Little hazy, red/brown colour liquid, small head which leaves nice lacing on the glass. Th aroma was very disappoiting, small hints of fruits and caramel. In taste very sweet, dark fruits, caramel and malt. Medium carbonation, medium body. I was very disappointed with this beer.

Mc Chouffe was decent but certainly not my favourite brune. The alcoholic after-burn/hit is stronger than expected from its 8%. This was OK but I wouldn’t get it again. Shared bottle at Plonk.

330ml bottle from Appellation Wines, cheers Ash! Pours clear dark brown, thin tan head. Aromas of brown sugar, yeast, light herbal notes. Taste is sweet and boozy, but avoids being cloying. Sweet finish. Nice.

Een bier met een heel bijzondere smaak, maar spijtig genoeg was het absoluut mijn ding niet

Pours a dark brown body with a medium head. Aroma of malt and yeast. Nice malty taste with a finish of metal? ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Si presenta con un colore marrone scuro con un cappello di schiuma abbastanza persistente, l’ho preferita rispetto alla sua controparte chiara, davvero buona

UXO (164) - CANADA - JUL 29, 2014
Pours cola brown with a fat finger of medium dense tan head diminishing gradually to a thin cap and moderate lacing. Nose is dark stone fruit, raisins, dark malt, brown sugar. Taste leads out with dark malt, giving way to medium bitterness, with peppery spiciness. Mouth feel is surprisingly light, with sustained lively carbonation and mild warming. Very similar to the La Chouffe in hop character, body, and carbonation, with the major difference being the dark malt, as opposed to the light malt of the La Chouffe. These two beers are pretty much identical otherwise, with the fundamental difference being the choice between light and dark malt.

Parfums typiques des brunes belges. Celle ci est douce et chaleureuse plutôt agréable. Mais on est en terrain bien connu, la dégustation est agréable mais aucune originalité ne la rendra mémorable.
