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!

Draft: Dark, reddish to purplish brown, nice tan head, wicked aroma... deep ripe dark fruits, plum, concord grape, some spice, flavors are some candy sugar, wood, and potent fruits, the aforementioned grape and plum, finish is pleasant, mildly bitter and drying. EXCELLENT

lamas (1457) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 18, 2005
750 ml bottle. 2004 edition. Pour is an iced tea brown with HUGE effervescent tan head. Aroma is fruity, spicy, hoppy and yeasty. Taste starts off yeasty and spicy but is quickly overwhelmed by a pretty strong kick of warming alcohol, sugar and wood. Nicely bitter hoppiness at the end too. Tastes a bit like a thin barley wine.

Sweet and spicy in the mouth with corriander and cinnamon apparent and a gentle distant hoppiness. Slightly sweet and syrupy aftertaste with a lingering roasted note.
