Very enjoyable beer. Cloudy brown in colour. Lively carbonation. Toffee/treacle notes in taste. DijkBier (650) - AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS - JAN 1, 2018
Drank this already years ago, but never rated it. Bottle pours clear ruby dark brown, with big beige head that falls down quickly. Aroma is mostly dark malts, not so much more... Taste is rather sweet, brown sugar, caramel, and softly bitter; no development towards aftertaste. OK carbo. That's the thing with Achouffe beers: they're nice and easy, but lack special character. vcsa (74) - - DEC 28, 2017

Aroma: Caramel, malt, yeast and fruit, with hints of hops.
Taste: Malt, caramel and fruit, with yeast and spice notes. No enough hops to compensate the sweetness. Sweet alcoholic warm finish, along with faint bitter notes.

Bière brune avec quasi aucune mousse. Légère amertume et arômes bien développés. Manque légèrement de caractère. AleRider78 (1498) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 21, 2017
Bottle from LCBO. Pours a huge frothy beige head that dissipates a fairly average size foamy head. Has a dark amber brownish appearance. Lots of dirty lacing remains. Aromas of toasted and bready malts, as well as subtle yeasty notes. Flavours are mostly on the sweet side, lots of resin notes and some nutty and toasty notes. Smooth and slick mouthfeel, goes down very nicely. Subtle bitterness in the finish. Pretty good. Spab (4217) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 16, 2017
750 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a murky mahogany colour with moderate-sized light tan head that leaves nice lacing. Aroma is sweet tree fruit, dark fruit, brown sugar and caramel. Flavour has raisin, caramelized banana, brown sugar, caramel and leather. Fine carbonation. Nice. ManVsBeer (11079) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 7, 2017
Bottle from Booths Supermarket, Media City. Dark hazed brown with a very thin head. Has a mild darker malt sweetness with some Belgium yeasts available too. It doesn't quite feel its strength, with some hops evident in its aroma. p0urmeac0ld0ne (407) - Merthyr Tydfil, WALES - DEC 6, 2017
Dark, milder tasting brother/sister to La Chouffe. Honestly, I’m a little disappointed. There is a roasted dark flavour and a noticeable but not very prominent alcoholic bite, and, well, that’s it. Maybe I had a bad bottle? Really didn’t jump out of the glass at me, unfortunately, but I did get it from some crappy newsagents so perhaps it was a dud, who knows?
