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.

ekstedt (6082) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 18, 2007
75 cl bottle at Delirium café, Göteborg, Sweden. Clear dark copper, large beige head. Onedimensional roasted earthy malt aroma, with notes of chocolate. Medium bodied with prickly carbonation. Nice fry and bitter - but short - finish.

solidfunk (5661) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - DEC 13, 2011
Taste of roast malt, a bit of alcohol. Nothing else. No real aftertaste or anything. I actually find it a bit better than the Chti blonde, though.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JUN 1, 2005
This looks like weak coffee with a fizzy light brown head that soon reduces to a mere film. It has a mild malt nose that has a tartness to it. The body is quite light, near watery. The taste is somewhat sour, malty with plums. Not much to the finish, just a mild "dirty" maltiness.

thedm (5205) - Fort Wayne, 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.

ThomasE (5174) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 25, 2004
Dark brown colour with beige foamy head. Aroma and flavor was not that clear because of a too low serving temperature. Thanks too my mother anyway, she is trying her best.

JPDIPSO (5124) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 3, 2005
Brown liquid with a taller dry bone colored head. Rather odd color head actually. Aroma say a lot. Raw grains mixed with pears, raisin, plastic, cider vinegar and lemon zest. Dirt and nut flavors abound. Some dry rot mixed in as well. Fairly thin and biting on the palate. These certainly do not live up to their billing. This should clean out the drain quite well.

JK (5123) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - MAY 30, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 14, 2006 Expensive and at the bottom of its style. This was marked down to $7 from $11. It is ok for 7. The beer is dark brown. There is light fruit in the aroma. Somewhat sweet, fruity malt like a dubbel; which is what I thought it was while drinking it. Highly carbonated with a strange spritzy quality.
