A nice growler Mc Chouffe compliments of my favorite Joe Canals in West Deptford, NJ. Nice amber hue with a slight head. Nice honey like aroma. Nice crisp malty taste with a nice bite. Great beer highly recommended.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Spicy and heavily apple-like, this Scotch ale’s aroma belies a sweetness with strong hints of clove, cinnamon, and nutmeg with a satisfyingly frothy and creamy head.
The flavor reflects a great deal of the aroma but with a more prevalent pear and nut flavor finishing into a quick, somewhat elusive finish.
As with many Belgian ales, this would make a fine dessert beer to be served along side ice cream or a particularly creamy cheese.

Another fantastic chouffe product. Nice roasted brown malts, solid belgian yeast, slightly fruity with a nice amount of spices upfront. very smooth with a little sweetness. Lovely balance. One of my favourites.

Draft at Max’s. Pours a dark brown, no head, a lot of lacing. It is a little too sweet, with the aroma and taste of pear and grape.

Straight away you know you’re drinking a Belgium ale of some description. I would have said this was a Belguim strong ale over a scotish. Malty, oak flavours. Dark red, even black in colour. Caramal, toffy not over the top. Interesting beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear dark ruby with a brownish tint and a small tan head. It has a gentle aroma that smells fruity (ripe cherry & apricot) and floral with a touch of spice, cinnamon and nutmeg. Sharp carbonation on the palate at first. The flavor is woody peaty malt with a muted toasty hazelnut/almond finish. Its almost watery on the finish. Maybe this one’s a bit old. Will try again

I really like it, not at the level of the N’ice but it is good smooth tasting Strong Ale. I always think a little more ABV doesn’t hurt, so this one brings it down a little bit for me at 8%. Great beer, I love it.
