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.

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.

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.

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.
