Nice solid strong belgian ale. The standard set - hazy dark brown colour, complex fruity and yeasty aroma. Slow sipper however drinkable, I definitely recommend going with 0.33 bottle.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours a beautiful big head that falls into a small persestant head and leaves a strong lacing in it’s path. The color is dark and burgandy-purple, very hard to see through. Smell is sour with dark fruit tones. You can smell the Belgian very nicely. The taste is not overpowering, it’s delightful. It feels like silk in my mouth and leaves a wonderful aftertaste. I really enjoyed this beer.

Rather mild compared to it’s brother beers. While not lacking in any specific areas, is not a stand-out either.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours brown with a head that quickly fades.Smells like yeast, dark fruits, some caramelized malt and a little hops. Not overly powerful.A little sour at first with the dark fruit flavor.There is light carbonation present with each sip. Very smooth in the mouth. Not bad but not my favorite of the style.

750ml bottle. Deep reddish brown colour. Pours a thick and huge fluffy tan head with a lovely lacing. Fruity aroma. Sweet taste, some caramel and malt notes with a dry and fizzy-bitter finish. Perhaps a bit too sweet to my liking since I am not a big fan of scotch ale but from an objective stand-point a very well-made beer.

0.3l for $6 and served in an official Mc Chouffe glass at the Brick Store Pub. It looked black and was topped by a white head as it approached the table. Served up in its "official" glass this beer looked like a fine desert. Go here: www.achouffe.be/newen/produits.php find the Mc Chouffe picture. It looked just like that ("picture is worth a thousand words") and was poured from a tap. Good job!
It had a overriding fruity aroma. Not tropical fruits, but dark fruits. Liquid plum! …With some spices. Oh, man! If you like to eat ripe plums you’ll like this. It is creamy and light on the palate as well. I’ve also had this in a 750ml bottle. Not as good in the bottle, but there was nothing left in that bottle either.

Draft - a dark amber or light brown beer. Very clear. Off-white head, quickly dissapating. Aroma is nutty and sweet, roasty, with chestnuts and pleasant belgian yeast.
