Tap@Ølbaren. Brown with a rudy twist. Beige dissapearing head. Pleasant aroma with notes of sweetness, spices and yeast. Soft and fullbodied with complex balanced taste and a warm aftertaste.

750ml bottle from SAQ out of chalice. pours a murky dark brown that leaves a small, quickly dissipating head. aroma is pretty sweet, with dark fruits and molasses. taste is spicy, bready, lots of darker fruits and yeast, sweet malty finish. very carbonated, feels nice on the palate. a very good beer, my favourite from d’ Achouffe.

Aroma agradable y a la vez complejo. Las notas principales son a esteres frutales, principalmente a uvas, ciruelas, frutas rojas y especias. Ligeramente se perciben aromas a levaduras. En cuanto a apariencia color obscuro con ligeros destellos marrones y una alta turbiedad. Carbonatación media, esmupa abundante pero de baja retención en virtud de su potencia alcohólica y alta sedimentación en el interior del liquido. En boca suave, aterciopelada, dulce y potencia alcoholica. Al paladar es una cerveza compleja igual que en sus aromas. Se percobe suave y ligeramente dulce. Se perciben notas a frutas rojas y quizá algo de especias. En general una muy buena cerveza. A pesar de su fuerza alcohólica no es agresiva al paladar. Su inicio es suave y algo dulce, sin embargo el equilibrio es muy bueno, con un final seco que equilibra el sabor dulce.

aroma: alcohol, caramel, floral, cereal, apparenza: red, clear, minimal head, gusto: medium sweetness, lightly bitter, palato: medium body, slick feel, soft carbonation, long and medium bitter finish nel complesso è una birra che mi è piaciuta molto,non quanto la chouffe blonde ma è comunque ottima. Aroma e sapore dolci e finale di amaro medio.

biermonk (265) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 3, 2004
750ml bottle poured a dark brown with deep red highlights. Aroma was malty with some sweet hints of maybe caramel. Flavor was sweet but not at all cloying; very well balanced. Nice mouthfeel. Initially a very metallic finish but I expect that it will dissapear as the beer warms. Yes, I was correct. Not sure what temp I started at but it was too cold the whole package opens up as the beer approaches room temp.

12HundredBaud (262) - Sausalito, California, USA - MAR 27, 2011
75cl bottle from a bottle retailer. It pours a murky dark amber-brownish liquid with a high and consistent tan head that lasts throughout the beer and leaves a nice lacing. It looks delicious. The aroma is very complex: at first, some smokiness comes to your nose, later followed by some dark fuits, spices, burnt caramel and brown sugar. The flavour is very similar, but less smoky and with a little wood. It is extremely sweet, but not annoying; it blends perfectly with the alcohol, giving a pleasant maltiness with no booze to sense. There is also a little bitterness, which is stronger in the aftertaste, when some grassy hops suddenly appear, along with a new hint of smoke. It is softly carbonated, with a full body and a creamy mouthfeel that leaves all your mouth wanting more. It ends dry. Perfect presentation for a nearly perfect beer! A MUST!
