Draft at Isaac’s: Poured a dark cherry color with a small head. The aroma was sugary, fruits, plums, and raisins. The flavor was delicious, sweet, raisons, sligltly malty but finishing smooth. Overall, a great beer.

GJF (1520) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - JAN 5, 2009
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2009 Pours a muddy chestnut with a very fizzy head that dies almost instantaneously. Very carbonated, but a thing spritzy feel to it. Flavor is good, malty with an herbal bitterness. It’s got a bit of a syrupy quality, but overall a nice beer.

ChainGangGuy (4908) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - JAN 4, 2009
Appearance: Dark mahogany-hued body with an inch of creamy-looking, off-white head. Very delicate, powdery lacing on the down. Smell: Sugary, boozy nose with notes of caramel, dried fruits, earthy spices, and orange extract -- it smells like a slice of fruitcake with a shot of liquor poured over top. Taste: Sweet mix of dark candi sugar and caramel upfront followed by dried cherries and a shot of what you’d expect raisin schnapps to taste like. Small savory, peppery hint along with a taste of dried, bitter orange peel. Light bitterness throughout. Sip of spiced wine. The alcohol particularly comes through on the dry finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium carbonation. A bit chewy, a bit sticky. Drinkability: The drinkability for this big, warming, spiced concoction is fair. Another fine beer from a fine brewery.

2007 edition. Dark mahogony color. Aroma has spicy overtones with a nice malt presense. Semi-sweet flavor with the spices, not too powerfull. Has a mild richness to it. Very enjoyable and pleasant.

2008 Edition, brought up from the cellar and served cool - Off white head that dissipates. Brown body, a tiny bit watery on the mouthfeel. The aroma and taste are what make this brew. Sweet, balanced, malty majesty. Warms up nicely, smooth. Quite a treat. 750 mL

satan165 (1020) - River Grove, Illinois, USA - DEC 27, 2008
strong spice, boozy nose as well. flavor is of slight malt, relatively strong sweetness and heavy spice. still comes across a bit hot on the palate, more then id like but then again as it says on the label, this is best as a winter warmer, cellar temp in a tulip or schnifter. this doesnt have alot of the things i like about the other chouffe beers which is unfair for me to hold against it, but its still a solid beer at worst. one of the most appropriate seasonal beers i can think of off hand, try one before it gets too hot outside.

indybigtom (14) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - DEC 27, 2008
2004 Edition. Very smooth with the sugars and spices coming through. No hotness and a very smooth mouthfeel. Quite enjoyable and Ill be looking forward to the couple of bottles of the 2006 version Ive put away.

3.9
tomer (3640) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - DEC 27, 2008
0.75L bottle, murky brown colour with some reddish taints smaal stable head. spicey aroma with some unusual spices, i detected cumin and saffron, also some vanila. Spicey flavours, clove and cinnamon, scent of orange peel and some mellow white fruit, all souronding a big malty backbone Alcohol is strong and a little overpowering. Body is not to big for such a strong brew, sour aftertaste with some notes of dried fruits.
