Inoven (133) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - MAY 25, 2016
Donkerbruin bier met stevige beige schuimkraag die lang staat. Aroma is moutig. Smaak is caramelachtig van de gebrande mout, en zoet. Je proeft een stevig, zwaar bier. Weinig nasmaak.

QcBeer (98) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 14, 2016
De couleur Rubis transparent avec une belle mousse et une bonne rétention. Au nez, on perçoit le sucre, l’alcool, cerise, caramel et mélasse. En bouche, c’est rond. On y sent les épices, la prune, cerise, mélasse et caramel. Un alcool doux et somptueux qui descend bien.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

330 mL bottle shared by ebone1988 at the conclusion of The Chouffe Party 2016. The pour is a darker mud colored copper with a thin film of lift kahko colored head that leaves some pretty good lace as it falls down. The aroma is interesting. There is a big exponential booziness that just increases the longer you inhale. It’s got a strange sweet malt thing happening, but it does seem a little inconsistent. There’s a light fruitiness to it, and then the booze takes over. It’s not really the best of things by any means. Ugh. The flavor is well, fuck. There is a sweet malt up front and then that just rolls into a heavy booze. All of the booze is spent melting your throat. The malt part of this is good. The alcohol is overbearing and dominant. The mouth feel is thin and light with a decent carbonation and the aftertaste is just all boozy and burning alcohol. Christ. Thank Jeebus that The Chouffe Party 2016 has come to its conclusion.

ebone1988 (1034) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - APR 24, 2016
Bottle shared with koleminer20 at the conclusion The Chouffe Party 2016. Aroma is sweet malt, dark fruit, maybe a little thyme, smells like Christmas, very boozy. Appearance is dark brown, light brown head, pretty clear. Taste is booze, sweet malt, dark fruit, drying. Mouthfeel is medium body, light but crisp carbonation, very boozy aftertaste. Overall, this one could be better but is too hot to be enjoyable.

fhoublon (404) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - APR 16, 2016
Bouteille de 330ml (best before end 06-2017), achetée dans une SAQ au coût de $3.65. Dégustée le 11 février 2016 (Trappist glass). Bière brune foncée quasi opaque. Mousse assez, col moyen beige foncé, persistant. Assez effervescente, bulles moyennes. Odeur de fruits secs (dates, figues), de crème et de sucre. Saveur un peu herbacée au départ puis de fruits secs et d’alcool par la suite. Assez consistante sans être trop lourde. L’alcool ressort en finale sans être gênant. Aurait toutefois pu être un peu moins forte et plus savoureuse.

Aggiebob (597) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - MAR 21, 2016
Bottle: Murky brown with a off-white head and lace. The aroma is caramel malt and spiciness. The flavors included spices, caramel, plum and raisins. It was well balanced with a strong sense of alcohol at the end.
