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.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

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!

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...
