I tried this at Quencher's Saloon in Chicago. $8 for a 330ml brown bottle poured into a brandy snifter.

The beer was dark brown in color - almost black. Just 1-finger's worth of tan head that dissipated to just a rim in under a minute. Not much lacing to speak of.

Huge fruit and candy smell. Picking up mostly sweet prunes and raisins along with some alcohol.

Heavily malted with a burnt sugar taste. Plums, prunes, and raisins make up the fruit component while the alcohol imparts a spicy peppery taste. Hops are herbal and not that bitter.

Silky smooth and full bodied mouthfeel with a warming alcohol feeling on the way down. Carbonation is medium.

At 12% alcohol this is definitely a sipping beer, and a good one at that.

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!

A - Pours a raisin color with light carbonation and sticky on the glass.

S - Brown sugar, yeasty bready presence, nutmeg, light alcohol.

T - Brown sugar, dark fruit - plums, figs, raisins, slightly spicy, bready, yeasty, light alcohol, mildly sweet dark Belgian candy sugar. Lingering caramel/toffee warm spiciness and warming on the way down.

M - Sticky, thick, full bodied, light carbonation but enough to be prickly.

O - Overall, a solid Quad.

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.
