I bought this in one of those unibroue 750ml bottles.
A-This is a good looking brew with a nice dark amber/brown body and a cream white head. The head dissipated quickly but left a thin layer of lace on the top of the beer that stuck to the sides of the glass the whole way down.
S- Smells good, nothing to outrageous here. Lots of raisins, alcohol, and yeast.
T- chewy carmel, sherry, raisins, plenty of sweet notes with not a whole lot of hoppiness, but still balanced, its not oversweet. There are some dark malt flavors on the front and sides of the tongue too. This stuff is great, super complex, but not so subtle that its all homogeneous.
M- Some snappy carbonation, but not as much as some other Unibroue beers I've had. Silky and syrupy, but as it closes in on room temperature it thins out a bit.
D- I could drink this everyday now that the weather is cooling down. Unfortunately its high alcohol content makes that a little unrealistic ( for me at least.) I was truly impressed with this beer, its a staple in my fridge now.
My only complaint, and its not much of a complaint, is that by the end of the bottle the flavor (along with your senses) is dumbed down a good deal because of the high alcohol content.
What a fantastic beer, I can't wait to try the rest of Unibroue's line.
