Mooie donkerbruine kleur met weinig beige schuim. Ruikt moutig, gebrand, wijn. Smaakt prima, zoetig, gebrand.

Deep brown with a tan head. Light smell of oats and slightly sweet aroma. Notes of caramel and a sweet body to the taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

RafeAU (113) - Kingston, AUSTRALIA - AUG 16, 2014
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.

MOboy (505) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - JUL 24, 2002
too young. Seems rather light and unorganized. Left me feeling somewhat empty in the end. I have another bottle for the cellar. I’ll re-rate in 2005

Suttree (5142) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 15, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2004 Served too cold, but thats my own damn fault - Cloudy brown, with a thick, sand colored head. Freshly mowed grass and brown sugar on the nose. Malty sweet at start, and then some peppary hops. Long, dry finish.

heykevin (1276) - Decorah, Iowa, USA - JUN 25, 2003
Tap, Falling Rock Tap House, Denver. Light sweet liquorice aroma. Dark sweet malt flavor. Strong liquorice flavor. Off dry, slightly astringent finish. Straightforward.

VA Homebrewer (525) - Portsmouth, Virginia, USA - JUL 7, 2003
Deep brown, fairly clear with a medium head. Deeply malty, underwhelming aroma. No apparent alcohol aromas or flavors. Caramel, brown sugar and some oaky notes. A little thin with a short lived finish. Just on the cusp of acheiving greatness.

bierkoning (10201) - 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

envane (567) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 6, 2004
Smells of chocolate. Chocolate/earthy/malty flavor, bitter finish. People, although its the Belgian version of a scotch ale, its a belgian ale through and through.
