yourilevesque (1602) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 14, 2016
Merci à Ju-Lo pour le partage. Belle robe brune, mousseuse et chargée de cette chaleur festive et contagieuse qui caractérise les bières hivernales. Non pas que je sois un fan des bières de Noël, bien au contraire. En fait celle-ci est une bière d’hiver qui justement échappe à la folie du temps des fêtes. Bien herbacée et fruitée, le thym se fraie une place bien à lui parmi les arômes de gâteau aux fruits, d’orange, de marshmallow et de cassonade. Un bulbe de fenouil bien vert également qui empêche de sombrer dans la décadence. Quelques oranges bien nettes et juteuses. L’alcool est un paramètre important de l’équation mais celui-ci ne gêne en rien mon plaisir. Effervescence de fines bulles très plaisantes. Ni trop belge, ni trip levurée, aucune gomme balloune, j’aime beaucoup.

Moravius (1189) - Beijing, CHINA - NOV 11, 2016
Flasche (75 cl; MHD: 10/15) vom Bierzwerg, 3 Jahre im heimischen Keller gelagert. - Schönes Kupferbraun, leicht trüb. - In der Nase reiches dunkles Malz mit vornehmer obergäriger Frucht, Mokka, Portwein. - Im Antrunk süßes dunkles Malz mit kräftigen Toast- und Karamelnoten, Anklänge an Mocca und Weinbrandpralinen (mit Mocca), aufgelockert durch hintergründige zarte Säure und milden Hopfen. Mild rezent, weich im Mund. Sehr tiefgründig und komplex, mit portweinartigen Zügen, die von der sirupartigen Süße des frischen Bieres wenig übriggelassen haben. Im Abgang leichte Schärfe; hier schmecken auch die „bierfremden“ Gewürze (Thymian) etwas deutlich heraus, ebenso die stattlichen 10 %. - Die (Über)lagerung hat sich gelohnt, das Bier ist komplex und reich an Nuancen. Nur die Gewürznoten stören ein klein wenig.

aletcm (159) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - NOV 4, 2016
Marrom avermelhada, com espuma de boa formação e persistência. Aroma de caramelo e passas ao rum. Sabor de caramelo, com médio dulçor que balanceia bem com o alto teor alcoólico. Médio amargos que persiste no retrogosto. Boa cerveja para o inverno. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bierdimpfe (550) - Quebec, CANADA - NOV 1, 2016
Deep cloudy brown purple color, with a copper hue, and dense glass clinging activity. Thick creamy and frothy light brown 3-4 finger mountain head, lasting around 20-30 minutes, with gorgeous legs. Flavors of ginger, toffee, apples, dark berries, plums, sweet dark malts, walnuts, molasses, Belgian yeast, and herbal spices. Heavily sugary with dark fruits, slightly syrupy but a little vinous, still quite soft and complex with lots of sharpness. Slick medium body with crispy carbonation. Strong finish but superbly well balanced with hidden alcohol, thick pleasant ester sugary molassy feel, and a superb mix of spices. Truly a perfect warming winter beer, or for colder times. Still very fresh and quite rich, with appetizer qualities. Delicious flavors, perfect intensity, although the smell is highly alcoholic. Overall superb quality craft.

Pours clear, deep, reddish brown color with a long lasting off-white head. The aroma is very spicy and yeasty with hints of herbs, yeast, malts. It has a medium to full body with moderate carbonation and a smooth, creamy mouthfeel. Good flavour, with spices and yeast.

I’ve enjoyed small bottles of this guy as a special treat to myself every now and then this winter. While it isn’t my favourite Chouffe, it is a really beautiful squad player of a talented Belgian team. A lot of coffee and chocolate malty flavours with an undertone of winter spice, this beer doesn’t blow you away with excitement, but delivers what it claims to with hospitably hearty Belgian execution.

Hamirubi (574) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - AUG 11, 2016
33cl bottle at Het Leen Cafetaria in Eeklo (18 III 2016). Darkred brown to black brew with minimal collar. Hugely Belgian yeasted nose, with lots of grains too - a flavour bomb! Coffee or even Belgian andive bitterness in the tastefeel, lots of Liegeois syrup: Really not my cup of tea. Because of the overpowered, unappealing yeasts and malts. The body is heavy, yet not that sweet - despite the liquorice backbone. Mèh.
