Best Before 03-04-13 stamped on label
Loud pop from the cork easy removal.
Very foamy pour dissipates very quickly.
Plum. lots of plum. Nothing else. Some residual effervescence.
Very disappointing.
Mouthfeel & aftertaste nothing to write home about.
What am I missing? This is a highly rated beer and I find nothing of value to warrant a redo.
Not a drainpour though. It would have to be pretty awful to do that.

4.03/5  rDev -4.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

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.
