The beer comes in a dark reddish brown.

The aroma offers big port wine. Musty red grapes, dark sweet fruit, spice, dark caramel sweetness.

The flavor follows with those sweet dessert wine notes. Lots of concord grape peel on the middle that offers some bitterness to balance out the brew. Some dark fruit, banana, and clove help out the beer. A really good medium plus mouthfeel.

I preferred this over Trois Pistoles in a side by side.

Poured into a snifter

A: Blackish brown. A thick, tawny one finger head that dissipates down to foam. Thick lacing.

S: Dark fruits (plums, dates, raisins, figs), Belgian yeast.

T: Follows nose with serious carbonation. Belgian yeast really shines though. Funky. Coriander pops up as it warms. Just terrific.

M: Medium to heavy with thick carbonation.

O: Another winner from Unibroue. I will definitely be purchasing this one again. A steal at $10.

My absolute favorite beer that I have access to.
Smell, color and of course taste. It's everything I want in a beer.
Opaque, dark brown near black, fruity nose and initial taste then as
To the Belgium yeast. I love Belgium beers and I love strong dark ales the most
and this is the best I've had. Well worth the price.
