75cl Bottle / Reserve 2003 - BBD = 01/01/2009 Excellent beer, has aged incredibly well. I think I’ve found a new favourite. I have several aged bottles of malheur 12, but this beer variant had kept up even better. Roasty aroma of dark chocolate and coffee with some resins. A velvety body, with enough carbonation left on this thirteen year old bottle. Overall a very complex beer and a savoury experience.

23Skidoo (69) - SWEDEN - FEB 7, 2016
Very tasty, reminds of dark chocolate, chocolate cookies, candy sugar, dark honey, and waffles with chocolate. Unmistakably Belgian, especially the aroma: powerful, evoking memories of a good abt/quad, but a bit more on the gentle/pastry side. Velvety body. Some alcohol on the nose. Doesn’t feel very dry to me, but the sweetness is very well balanced by hops.

DarkMagus (500) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 10, 2016
A dark reddish brown color with a bit of haziness. Thin white head. Aroma of dried dark fruits, cherries, dates, figs. Flavors were more of the dried dark fruits along with roasted biscuity malt, graham cracker, vanilla, chocolate, candi sugar, alcohol, and a touch of bitterness. Soft silky mouthfeel but prickly on the tongue with medium to high carbonation. Amazing!

Geokkjer (7262) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 2, 2016
Bottle. Pours dark brown with an off-white head. Aroma of chocolate, malt, grains, caramel and fruitiness. Flavor is sweet and malty with some caramel, vanilla, fruitiness and bread. Medium body, average carbonation.

Linnet (1633) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - DEC 27, 2015
Extensive barrelaging, lovely rich, vanilla and butterscotch, ABV evident, dried fruits, chocolate, woody, just lovely. Hazy ruby colour, big beige head, lacing. Heavily sweet, lightly salty, lightly bitter, complex, the lovely butterscotch, vanilla-notes come through a lot rendering the beer layers of complexity. Fullbodied, lively carbonation, complex warming and sophisticated finish. World class.

Jaumix (11) - Malaga, SPAIN - DEC 27, 2015
Out of date for a year, extremely tastey. Great body with hints of dark chocolate to it. It’s a "must try". Better to share

Ktwse (3839) - Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2015
Pours cloudy medium brown with a couple of fingers of off-white head. Aroma of chocolate, dark dried fruit, bourbon (?) barrels, muscovado, nuts, and more... It’s been a long while since I truly felt a beer had a complex nose, but this one definitely scores on that. Taste is sweet, boozy, bourbon and vanilla, raisins and corinthians, mild nutty sweet finish. Rich, creamy body with soft carbonation. Very positively surprised!

75 cl bottle @ home. Dark brown beer with a big, creamy beige head, bit adhesive. Aroma is nuts, raisins, madeira, dark fruits. Medium to high carbonation. Taste is dark fruits, nuts, chocolate, sweet, yet not too much, madeira. Aftertaste is sweet, bit yeasty, nuts, alcohol. Very nice!

LLaurin (277) - Motala, SWEDEN - NOV 24, 2015
Pouring beautifully with reddish colour and a firm of white head. Taste is lingering and sweet with some alcoholic sweetness but almost like a barley wine. Very round and oily longlasting palate and finish. Some spices and herbs to go along.
