Dark, smooth, malty and complex

I prefer the other Unibroue offerings, particularly Fin du Monde. This wasn't really special.

Heavy malt deep fruitish dark ale aged in French oak. 10% but still somewhat kind in the bite dept. no headache resulted. Would surely get again. Unibroue wins again.

Why am I surprised? By now I should have know that everything Unibroue does, regardless of my personal taste, is going to be a quality example of its type and the Grand Reserve 17 is no exception. Heavier than their Trios Pistoles with a fuller flavor. Another winner from Unibroue.

One of the better Belgian beers I've had so far. Fruity plum and raisin taste, great balance, slippery. Very good beer. profile - January 1, 2014

Fruity nose, piney, warty notes as well. It is robust. Oaky, raisins and dark fruits. Some chocolate in the finish. Very nice brew!

Complex aroma of dark fruits, Belgian yeast, warm alcohol and something else that I can best describe as minerally. Definitely some bite to the flavor. The yeast flavor is kind of sharp and it lingers pretty long. If you aren't a fan of Belgian beers steer clear. If you want a Belgian strong ale that isn't as sharp, go for Gulden Draak.
