Chilled 750ml bottle poured into a unbroue branded chalice.
Body is very dark with only a very fleeting glimpse of a cola he when held to the light. Generated a dark tan head of about 2 fingers which fell away nicely with patchy lace and finally a generous thin layer remained.
Dried dark fruits dominate the nose along with a mild yeasty funk and warm dough. Aromatic notes grow as the beer warms up towards room temperature.
The taste profile is well characterized by the yeast and it appears as though the malt and dark fruit notes are trying to bust through across the palate however something seems a little lost in translation and instead the taste is very confusing. At first this is a little offensive and perhaps a little metallic or soapy.
Weighting is medium to heavy and carbonation is light.
This beer is bit of an anomaly. The appearance and aroma have the goods, although the aroma is slightly thin, however the taste spectrum is extremely confusing.
I have had Unibroue Terrible on other occasions and this is the first time I have encountered this metallic soapy taste, so perhaps there are good and bad batches. With Unibroue becoming more commercial perhaps there is reason to expect they are losing that "special touch" that they once had.

750 ml bottle poured into a tulip.
A- Deep brown, near black in color. Light tan head. Great lacing.
S- Dark fruits, prunes and raisins. Sweet malt, fresh baked bread. Belgian yeast notes.
T- Sweet dark fruit, very slight roast. Yeast spiciness.
M- Sweet, fruity, slightly dry in the finish.
O- Very tasty. Sweet and lots of dark fruit notes. The hint of dryness in the finish, pulls the reins on chugging this one down.
