A: A unique murky bronze color, with a rough pour I get a foamy, light tan head that recedes to leave a paper-thin layer of residue. No carbonation to be seen.
S: A mix of malt and some warm spices. Occasional sniffs get an unfortunate metallic aroma, but Unibroue once again creates an intriguing and delicious spice potpourri that can overcome any flaws.
T: The spices take the forefront; I’m getting warm stuff like cinnamon, clove, ginger, even a bit of heated spice, such as pepper. Like a great cigar without the harshness of the smoke. Even displays a caramel flavor on my last sip. A flaw, however, is present again; the middle and beginning of the finish has a decidedly unpleasant chalky biscuit flavor, and something almost medicinal. I know some people will still enjoy this flavor, but I’m not one of them.
M: Velvety, with some carbonation bite on the back of my tongue.
O: A beer with great depth and complexity, and really an ingenious mixture of components for all the senses, unfortunately not all of its aspects suit me well. I can accept what I perceive as drawbacks to be balancing components, but I think I might prefer a more straightforwardly spiced beer. Some will love it, all should respect it. I do enjoy it very much, but for the money I will probably be going with other Unibroue options.
