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.

Boxereddy (193) - BELGIUM - JAN 6, 2015
Donkerbruin bier met een kleine beige schuimkraag. De geur heeft een gistig tintje met een toets van gedroogde vruchten en enkele geroosterde noten. Fatsoenlijke bitterheid in de mond met een moutige zoetheid. Licht alcoholische afdronk. Geen topper maar wel best lekker te drinken!

yngwie (14774) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 13, 2014
Bottle. An almost clear one, dark amber to brown in color and with a small, dense, dark beige head. The aroma has a yeasty touch, with sugar, dried fruits and some roasted notes. Alcohol too. The flavor has a decent bitterness to deal with the little malty sweetness there is. Dried fruits, some nuts and oranges. Yeast too. Full body with some alcohol warmth. Pleasant carbonation. Lasting finish. Not very interesting this one, but sure drinkable. 141213
