Mc CHOUFFE is an unfiltered brown beer which is refermented both in the bottle and in barrels. Its fruity bouquet conceals a hint of bitterness.

A nice light brown pour with a huge head to it. Aroma of toffee, raisins, and clove. A complex balance hits your mouth with estery flavors, malt, and hops balancing out well. Slightly alcoholic on the tongue and kind of a powerful one to drink by yourself.

Zarrach76 (31) - FRANCE - OCT 16, 2016
Très belle brune cuivrée légèrement trouble avec une mousse beige à bulles larges qui persistent sur quelques millimètres. Nez très porté sur le sucre et le fruit : cassonade, caramel, miel, chocolat au lait, spéculoos, sirop d’érable, raisin, pruneau, pomme, datte, poire, mangue... Mais derrière se cachent les houblons, perceptibles avec une agréable pointe citronnée et l’impression de sentir un bon vin pétillant (Champagne, Clairette, Mousseux...). Belle complexité. En bouche, la carbonatation est faible et les houblons attaquent les premiers avec une bonne astringence. On retrouve ce petit goût de mousseux (raisins fermentés donc) agréable, de cidre (pomme et poire) et de céréales bien torréfiées. Le sucre est assez discret. L’alcool est relativement présent. Le final est clairement sur l’amertume et les pointes d’agrumes. Très bonne bière qui pourrait être plus gourmande et épicée. Bouteille 33cl,V&B Grenoble.

Bierdimpfe (501) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 15, 2016
Thick cloudy copper color, with a red hue, very active, and chunks of floating yeast. Frothy light brown 3 finger head, lasting around 10-15 minutes, with thick legs. Flavors of dark berries, plums, cherries, nuts, cheese, wild yeast, dark grains, wood, herbal spices, faint coffee and chocolate. Highly sugary, with soft sharpness, and bitter herbs. Slick light body with crispy carbonation. Strong but pleasant finish, vinous and dry, lingering sour fruits with a barrel aged feel. Good as an appetizer. Bad freshness, deadly yeast. Decent flavors and a balanced feel. Overall good quality craft. Too much yeast, disgusting huge chunks, maybe a bad bottle?

I fell in love with this beer the moment I tried it. Nice dark appearance. Pedro Ximinez sherry notes on the nose coming through on the palate, alongside biscuity flavours and liquorice. Warming.

En bouteille de 33cl. Bonne brune mais rien de spécial à formuler : belle couleur foncée aux reflets cerise, mousse brunâtre, arômes caramel, fruits et chocolat, goût sympathique avec un arrière-goût prononcé. Chouffe sait ce qu’il fait !
