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.

Beautiful dark, rich appearance with an aroma of dark cocoa and some molasses. It promised a lot but was truly lacking when push came to shove. The taste was watery and, I must admit, unexciting and bland. A true bummer.

Cocoa, chocolate, lightly tart unripe bananas in the nose. Opaque brown with fine-bubbled, tan head that recedes to partial cover with plenty of lacing. Sweet chocolate, doughy and fruity yeast esters with some light roasty charcoal notes and fair finishing bitterness that lasts in the aftertaste. Medium body with moderate carbonation that is gently effervescent on the tongue. A good solid Belgian brown ale, not spectacular but certainly quite decent. Tulip glass. Allowed to warm from fridge temp. Bottle (BB 2/06, Half Time, Sep-05).

Nearly no head. Dark Brown color cannot see through. Malty dark cocoa aroma. Chocolate Malty taste. Tingly to the tongue. Needs a touch more alcohol. I would call this a pronounced Brown Ale more than a Belgian Ale.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - SEP 11, 2005
In the 330ml bottle from Dirty John’s Grocery. Pours a chunky dark brown with a yellow ochre head. Dark brown yeast sludge peppers the top of the head like nutmeg. Medium to he=igh carbonation. Light in body with a chalky cocoa flavor. Seriously lacking in the aroma department. This is acceptable, but not necessarily to my taste. Don’t think I would pay outrageous Iowa beer prices for another one.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - AUG 25, 2005
Dark dark brown - a lot darker than I would’ve expected, short tan head, good lacing. Aroma is sweet, with fruit and spices and powdered sugar. Flavor had a nice caramel sweetness to it and some sweet fruit towards the back. Body was smooth with tiny bubbles.

JK (4860) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - AUG 8, 2005
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

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.
