Appearance - Pours a dark mahogany brown with an off-white 2 finger head; sub-par retention resulting in a sparse, semi-sticky lace that keeps to the sides.

Smell - Much like all Unibroue brews I've had, there's a definite heavy cream aroma, this one upfront, followed by notes of over-ripened banana

Taste - Sweet and creamy to start, with subtle hints of coconut and banana a touch of caramel on the back end. A sudden burst of dark, sugary fig. finishes very quickly.

Mouthfeel - Moderate to full body. Good carbonation. Really creamy mouthfeel, though I'm not quite sure it works as well with this beer as it does the others.

Overall - Good, but really not all that dark. Certainly not as dark as the advert would have one believe. A lot more on the sweet and creamy side. As with all Unibroue beers I've had, the smooth creaminess is the star attraction of the show, much more so than the flavor itself.

A: purplish brown body reminds me of beef broth as it pours into the tulip. a nice sudsy three finger sand colored head quickly settles to a spotty cap.

S: very fruity. picking up on dark cherries, raisins and grapes. maybe a little toffee and or chocolate in the back. hard to pick out anything over the fruits.

T: like eating fresh grapes and cherries at the same time. the alochol is hidden really well, but not completely, i can taste it as it goes down.

M: full and creamy with a nice level of carbonation. feels a little gritty, like the skins of the fruits are in there as well. and of course a warming feeling as it setles in my belly.

O: this is not one of my favorite styles, but very tasty none the less. might have to explore more offerings in this style.
