Excellent winter beer, well balanced and no harsh edges. Raisins and warming winter spices in a dark beer with Belgian panache. Great one from Brasserie D'Achouffe. Will return to this one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DijkBier (651) - AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS - JAN 1, 2018
Never rated this well-known beer before. Bottle pours dark ruby brown with small beige head. Aroma: sweet, dark malts, caramel, vanilla, light choco. Taste: more than medium sweet, syrupy, soft bitter; no development. OK carbo, but more alcoholic than its brother McChouffe. Again: nice & easy heavy beer, but not really charactistic.

PowY (1157) - AUSTRIA - DEC 31, 2017
330 ml bottle at home, bb. 03.2019. Pours a dark copper with a beige head. The aroma is lightly yeasty (dough) and lightly malty (cereals, honey) and some noticeable herbal hop presence. Medium full body with a medium carbonation a medium to medium heavy sweetness and a light to medium bitterness. The flavor is dominated by the sweet malt (brown sugar, honey, caramel, molasses) but features a nice herbal note along with sweet candied fruits (orange, plums, raisins). Not alcoholic but warming. Finishes with some residual sweetness and some bitter hops. Pretty full of flavors, rather sweet and nearly cloying - enjoyable.

downender (9003) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2017
Botte from Brewer's Droop, Bristol. Deep, ruddy brown in colour, with a short-lived, off-white, head and opaque clarity. Aroma of candy sugar, leafy hops, berry fruit and rich malts. Flavour was sweetish, with more fruits, a hint of spice and dried herbs, before a warming finish. A good winter beer.
