3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A brown beer with a great head. The aroma is very fruity and alcoholic with notes of smoked malt. The flavor is very sweet - too sweet for my liking - with a great palate, but no hops to compensate the sweetness. The flavor contains notes of smoked malt, wood and fruits. A fine beer - with great memories.

UPDATED: NOV 17, 2011 Slightly off-white head, rather good lace. Deep brown, clear body. Aroma of flowers, hops, spice and some strong malts (contrary to what one would expect perhaps). Bitter flavour.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A red brown body with a lively tan head that quickly faded. Aroma of caramel, raisan and brown sugar. Flavour is sweet, but rather acidic and the high alcohol is quite apparent. Not as full as the nose would want you to beleive. Finish is creamy but acidic. The elf on the bottle is great and the picture in the corner showing the beer in a glass. If there was a category for label this would probably be my favourite so far.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep brown colour, thin head. Fruity (raisin) and alcoholic aroma. The taste is quite complex, with some sweet notes (Raisin, chocolate, caramel). The aftertaste is spicy. A good beer, but not one of my favourite...

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
(750 ml Bottle) Brown, chocolate crud stuck to the inside of the cap, is it still good? We'll soon find out... Pours a medium, white and a cloudy brown-copper body. Head dissipates to a thin lacing. Earthy aroma with hints of alcohol and spice. Strong malt and caramel flavour with a dry and fizzy-bitter finish. Good but I'd prefer having another La Chouffe to this.

This beer poured a dark amber color and formed an off white bubbly head that left some circular lace. Some carbonation present. An aroma of malt and caramel. A flavor of malt and caramel. Some dry elements in the finish. A good beer

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Long lasting tan head with good lacing. brown, earthy looking body. the aroma is also quite earthy with just a hint of malty sweetness peeking out. the mouthfeel is full but the carbonation is really freaking high. i cant believe how much carbonation there is in this beer, for me it takes away from the flavor of this beer. it is too lively on my tongue and i just cant get a good solid taste. what i am getting is a light malt flavor with spicy hop flavoring and a bit of hop bittering at the end of the taste.

Thick head and lacing, nose of rum, raisin, earthy. Tasted with alcfron and another, we did agree there was some cola to it.
