Aged a little over a year. Vintage 2009.

A: Pours copper with orange highlights. One finger head that dissipates slowly with good lacing. Good amount of carbonation left.

N: Apples, caramel, honey, cocoa and maybe cinnamon?

T: Pink lady apple, generous amount of Belgian funk, plum, sour apple, honey, brown sugar, toffee, cough syrup and citrus. Earthy and grassy finish with a bouquet of spices (coriander, black pepper).

M: Creamy and semi-chewy.

D: Although a very complex beer it's rather pungent and the spicy finish is overpowering.

750ml Bottle - Thanks to Pushkinwow for sharing

Appearance - Hazy amber colour with a small size fizzy off white coloured head. There is a below average amount of carbonation and there isn't much lacing. The head was gone in a few minutes.

Smell - Malts, yeast, spices, dates/plums

Taste & Mouth - There is a below average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts, dates/plums/raisins, yeast and a mix of spices. It ends with a sugary sweet aftertaste and the alcohol seems almost non existent.

Overall - Another fantastic beer that drinks more like a quad/barley wine than a BSPA. The aging has does wonders for it and I'd love to be able to drink beers like this all the time.

just picked this bottle up thinking it was the newest one but wrong. Love Unibroue

A-dark amber with a tall fluffy white head

S-lots of brown sugar, molasses, candi sugar and dried fruit. Like a belgian dubbel. some cherry notes as well.

T-a dryer of what I smelled above. very mellow and smooth. one of the best inthis style I have had. Unibroue is always my favorite!!

M-little on the syrupy side but still wonderfull.

Will be searching out another bottle of this one!!

Two year old bottle from store stock; unknown storage conditions. Poured into an Ommegang flute. Pours a clear red orange amber. Two finger medium active head and lacing. Nice fruit aroma of apples, plums, oranges, caramel malt, a hint of Belgian spices. Taste follows with nicely integrated light and dark fruit, caramel malt, light citrus and Belgian spicing. Medium, almost creamy body Unusually mellow and satisfying finish for Unibroue, which can have a bitter spicy finish. This is an excellent Belgian strong ale. I'd have categorized it as a dark strong ale, but whatever. Wish I had another! If it's like most Unibroues, this two year old bottle is at its prime and tastes like it.

750 ml bottle into snifter, bottled December 2009. Pours hazy reddish orange color with a nice 2 finger light khaki head with great retention that reduces to a lacing cap. Some spotty lacing on the glass. Aromas of big caramel, candi sugar, plum, raisin, apricot, molasses, biscuit, apple, and yeast spices. Some nice and interesting aromas. Taste of caramel, plum, apple, molasses, gold raisin, candi sugar, biscuit, and spicy yeast. Lingering notes of caramel, dark fruit, molasses, and spices on the finish for a bit. Medium-high carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a fairly creamy and slick mouthfeel. Very smooth drinking for 10%; with only a slight warming on the finish noticed. Good balance of flavors and spiciness. Overall this is a very nice Belgian strong pale. Interesting mix of flavors that come together very well.
