Der braune bruder vom geliebten la chouffe. Schöne braune farbe, mittelstarke eintrübung. Weisser, feinporiger schaum und recht stabile Krone- sieht lecker aus!! Arome hefig, zurückhaltend. Rosinen und Karamell. Antrunk ölig, guter Körper, genug Substanz. Der Abgang ist herrlich ausbalanciert: malz wie zu erwarten prägnant, dennoch schön hopfig. Sehr cremiger, ausgeglichener nachgeschmack. Dabei noch süffig, wie sein heller Bruder. Volltreffer! Dybo (2) - - MAY 11, 2017 does not count
Bière brune, goût agréable mais fade, léger goût café.
Ne reste pas en bouche

330 ml bottle, served in 0,3 l mug. Brown colour, nice white foam head. Raisin, coriander, dried fruit, brown sugar, herbs, caramel. Sweet-malty taste. Alcoholic warmth. Soft carbonated, medium body, oily texture. It seems to be the ’brown brother’ of the regular La Chouffe, but I like this one a bit more. Tony_Grayne (360) - Minsk, BELARUS - APR 29, 2017
330 ml bottle. Hazy dark brown brew. 2 finger fluffy off-white head. Stays not for long. Leaves not much lacing. Fizzy carbonation. Aroma: toffee, caramel, spicy yeast, herbs, dried banana, hops, phenols. Flavor is dark malts, nougat, spicy sweetness, hops, yeast. Smooth and creamy mouthfeel. Rich in taste and aroma. At a blind tasting I would bet that it’s a good Abbey Dubbel. Definitely I will try it again and again. vlada94 (166) - Nis, SERBIA - APR 18, 2017

Bottle from Alko, Helsinki.
Pours murky dark brown with a quickly diminishing bubbly head. Carbonation seems surprisingly lively at first, but ceases rather rapidly. Aroma of raisin, caramel, malts and yeast. Taste is mostly sweet dark malts and yeasty spiciness. Caramel and dark fruits (raisin) provide nice background along with surprisingly bitter hoppiness. Body is a bit watery and finish a little blunt. Taste is a bit dull and palate lacking that creamy smoothness I so much appreciate in my belgian dark ales. Usually Chouffes are top notch, and based on some other users’ comments I read on Mc Chouffe I’m wondering whether I got some bad batch? nathanvc (449) - Brugge, BELGIUM - APR 16, 2017
Pours dark brown to black with a beige, lasting, creamy, lacing-leaving head. The aroma contains hay, dried fruits, caramel, hops, herbs, yeast, some chocolate and coffee. It tastes medium to light sweet and medium to light bitter. The finish is long, light roasted, dry, bitter and with notes of chocolate. Alcohol is very well hidden. Creamy texture and good carbonation. In many ways, it’s literally the brown counterpart to the regular La Chouffe. Balanced and tasty. bobroman (1166) - Torun, POLAND - APR 15, 2017
Tasted on 22.10.15. Pleasant aroma of caramel with some fruits. Small head disappearing to thin layer. Cloudy dark amber colour. Well-balanced taste of caramel sweetness and bitterness with perfectly hidden alcohol. weaver23ph (306) - Wrocław, POLAND - APR 6, 2017
