Hey drinking buddies, today I am turning my attention to La Chouape brewery and their Double Chat Chat, Belgian style beer. For the sake of honesty this beer was chosen by my better half and you can find her on Instagram @nonabakes (she makes some amazing pies, so check her out!). Why did she pick this beer...simple it has a cat and cats make everything better.
Name: Double Chat Chat
Style: Belgian Dubbel
Brewery: La Chouape
Country: Canada, Quebec.
"Rousse and warm, this dual type of beer caresses the palate with plum and cookies on a final sweet herbs and spices."
Sight: Dark reddish brown, with a good head on pour.
Aroma: Sugar sweetness, raisins and dark berry aromas.
Taste: A bit sweet for my taste, some fruit taste kind of like a Christmas cake. Has a banana/ester taste and overall quite light.
Would I buy it again? No.
My reasoning for the no result is that for a Belgian style dubbel, I would rather go get the real thing. Like a Rochefort 10 or Chimay. This beer just seemed to lack the body, that I would expect from a beer of this style. It was also a bit too sweet for my palette, so if you have a sweet tooth you may just like this.
Plus side it was a very well produced beer, with a clean finish and a great look to the beer. Tho I may not have enjoyed this beer, I do look forward to trying some of their other beers.
So what's your thoughts on this beer? Let me know in the comments below.
