September 7, 2014

216/1197) Home;  McChouffe by Brasserie d'Achouffe of Belgium:  **1/2;  8%;  an Ardennes strong beer;  chestnut colour;  sweet, dark sugar nose; rich, warming burnt sugar, dried fruit flavours with a hint of alcohol at the finish;

Having enjoyed their other beers, I had been looking forward to this one for a long time. According to legend this came about as a Belgian's idea of what must have kept Scotsmen warm on cold winter nights in their stone castles.
