Malheur 12

A dark, Belgian strong ale. 12% ABV. 750 mL bottle with cork & cage. Brewed by DeLandtsheer Brewery in Buggenhout. Pours deep mahogany with a thin, off-white head. Sweet flavor, with notes of dried fruit, raisin, fig. Also brown sugar and molasses. Surprisingly smooth and easy to drink, with only a hint of alcohol in aroma and flavor. While it didn't blow my mind, I did enjoy having a strong beer that warmed me up but didn't take a while for me to finish, though I did share it with my girlfriend. Overall, a great beer, but I'll try others of the type before coming back to this one.
