Aged for 6 months: Very dense reddish dark brown color, with a veil of copper, in the light I can see powerful activity. Creamy dark beige 2 finger head, lasting around 5-10 minutes, with poor legs, but decent lacing. Flavors of wild berries, plums, orange, soft chocolate and coffee, oak, light molasses and prunes, dark roasted malts and herbal hops. Bready caramel with sharp Belgian yeast. Milky full body with prickly and crispy carbonation. Medium to strong strength finish, dry clove, lots of dark fruits, roasted barley, spicy, mellow porto like barrel aged feel. A bit earthy and leathery, just pleasant. Nicely balanced, subtly feels like a black IPA. Really fresh, tender, and delicious. Surprisingly accessible for the strength. Overall excellent quality craft.

This beer started great...nice pour into a chalice, deep brown with a reasonable head. Smell was nice if unobtrusive...caramel, malty, some ligjt dark fruit or molasses. The taste even started fine with some tartness among the yeasty belgium-y-ness...but the mouthfeel came off as too thin and the finish seemed weak and without any lasting interest. Hard to describe, but it just seemed to lack depth...like it had the veneer of belgium but was someplace less interesting underneath. Overall, fine. Just not sometging I will seek out again.

I usually love complex dark beers but this one fall short. The pour left little head and the colour was a merky brown, not appealing. The smell was kinda pungent and it didn't taste like a typical beer on lees - it was bitter, lacking depth with a lingering unwelcomed flat and bitter after taste. I won't finish the beer as it isn't work the calories! Seriously! Maybe I got a bad bottle or something. Another reviewer said it was 'thin' and I think that sums it up nicely. Doesn't compare to anything I've had from Unibroue. Very disappointing.
