I had 4 shots at this beer, 4 bottles over the course of three days. Really unique beer I thought, nver had anything quite like it. I would add that there was a strong smell and taste of green apples to this beer and it really seems to have something that stimulates your blood to flow making you feel pleasantly warm and relaxed all over. I will see k this beer out in the future, a real favorite for me.

A: Dark brown with a beige consistent head leaving a nice lacing.
S: Belgian yeast, caramel.
T: Nuts, caramel, not that much hoppiness.
M: At the final of the sip, this beer's heavy. The alcohol should be better dissimulated to make it great and balanced. Its good carbonation saved the day.
O: It's a good example of a Belgian Strong Dark Ale even though the alcohol wasn't that much dissimulated to be able to get more complexity out of the beer. Basically there was too much alcohol for this flavor. Yet, it might've been one of the best BSDA that I've had for months.

Poor this majestic belgian McChouffe in the nice Chouffe glass.
a Very nice dark brown with a very great foamy head appears...

a Little smell of chocolate, roasted barley smell with some lighty coffee elememts.

The taste is fantastic. Smooth, silky and very delicate.
Milk brown chocolate, some caramel en a very good body.

One of my favourite this great McChouffe!

Enjoyed this bomber bottle out of a Beligan Tulip glass.

A: Pours an amber hue with an off-white frizzy head that slowly dissipates into a solid persistent lace.

S: Sweet wine-like aroma with a caramel roasted malt scent.

T: Similar to the smell there is a caramel wine-like flavor with a Belgian yeast background.

M: Pretty boozy – full body and medium carbonation.

O: Awesome Belgian Brew – great flavors and aromas.
