maekchu (2085) - Hirakata, JAPAN - MAR 21, 2013
Bottle. Aged around five years. Thanks to Kyoto Lefty. Sweet candy, heavy caramel, honey aroma. Clear tea brown, almost no head. Sweet dark caramel / mid palate goes very sugary, with raisins and dark fruit and hot alcohol / finish is solid and rich. Thin medium body. Pleasant moderate flavors, all working well together.

jbruner (2298) - Athens, Georgia, USA - MAR 20, 2013
2010 bottle thanks to Paul. Pours a dark brown from the bottle with bubbly tan cap and light lacing. Aaron’s is like a champagne with a hint of dark roasted malts. Taste is Belgian yeast, booze, dark fruity esters, hint of roast. Bubbly on the tongue but a big burn in the way down. Weird, interesting.

Viper666 (2763) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 24, 2013
Bouteille, provenant d’un échange effectué en 2006. De couleur brune et voilée. Nez de caramel avec des notes de sucre brun et de chocolat noir, léger de levures fruitées (léger de cerises, de prunes et de raisins vineux) aux notes épicées et léger d’alcool. Moyennement ronde et assez pétillante en bouche avec une texture rappelant le champagne. Goût de levures fruitées (cerises sucrées, léger de raisins vineux, notes de prunes et de cerises noires) et légèrement épicé (clou de girofle et coriandre) lors de l’entrée en bouche suivi d’un goût de caramel aux notes rôtis avec un léger goût de chocolat noir ainsi que des notes de sucre brun puis en finale l’on retrouve un léger goût d’alcool aux notes vineuses avec des notes épicées (poivrées) et de houblon floral asséchant. Post-goût moyen-long et un peu sec, légèrement amer d’alcool, de houblon et de chocolat avec un léger goût de levures fruitées (notes de cerises sucrées et de raisins).

75 cl bottle.
Originally rated on 20101206.
Pours dark brown color with a medium sized head. Aroma of dark malts, dark ripe fruits, some citrus notes too, caramel, toffee and mild spices, not too yeasty. Flavor of dark malts, caramel, some toffee, spices, nice licorice notes, ripe fruits and some alcohol notes on finish. Very complex yet well balanced beer. Top notch.

tom10101 (2726) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 7, 2013
Bottle (750 ml). Amber brown with a small off-white head and some lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, candi sugar, dark fruits and chocolate. Taste is moderately sweet with roasted malt, candi sugar, grapes, dark fruits and chocolate. Medium body. Interesting mouthfeel (champagne-like). Alcohol (too) well hidden. Very good beer, way better than the regular Malheur Brut.
