2006 bottle from my cellar shared with 4 friends.
An excellent beer. It was a bit lively (after a long cycle ride). Great taste

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
(Drinking date: 16 March 2014) A nice aroma. You smell alcohol, sweetness, chocolate, raisins and also a bit of fresh hops. Very dark brown, clear beer with a big layer of beige foam, which reduces quickly. Very lovely sweet, warm taste, with a small bitterness in it to compensate the sweetness. But most of all a sweet beer. You also taste a bit of chocolate malts. The alcohol leaves a warm, burning feeling in the mouth and throath. Sweet aftertaste. The mouthfeel is soft, but also with a good carbonation. Love it. Overall, I am really enjoying this beer. I didn?t have high expectations of this beer honestly, but I really really love it. Nice sweet, soft beer, with a lovely aroma and taste. That?s why I give it the total score of 4.2!

33 cl bottle. Dark with little carbonation. Aroma: sweet fruit, raisins and alcohol. Taste: sweet. Palate: a little bitter aftertaste, overall wekk balanced. I like it but would like a little more carbonation and frothy head.

Bottle, poured dark brown, cloudy with a huge beige head that dissipates quickly leaving a decent amount of lacing on the glass. The aroma is mostly dark fruit and alcohol. Taste is sweet, raisins, dates some spices and lots of booze. Enjoyable beer, not bad at all.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Mahogany. Beige had that diminishes quickly. Good lacing. Sweet and vineous aroma. Blackcurrant, red wine, dates and dark caramel. Sweet in taste with full mothfeel. Rhum rasins, red wine and caramel. Aftertaste sweet aftertaste of rasins and the finest port. No evidence of the high alcohol neither in aroma or taste.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Compared to other strong belgian beers this one is very spicy and boozy (too much) sweet taste with honey. Finishes with an odd bitter taste. Will not buy this one again although price is ridiculous

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A dark brown beer with a big and beige head. The nose is strongly dark fruity and nicely sweet, dates and raisins, honey, some lighter fruits, also some alcohol that indicates what is coming. Rich and dark fruits dominates the taste that is nicely smooth, sweet raisins, some spices, no alcohol. Taste is quite simple but balanced. Medium+ bodied that is lighten by high and smooth carbonation. Malheur 12 is better beer than I expected. Quite simple beer that is dominated by sweet and dark fruits but still balanced despites of huge alcohol %.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Flaske 0,33l fra Vinmonopolet, bestillingsutvalget. Drukket hjemme 16 Jun 13. Mørkebrun. Lavt, litt farget skum. Forsiktig prommearoma. Smaken er mandler. Bra balanse. Blir etter hvert veldig tørr. Mye kullsyre. Alkoholen godt kamuflert. Litt skuffende.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle Beers of Europe. Big fruity aroma, sherry and brandy notes, soft, warming palate. Its subtle in strength but big on flavour. Touch of dryness in the finish, but the overriding character is that big sweet flavour. Excellent.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This one poured a hazy medium brown with a beige head. roma was of toast, brown sugar and belgian spices. Falvor was similar, fairly soft and dark fruity, hiding the alcohol pretty wel.
