vanvenlo (1272) - 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.

GregClow (2903) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 19, 2004
Slightly cloudy ruby-brown colour with a moderate tan head. Malty, spicey aroma. Flavours of caramel malt & brown sugar with a slightly medicinal tang and a warm finish. Thanks to jercraigs.

Sammy (8762) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 18, 2004
Ruby red colour and different spice than the regular La Chouffe from this Brasserie. Appearance and taste of a top Belgium, from aging. Taste more from malt and carmel sweetness, corriander and pepper, but then a Good hop kick aftertaste. Acidity just demands food. Thanks Jercraigs.

jercraigs (7934) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 18, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 19, 2004 Dark ruby brown body with a healthy off white head. Aroma is either muted or my nose is malfunctioning. Bit of sweet malt. Nice mouthfeel, lots of sweet maltiness and a touch of yeast in the flavour. Just a touch of alcohol in the finish. Very nice beer but not mindblowing.

hopdog (9018) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 12, 2004
Poured a medium brown with a huge brown head. Tiny particles. Malty with spicy aroma. Sweet tasting. Tastes of caramel, brown sugar and spices. The tastes and aroma came out as the beer warmed up.

Clear, cherry reddish appearance, good head formation. Malty, wody, biscuity aroma. Mild biscuity palate, dry, moderately spiced, moderate fruitiness. Slight hoppy bite towards the end.
