larsga (6893) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 31, 2007
Medium coarseish beige lasting head. Deep dark translucent red body with vigourous carbonation. Fruity yeasty bready licorice and spice aroma. Dry sharpish licorice and fruit taste with spicy peppery notes. Considerable alcohol heat as well as carbonation in the mouth. Dry wooden spicy alcoholic licorice aftertaste. Some chocolate, too. Surprisingly light in body and taste. Very nice! (0.75l bottle, a Christmas gift from hcalsos.)

One year old 750ml bottle. Hazy orange/copper with a large head. Aroma of brown sugar, yeast, caramel, and raisins. A bit of warmth shines through the sweet taste. Some spiciness, also. Sticky, sticky texture. Fairly nice in a reasonable serving size.

beerbill (3575) - Laurel, New York, USA - DEC 28, 2007
750 ml bottle. Christmas 2006. Pours a clear, dark amber with a moderate off-white head that lasted through mid-glass and left no lacing. Pleasant aroma of malt and just a hint of spice. More flavorful than the aroma suggests with thyme, citrus and yeast present with a strong malt backbone. The alcohol was very well hidden. Enjoyable.

WallyWalrus (205) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 25, 2007
750ml bottle. Pours a cloudy dark amber with a nicely laced off-white head. Aroma is rich, with a backbone of sweet caramel alongside a hoppy citrus bite, dark fruit, autumnal spices, and some roasted malt. Taste is rich and medium-bodied with an initially sweet flavor of caramel, roasted malt, and coffee giving way to a lingering finish of hops, spice, and a bite of brown liquor. An excellent cold-weather brew and another winner from Chouffe.

Elizavyeta (110) - Minnesota, USA - DEC 25, 2007
Frothy head with the consistency of whipped egg whites and perfect brown-red hue. The flavor has strong notes of spice (cinnamon, cumin, ginger, and clove) with a floral presence not unlike rose. The finish is simple and does not linger particularly long on the palate. Pair with a hearty, buttery washed rind cheese like Pere Joseph or possibly French munster.

bottle from 2006. pours copper with fluffy beige head. Spicy nose with malty undertones. Flavor follows suite with hints of citrus, tyme, malts, caramel, and yeast. alcohol is well masked. Decent, but not as good as the rest of the chouff line.
