Malheur 12 has an extremely thick, fizzy, foamy, beige head, which dies away, leaving no lacing, and a clear, very bubbly, copper appearance. The beer clouds up when the bottom caked contents and swished and poured in. The aroma is of rich, overly-ripe fruit, yeasty bread, and brandy. Taste is rich- brandy, bitter, old fruit, and dark, sweet bread crust. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy and slick. Malheur 12 finishes semi-dry, rich, sweet, alcohilic, and somewhat harsh. Overall, this is a very good, strong, manly ale, and I loved it!

330 ml. bottle. Pours an opaque brown almost black colour, with a head that fades quickly leaving a strong lace. Smells of dried fruits, figs, raisins, chocolate. Spicy and fruity. Sticky sweet palate, not much carbonation (and no needed). Taste of dried fruits, pepper, spices, chocolate. It warms your throat like brandy and leaves you asking for more, even with its 12º. Great.

Smell: the sweet cream and subtle mint is a fairly unique characteristic in beer, especially from a quadruple

Taste: milk chocolate, minus the heavy malts, pervade throughout along with ruby-red grapefruit; an odd pairing of flavor

The beer wasn't terrible by any means, even with the odd flavor combination, but rather, the beer was unique in its eccentricity; the beer wasn't life changing but I would recommend it

PAIRS very well with orange chicken for some reason
