3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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
