Bottle. Pours hazy brown with a big head, nice lacing on the glass. Aroma - dried fruits, raisins, toffee and yeast. Sweet with dark fruits, chocolate, caramel and yeast notes, bitter alcoholic finish, very complex and balanced flavors. Medium bodied, smooth and sticky on palate. Very good.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 330 ml, bought in a supermarket, apparently it’s everywhere this year. Poured into a tulip glass, ABV 10%
Brown colour on the body, clear, with a tall off-white head. Good density, average retention, light lacing on the glass.
Aroma is nutty, caramel, a little grape like.
Nice taste, the alcohol very well hidden, light fruity, some caramel. Mildly bitter aftertaste.
Medium thin body, average carbonation.
Overall a nice strong ale, but I expected more.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
The beer poured great with a decent reddish/brown hue that passes through some light, an off white head and good lacing on the glass. The beer smells great with a good blend of fruit (raisins, plum, and pear) and a spicey finish that I can’t place, maybe corriander and nutmeg. The taste is outstanding with a strong fruity start, raisins and pear, with a spicey finish, nutmeg and cinnamon almost...defintely interesting. The mouthfeel is decent as the beer is decently carbonated, medium bodied,nd finishes somewhat spicey. Overall, another solid (yet somewhat interesting) offering from Chouffe.

On tap at Coffee District, Delray Beach...pours a dark deep brown color with a small head. Nose is somewhat flat or has subtle notes that I am not appreciating . Taste is smooth, sweet and velvety with a brown sugary taste. Finish is dry and smooth with no residual alcohol . Nice. Quaff Score 7 / 10
