Koelschtrinker (10962) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 11, 2011
Getrunken beim 1. BTO-Treffen und ergänzt durch einen Neutest am 19.10.2008: Sehr prickelndes Bier, der Alkohol ist gschickt hinter Aromen verborgen. Im weiteren Verlauf dezent würzig, dabei im Nachgeschmack noch aromatischer werdend. Ergänzungen 2008: Ds Bier ist leider nicht so komplex wie das La Chouffe, bietet aber trotzdem eien ausreichende Anzahl an Aromen. Die Malzigkeit ist durchlässrig für andere Aromen, so kommt der leichte Hopfen durchaus zum Tragen. Im Abgang stark Malzig-würzig. Test vom 30.12.2006, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,11,11,10,12,11 - 11,00

imdownthepub (10579) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2010
Bottled, 750ml from Hopduvel Warehouse, Ghent. Dark amber to chestnut with white head. Some darker roasted malts lead the way in a relatively simple but pleasing beer. A little woodiness in the malt with just a touch of smokiness, there appears to be some Belgian yeasty spicing, quite possibly the effect of the yeast and a little greenish hop, but in general this is about the maltiness. The strength doesn’t really show through. Very nice.

bierkoning (10500) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - NOV 16, 2003
UPDATED: DEC 1, 2010 Chouffe version: Malt and chocolate aroma. Sweetish, malty, whisky and chocolate flavor. Some alcohol. This beer is reasonably well hopped, but that is hidden by the velvety sweetness. Very likeable beer, tasty and powerful. 8 3 8 4 15 = 3.8 moortgat version, small bottle. Dark brown color. Chocotoff and butter in the aroma. Medium to full bodied. Alcoholic. malty sweet flavor with caramelly notes. Pleasant and very drinkable, but also flat and onedimensional. 7 3 7 3 12 = 3.2

Botella. Pours a hazy deep amber colour with a huge well lasting off-white head leaving a good lacing. Aroma of sweet well toasted malt, yeast, caramel and some sweet fruitiness. Good but bit thin mouthfeel. The flavour has a good well toasted maltiness, caramel, yeast, some dark fruits, mild bitter hoppiness and alcohol. The finish is sweet with a good maltiness and some yeast.
