A stunning beer in the same tradition of Chimay's Grand Reserve (blue cap), it offers everything that the Belgian classic has with just a darker tone and a more affordable price. BC-LDB currently stocks this at $7.95cdn per 750ml bottle -- and this one is honestly worth every penny.
Having tasted my fair share of Belgian styled brews over the past several years, Chimay's Grand Reserve was and will still remain my current all time favorite, but Unibroue's latest "Terrible" (an Abbey Style) dark brown ale pegged at 10.5% abv is an extremely strong contender that deserves a close look by fellow Belgian styled enthusiasts. New to market, or at least to my eyes, "Terrible" is the easy front runner on the Unibroue product schedule suprassing fellow label mates "Don de Dieu" and "La Maudite."
"Terrible" is another exceptional offering from Unibroue that is very drinkable and a great brew to relax with. It's a multi-purpose beer that works well as an afternoon sipping drink, a hearty addition to a meal, or as a replacement to coffee after a meal with friends or family.
