dornoy (701) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 2, 2004
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

igel (196) - New Mexico, USA - SEP 1, 2004
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.

Hansen (6628) - Assentoft, DENMARK - AUG 30, 2004
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.

shadey (1899) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 29, 2004
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.

Lunkie (1404) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - AUG 29, 2004
Spiritus malr aroma. Dark brown colour with good head. Sweet malt flavour with long feel. Smooth palate.

vanvenlo (1236) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - AUG 28, 2004
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.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 9, 2004
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’!

grat (433) - ST. Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 1, 2004
Like a scotch ale with belgian yeast. Dark brown head dies off leaving only a lacing behind. Nose is very candylike. Almost too sweet. Dark and caramel on the tongue with a pronounced apple like character. Good brew G-rat

DrGonzo (625) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 21, 2004
On tap. Pours a dark brown color with pillowy tan head. Aroma is spicy and malty, hints of citrus and caramel. Flavor is very balanced, rich malty, hints of scotch, molasses, quick finish. All around well made and enjoyable beer, exactly what you expect for a Belgian take on Scotch ale.
