This has been on my want this for quite some time now. Found it for a good price and am very stoked to consume it. Served in a tulip. Served a bit cooler than room temperature.

A: Has a massive beige-cream soapy head to it, takes up half the glass but dissipates within a few minutes. Is a complex burnt red- copper color, very murky, and has small amounts of lacing.

S: Very aromatic, smells of brown sugar, malts, plums, barley, cinnamon, spices, can smell little booze as well. Earthy, bold and complex.

T: Very balanced, very smooth as well. Tastes of barley, malts, Belgian yeast, a bit sweet as well, sugars, plums, other dark fruits, with a slight warm finish from the alcohol.

M: A very balanced and complex beer. Has a full body with lower levels of carbonation, giving it good thickness. Quite boozy and a slow sipper.

O: I've had quite a few brews from Unibroue and I have yet to be disappointed. On the pricey side, put well worth it, I felt I should've let it cooled a little bit more but in this situation I couldn't control myself. Oh well, I'll probably be getting this again sometime soon, well worth it. Recommended by me, it's a great beer.
