3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Reddish brown beer, poured clear with a noisy off-white head. Rich malty aroma of semi-dried fruit with booziness to make you cough. Flavour is of a light belgian yeast with prune or date juice but more watery. Mouthfeel is a little thin but overall very good with a refined flavour typical of a high end belgian strong dark ale.

Mc Chouffe is a deep brown amber color with a very nicely pronounced tan head. The aroma is full of fruit with a nice malted base. The flavor has a great malty base with notes of fruit and caramel. The finish is also very nice.

A somewhat rocky maybe more frothy light tan head shrinks quickly on top of this murky red brown ale. Afruity belgian aroma rises from the glass. a little banana and a clove or mulled spice scent. interesting subdued and somewhat earthy approach with a full round presence. hops are assertive and tingly throughout the finish and the high alcohol is well contained.

Liked but didn’t love it. Well balanced but flavors weren’t that intense.

Sweeter than I expected it to be. Very nice malty character throughout the beer with some hops in it but not much. Spicy on the palate with plenty of alcohol present. Good beer and one I am going to keep an eye out for.

75cL bottle, from old notes. Pours a deep hazy brown with thick tan foam, great retention and lacing. Big malty aroma, noticeable coriander. Flavor is big on the malt, very little hop flavor and a bit too much coriander for me. Mouthfeel is almost perfect.
