skweek (13) - College Park, Maryland, USA - JUL 26, 2009
Poured ruby with a thick tan head. Taste was fruity with lots of spice. It was good, but not really my style. Bottle was 2007 vintage, aged roughly a year.

Pours clear, deep, reddish brown color with a long lasting off-white head. The aroma is very spicy and yeasty with hints of herbs, yeast, malts. It has a medium to full body with moderate carbonation and a smooth, creamy mouthfeel. Good flavour, with spices and yeast.

I’ve enjoyed small bottles of this guy as a special treat to myself every now and then this winter. While it isn’t my favourite Chouffe, it is a really beautiful squad player of a talented Belgian team. A lot of coffee and chocolate malty flavours with an undertone of winter spice, this beer doesn’t blow you away with excitement, but delivers what it claims to with hospitably hearty Belgian execution.

Hamirubi (569) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - AUG 11, 2016
33cl bottle at Het Leen Cafetaria in Eeklo (18 III 2016). Darkred brown to black brew with minimal collar. Hugely Belgian yeasted nose, with lots of grains too - a flavour bomb! Coffee or even Belgian andive bitterness in the tastefeel, lots of Liegeois syrup: Really not my cup of tea. Because of the overpowered, unappealing yeasts and malts. The body is heavy, yet not that sweet - despite the liquorice backbone. Mèh.

mice (820) - FINLAND - AUG 11, 2016
Punertavanruskea olut höttöisellä, melko runsaalla vaahdolla, joka kuitenkin katoaa nopeasti kokonaan. Tuoksu maltaisen makea, mutta todella mieto. Ehkä aavistus hedelmää siitä on havaittavissa. Maku maltaisen makea, alkoholi on hieman esillä. Pitkä, makea alkoholin lämmittämä ja mausteinen jälkimaku. Keskitäyteläisen ja täyteläisen välinen suutuntuma, kevyesti hiilihappoinen.

Night_Cap (119) - Southern Highlands, AUSTRALIA - AUG 10, 2016
Bottle 330ml. Served at cellar temperature. Pours a hazy ruby brown. Head is large, foamy, off white and lasts well in the glass. Aroma is of spiced fruit loaf, ginger snaps, Belgian candy sugar, cinnamon, pepper, herbs, prunes, dark plums and rum and raisin chocolate (light). Flavour is smooth with a light bitterness, raisin loaf, vinous port, overripe dark plums, Belgian candy sugar, leaves/herbs, cinnamon and ginger snaps and a peppery finish. Full bodied with medium carbonation, an oily texture and a good length finish. A very tasty and well balanced Christmas ale!

TheBeerUnited (47) - - AUG 1, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 1, 2016 Bottle from head of steam Leeds. Poured into chouffe tulip. Murky brown with tan white head and chocolate looking speckles scattered across. Aroma of sweet malt, coffee, toffee and dried fruit. Taste is heavily dominated by sweet malt. Subsiding notes of raisin and plum abashed by the warm boozyness. Finish is throat meltingly warm. A real winter warmer.

R4N5H (838) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 26, 2016
33cl bottle at Draft & Craft, Amsterdam on 04-Dec-2015 Dark red brown in colour with a tan coloured head. Sweet malt and dark fruit aroma. Full body and soft\/medium carbonation. Just too sweet - like treacle. Heavy malt and fruit. Just not for me.

Tricker (389) - Quebec, CANADA - JUN 12, 2016
Bière brune de 10 % d’alcool. Elle possède un col très mousseux au versement. Elle possède un odorat caramélisé avec une légère amertume. Elle possède un bon goût sucré, légèrement de toffee. Elle possède une légère amertume en finale. Son goût est fort et enivrant. Petit goût métallique occasionnel. Elle possède également un petit goût d’épice, style girofle. Très bonne !
