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.

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JAN 13, 2008
Ruby pour piled with beige. Lacy and rocky. Rusty tin aroma with brine-sodden maltloaf and grain. Slightly better than it sounds. Flavour blood, copper penny, whiskeyish grain and wholemeal. Thinner than the Blanche and annoyingly metallic. Tastes like a cheap supermarket tinned bitter.

schuimkroaat (427) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JUL 14, 2007
25 cl bottle, ’bbe’ Oct 07. Dark chocolate brown, dark ruby red when held against the light. Small, beige lace. Modest nose of caramel and a whiff of burned malts. A sweetish touch of pralinés noisettes. The taste is much drier, with pronounced bitter notes - dark malts, bitter chocolate rather than hops. An earthy touch retronasally. Medium bodied.

talon1117 (1152) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 14, 2007
Bottled 01-06. Pours a dark brown color with hints of red and an average, beige, fizzy-rocky head; it is mostly diminishing leaving minimal scattered lacing. Nose is fairly one dimensional with light chocolate, prune, and hints of earthy hazlenut. Flavor is similar with dominant prune, toffee, earthy notes, soy sauce, and a bit of a stale tone. Palate is light to medium, moderate to lively carbonation, but still silky feeling. Finishes with some lightly roasted notes coming into play bringing just enough bitterness with some lingering prune notes. Not a bad beer, but lacking any depth or dimension. Not as focused or as delicate as some of the better examples of the style. Would not buy again but still an intriguing style.
