William (202) - Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - APR 23, 2002
Had this one at the brewery, and was not impressed, had expected more. It is not a very complex beer, and it a little too sweet for my taste.

Great foamy head. Chocolate brown. Spicy, peppery. Noticeable alcohol taste, not a problem. Molasses and fruity malt, hops are gentle. I love dAchouffe and their line of friendly, sweet, clean, spicy and complex beers. This one fits right in. I need to try aging some of this.

MADpalace (201) - Budel, NETHERLANDS - OCT 18, 2011
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2014 Dark brown color, almost black with slight red shine. Great smell of christmas, fruit and marcepan. Mild taste of abbey beer with light sweetness and stronger aftertaste.

unibrouefan (200) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 6, 2006
Mondial de la Bière de Montréal; This is one of the best Scotch Ale I ever drank. Nice brown color with foamy head. Taste of caramel and just the good tint of spice.

birraiolo (198) - ITALY - JUL 30, 2013
Bottiglia da 33cl. Color ambrato molto scuro con riflessi prugna, si presenta con un buon cappello di schiuma fine color nocciola di buona persistenza. Al naso sentori di malto e frutta matura che si ripetono al palato.

Afgelopen week gedronken, want het was toch net herfst. Heerlijk zacht donker bier, wat makkelijk weg drinkt.

igel (196) - New Mexico, USA - SEP 1, 2004
Appearance: dark red/amber color, a nice full rocky, tan head--lively and effervescent. Good head retention and a resilient lace. Aroma: spicy, cloves, and alcohol. The taste is complex: creamy and somewhat sweet, but not overpowering. The taste seems to change and develop more character in the middle and toward the finish. Very drinkable beer.

gbzia (195) - Cedar Knolls, New Jersey, USA - AUG 28, 2002
Like it’s brother LaChouffe, a great intro to Belgian dark ales. Lots of flavor, malts and spice. Does age well so you don’t have to drink the whole case in one day!
