This was from the brick (picked up in December 2012), so it had a year of age on it.
Appearance: Deep, dark brown (more of a dark copper). Creamy head that dissipates quickly. No Lacing.
Aroma: Apples, Brandy, Nutmeg, Fusel Alcohol, Pears, and Toffee.
Taste: Toffee and dried fruit, brandy and green apples. Figs and plums. Caramel and raisins. Booze, but just the right amount.
Feel: Thick, but not overly heavy or chewy. Slightly acidic feel with low carbonation. Can sip on this for days and wish it doesn't end.
Overall: A unique and wonderful beer. Very nice quad. The complexity is unreal. It almost transcends beer. Very good. Malheur 12 used to be my favorite, but no longer.
Serving type: bottle
