Beer A Day: Mc Chouffe

From the makers of La Chouffe comes Mc Chouffe, its dark sister.

Mc Chouffe

Mc Chouffe:  8%abv  Suggested serving temperature 4-10C  39-50F.

As stated by the brewers, this beer is “The scotch of The Ardennes.”  It is dark and sweet-smelling.  When poured from the bottle there is a cola-like head that you can hear fizzing for a few seconds before it dissipates to nothing.  Aromas of dark fruit and malt dominate the nose.  It is a dark, opaque amber color.  Flavors are of roasted barley, sweet malt, caramel-like.  Not as heavy a body as I would have thought looking at it, although, there is almost a refreshing wetness to it.  Light alcohol tones that work well with the accompanying flavors and textures.  Something of a unique dark ale, this beer.  Simply stated, I like it.
