La Terrible – Unibroue

10.5% ABV
Purchased at Corti  Brothers and poured into globe glasses.

His Notes:

Quebec-based Unibroue’s La Terrible pours a ruddy black with a fluffy but quickly retreating desert sand-colored head, and a nose of black licorice, pepper, and rustic bread.  This Strong Belgian Dark Ale possesses a very complex palate that mixes raisins, nutmeg and pepper spices, dark fruits, spun candy, and coffee.  La Terrible leaves an immense bread and dried fruit impression that lingers pleasurably on the tongue, and takes on more and more complex bitterness the longer it sits.  A strong but contemplative slow-sipper, this would be a magnificent desert beer to pair with heavy deserts like caramel brownies or rum cake in place of coffee.
