Well, if by the title of "Terrible" Unibroue is trying to say "Rocks The Casbah!", then I understand what they are getting at here. This, dear diary, is one of those exemplar beers that should not go unnoticed, should not be passed by if you are so lucky enough to pass it on a shelf in your neck of the woods, should be both horded and consumed, loved and cherished.

Came in a brown 750 ml caged and corked bottle, the logo is in stamped silver (probably a new batch from the gold label bottles from last year). Classy, elegant, minimalist. Pours out a silky reddish-tinged black. Big off-white head. Nose contains intense raisin and fig characteristics, purple grapes and some chicory. Nearly like wine. Flavour is a medley of sweet and spice, dried fruit and brandy. It's terribly good. It's terribly drinkable. Thick, velvety mouthfeel, yet goes with ease across the pallet and down the throat. No boozy bite at all for a 10.5% abv.

I give it top marks, this is very impressive, well beyond my expectations. The aweful truth is that La Terrible is f-ing fantastique.
