4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: OCT 12, 2008 25 cL bottle. Pours deep brown/black with light brown head. Aroma is fruity (plum and raisins), hops, coffee and malt. Taste has the same in a wineous blend - and what a perfect blend! Fruit, coffee and wineous are the keynotes that I would put to this beer. I have a new favourite!

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: FEB 3, 2010 Bottle:
Malheur 12 is a cloudy dark brown beer with a nice dense head. The head diminishes quite fast, but it never dissapears. Carbonation on this bottle was too extreme. I almost couldn’t get the bottle cap off, and when I finally did, the beer was overflowing. I should be said that it has not been shaked anytime, and has laid still in my beer storage the last week. It might be a mistake during the bottling, as I did not have these problems the first time I tried this beer.
The aroma has some cherries, yeast, and caramel. The flavor is marked by berries (cherry wine), liquorice root, and maybe some pepper. The finish is consisting of a long lasting bitterness and a solid touch of alcohol. Nice palate, soft and creamy. Quite drinkable 12% ABV beer, and a pleasure to enjoy this cold and snowy evening.

The first thing i smell when this hits the glass is hot alcohol blended with grapes and baker’s chocolate. Further examination reveals layers of complexity and sweet malt and hop notes, also some strawberries and banana. Flavor is more of the same, very full and powerful, well-rounded and warming. Forthright and dangerously drinkable, a monster of a strong ale.

Thanks aspidites. Pours out a deep burgundy reddiesh/brown color (almost like cherrywood) with a lot of floaties. Aroma is a little oak, lots of black cherries, some figs and sweet malt. Flavors were just about on par with the nose with a bit more fruit and chocolate coming thru. Overall, pretty nice.

sampled in Poperinge en route to In de Verde: nose is alcohol, hops, and carmel malt, in that order. dark brown beer that poured into a trappist glass with only a small head, I wish that I had poured it more vigurously. While alcohol is very precent in the flavor as well... it is a bit too much but does work to complement the hops. I liked the sting up the hops and the alcohol with some malt rounding it out. Nice active and silky mouthfeel Still really good. and pretty cheap.
