Unibroue - Terrible

I was perusing the beer aisle of my local Whole Foods a couple days ago and I stumbled upon two new beers that I had never seen before. Here is the first one that I saw... Terrible is a dark ale by a brewing house up in Canada. Unibroue has been around since 1990 and was founded by André Dion and Serge Racine. The website is very cool, so if you are interested, check it out at: I couldn't help but purchase this beer, it comes in a black bottle with a silver negative space logo and silver text on the bottle. This is a cork bottle and includes 750ml of darker than dark ale. I can't remember the exact price, but I bet it was right around $10-$12 for this bottle. The ABV on this is rather high as well, coming in at 10.5%. This beer is a nice dark black with a sliver of red on the sides and bottom of the glass. The head wasn't anything spectacular, but it lingered for a few minutes before dissipating. This beer smells like a Belgian Triple, with hints of citrus and a strong smell of alcohol. The first sip had flavors of sour and earthy tones that I couldn't place my hand on. This beer is anything but terrible! I am going to give this a 4/5 stars on the non-Belgian ale scale. This beer has a dark color and a very deep bodied flavor. I would recommend this for a day just like today, where it is a bit over cast and cold and you would like something flavorful and dark.

See you at the bar!
