Numenor (871) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - DEC 6, 2005
A good amount of carbonation, with a light floral after-taste. Dark red in color with particulates left in the glass bottom. Minimal aroma, but perhaps a slight floral scent.

Beerhunter111 (5300) - Hasborn, GERMANY - APR 14, 2014
Ins Glas ergießt sich ein dunkelbraunes Bier mit schöner Schaumkrone. Geruch röstmalzig süß, fruchtig, würzig. Geschmack röstmalzig, hefig, fruchtig, dunkle reife Früchte, Karamell.

Jarastlad (5) - Arlon, BELGIUM - APR 5, 2014 does not count
Hoppy and toffee aromas coupled with a dark brown/red color. Malty and slightly fruty taste. Not a very distinctive palate. Very nice beer as all Chouffe are, but not the best one !

aleksander9 (279) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 1, 2014
Pours a deep brown with tan head. Aroma is toffee, roasted malt, brown sugar, bread and spicy belgian yeast. Mouth feel is slick with spritzy carbonation. Aftertaste is toffee, floral hops, some coffee and lasting spicy alcohol. Overall: a good beer. Like the spiciness.

Bottle from BarleyWine, Copenhagen - reddish brown pour with medium tan head. Malty caramel, toffee, fudge, syrupy, brown sugar, dark dried fruit, slight spice. Nice!

Renobob (450) - Besançon, FRANCE - MAR 25, 2014
Bière assez forte, alcool bine présent, trop de houblon à mon goût. Pas la meilleure de cette brasserie.

Bottle from McTapps. Mahogany with a solid tan head. Aroma is brown sugar. Flavour is dark fruit cake, yeasty and spicy with a warm light alco finish.

JeyAre (70) - - MAR 18, 2014
Dark color with plenty of carbonation on top. Smells Belgian but not overwhelming. The taste is quite Belgian too but without being too present. Palate is quite sweet gazzy and neutral on stickiness as a Belgian. Overall regular but nothing else..

På flaska. Mörk bärnstensfärgad. Två fingrarna högt skum. Luktar kola. Smak av söt kola.
