Poured into a Konings Hoeven goblet..
A : Murky reddish brown with a finger tall fuzzy tan head that settles quickly to a light froth top.
S : A mix of plum, orange peel, breadiness, hints of spice and alcohol esters. A quite potent and complex smell, I found myself continuing sniffing it throughout as it warmed.
T : A buttery flavor opens this one, with notes of plum found in the nose. A surprising level of bitter hop comes in the center to balance bready malt, here's where the orange peel and spice start to appear as well. The finish is more of the spice, and a smooth malt.
M : Very smooth and buttery, and just enough carbonation to give this one a tingly swallow.
D : Unibroue does right on this one, providing a stand-out Belgian Strong Dark that has all the expected qualities and yet remains original by throwing flavors out that aren't normally expected. The balance in this one is what most surprised me, not overly sweet or carbonated, and deliciously smooth.
