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.

DuffMan (9542) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 1, 2006
Dark walnut brown, small tan head. Weak aromas of chocolate, maybe a nutty character too. Not nearly as impressive as the ambree, but not bad.

bluevegie (3071) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 1, 2006
Deep dark ruby body with a compact, lasting, light tan head. Full malt aroma with notes of broth and caramel. Medium body, smooth taste that is a little nutty, pepper, a little liquorice but not too much more.

Tobias10 (99) - London, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2005
Great bottle, looks like its going to be something special. It isnt. Cork came out with a bit of a bang. Dark beer with less body than a Mild.

yngwie (16507) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 30, 2005
Bottled (75cl) Dark brown with beige head. Massive pressure on the bottle. Cellar-like aromas. Light sweetness in flavor, with a quite gassy mouthfeel. Small bitterness in the finish. (051104)

hotstuff (4864) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - OCT 29, 2005
Corked and caged bottle. Large fizzy tan head that was mostly lasting, fine-small sized bubbles, fair lacing, transparent, carbonated, and a reddish brown hue. Aroma was malty, caramel, and sweet and ditto for the flavor. Smooth mouthfeel. Medium body. Nicely done and worthy of a try IMMHO.

thedm (5668) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - SEP 16, 2005
This corked and caged bottled brew with a cork marked 2-27 poured a foamy large sized light brown colored head of finely sized mostly lasting bubbles that left behind a very dark caramel brown colored semi-transparent softly carbonated body and a good lacing. The aroma was nice with sweet caramel malty notes. The mouth feel was initially mildly tingly with a sweet smooth finish. The flavor contained notes of sweet caramel malts.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 2, 2005
(Bottle 75 cl) Very dark brown, almost close to black. Full body with notes of roasted malt and chocolate. Sweetish with a discreet, bitter palate.

argo0 (13235) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 9, 2005
(750ml bottle) There are times when I wish my quest for new beers did not lead me to beers like this one. It is not a bad beer, but considering what else I could have gotten for my $13, I am quite disappointed. Medium tan head atop a clear, dark red-brown body. Aroma is medium sweet, caramel, nutty, some raisin. Taste is moderately sweet, nutty, caramel, cola, dark fruit. Finish is nutty and light coffee. Watery light-medium body with low carbonation.
