COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Mc CHOUFFE is an unfiltered brown beer which is refermented both in the bottle and in barrels. Its fruity bouquet conceals a hint of bitterness.

UPDATED: OCT 27, 2007 Bottle - Best Before End 2008. Deep brown pour, large light tan head which maintains throughout. Aroma is bready, malty, fruity, Belgian yeast. Wow. This stuff is delicious. Spicy, bready, lots of darker fruits and yeast, sweet malty finish. This has many layers of flavor. It really is a scotch ale/Blegian strong ale. Slight warming from ABV, but barely noticed on the palate. How have I overlooked this for so long? Damn, damn good.

Bottled. Pours brown, medium to large creamy head. Aromas of malt and caramel also dark and dried fruit. Flavors are similar. Overall, was expecting more flavor, alcohol is present but doesn;’t overpower. Decent but not great.

Mjollnir (396) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - FEB 5, 2010
330mL bottle. Pours a hazy brown with a frothy tan head that slowly settles. Subdued aroma of dark fruit, belgian yeast and alcohol. Fairly sweet, some sourness. Medium bodied, average carbonation and fairly creamy on the palate with a light bitter finish.

Blake (396) - Orange, California, USA - JUN 10, 2010
Had from 750ml bottle. Pours dark brown with large tan head that dissipates to a film over time. Aroma is mostly of toffee, malts, sugars, raisins, and yeast. Flavor is very malty, seems more like a dubbel than a scotch ale. A hint of spices, with very sweet, fruity flavors. Finishes slightly sweet with hints of caramel and toffee lingering for a bit. Nothing that special, but a solid beer nonetheless.

ElGaucho56 (394) - USA - SEP 17, 2007
33cl bottle. Pours remarkably similarly to coca-cola, with a clear garnet brown and fizzy, evanescent head. Dark fruits/port-like aroma, some burnt caramel, slight spiciness like a mulled wine. As per "scotch" style, hops are muted at best, showing up in a tinge of bitterness, along with the alcohol in a dry yeast finish. Tasty and quaffable, but nothing mind-blowing

Donkerrood(cola kleur) bier met een mooie droge schuimkraag. Zoete smaak van rozijnen en karamel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I have had this one ageing for a while, and it certainly didn’t disappoint. Felt like I was drinking caramel cake with raisins. Excellent beer!

TerryR (391) - Oswego, Illinois, USA - DEC 30, 2006
Hazy brown/orange with a tan head. Complex aroma - fruity, musty, grainy malts, alcohol and a touch of smoke. Flavor is caramel, malt, with some earthy yeast tones. Pepper hop finish. Very smooth and seamless for such a complex beer. Excellent.

JohnQPublic (387) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - SEP 26, 2008
12oz bottle into chalice. Pours opaque, cloudy dark brown bordering on plum, with a gigantic, pillowy tan head that eventually settles down to a creamy cap of foam. Nose is brown sugar and ripe dark fruit, some spicy yeast, bit of alcohol. Taste is brown sugar, fresh baked dark bread, and spicy yeast, hints of cocoa and licorice, and dark fruit coming out a bit in the finish. Finish is fairly clean, bready, some yeast, bit of alcohol as well. Mouthfeel is decadently creamy, full but still a bit light, carbonation is superbly subtle - soft and creamy with just a bit of bite at the front of the mouth. Delicious, superbly crafted beer.

Stupenda birra, un classicone belga. Le note più caratteristiche sono fruttato, floreale, mieloso e caramello. Un po’ più dolce della sorella La Chouffe.
