These Canadians can sure put out a beer...

I can describe this high ABV beer in a single word: Unique. It had a very unique look with the dark brown, red highlights and thick but quickly dissipating head - enough remained for lacing to be visible. Unique in smell as it did not have that overpowering boozy tang to the nose and for that matter on the mouth. Though I will admit, it started chugging it almost and then it hit and I had to slow down (I think Imma gonna sleepa gooda tonight...) Anyway, unique taste due to this light boozy background that hits you later, and hits you it does. A very good brew and a unique representative of the style.

Pours a dark brown with a two inch, fairly well retained tan head that left nice lacing. Smells and tastes of dark fruits (figs, prunes and raisins), yeast, spices, some sweet malts, bread and a hint of tobacco. Medium to heavy bodied, well carbonated, slightly dry finish.

Nice look with dark brown body and a dense white head.
This beer is very spicy with pepper, cinnamon, etc.
Some dark fruits, prune and dates mostly.
Nice quad

Looks very appealing. A dark brown color with a thick head. A very nice fragrant aroma. Tastes very thick and rich. It's almost like drinking a dessert. I enjoyed it, but probably couldn't drink more than one before switching to a lighter beer.

I recently drove over 500km / 300 miles to get this beer and several others not available where I live. It took me exactly one smell and one mouthful to know that every mile was worth it. It also confirms that Unibroue really knows what they're doing - every beer I've had of theirs (12 so far) has been exceptional.

12oz bottle dated 10/20/19. Pours a dark brown with two fingers of tan head. Smells of dried fruit and spices. Medium feel with small bubbles. Smooth, slightly sweet taste with some dark fruit and yeast flavors. As good as the Belgian versions of this style.

An opaque, very dark mahogany, with a billowy, 3 finger tan, foamy head, that lasts, and leaves some nice lacing. The aroma is of candied fruits, tons of dark dried fruit, rum raisin ice cream. and it still manages to have a balanced, not overly sweet smell. I think there is just a little tart green apple, and earthiness, there. The flavor is really nice. All of those deep dark dried fruits, but not too sweet, by a long shot. On the finish, I get some pipe tobacco and a leather quality. The feel is full carbonation, which pushes the flavors around the palate, dry overall, and medium-ish body. Very nice brew.

A wonderful beer! Poured from a bottle into a tulip glass. Gorgeous thick foamy head on top of a dark mahogany body. Beautiful view lacing! Sweet dark fruit smell and taste, but not too sweet. Caramel and vanilla notes. Apples and a bit of citrus.

Like their other offering La Fin Du Monde this is a GREAT beer and at 9% so smooth. Beer pours a dark brown with a thick tan head that dissipates slowly. The smell is pleasant with some chocolate notes. The taste is raisins and chocolate. Overall a must try.
