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.

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!

Nicko (191) - Ashfield, AUSTRALIA - NOV 21, 2006
Consumed with exzematic and blue cheese, a good combination. Full bodied, very sweet and smokey.

dreamboat (186) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAR 9, 2005
Very dark brown to black, with a big white head which lasts very well. Aroma of chocolate and horseblanket. Smokey, sweet medicinal flavour.

I was let down by this one. This is the 2nd chouffe beer I’ve rated and I loved the first one (doublen IPA). This one didn’t seem right to me. Poured a nice brown, with a fluffy head. So carbonated it sounded like you had just poured a Coke into a glass though. Taste was metallic with too little malt, and almost no hops. And to think I put the Doublen IPA back to get this one...
