New Jersey

4.18/5  rDev -0.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Package: 750ml corked bottle, labeled 8% ABV, Best Before 04-22-05. Another beautiful label with real appeal.

Cost: $5.99

Presentation: tulip glass at 50º, tasted the night after a bottle of La Fin du Monde.

Appearance: Nice mahogany brown, with burgundy highlights. Streamers of fine bubbles cutting through a cloudy body. Head is extremely dense, although lighter and less subtantial than La Fin du Monde. Settles to a self-replenishing ½ to ¾ of an inch.

Smell: Banana, clove, apple, pear, and raisins. Also a faint hint of rum!

Taste: A panoply of complex fruitiness: raisins, banana, and a bit of crisp, green apple. A richer, softer flavor profile than the crisper LFdM. The middle and finish weren’t quite as substantial as I had hoped, which I have experienced lately in some of the Unibroue beers. These were younger examples, tasted off-the-shelf for comparison purposes.

Mouthfeel: A softer, less assertive mouthfeel than the LFdM. Not as substantive as some other strong dark ales.

Drinkability: A very nice beer that is not as challenging as some of the other Unibroue offerings. Smooth and likable.

Another good offering from Unibroue. My one quibble is that I think they split hairs in offering so many expressions on a similar theme. An excellent beer to pour with cheeses (fondue!), smoked fish, olives, and especially a plate of poutine!

Backwash: I think that I prefer the Trois Pistoles from Unibroue, as well as the Chimay Grande Reserve, Westvleteren 12 (perhaps an unfair comparison), and the Abbaye des Rocs. Definitely a very good beer, but not the best of its type. Je me serai condamner!
