750 ml bottle. Russet brown colour with a thick, mostly lasting creamy and rocky head. Fruity and yeasty aroma with light caramel notes. Slight acidity, then toffee, brown sugar, alcohol, bread, yeast, and smoky flavours. Alcohol burn a little too apparent for my liking. Medium to full body, dry and lightly fizzy mouthfeel.

Nice smell, filling taste, feel good on the tongue, not too dark in colour nor in taste, it is very good for meat and pultry. Altogether very drinkable

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Appearance: dark red/amber color, a nice full rocky, tan head--lively and effervescent. Good head retention and a resilient lace. Aroma: spicy, cloves, and alcohol. The taste is complex: creamy and somewhat sweet, but not overpowering. The taste seems to change and develop more character in the middle and toward the finish. Very drinkable beer.

Not as great as Chouffe N’ice, but still a real good ale,..why is it grouped as "A scotch ale"?? Dark and sweet, not as many aromas as expected, but still good.

A Scotch Ale? This is easily the best scotch ale I have ever had. The pour is brown with a tall bubbly, soapy head. The aroma is spicy and raisany. There is plenty of sparkling carbonation. Quite refreshing and very good at clearing the palate. No lingering aftertaste or film in my mouth like I have experienced with cheaper scotch ales I have had before. This was delicious.

8 May 2004 - LIght complex fruit malt, herbaceous, with some chocolate notes. Soap suds lacing, medium light brown head and a cloudy dark colour. Sweet hoppy long taste with a nice bitter balance. Sparling earthy aftertaste.

Now this is a Chouffe I can enjoy. A great overall beer that I haven’t had in a while, but I remember loving it. I recently got a bottle from a bud for my b-day, so I must rerate.

Deep dark murky brown color, small, but simmering, tan head. Aroma: mollasses, nuts, butter, cream, dates, raisins, dark rum, all the rich flavors one can imagine. Thick, full, hot mouthfeel, full body, tingly hops. Super-charged with hops, the flavor keeps on coming, simmers and stews, with a long lasting, rich, satisfying finish! Takes the cake for all brown ales everywhere, past, present, future. Round, delicious, sensuous, and utterly lip smackin’!
