Brasserie D’Achouffe makes their spiced Christmas beer once a year. It’s a Belgium strong dark ale with lots of candy sugar and spice to make everything nice.
N’Ice Chouffe Limited Edition pours dark reddish-brown with an amber head of foam that settles quickly. There are aromas of roasted malts, yeast, and a touch of sweet cinnamon. Malts, figs, cinnamon flavors come through. N’Ice Chouffe is brewed with thyme and dried orange peel which both mix in well for a bit of spice.
All of Brasserie D’Achouffe beers are adorned with elves from the Ardennes forest. N’Ice Chouffe features two in Santa hats gathered around a fire in the snow.
N’Ice Chouffe is unfiltered and bottle conditioned. At 10% alcohol by volume it tastes as if it would hold up well to aging for a few years. I’ve set some aside to find out.
