carbonation felt surprisingly flat. It's ever so smooth, but can help thinking it could use some carbonation to liven it up. Some heat in the back of the mouth after a few sips, letting you know the potency of this beer. Realistically, a bit thinner than I thought it would be.

Overall - Still a world class beer, rich and full of flavor, however I had been expecting this to challenge La Fin Du Monde as my favorite Unibroue beer ever. Unfortunately, it can't quite live up to those expectations, however still something enjoyable that is perfect for a cold Sunday in November.
