3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a dark ruby red color with a beige head. Aroma is of spices light thyme, orange peel, some dark fruit, red berries, light funk and some peppery notes. The flavor is nice with spice notes of clove, thyme, brown sugary notes, subtle funk, orange peel, dark fruits and red berries. The body is medium with a dry mouthfeel. Overall my favorite Chouffe beer for sure.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
When it?s cold, there?s almost no aroma at all. Once it warms up a bit, there is a light Belgian aroma along with some nice toasted malt and wood. Not much to look at, a medium muddy brown with a small light tan head. Very spicy taste probably from the roasted malt and the high ABV. Nice brown ale taste with some dark caramel and light molasses sweetness and some dark fruit , figs and fruit cake dried fruit . Some vanilla and a bit of butter scotch on the sides. The dry spiciness balances out the sweetness nicely. This gets better as it warms and should definitely not be drunk cold.

Maroon in color with a small head and light lacing. Has a fruity aroma and taste (apricot?) and unfortunately a little metallic on the finish. Didn’t like it at first but it grew on me....a little.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAY 30, 2006 Bottle: Pours a red color. Deep dark red ... almost no other colors at all. A thick, tall fluffy light tan head. Smells of hops ... suprised to smell that in a Belian Strong Ale, especially one as highly rated as this one. Also some musty skunk in there, as well as alcohol, citrusy/lemon, and a little spice. The flavor is raisins, a litttle touch of hops on the finish, dry crisp finish despite the wet malty front. A little nuttiness and some cherries and other fruits.

Very dark brown colour thick beige head. Aroma is very strong with lots of yeast notes. Smells like bread and dark fruits, raisins. Flavour is very bold and fruity. Lots of plum, raisin, prune, and other fruits and berries. Slightly bready with a caramel finish. This is a great brew.

On tap. Pours a clear brown color with a medium sized tan head. Smells sweet. Taste is of lightly roasted malt, caramel, nuts, lighter citrusy fruits, sugar and spices. Slightly bitter and tangy aftertaste. Very good.

Malt, spice, and Belgian yeast in the aroma. Caramel, toffee, bread, and a little banana in the flavor. Finish has some alcohol, creamy carbonation, and a little hop bite. Really, really good.

Bottle. Fruity aroma. Beautiful reddish brown body with large beige head. Flavor is mild, fruity, malt. Finish is somewhat sweet. A pleasant but not overly remarkable beer.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.75 l bottle from Alko Arkadia, Helsinki (Christmas collection). Colour is dark ruby red, clear. Head is OK. Taste is sweet combined light with some hops and more thoroughly with liquorice. This is nice and quite easy to drink which is deceptive since it’s high ABV.
