This was a beautiful deep amber color with a rich citrus aroma. The thyme wasn’t noticable in the taste but the curacao peel really pushed the citrus to the forefront of the palate.

UPDATED: NOV 25, 2005 Deep and cloudy red brown with a good big head. Malt aroma with dried fruits and flowers too. Malty flavour, sweet without being overwhelming, some alcohol/wine notes too.

03.15.05 2003 750ml bottle. Pretty cherry brown with voluminous tan head. Buttery and vanilla aromas envelop my head, some savory spice, no alcohol. Flavors are sweet and light for such a big beer. I’m almost taken back to a great tripel with this beer’s thoughtful tropical flavors, pineapple, mango, guava, but not big fresh fruits, more like slightly cooked fruits in a light pear syrup. Also curacao, toasty coconut, soem toffee. Dark malts carry the way with underlying hints of cellar, burlap, earth, and mild pepper. Wonderful silky texture with plenty of eff. This beer is complex, subtle, powerful, and delicious.

The bottle pours out a mahogany liquid with a quickly dissipating head. The nose is floral and spicy. Flavours of plum and dark fruits with spices. Delicous.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - MAR 10, 2005
Bottle. Large beige head. Dark amber body. Malty nose. taste is alot of sugar and alcohol, sweet, candi sugar, metal, tannins, with a huge tannic bitterness on the back end. Hints of orange, black pepper, and anise. I really don’t know what else to say about this one. It is alittle too sweet and very complex.

Bug thanks goes out to MUSTANG3 for sharing this baby! Pours a dark brown body, with a thin beige head atop. Slight alcohol aroma, cognac?? Vinous, prunes and pears, roasted malts and sugars. Taste is malty, floral, fruity (pears and prunes), sweet too. Finish is mildly alcohol, with a sweet prune aftertaste. Nice! Thanks kevin!

Kevin (2069) - New Mexico, USA - MAR 9, 2005
pours deep brown with an extremely large light tan head. doughy raisin nose with some kind of nutmeg like spice. sweet and thick with flavors. i can detect banana bread, peppery yeast, and cloves, plus an odd grapefruity note in the finish. not hop grapefruit, but something different. enjoyable overall.

I don’t know why it is, but I just don’t see the big whoop regarding the Chouffe beers. This one was better than most. I’m rating one I had a couple years back and have one on hand here, a ’97. But, I don’t know why I’m keeping it. Maybe hoping that age will turn silver into gold. Doubt it tho. Now you take the Chouffe Coffee Liquer and mmmmm, mmm!
