A: Dark brown, near black, with lightly tan head that starts heavy and fades quickly, leaving decent lacing.
S: Some funk, some ‘Belgian’ yeast smell, smells crisp, some spices
T: Spicy, funky, heavy malt and light on bitterness, some alcohol in the aftertaste, but not strong considering the strength of the beer
M: Not heavy but not thin, the bubbles are very small and tingly
D: Easily drinkable for the strength of the beer. Look forward to seeing how it ages.

Pours very dark brown with some red hues. A nice fluffy head dissipates rather quickly, but leaves some very nice lacing. Rich smell of malts and dark fruits. Cherries, plums, some nice spices. Wonderful aroma. The taste is equally rich. Cherry dominates, but many of the same things from the aroma show up again on the tongue. Medium body and carbonation. Pretty smooth.

It's a lot like Trois Pistoles, but a little stronger. Trois Pistoles is on the lighter side of Belgian dark ales, and this is in the middle. This beer stands along all of Unibroue's lineup of great beers. Unfortunately, it's a little pricier.

Poured from a 750ml. bottle and split with my wife. Lot is K26102047Q so bottled October 26, 2010.

Appearance: A dark chestnut brown color with lots of foam and wisps of lacing that grows to almost a sheet.

Smell: Dried plums, wood, light dried cherries and some yeast.

Taste: Dried raisins, figs, plums, bit of dried cherries, dry wooden flavor like cork and a bit smoky.

Mouthfeel: Carbonation a tinge high but calms rapidly and is a bit chewy.

Overall: Not as great as i remember a few years ago but still quite good.
