Volgon (2761) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 31, 2002
UPDATED: JAN 7, 2004 750 ML bottle: Starts with a bready/cookie aroma, distinctly Belgian. Good size head, orange/fruit taste. Unbelievably smooth. Tasted great with (and in) sauteed chicken. Uglyradio (790) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - JUN 20, 2003
This ale pours a murky, cloudy brown color with a big, rocky, lasting off-white head. The aroma is strong with lots of dark fruits, yeasts, and spices. It has a medium body with full carboantion and a lively, smooth mouthfeel. The flavor is very complex with dark mafruits and malts, various spices, brown sugar, and molasses flavors all intermingling across your tongue and taste buds. The finish is long, sweet, malty, and spicy. A very wonderfull beer from a great brewery. JPDIPSO (6286) - Wauwatosa, USA - OCT 27, 2002
Starts out as a clear ruby/chestnut color with a tall ecru head. As you get deeper in the bottle it turns a opaque brown with a scads of small brown particles. Sweet hay, light orange hops and yeast aromas. touch of cocoa, along with mild pale malt, light fruits and just a touch of corriander. Nothing overpowering but very balanced and pleasant. muzzlehatch (4969) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 23, 2001
Only letdown to this great beer is in the aroma, which is nice, yeasty and a bit fruity but very faint. A superb-looking dark amber/brown body topped with very creamy, thick foam leads to a wondrous, explosively rich flavor that, as VENOM suggests, seems as much Belgian strong as Bock. Palate is very smooth but lingers nicely. Gorgeous! caesar (7274) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - OCT 20, 2002
How can a chouffe be bad? Ofcourse they cant be bad, and this bok also has the typical chouffe taste, which you all know when you've ever had a chouffe. So just see this bok as the bock version of chouffe.
