I am really starting to like what Unibroue has to offer. 750mL poured into a Unibroue chalice. A: Pours a dark brown color with a 1 finger tan head. Head quickly fades to a ring, a little swirl of the glass excites the brew causing some nice lacing. N: Aroma is of bread malts, plum, red grape and pears. P: The aroma accentuates the taste giving you a mildly carbonated dark fruit and malty smooth mouthful. Followed by a slight and pleasant alcohol after taste. O: I really enjoyed this brew. The flavors coming through make this almost like a dessert brew. It's not too filling so it's easy to drink. A very enjoyable Belgian style Dark Ale.

From 2009. It certainly aged well! Lots of cola flavors. Not much carbonation left, but not flat either. You wouldn't think a 5 year old beer could be this awesome.

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 750 ml bottle into a tulip glass. The label lists the abv at 9% and there a brief description on the back label.

Appearance: The body has a dark brownish color with some lighter brownish amber highlights. It looks like it has a slight haze and it has lots of fine carbonation running up the sides of the glass. From the pour I got an inch of light tan foam. This foam fades slowly to ring of foam at the edge of the glass. A quick swirl excites the foam. Lacing is minimal.

Smell: It’s aroma is very inviting and full of deep fruity and yeasty notes. I gets notes of red grapes, raisins, plums and over ripe pears. These notes are surrounded by a pleasant sweet bready maltiness with just the very slightest hint of the 9% abv.

Taste / Palate: Like the aroma it’s flavor follows in its footsteps. The has a good full body with loads of malty, yeasty and dark fruitiness. I also get nice mild notes of vanilla extract along with some alcohol which adds another nice layer of complexity. Mouth feel is smooth and full with lots of soft carbonation.
