Unibroue La Resolution

La_Resolution_Unibroue_410x4351Brewer: Unibroue, Chambly QC
Style: Spiced Ale
ABV: 10%
IBU: 21.5

Description: This limited-release beer was inspired by a special recipe that brew master Jerry Vietz concocted for his friends, and which is now available for a limited time. This spiced ale is extra strong, and like all Unibroue products, is refermented in the bottle using active yeast cultures.

Tasting Notes: This is the first time since I tried Unibroue Grand Reserve 17 about two years ago that I’ve had anything new from this brewery. And this was a certainly familiar territory, coming from Unibroue. Despite its strength, this beer is rather mellow in character. The spices are present, but subdued, the rich malt strikes a nice balance between strength and sweetness, and the yeast backbone provides some nice effervescence.

Appearance: Deep brown, near-opaque, good foam retention and carbonation
Nose: Strong malts, figgy pudding, toffee, brown sugar, molasses, allspice
Taste: Roasted malt, good tang, brown sugar, mild yeast, notes of allspice
Aftertaste: Lingering yeasts, malt bitterness, spices
Overall: 8.5/10
