Overall one of the best strong beers I have ever had. It has a very balanced flavor with a slightly sweet finish. It packs a punch on the ABV scale but the taste does not come across as such.

A little bit of chocolate, spicy hop and clove in the finish. Mouthfeel: Velvety. Overall: A real good beer. It doesnít stand out from others in itís style, so itís good, but not outstanding.

direwolf9 (29) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 15, 2009
I have an affinity for the stronger beers. At $16 a 4-pack at Central Market in Dallas this is not one I choose often but its a supurb beer. A little sweeter than I like but after one taste you know its still right up there in the upper echelons of good beers. At 12% alc if you drink all 4 during an evening you could easily become the life of the party.

750ml bottle from Liquid Solutions. Nose of vanilla, candi sugar, and golden raisins. Very dark but clear brown with a big beige head. Flavor is caramels, candi sugary sweetness, and some yeasty vanilla. Finish shows a slight tinge of alcohol warmth and some lingering candi sugar.

beerbill (3574) - Laurel, New York, USA - JUN 6, 2009
330 ml bottle courtesy of a trade with AtlAggie. Pours deep brown that allows just a bit of light to pass. The moderate tan colored head lasts through mid-glass and leaves a layer of foam with each sip. Pleasant aroma of malt, brown sugar and just a bit of earthiness. The flavor is similar with rich, sweet malt, brown sugar and just a bit of earthiness. Some mild warmth from the alcohol at the finish in no way interferes with the enjoyment of this beer. At 12% abv, this is way too easy to drink!

Had from bottle at GOBF. Very dark body. Smells like dark fruit and sugar. Tastes very belgiany like brown sugar and candy. Also deceptively easy to drink. Very tastey.

MoritzF (8726) - looking for a flat around Munich, GERMANY - MAY 21, 2009
(25cl bottle) Hazy, mahogany colour with a thick beige foamy head. Slightly sugary sweet toast-malty aroma with chocolate, raisins, light notes of spices and a tinge of alcohol and herbal hops. Sweet flavour with a tinge of sourness, full bodied with a smooth carbonation. Robust toast-malty taste with caramel and almost vinous fruity notes, leading into a sweet and slightly bitter finish with a hearty alcoholic burn. Another good Malheur (21.V.09).
