On tap at Cheeky Monk. Pour is golden straw; perfectly clear with a small white head and great lacing. Clove, light banana, fruity esters, biscuit, straw, light corn, and grass in the aroma. Taste is biscuit and bread, with light fruity notes through the middle, ending somewhat sweet and spicy. Light body with high carbonation. Pretty good Belgian, but I was expecting a more pronounced flavor profile, still highly drinkable for such high ABV.

Mc Chouffe was decent but certainly not my favourite brune. The alcoholic after-burn/hit is stronger than expected from its 8%. This was OK but I wouldn’t get it again. Shared bottle at Plonk.

330ml bottle from Appellation Wines, cheers Ash! Pours clear dark brown, thin tan head. Aromas of brown sugar, yeast, light herbal notes. Taste is sweet and boozy, but avoids being cloying. Sweet finish. Nice.

Een bier met een heel bijzondere smaak, maar spijtig genoeg was het absoluut mijn ding niet

Pours a dark brown body with a medium head. Aroma of malt and yeast. Nice malty taste with a finish of metal? ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Si presenta con un colore marrone scuro con un cappello di schiuma abbastanza persistente, l’ho preferita rispetto alla sua controparte chiara, davvero buona

UXO (166) - CANADA - JUL 29, 2014
Pours cola brown with a fat finger of medium dense tan head diminishing gradually to a thin cap and moderate lacing. Nose is dark stone fruit, raisins, dark malt, brown sugar. Taste leads out with dark malt, giving way to medium bitterness, with peppery spiciness. Mouth feel is surprisingly light, with sustained lively carbonation and mild warming. Very similar to the La Chouffe in hop character, body, and carbonation, with the major difference being the dark malt, as opposed to the light malt of the La Chouffe. These two beers are pretty much identical otherwise, with the fundamental difference being the choice between light and dark malt.

Parfums typiques des brunes belges. Celle ci est douce et chaleureuse plutôt agréable. Mais on est en terrain bien connu, la dégustation est agréable mais aucune originalité ne la rendra mémorable.
