Yeasty and pilsner aroma. Nice transparent brown color with a light fluffy head. Flavor is kind of a let down with some spicy flavors, yeast, alcohol flavors present. Body is light and fluffy with light carbonation. Overall it is an intersting beer that deserves a look. My first beer on my 21st birthday!!

Absolutely delicous. Pours dark mahogany brown colour. Aroma of fruits and spices is delightful. Dominant flavour is delicous stewed plums. Little bits of spice in the finish. Very good.

UPDATED: DEC 17, 2004 Nice beer. Doesn’t rank up in the top Belgians. I agree with the other person who said that. A great looking beer. Looks too much like St. Bernardus 12. The flavor is not very strong. Comes up a bit short in my book. The aroma is more present then the taste. I’m glad I had this and I look forward to more of the beers from Achouffe.

Clear mahogany coloring with a frothy white head. Aromas and flavors of both a brown and a kriek.

dirkules (629) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 5, 2004
Another wonderful product from the dAchouffe family... the yeast lingers around in typical in a chouffe aroma. A most smooth ale that reeks of chocolates and toffees in a way quite unlike a porter or a stout. A great sampler and a great beer

maeib (8585) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - NOV 29, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 13, 2011 Draught - White Horse - Parsons Green London SW6. A deep brown coloured beer with some candy sugar in both the aroma and taste. There is some spritziness to it but it is thin and not really reminiscent of a Scotch ale IMO. Score 3.1
Subsequent ratings scored 3.8 and 3.7. Average becomes 3.5

DanielBrown (3702) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2004
On tap at the White Horse, Parsons Green, London (as part of their Old Ale festival), with Joeh, Kook, Duff and Maeib. Dark brown. Cleaner than I expected. Farmyard flavour, but not too complex. Roasted sugar and some bitterness to finish. OK, but not a top Belgian.

zathrus13 (1703) - Mount Laurel, New Jersey, USA - NOV 23, 2004
Pours brown, with a vigorous head that dies almost immediately. Aromas are malt, yeast, and alcohol. Flavor starts out sweet, with spice, malt, and a bit of mustiness.

Boutip (4637) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 9, 2004
Bottle: Poured a brown color ale with a huge bubbly off-white head with average retention. Aroma is comprised of strong Belgian malt with a side of floral hops and a top of yeast. Taste is somewhat spicy, creamy and ends with a dry bitter aftertaste. Another quite complex beer from this fine brewery. I’m not sure I really detect the scotch ale influence in this one but I enjoyed it nonetheless.
