33cl bottle @ home from bier-winkel.com. Body is clear to hazy, ruby-brown, fizzy, tiny particles, Head is medium, rocky, fizzy, mostly lasting, good lacing. Nose is dried fruits, Aroma is cherry bubble gum, caramel, molasses, spice, dark fruits. Taste is medium sweet, light bitter, light sour. Finish is medium lasting fruity sweet-sour, light roasty bitter, alcohol warmth. Medium to full body, sticky texture, lively carbonation. Not a tipical brown beer, sourness is not disturbing but makes it Interesting, easy dessert beer.

Inoven (14) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - JAN 3, 2015
Een oude fles Mc Chouffe uit de kelder gehaald (T.h.t. apr. 2012). Diep donkerbruin met ondanks de leeftijd een stevige schuimlaag. De caramel komt in de geur en smaak goed naar boven. De chocolade is in de verte ook te herkennen. De smaak blijft lang hangen. Heerlijk bier voor een rustige winteravond.

PalCabral (143) - SWEDEN - JAN 1, 2015
Bottle from Jumbo, Aveiro, Portugal. Pours "dirty" brown with a head that quickly disipates and leave only a few islands of scum on the surface. Not a looker. Aroma is mainly sweet from yeast and the tastes follow suit, with some vague roasted notes. For being a Bruin/Brune this is a very plain tasting beer, mainly influenced by the yeast.

Moolesen (319) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 27, 2014
Bottle 75cl. Brown with a beige head. Aroma’s of banana, dried fruit and some malty tones. Nice taste where some sweetness in form of dried fruits and malt are mostly dominant. Hints of spices. Quite high carbonized. Medium length.

Pours a deep brown color with a lasting tan head. The smell is fruity, yeast, brown sugar. The taste is as it smells with a dry hoppy ending. Light/ medium in body with tight carbonation.

ESPh (99) - Branchburg, New Jersey, USA - DEC 19, 2014
Picked up a four pack based on the rating. Pours reddish brown with a white head. Feint aroma of malt, cherry, yeast. Taste has malt, dried dark cherry, maybe a little plum with crisp carbonation. Not terrible but definitely overrated.

Colour is between red en light brown. Bittersweet taste with some plum and raisin details. Good beer, but not d’Achouffes greatest work though.
