Grovlam (4170) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 21, 2007
Bottle. Huge fizzy beige head that lasted for a very long time. Excellent display of lacework. Somewhat clear and sparkling body with a mahogany color. Huge spicy and fruity notes. Cinnamon, caramel, mix of dark fruit, pepper like notes, almost soy sauce like, yeast. I just have that Christmas feel to it. Full bodied with an average carbonation and hint of alcoholic texture. Flavor was moderated sweet with light notes of bitterness. Finish was spicy sweet and somewhat liquorish lingering. Excellent Christmas beer.

Sammy (9815) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 16, 2007
The king of Chouffe. Light head on dark orange colour. Medium mouthfeel. Lace, some yeast, sugar. This is a controlled orange taste and spice beverage, worthy of the sip. Yes there could be thyme. 2006.

french tickler (649) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 14, 2007
Dark brown poor with a reddish hue. Nice frothy thick beige head. Aromas of sweet caramel, typical chouffe yeast, curacao and very herbal scents. Very "natural" beer. Very herbal bitterness... far from aggressive, very mellow. Very balanced mouthfeel, creamy, just enough sweetness to top it all off. Alcohol is present. Nice caramel like aftertaste with a dry finish. Very unique and natural, i love it!

Svesse (7033) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAY 5, 2007
(Bottle) This one seemed to be in a hurry, upon opening the foam exploded and parts of the beer ended up on my kitchen floor. Seriously annoying! So what about the beer that didn’t run away? Dark reddish brown colour with huge, but rather brief, beige head, leaving lots of lacing. Huge, fruity nose with dark fruit, orange, banana and a hint of ginger. Rather vinous. Malty, fruity, vinous taste with notes of chocolate, orange, yeast and herbs (spiced with thyme and curacao). Malty sweetness. Full body, smooth mouthfeel. Fiery and warming. Moderate hops, overshadowed by dark fruit, malt and herbs. Very nice beer (but beware when you open the bottle).

voota (765) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 3, 2007
Pours dark clear brown with a crystalline tan head. Large chunks of lace are left on the side of the glass as the head settles. Aroma of ripe plum, toffee, heavy rum and spicy hops. The body shows alcohol and sweetness very strongly. Flavours of toffee, salt, rum, prunes and spicy hops. Warming finish. Perhaps a little too sweet and cloying overall, but enjoyable nonetheless.

afterglow (1047) - Florida, USA - APR 29, 2007
750ml bottle. Pours a slightly hazy dark brown with amber highlights and a large long lasting light tan head that leaves good lacing. Aroma of raisins, plums, caramel, thyme, cherries, and corriander. Taste is slightly sweet and spicy with notes of raisins, plums, caramel, cherries, and spices with a mild hop bitterness. Full mouthfeel with good carbonation. Another wonderfull beer from d’Achouffe.

iep (230) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - APR 21, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 21, 2007 Dark ruby/chestnut red with a small & coarse-bubbled head. Spicy sweet aroma, with blackcurrant, cherry, plum, curacao, cinnamon, thyme, raisins, vanilla, sugar & alcohol. Taste was full & rounded, again very spicy and sweet - caramel, cherry, honey, cinnamon, dark sugar, molasses, alcohol and much more. A huge malt-profile. Slight hoppiness in the finish but the emphasis is definitely on the malt. Mouthfeel was quite thick, not much carbonation. Very nice, indeed.

slang (654) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - APR 9, 2007
UPDATED: APR 10, 2007 2006; 750 bottle. Dark & spicy. Murky brown. Complex w/ layers. Alcohol is hidden yet tongue numbing. An awesome beer, & a must try, again.
