4.03/5  rDev -1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

a - bright, opaque caramel

s - fruity with a hint of its ABV peeking through. Warm and inviting.

t - A hit of cider up front then malts with tangy swallow. Almost no hops. Some mouth numbing with a warming sensation. An almost smoky finish.

m - medium body. Bubbly like a champagne but oddly not annoyingly so.

d - this bomber is going down nicely. Normally I would knock a beer for mediocre ABV masking but this Unibroue is decent and we're talking 10% ABV. I get a sure hit of alcohol but it doesn't strike in that harsh vodka feeling that accompanies other beers. Good finish on a good sipper.

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!!

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

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.
