Arendonker Bruin wordt ambachtelijk gebrouwen en is een donker degustatiebier van hoge gisting met nagisting op de fles. De caramel- en roostermouten kleuren het bier diep donker bruin en dragen bij tot de typisch moutige en lichtjes geroosterde volle smaak. Bij het recept van dit bier liet de brouwmeester zich leiden door zijn persoonlijke smaak. Het is een karaktervol bier met een alcoholgehalte van 8.5 vol.%.

20 Oct 2012: 33cl bottle at the lovely Diest bierfestival, shared with my wife. Brown/dark red body with a tan/biege head. This is a fairly sweet brew with malty molasses in both the nose and the taste: The malts aren’t alone though, it is more complicated than that. Yeasty notes, summery fruits, with hints of spices and herbs: all have an appearance in the beer, some fleetingly, some lasting. Complex and slightly oily texture to the bodyfeel. OK more than spectacular but glad we had the bottle.

Voor een donker bier (wat mijn favoriete zijn) was dit toch wat een tegenvaller. Niet veel smaak

Very dark brown with a red hue. Aroma of sweet dark malts and caramel. Flavour has similar characteristics but less intense. Overall a bit thin and weak.
