More uneathed tasting notes from 2009. This was a 2 year old bottle, dated 10/24/07. Drank on 9/13/09 in Ottawa with Phil.

Light blood red, very clear.

Dark sweet fruit on nose, sweet and malty.

Typical trois taste [wish i would have described it more, i don't drink this beer often] but mellower, more fruit, slight alcohol warmth.

Great mouth feel, carbonation has stood the test of time.

Tremendous beer.

750 ml bottle picked up at Giant Eagle the day after Thanksgiving. Poured into a cervoise...

A - Pours a nice dark brown color that reminds me of the shade of chocolate. Nice, finger thick, light tan head forms and dissipates quickly leaving a cap of the same color.

S - Dark malts and Belgian yeast come first along with some dark fruits. Plums, raisins, and prunes come out as the fruits. Smells sweet with some caramel coming out as well.

T - Sweet flavors of dark malts and dark fruits with Belgian yeast. Raisins, prunes and some plum mixed with some slight caramel flavors. Some nice flavors here and fnishes slightly like a port would.

M - Creamy feel on the tongue with a medium body. Moderate carbonation as well.

O - Only my second Unibroue beer and although I liked this less than La Fin du Monde, I still enjoyed sipping on it while sitting around with family. I might revisit this one again sometime.

A: poured into a Unibroue tulip. Dark red, almost black.. held against the light I see some bright red, pink bottom, hazy brown right under the head. the head started at one finger but noisily dissipated to a thin layer, bright creamy white...looks like a root beer.... after a while the head completely disappears.

S: Smells like alcohol, grass, black cherries. Can't really think of anything else, but it smells nice.

T: Wow! Heavy malts, black & maraschino cherries and a little chocolate... but not like the smell. it's much more intense.. a slight orange essence w the alcohol. aftertaste really brings out the chocolate tones while keeping the cherry flavors in tact. The aftertaste is crisp but the initial blast of flavor steals the show. This brew really makes you want to take another sip right away.

MF: Perfect carbonation level, it seems to balance the flavors. It's easy on the tongue but quite sharp on the back of the throat.

O: another great Ale from Unibroue. I could easily stick with Unibroue Ales if I had to choose a session beer. They're high in alcohol but extremely drinkable. This is a beautiful dark ale, unique flavor and easy to find in NYC. Definitely an 'A' in my book.
