Mc Chouffe

Mc Chouffe

Mc Chouffe is a dark beer from Belgium. She is the younger sibling of world-renowned La Chouffe. Its peculiar flavor, rich red color, and beautiful creamy head distinguish it as a one-of-a-kind beer. On the palate this beer offers spicy aniseed and licorice flavors that are perfectly balanced by full-bodied caramel overtones. Aromas of pear, as well as a hint of bitterness towards the end of the palate, characterize this beer’s flavor profile. Mc Chouffe is remarkably smooth, despite its strength.

We got our hand on this dark ale thanks to the Belgian Beer Shop. For best price guarantee check our price comparison page.

Professional review (BeerConnoisseur)

When swirled, this inviting ale smells of caramelized malts, sweet toffee, candied cherries, raisins, plums, vanilla and warming alcohol vapor. Lively with substantial carbonation and a thick, fl uffy, off-white head that settles quickly, this dark brown, opaque brew has a hint of ruby sparkle. Intricate ripe fruit esters of plum, cherry and fi g dominate the flavor profi le and blend with caramely/biscuity malts, providing a medium body that finishes moderately sweet. Floral flavoring and bittering hops exist in the backdrop simply to prevent the beer from becoming cloying. For such an approachable and drinkable ale, this beer also showcases complex malts and attention-grabbing Belgian fermentation esters that make for a exceptional treat.
