One of my go too beers from the Beer Store, and enjoy being able to get six packs of Trois Pistoles, Maudite and Fin Du Monde from my Beer Store! Pours dark orange brown color, big thick clingy head, sweet fruity. Bready aroma, full bodied, alcohol hidden very well. Smooth and velvety and overall this is a great Belgian strong ale, very drinkable. Awesome brew and a great Canadian product.

Wow, this is interesting. Had this one to celebrate new years seeing as how i didn't have champagne i figured a craft beer from a pressured bottle would be better anyway. Pours a dark mahogany with a bit of cloud. Looks very fizzy. Thin head. Smells strongly of citrus and another fruit, possibly cherry. The mouthfeel is the kicker. Very carbonated but delicate on the pallet. Perfect mouthfeel for the style. The taste is much like grapefruit and cherry with a slight anise/licorice finish. Very complex beer with a great mouthfeel. I will definitely drink this one again. Happy New Year indeed!

Best by 10-24-2014 bottle poured into a Dogfish Head goblet.

A: Deep mahogany, slightly opaque. Poured with little head which quickly dissipates into a light mahogany colored ring. Not much carbonation visible.

S: Not a very strong smelling beer. Getting a very faint ripe grape smell.

T: Very strong fig presence. The 9% ABV is very well hidden. A fairly sweet tasting beer.

M: Lots of carbonation in the mouth. Medium body.

Overall, a pretty good Belgian dark ale. A good offering from Unibroue, but not my favorite.
