beautiful full foamy head, luscious thick dark chocolate color, but the flavor was somewhat to vinous for me as was the aroma. very warming in the ole tummy, but one more glass of this and i’d have a sore head for sure. shoots home to me yet again that i am not a huge fan of most high alchohol brews. i seem to recall liking the la chouffe more...i’ll have to check to see if i rated that one and see what score i gave it.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Murkey brown with a nice froathy head. Heavy fruit aroma fills the nostrils nicely (on a side note ive got a cold and the aroma feels good on my soar throat). More alcoholic flavor than the other scotch ale that I had. Still a pretty earthy flavor. Palate lingers nicely. Grab one.

One of my favourites. Aromas of malts,yeast,fruits and spicies. Taste is sweet, malty and yeasty with fruits (plum,orange), raisins and sugar. Long duration aftertaste medium sweet and fruity. Bites of alcohol.

11.2 oz bottle served in a Westmalle chalice. Malty nose. Clear rich brown color with a short but thick, fine bubbled, never-ending head. Creamy mouthfeel, a little carbonation sting. Malt dominates the flavor. There’s a tiny bit of sharp edge in the nose & flavor.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very malty, roasty and nutty. Not as complex and fruity as many Dubbels-Brown ales, but smooth, a scotch ale with a Belgian interpretation, with slight spicy notes, including vanilla and cinnamon., and a rather dry finish for the sweetness it carries.
