Brown Orval. The first thing of note is the sour Brett aroma pouring from the ever-expanding head of this beer. This is a very light brown and demonstrates the difference between bruin and brown, nice color, crystal clear. Some very mellow malt flavors, a little more hops here than I would have expected. But there it is, the reason why I love belgians, the bugs -- brett, brett, brett. Truly a wonderful beer.

shaynsawchuk (359) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - APR 16, 2014
330 mL bottle. Medium to dark red mahogany with a thick cap of white foam that lingers and laces. Brown sugar and sweet dark fruit here: fig, date and prune. A touch of sherry-like oxidation. Some baking spices. Quite dry, full carbonation and body with a creamy mouth feel. Somewhat underwhelming compared to its competition.

PapaVillum (294) - Valby, DENMARK - APR 14, 2014
33 cl, flaske, 8,0 % ABV, gave fra Værste Fætter og Anne - tak! 14. april 2014. Flot klar mahognifarvet belgisk Bruine med god tyk moccafarvet skumtop på et par cm. Knap så kraftig aroma, men der er tørret frugt, rosin. Og lidt syrlighed, som fra gæret frisk frugt. Smagen er klassisk Bruine. En blanding af sødme fra tilsat sukker, antagelig kandis-, og bitterhed bl.a. fra den belgiske klostergær. Ikke kraftig og heftig, men let drikkelig trods de 8 %. Kuldioxidindholdet er på et medium niveau, men jeg omhældte øllet til et andet glas, og det gav et mere dæmpet og blødere indtryk i munden. God halvlang eftersmag. En gedigen øl i sin smags- og styrke klasse.

Moravius (275) - Berlin, GERMANY - APR 12, 2014
Flasche (33 cl) vom Bierzwerg-Onlineversand. - Dunkles Rotbraun, kremiger beigefarbener Schaum. - In der Nase süßes dunkles Malz, Rosinen, Pflaume. - Im Antrunk reiche obergärige Fruchtigkeit über karamellig-süßem Röstmalz, ausbalanciert durch herbe Noten von Lakritz und Schokolade und einen Spritzer pikanter Säure. Stark rezent, etwas dünnes Mundgefühl. Mittlere würzig-erdige Hopfenherbe im leicht trockenen Abgang, begleitet von Röstmalz und Süße. - Solides Dubbel ohne Überraschungen. Etwas zu dünn und zu schaumig für ein achtprozentiges Starkbier. Mit weniger Kandiszucker und mehr Hopfen könnte das ein richtig gutes Bier werden ... - Solid dubble without any surprises. A bit too thin and fluffy for a dark strong ale. With less candi sugar and more hops, this could be a really good beer...

HipHopOpotamus (210) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 5, 2014
I really enjoyed this beer, its full of good flavour, but not to the point where you only can drink one. Made simple and enjoyable. I could drink many of these.

Canmoore (203) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 1, 2014
Pours a cloudy ruby colour, with a small off white head. Aroma notes include dark fruits, figs, raisins, and toasty malts. Tasting notes include rich dark fruits like figs, dates, and black liquorice, rich toasted malts, and earthy yeast completes the Platte. Excellent!

hangunder (192) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 1, 2014
Nice caramel sweet aroma, with a hint of malt and biscuit. Dark brown and hazy, huge long lasting head. Tastes subdued but very well balanced, upfront get some caramel sweetness, malt and then to finish a hint of belgian yeast, alcohol and earthy hops. Not much fruit character here. Aggressively carbonated and medium bodied. A pretty good belgian strong, if slightly simple.
