Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - JAN 19, 2008
Pour is dark and still-seeming cola color with a big bubbled fast fading tan head that subsided into a this skin/ring...smell is sweet and musty with molasses, toffee, caramel, some anise/licorice spice notes as well...taste is curious...very light mouthfeel and flavor, especially for a 12% beer...some alcoholic notes were present in the nose, but very little is present in the flavor...the caramel and spicy licorice notes are there, but also very subtle...nice light mouthfeel and flavor profile...not a whole lot going on there...quick lightly sweet finish...definitely drinkable...

Ratman197 (11384) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JAN 17, 2008
750 ml corked and caged bottle poured a clear dark brown with ruby highlights and a large lasting tan head. Aromas of toffee, spice, candy sugar, dark fruit and molasses. Palate was medium bodied, smooth and warming. Flavors of toffee, spice, plum, candy sugar, raisins and carmel with a smooth warming lightly sweet finish.
A very enjoyable Belgian with lots going on. While it.s got some warming it is’nt as hot as you’d expect for 12%.

ChainGangGuy (4559) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JAN 15, 2008
Appearance: Pours a clouded, dark reddish-brown body with a thin, short-lived off-white head. Lightly effervescent. Smell: Rich, malty aroma with notes of toffee, dark candi sugar, juicy plums, yeast, and just a hint of hops. Taste: Dark maltiness with dark caramel and some chocolate. Lightly tart-tasting fruity compote flavor with spiced sugar hints and a dusting of cocoa powder. Faint yeastiness. Never more than a light bitterness. Peppery on the warming finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Well carbonation. Slight stickiness to the mouthfeel. Drinkability: A good beer with plenty of flavor and complexity. For the most part, I’m enjoying the Malheur brews.

jsh12bama (681) - Alabama, USA - JAN 5, 2008
Pours dark brown with thin tan/off white head. Aroma of dark fruits but could not detect much of anything. Medium body with raisins, and vegetables. Slight notice of alcohol in the aftertaste. Average.

rauchbier (3668) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2007
Tap, at ZBF 2006. Bronze, thin yellowy white head and moderate condition. Gentle alcoholic figgy fruitiness in the aroma, big raisin fruitiness in the mouth with a strange herbal/vegetable note, lingering dry earthiness in the finish.

Maria (10191) - Thisted, DENMARK - DEC 17, 2007
25 cl. bottle. Brown/black with a nice head and good lace. The aroma is wonderful with notes of dark fruits, caramel and sweetness. I get the same impressions in the flavour, where plum, figs and citrus are the most clear notes. I also get a hint of chocolate and the overall impression is very balanced. It’s a truly nice beer, IMO just as nice as many trappists.

Furseth (2026) - Kungälv, SWEDEN - DEC 16, 2007
Bottle(thanks to rickgordon)2002: Hazy red colour, with a nice creamy head. Aroma of spicy,citrus,sournes,complex beer this one. Flavor was almost the same here. The eage has done this beer good. Medium to full body, medium fruity finish.

Miksu (5027) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - NOV 25, 2007
0.25 l bottle. Mahagony color, very fizzy and foams over strongly. Sweet, raisiny, perfumed, toffeish and berryish aroma with strong warming alcohol note. Sweet liquerish flavor with raisins, pepper, licorice and rum. Alcohol warming and sharpness is too intense.

voota (765) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - NOV 14, 2007
Clear dark brown with a tiny off-white head. Aroma of prunes, raisins, toffee and cocoa... perhaps a note of cinnamon too. Very full, sweet body... loads of fruit and spice in the flavour, rum, vanilla and toffee too. Brown sugar and light alcohol in the finish (nowhere near 12%), sweet.. but very very nice.
