A foggy dark chestnut ale, a high off-white head, good lacing and curtains.

Sweet aromas, raisins, almond and sherry. A bit weak.

Sweet red fruits, brown sugar, some cherry seed bitterness.

Medium carbonation, a thick texture and big body, slightly dry.

Easy to drink, covers the high ABV well.

750 ml bottle into chalice, best before DL039/111(no idea). Pours very hazy extremely dark brown color with a 1 finger foamy khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big raisin, apple, pear, prune, caramel, molasses, chocolate, toast, pepper, clove, earth, and yeast spiciness. Damn nice aromas with good strength, balance, and complexity. Taste of raisin, prune, caramel, toast, molasses, chocolate, toffee, clove, earth, pepper, and yeast spiciness. Lingering notes of dark fruits, caramel, molasses, toast, chocolate, toffee, earth, and yeast spiciness on the finish for a good bit. Excellent balance and complexity of flavors with good depth; no cloying flavors after the finish at all. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a slick and lightly prickly mouthfeel that is very nice. Alcohol is extremely well hidden with only a small warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is an excellent Belgian strong dark ale! Very nice depth and complexity; and quite smooth to sip on. No idea on the age of this bottle; but I would have to say it probably is fairly old and it definitely holds up well. This is a very enjoyable sipper.

33cl bottle poured into Malheur snifter
Vintage: 27/07/2006

Enjoyed at DHvL in early June 2012. Thanks to kscaldef for sharing this!

A: Medium/dark brown. Half (mocha) fingernail head on medium pour.

S: Smells of raisin, fig, wood, and touch of vanilla. Toffee sweetness, malt, and alcohol. Complex and rich. Smells smooth.

T: Mellow and muddled mix of everything in the nose, but a very pronounced oak and chocolate presence. Deep and somewhat easy to drink, but booze could mellow a bit.

M: Full bodied with appropriate carbonation.

O: Overall a good beer, but might get a bit better with age.

Grabbed a 3 year old 750ml bottle of Malheur from my cellar - a wait well worth it. Served in a St. Bernardus chalice.

Dark brown, nearly maroon color with significant haze. Tons of sediment in each glass - probably a mixture of both the aging and the style of beer. Nose is exceedingly sugary, which belies the flavor, and you can definitely sense the alcohol.

This is essentially what you expect from a quad. Raisins, brown sugar, toffee, a little bit of chocolate. Lots of flavor in this, and all in a good way. A light carbonation in the beer with nice fine bubbles. Overall a very enjoyable drink, particularly when paired with a good meal.
