Pours a deep, almost opaque brown with amber highlights. The head is sizeable and tan but quickly recedes to a nice cap.

Nose presents with a faceload of yeast first that is then complemented by dark fruit. Plenty of plum and some fig as well as clove. Slight cocoa and cola and I also get some cherry.

Taste presents similar to the nose but with much more forward cherry that gives a sweet balance to the yeast character. Cola is present on the back of my tongue and the spice character comes in just before the dry finish that features a lingering bready yeastiness.

Highly crisp carbonation that belies a smooth medium body.

Overall, quite impressed with this one. Great that the four pack unibroue tasters are going for 8 bucks...get some.

Appearance - Pours a deep, murky garnet brown with 1.5 finger width of dense beige head.

Smell - Bananas, clove, yeast, dark fruits (cherry).

Taste - Sweetness of the dark fruits comes through initially, along with a flavour that reminds me of being oaked. A touch of spiciness and very slightly bitter in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Smooth quality with a pleasant dry finish.

Overall - A good Belgian strong dark ale from Unibroue. The dark fruit flavours are quite enjoyable, as well as the oaked quality to it. Definitely worth a try!
