Pours with lively carbonation. A murky brown color with a tan effervescent head. Weet raisin and spicey smell. Flavor is slightly sweet with dark fruit and raisins coming to the top. Some bitterness and alcohol in the end. Aftertaste stays with you awhile as you notice some dark candi sugar. Nice warm sensation in the throat when all is said and done. N’Ice.

Lots of alcohol is the first thing i noticed. Kinda leaves you in the finish feelin kinda like you took some liquor on the rocks. Other than that, it is matly sweet and yeasty. Honestly not really feelin this one. Just not really balanced and drinkable.

ChillCoat (1029) - Concord, California, USA - MAR 17, 2006
Bottled. Deep Brown color with a reddish hue. Big tan head. The aroma reminds me of a Whole Foods store, kindda a mix of teas and spices and produce and incense. Strange spicy flavor mixed with some sweet dark fruits. A little hot. Very bubbly.

UPDATED: JUN 4, 2006 Draft. Pours a dark brownish amber with a full off white head. The aroma is full of sweet spices, citrus. The flavor was smooth and sweet with a nice alcohol finish that lingered on the palate. A very good strong ale, and a favorite of the dAchouffe line for me.

Pours deep amber with a large white head that sticks around. Aroma of citrus, belgian style spices, alcohol, orange peel. Flavor is fruity, alcohol is present ( not so smooth ) spicey, citrusy, and carbonated. Good body, good brew.

"Poured a cloudy broan amazing fluffy long lasting lacing head. Aroma was spices and dark fruit. Flavor was candy sugar spices dark fruits. The alcohol wasn’t hidden in this at all. "

On tap at The Kulminator, Antwerp. First beer here on the Friday (came back the following day) and whilst I was wading through the beer list, I had a draught beer just to keep me going. Deep copper/amber colour with lasting beige head. Choc/coffee and dark fruit aroma. But also quite fresh. Some spice and heat in mouth, slightly raisiny on end. Slight rubber on finish too.

Light brown color with a huge off-white head that lasts and lasts. Excellent lacing throughout. Hazy body with small floaties. Moderately malty aroma with light bread notes along with apple and allspice notes. Moderately sweet flavor from start to finish with more hints of apple and spice. Full bodied with fairly soft carbonation. Delicious.
