Pours a dark cherry brown with awesome white head.

The smell is of pepper and sweet dark fruits.

The front of the tongue you get hit with a smooth fruity note.

The back comes in with a huge, almost cloying, spicy prune. Big big spice and maple syrup.

Thick mouth feel but luckily the carbonation pushes it down quick enough.

Overall a great beer. I have yet to be truly let down by a Unibroue beer.
