29th Beer: N'Ice Chouffe...

Shared this pint with Dan. His X-mas gift to me. I was supposed to evaluate it but forgot.

Overall very good - smokey strong flavor and smell.

Belgium Ale brewed with Thyme and Curacao peel.
10% ABV

From the back label:

N'Ice Chouffe, limited edition, brewed only each winter by Brasserie d'Achouffe in the heart of the Ardennes forest of Belgium. Brasserie d'Achouffe began brewing this intensely complex bottle conditioned ale in 1993.

This deep dark winter warmer is rich in taste, spicy, full of complex fruity, berrylike, vinous flavors that are complimented by malt overtones.

N'Ice Chouffe, is brewed from: springwater, malted barley, hops, thyme, and dried orange peel and a lot of dark candy sugar.

Beer enthusiasts may wish cellar this bottle immediately for enjoyment in the years to come or serve at 60 F as an after dinner drink. The scene depicted on the front of the bottle features a typical winter vista of the village of Achouffe with the chapel of St. Joseph and the brewery in the background.
