Favorite all-time beer for me. I'll have to revisit Chimay Blue to confirm, but this is right up there with the Rochefort 8 and any of the best dark belgians.

A: Almost opaque, but red aura, if that makes sense.
S: Dark, dried fruits.
T&M: Just about flawless. It's got a lot of carbonation...which is good because you need to be paced with this!!! First inclination is to suck it down. It's got what I think of as grape soda goodness...those dark candy sugars going to town on your taste buds. But don't sell my review short, this is a refined brew. Patience is rewarded as it mellows. Raisins, plums, you know what I'm talking about!
D: Dangerous, yes. But if you know what you're dealing with, you will bide your time with it.

Brown appearance.

Nice aroma that is not alcoholy that you would expect.

Taste is perfect blend of caramel and chocolaty flavor. Nice fruity flavor as well. Great taste

The bubbly appearnce is present in the mouthfeel as well. Nice feel.

VERY drinkable beer. The high alcohol content is not present at all making for a great beer.

Bottled in 2010.

A: Massive 1 1/4" tan coloured head that left a nice lacing over brownish-amber coloured liquid.

S: Yeast, spices, apples and pears.

T: Apples and pears up front which transitions to cloves, spices, bananas, figs and cherries in the finish.

M: Medium viscosity and a high level of fine carbonation.

O: A beautiful and complex Belgian Strong Dark Ale, and my favorite so far from this brewery.

Gift from wife. I love wife.

N'ice Chouffe is just beautiful beer. Dark brown, not as pretty as it tastes, but much like the rest in the style. Smell: spicy, sweet, candied fruit, but not overwhelming like so many other belgians. Taste is just divine. The spiced Chouffe taste with a heavier molasses/orange feel and stronger/alcoholic taste. This is the ultimate winter beverage. The alcohol is slightly warming on the tongue. Aftertaste of ginger and chocolate.

This is my favorite winter beer. Vive la Chouffe indeed.

Absolutely loved this beer and so did the missus.
Had it on tap at the La Chouffe brewery whilst enjoying one of the N'Icest (pun intended) homemade lasagne's I have ever eaten!
Flavour profile was a cross between a SDA and a Belgian Quad. Bag's of flavour. So much so that I went back for seconds and thirds!
I love the standard La Chouffe and I only wish this one was as readily available for home consumption too. The brewery is too far away from Australia!!!

Most beautiful thing I have ever poured down my mouth. Caramel aftertaste after it goes down smooth. The beer gods have smiled upon you N'Ice Chouffe. How could the lord of the beer make this one any better? News flash, no way it could. Praise God for the sweet nectar of this one. The only thing that was rough was I jizzed in my pants on the first sip cause it was so amazing.
