La CH’TI Brune est une bière dense et onctueuse. Sa couleur noire intense provient de malts puissamment torréfiés. Afin de profiter de toute sa saveur, nous vous conseillons de la tenir au frais et de la déguster à une température de +/- 8 °C dans son verre préalablement rincé et non essuyé.

Very dark brown. Brown head, creamy, not very stable. Nose of brown sugar and mocca. Taste is expressly liquorice and malt sugar, maybe again some mocca. Seems poorly attenuated. Watery mouthfeel, despite the malt. Aftertaste = liquorice. it is strange. Northern France is riddled with good bière de garde producers. The two topmost famous (Bénifontaine and la Choulette) brew piss-poor examples, yet everybody seems to swear by them.

Black beer in appearance, similar to a porter. The aroma is very wine orientated whereas the flavour is lightly bitter with malt and coffee elements. A reasonable beer, better than I was expecting.

Inferior to the great Belgian brunes this is merely OK.

Watery with just a hint of damp mould.

very dark brown colour, few head, liquorice and caramel, oily, full, sweet and slightly sour, the aftertaste is long but a little bit disgusting while finishing the bottle
