Embrouille (2843) - SWITZERLAND - JAN 3, 2008
Bottled 75cl. It pours a dark ruby beer with a dense, slightly beige head of a rather big size. The nose is of malt, alcohol, oranges, plums, raisins, rosemary, brown sugar and thyme. Lots of yeast showing up. The taste is very sweet malty, syrupy with lots of melon, toffee and yeast. Extremely smooth and nicely spicy with oranges and banana appearing which are accompanied by chocolate and molasses. Highly drinkable despite its strength. Caramel, alcohol, licorice and a lot of yeast in the finish. Definately quite a lot of thyme in there.

decaturstevo (5897) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - JAN 1, 2008
Deep cherry red pour with a touch of brown. A light hint of sour fruit and spice, and caramel. A rich solid flavor of fruit and a hint of bitter. Carbonation is good palate is solid. Rich spicy full bodied holiday beer. Winter warmer comes through well and spicy campfire warmth.

larsga (7330) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 31, 2007
Medium coarseish beige lasting head. Deep dark translucent red body with vigourous carbonation. Fruity yeasty bready licorice and spice aroma. Dry sharpish licorice and fruit taste with spicy peppery notes. Considerable alcohol heat as well as carbonation in the mouth. Dry wooden spicy alcoholic licorice aftertaste. Some chocolate, too. Surprisingly light in body and taste. Very nice! (0.75l bottle, a Christmas gift from hcalsos.)

MrBendo (1064) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - DEC 30, 2007
One year old 750ml bottle. Hazy orange/copper with a large head. Aroma of brown sugar, yeast, caramel, and raisins. A bit of warmth shines through the sweet taste. Some spiciness, also. Sticky, sticky texture. Fairly nice in a reasonable serving size.

beerbill (3605) - Laurel, New York, USA - DEC 28, 2007
750 ml bottle. Christmas 2006. Pours a clear, dark amber with a moderate off-white head that lasted through mid-glass and left no lacing. Pleasant aroma of malt and just a hint of spice. More flavorful than the aroma suggests with thyme, citrus and yeast present with a strong malt backbone. The alcohol was very well hidden. Enjoyable.

WallyWalrus (205) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 25, 2007
750ml bottle. Pours a cloudy dark amber with a nicely laced off-white head. Aroma is rich, with a backbone of sweet caramel alongside a hoppy citrus bite, dark fruit, autumnal spices, and some roasted malt. Taste is rich and medium-bodied with an initially sweet flavor of caramel, roasted malt, and coffee giving way to a lingering finish of hops, spice, and a bite of brown liquor. An excellent cold-weather brew and another winner from Chouffe.
