Balazs (787) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUL 4, 2010
0.75L bottle form Csakajosor.hu. Poured dark brown-amber with a large tan, lacing head. Dark fruits, roasted malts, brown sugar, grape, apple in the aroma. Just the right amount of sweetness in a dense, oily body. Strong on the palate, but not overwhelming. This will certainly warm you up on a cold day! Excellent brew.

BierBauch (784) - Cape Coral Waterfront Wonderland, Florida, USA - JAN 10, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 27, 2005 Limited Edition 2003 75cl capped bottle Poured a cloudy dark amber with a tight tan head. Spicy aroma with notes of orange, berries and candy sugar. Some light hops also detected. This smells like a quality brew. Head settles down, leaves scattered lacing. Mouthfeel is smooth, a medium body that has a crisp finish. This may be the best Belgian winter seasonal I’ve had yet. Flavor is not complex yet very drinkable and enjoyable. Alcohol not detected in flavor or aroma. A malty delight with flavors of sweet malt, candy sugar, citrus and belgian yeast. Thyme comes through in aroma as the warming process continues. This is an excellent winter ale, one to try if you haven’t yet.

beervana (781) - Libertyville, Illinois, USA - DEC 20, 2005
Sampled at a 2005 Christmas and Winter beer tasting at Delilah’s, Chicago, IL. 2004 vintage. Clear light brown strong Belgian ale having a long-lasting large white head with good lacing. No discernable carbonation. Nice sweet malt and spicy aroma. Medium bodied that starts with light sweet malt, fruity and spicy flavors. Finishes dry with light malt aftertaste. Notable alcohol warmth. This is a very good drinkable winter brew.

dnoaksson (781) - , SWEDEN - JAN 22, 2011
Ett orangeri av dofter och aromer, som flätas upp och in i varandra, i ett flöde utan ände. N’lice Chouffe har mycket att erbjuda, en myckenhet av kulinarisk flärd och grannlåt. Kanske är det just det som gör att man går vilse och förlorar sikten. Den känns desorganiserad och i behov av uppstramning - tukt och omvård.

Tripplebrew (778) - Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA - DEC 13, 2009
Pours a dark chocolate amber, not hazy with a thick dirt-colored head. Aroma is very clean, notes of nuts (almond and hazelnut), some vanilla and hints of caramel/candi sugar. Flavor is very nutty with earthy notes mixed with raisin and vanilla. Definite notes of candi sugar however it is more of an accent than taking over the flavor. subtle notes of orange zest. Body is creamy yet mixed with high carbonation. A very great, well-balanced winter ale.

Rando7 (777) - Iowa, USA - AUG 6, 2010
2007 vintage. Wow, very nice (no pun intended) beer. Bottle pout to Trappist glass gives dark brown color with brief beige head. Aroma dark fruits. Taste extremely well balanced with dark fruits, spices, malts, tartness, yeasts Alcohol present but not overpowering. Flavors come and go threatening to become unpleasant but never reaching that point. palate medium, carbonated. Finish long with dark fruits. Really liked this one, great balance of pleasing flavors.

Franckg (777) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 13, 2015
Robe brune foncée tirant sur l’acajou. Col de mousse beige léger qui s’estompe rapidement. Arômes de mélasse, bois sec, cassonade, pruneaux, mûres confites. En bouche, baies foncées, cassonade, houblons légèrement amers, anis. Texture plutôt mince pour ce type de bière. Alcool bien caché par contre. Corps moyen. Une brune foncée sucree juste à point. Pas un chef-d’oeuvre mais accessible.

JasonG (776) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - DEC 15, 2003
Very dark color, with just a touch of head. Aroma is faint, slightly malty and hoppy, but there's not a lot there. Flavor is malty up front, with decent hoppy bitterness in the finish.

From tasting notes. Bottle. Pours dark reddish-brown with a small beige head. Spicy aroma with hints of yeast, caramel and light chocolate. Sweet flavor with strong spice notes, some dark fruit and a hint of chocolate. Alcohol in the finish.
