The ‘Bink brown’ is the most known ‘Bink beer’. It’s a beer of high fermentation, unfiltered and not pasteurized, with secundary fermentation in the bottle. This tasty beer is appreciated by the lover of brown beers. The ingredients are: four types of malt, one belgian type of hop, brewing liquor and yeast. Our ‘Bink brown’ is a full and softly bitter beer with an aftertaste of sweets and malt. The alcohol content of this ‘little giant’ is 5,5 % vol.alc.

A dark brown beer. Light malt flavors and aromas, with a prominent earthy flavor/aroma combination as well. Simple but not bad.

UPDATED: MAR 25, 2006 Rerate Found what was missing last time - flavor! More pronounced this time around Original 3.3 Habersham Beverage Warehouse, Savannah, Ga. 330 ml bottle. Pours a dark orange to light brown with a fluffy, persistent off-white head. Aroma has some date accents with a touch of cocoa. Flavor is not very pronounced an slighlty subdued. Pick up hints of raisins, dates, chocolate and some caramel, but has an off back end artificial taste. Decenlty thick mouthfeel. Overall, not bad, just missing something.

(Bottle 33 cl) Originally Kerkom produced only two beers: Bink Bruin and Bink Blond. They were both simply called "Bink", shared the same label and you could only tell the difference from the different coloured caps. I believe that explains the rating from "jbrus" of a beer simply called "Bink". I believe it’s the Bink Bruin. Nowadays Kerkom is a bit more sophistiticated in the way they present their beers. Anyways, this is dark brown, very unclear - almost muddy. Some maltiness and slightly roasted notes. A touch of sweetness. Not exactly a great beer but pleasant and easy to drink due to the low alcohol. 100198

DocLock (7876) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 16, 2005
Pours hazy, dark brown with medium, off-white head. Aroma of corn flakes, caramel malt, some almonds, cognac. Tastes caramel malty, figgy, with finishing nuts, toffee, and brown sugar. Good complexity and balance. Nice.

leitrim65 (402) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 23, 2005
Dark brown with a thin tan head. The aroma is sweet molasses. Mildly carbonated, slightly sour, and quite thin in the body with notes of malt flavors. Nothing is very well coordinated about this beer.

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - MAY 4, 2005
Brown color, tan head. Aroma of dark fruit, mild. Flavor was pretty fruity, malty, a little chalky. Thinner bodied, lacking. Pretty boring.

Deep copper in color with ruby highlights and a small white head. Malty and sweet with acidic notes and yeast character. Spicy and fruity.

hawkshadow (107) - Rural Retreat, Virginia, USA - APR 10, 2005
Has malty caramel aroma. Poured cloudy dark brown. Small, mostly diminishing head. Starts dry, lightly bitter. Finishes smooth sweet creamy. A little too much carbonation, but other than that a very easy to drink balanced beer. I will drink again.
