look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Served from the bottle into a tulip glass

A- Poured a dark mahogany color with tons of visible streaming carbonation, huge fluffy off-white ice cream like head with chunky lace.

S- Big belgian yeast and bubblegum aroma, clove, raisin, and cinnamon. Prominent yeast and spice notes in the nose

T- Big clove, belgian yeast, and bubblegum flavors at the forefront. Cinnamon, appleskin, and a rich maltiness.

M- Very high carbonation, nice alcohol warming on the finish, medium body, and a little sticky. Way too easy to drink.

O- This is an outstanding belgian strong dark ale and makes me wonder why I have not revisited Unibroue aside from La Fin Du Monde in such a long time.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: Pours a 1/2 inch off white head that quickly falls to very low lacing. Beer has the colour of prune juice (dark brown with violet hues)

S: Cloves, cinnamon, spicy, raisins. A bit of a "Christmas" scent.

T: Raisins, clovy esters, caramel malt backbone with balanced bitterness. Chocolate on the finish.

M: High carbonation that has a sharpness that cleans the palate. Good dry finish with residual sweetness yet still balanced with bitterness.

O: A great beer all and all. Not too over the top on flavours yet they are all very present and balanced.

Had in a trois pistols tulip at novare red

The beer is dark, brown In the light but otherwise black. The head is surprisingly light a offense which covers the top of the beer while lacing hangs to the side.

The nose is clearly Belgian, yeast, clove and other spices. The nose is much more aromatic as it warms.

The taste starts almost fruity which lingers and a big yeast clove and spice enter and dry the mouth. Not my favorite style but true and as good as any from Belgium.

Poured from a bomber to a Tulip

A- Deep, dark, hazy copper, 1/2" off white head that quickly fades to lacing

S- Funky, sour cranberries, grapes, and raisins. Apple cider, red wine, banana, sour, alcohol

T- Very sweet. Plums, raisins, grapes, bananas, red wine, sour, candi sugar, medicine, caramel malts

M- Oily, creamy body, crisp carbonation

O- A malty red wine. That's the easiest way to describe this. It's packed with dark fruits, balanced by creamy caramel malts. For 9% abv, the alcohol is very tame and only makes a slight appearance at the end. I'm slowly starting to realize how much i like this style. This is a great example.
