N’Ice Chouffe Review

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.

    While it's difficult to picture Santa as a young man, he was once. He met the future Mrs. Claus one snowy night when she offered him a winter ale that she brewed herself. It was love at first sight - for both the Mrs. and her winter ales. With Santa's growing fame, his favorite brews became named after his favorite day - Christmas. Santa now travels the world each year to spread the joy that began in a stable in Bethlehem two millennia ago.
