La Chouffe has a thick, frothy, off-white head, lots of heavy lacing left behind, a hazy, golden appearance, and lots of tight bubble streams. The aroma is of very spicy, yeasty, pungent, sweet bread and grain, and the flavor is of all that, with some dessert bread and pepper. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and La Chouffe finishes dry, rich, somewhat refreshing, and easing going. Overall this beer is difficult to describe, but I score it outstanding.
