Bottle brought from Belgium by a colleague at work... This was a mild bock - drinkable, but forgettable...

PotjeBier (1893) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 5, 2015
Notes from early 90s. Bottle. Color: brown, not too dark (for a bock). Aroma’s: dark malts, caramel, sweet. Flavor is moderate sweet. Light to medium bodied. Light bitter flavor. Had this many times over the years, and it’s never been Chouffe’s best beer, or a very good bock for that matter. Decent enough though.

Svesse (6782) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAR 9, 2015
(Draught at Kafé Belgie, Utrecht, 26 Feb 2015) Dark brown colour with hints of ruby. Frothy, off-white head. Malty, roasted nose with notes of roasted malt, black rye bread and black coffee. Malty, roasted taste with caramel, black rye bread, coffee and a balanced bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with a touch of sweetness. Tasty and well balanced. Quite nice.

Inoven (10) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - JAN 17, 2015
Met de familie een fles gedeeld. Heerlijke kruidige caramel smaak, schuimkraag is vlug weg. Licht tintelend in de mond. Typisch bokbier.

Alengrin (2939) - BELGIUM - JAN 13, 2015
Rating based on old notes relating to the original Achouffe version, from a 75 cl bottle; has been in existence since 1991. Was a straightforward and somewhat simple but very decent and balanced brown ale - intended as a Bock but in fact just another Belgian dubbel, if you ask me - with a malty, caramelly, yeasty flavour with some dried fruits and dryish, lightly toasted finish with lingering sweetness.

Ambrée, presque brune. Assez équilibrée, trop probablement, c’est difficile de trouver du caractère, quelque chose qui s’en dégage. Agréable cela dit.

blackisle (1049) - IJburg, NETHERLANDS - DEC 1, 2014
Bottle 33cl. Clear deep amber brown, small frothy beige head, recedes after a while to a lasting creamy layer, good lacing; aroma sweet malty, roasted, dark fruits, brown sugar, caramel; taste moderate sweet and bitter, roasty; medium body, oily to watery texture, average carbonation, finish dry bittersweet, spicy notes; overall too thin and watery, I expected more from d’Achouffe.

Icedwarf (584) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - NOV 23, 2014
Zwart bier met schuim. Smaak is licht bitter met sporen van chokolade en caramel. Helaas wat waterig.

33 cl bottle. Appearance:Dark ruby with a small beige head. Aroma: Caramel and cookies.vegetal hops. Taste: Quite thin, Sweet malt, brown sugar, low bitterness, a bit sugarry water with alcohol. Except it’s thicker. Thin- Medium body, average carbonation. Dissapointing compared to the other Brasserie d’Achouffe brews.
