Great winter beer, not too sweet and not to spiced (thyme and curacao). A classic.

Scauca (490) - Lovere, ITALY - NOV 6, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 3, 2008 2003 Bottle, lovely cellared. Dark brown with a big not that lasting creamy coffee head. It starts quite slow, from obviously cocoa, coffee, and dried fruits, through banana and vanilla, to a sensual warming spicy vinous and a luxury cherry in alcohol. Full silky bodied, just a bit too alcohol for me. No trace of hoppiness but well balanced. Nice indeed.

mspindler (489) - Alta Loma, California, USA - APR 23, 2010
Pours a hazy rusty brown with a thin off white head. Aroma is dark, overripe fruits, spices and herbs. Flavor is more dark dried fruits and some caramel with spicy undertones. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation.

TheHulk (486) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 11, 2010
Pretty yeasty aroma, heavy and moist. Dark brown, not too solid though, can see some light through it, not much going on for head/lacing, this one is about a year before due date. Nice biscuit malt flavour, sweet and foamy, a bit too sweet? Fades out nicely, last for a while, % is noticable. Pretty nice, like a double or a triple, most expensive of chouffe’s, regular is the best one.

Enjoyable winterbeer from La Chouffe this N’ice Chouffe. Has a dark look and taste and is overall heavy (also on the alcohol).

PeatyPete (482) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 8, 2014
Amber coloured beer with a quickly vanishing head. Aroma of sweet malt and dark fruit. Taste slightly sweet, slightly burned malt and well balanced.

dexcansino (481) - Andalucía, SPAIN - DEC 8, 2012
Cerveza color marrón oscuro y cristalino. La espuma desaparece rápidamente. Alta graduación que no se percibe en el sabor. Sabor a frutas maduras, castaña y miel de caña. Mejor a medida que se va poniendo a temperatura ambiente.

amx1970390 (480) - Southampton, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 21, 2002
UPDATED: MAR 27, 2003 Dark raisen in color, creamy malt head. Smells of wine and sweet prunes. Tastes peppry, with notes of leather and fruit. Finishes clean with little after taste. Re-Rate: 03/27/2003, 1999 edition. Large creamy head, dusty malt aroma. Brown / burgundy in color. Much more mellow than I remember. Still quite good with a dark fruit and pepper taste. Not to sweet like some barley wines.

Gunshy (479) - Ohio, USA - JAN 26, 2003
This beer poured a very dark amber color and formed a foamy light tan head that left circular lace. A good deal of carbonation is present. An aroma of malt, caramel and raisins. A flavor of malt, toffee and raisins with hint of other spices. A finish that is a touch bitter and has the warming aspect of the alcohol.
