As dark as a raven’s wing with a nice retro style beige froth on top. Tastes like a liquorice punch in the face. Very nice.

harrisoni (13884) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2006
Bottle at Paters Vaetje, Antwerp. Very dark brown with thin beige head. Carries its strength well. Burnt dark malts. Bit creamy in mouth. Some very dark fruits, bit of liquorice sourness. Actually, strong and sickly as it warmed up but then gets better.

saxo (14095) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - FEB 22, 2006
Bottle. Very dark amber color. Head is nice with meidum duration. Aroma is rich and complex. Taste is dominated by spices and alcohol - a bit to vinous to be perfect.

sunevdj (3203) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - DEC 2, 2005
UPDATED: APR 23, 2006 Pours dark brown, with a tanned head. No lacing. Very nice sharp sweetnes. Aromas of caramel, prunes, yeast, alcohol and port. Quite full. Finishes sweet and malty with some alcohol. Wonderful sipping beer.

Hunsell (400) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 10, 2005
Very dark mahogany with a nice tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, plums and grapes. Very sweet (but not cloying), with dark fruits, chocolate and dark malts. Slightly alcoholic finish. Surprisingly drinkable for its strength.

Tejas (872) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 13, 2005
To begin with, this is one BIG S.O.B. of a beer. Don’t know if I could handle a 750ml but it would be fun to try!!! Reddish brown color. A tiny layer of foam resided on top. Malty flavor but especially loaded with lots of chocolate flavor. Alcohol finish but not a harsh one. Thick oily mouthfeel. This is definitely a sipping beer and a good one at that.

Pernille (518) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 13, 2005
This was sold to me as resembling a barley wine. It does, but it’s much stronger and more alcoholic. It’s actually almost too alcoholic. But wonderfully rich and ripe.

Malheur 12 is among the best of the non-trappist dark, strong ales. It is a very dark, muddy ale with an exceptionally powerful taste of dark malt and caramel. The aroma is a little too port-like to my taste, but the nicely balanced, spicy bitterness in the aftertaste compensates for this.

(Bottle 0,25L) Dark brown, light brown head - quickly dissapearing. Great taste with notes of caramel, chocolate, hops & roasted malt. A highly enjoyable strong ale..

thebeertourist (4859) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 18, 2005
Dark brown with red tones. Creamy tan and stable head. Bitter chocolate and dried fruits in the aroma. Warming alcohol, caramel, sweet yet balanced by good bitterness.Soft on the palate.How would this beer taste in 3 to 5 years?
