Bottle picked up at the brewery store from a Sep 2008 visit with my brother. The beer poured a brilliantly clear, off white head, massive and fluffy. The aroma was slightly citrus and a nice malt tone as well. The taste is very pleasing. Nice toasted character and some caramel notes and also a good bitterness on the tongue. Definitely worth picking up if you can find.

MiP (13799) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JAN 2, 2009
Bottle, 6.66%. Weak malty and yeasty aroma. Clear dark amber colour. Big stable tan head. The flavour has some rough bitterness and graininess. There is also some yeast. Good maltiness. Quite citric, a bit like too much aroma hop was used.

TBone (13002) - Pori, FINLAND - DEC 18, 2008
Bottled 75 cl BB 08/2011. Clear dark amber color, small off-white head. Fruity-hoppy aroma. Achouffe-like hayish fruity hoppy flavor but with added caramel malts. Sweetish, sweeter than rest of Achouffe line. Nice bock, another good one from this top brewery.

Thanx to Thierry and Bianca. Taste with William and other beerlovers on 22.11.08. Hazy amber color, with creamy beige head. Aroma malts, some yeast, caramel. Medium body. Taste bit sweet, caramel and bitter touch. Not bad.

Bottled. Thanks jbrus!. Reddish amber colour, beige creamy big head. Aroma is caramel, some mild alcohol, hops and yeast. Flavour is the same along with quite strong notes of juniper. Close to normal Chouffe in many ways, but this one has a bit more complexity in my opinion.
