Bottle. Clear dark brown color, medium nice beige head. Dried berries, brown malt and some yeast and cloves, in the nose. Just lightly sweet, lightly, balanced low bitter, the alcohol is nevertheless too present. Medium to thin mouthfeel with a fresh carbonation. Aftertaste has some nice malty tones, cloves, dried berries. Very nice strong beer, better than many Bockbiers I´ve drank. The, not very low, alcohol is skillfully covered. A thin mouthfeel, with a fresh carbonation and low sweetness is making this a deadly good beer.

Brune, légère mousse s’effaçant très vite. Nez gourmand, gateau, fruits rouges, alcool, vin rouge. Bouche liqueur, alcool, raisin, caramel, épices, poivre. Forte, assez complexe, proche d’une qudruple, avec le côté épicé d’une bière de noël : bien.

Een smaakvolle quadrupel. Duidelijk aanwezig: specerijen en kruiden. Zoetig, maar lichte bitter. Mooie schuimkop.

Volle smaak met caramel en lichtzoete toetsen,maar iets te zoet naar mijn smaak. Schuimkraag niet echt volledig. Chouffe blijft best voor blonde bieren.

baraciisch (2215) - California, USA - FEB 19, 2015
Rated from beer log from 2009 Belgian Trip.... Deep brown caramel color, minimal head, sweet and almost spicy aroma... Flavor is not terribly sweet but alcohol is not terribly apparent... Can definitely appreciate some spices, dark fruits... Very nice beer

Muddy, hazy brown with lasting thin beige head. Aroma of dried fruit, some light molasses sweetness. Taste is more dried fruit, some pepper, coriander, general spiciness. Warmth comes at the finish.

N'Ice Chouffe 33 cl. uitgeschonken in Chouffe bierglas. Diepe donkerbruine kleur, met prachtige beige, hoge schuimkraag die heel stabiel is. De geur is Belgische gist en winterspecerijen. De smaak is licht zoet en vol met kruidige smaken. De aangegeven ingrediënten proef je goed terug, tijm en curaçao. Gedroogd fruit, rozijnen, vijgen, kruidnagel, tijm, sinaasappelschillen. Verder tonen van dennenhout, nootmuskaat, chocolade, zwarte peper en licht bittere hop. De alcohol van 10% is heel goed verborgen. De afdronk is lang, kruidig, en zacht bitter van de hop. Een van de betere Belgische winterbieren, hoge kwaliteit zoals verwacht van Brasserie D'Achouffe. Een winterwarmer die geïnspireerd is op kruiden en specerijen.

Got this as a Valentine’s Day present from my wife. Very light on the hops. Sour, but reasonably well-balanced for 10%.

Alpha10 (402) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 13, 2015
2015/02/13 - Pours a hazy, brown-amber colour with a foamy, khaki head that dissipates quickly. No lacing. Aroma is rather sweet; toffee, spices, dates, yeast, mild banana and some sour tones. Taste is yeast, mild banana, toffee, spices and a hint of rum. Has I hint of sour to it. Mouthfeel is thin, with biting carbonation and a sweet, warming finish. Pretty good, but nothing spectacular. Bottle @ home. Cloudy brown with low beige head, some sediments in the bottle’s bottom. Sweet caramel aroma, yeasty, faint banana notes, toffee. Too sweet flavor, caramel, date honey, yeasty, spicy. Lively carbonation, full body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
