300ml bottle, poured into La Chouffe tulip.

A: Very dark ruby, on the way to being opaque, small head, morphed into lid of film which was keen to stay around.

S: Yeasty cranberry, was typical of the La Chouffe beers I’ve sampled and enjoyed.

T: Lots of cranberry upfront, somemolasses. Finished with some real musty yeastiness.

M: Very smooth and light bodied for the high alcohol content, creamy texture.

O: I can’t believe it had 10% abv, didn’t stray from the La Chouffe prototype, a winner, thumbs up from me.

Poured into a Duvel tulip. Back label says Best Before End 11 2016.

A- Pours a dark brown color with a 1/2 inch tan head that retains well before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a mostly full sheet of surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves large clots behind.

S- Dark bread, booze, some spice and it's a bit sweet.

T- Very complex with some Belgian candi sugar, more spice and a nice yeasty quality. Alcohol isn't as apparent as in the aroma. Slightly sweet exhibiting some caramel, heavy plum and raisin. The booze eventually sets in after mulitiple sips.

M- Sharp from the alcohol with medium carbonation and a fullish body.

O- A nice sipper for sure with lots of dark fruit and each element nicely balanced.
