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.

Hildigöltur (5104) - København, DENMARK - JUL 18, 2003
Dirt brown. Very boring. Sweet and one dimensional. Short lasting aftertaste. Don't bother.

jaghana (4949) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - MAR 9, 2012
Bottle 25cl, a dark beer with low head. Nose is malty with caramel, chocolate and licorice notes. Aroma is very sweet with caramel and brown bread notes and metallic with nutty finish, body is less complex. The beer is more a German Dunkel than any thing else, not bad just too sweet, finish is hopy and with high carbonation.

presario (4901) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 4, 2006
Another bottle from Poperinge’s Quebec trip. Fluffy brown head. Thick dark brown beer. Quickly thinning head leaves strong lacing. Vinegar like aroma similar to a Flemish Brown. Lightly airy body. Flavour is a mix of brown ale and Flemish. Light chocolate notes. Some grapes and cherries a the back of the palate.

sayravai (4700) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 17, 2004
(Bottled) Clear, dark reddish color with a very small head. Sweetish, sugary-malty aroma. Sweet, syrupy, slightly nutty flavor. Medium-bodied, very light palate (especially considering the color and style). Low carbonation. Another one in the Ch’ti series with exactly the same basic aroma and flavor. Still no yeast and nowhere near the Belgian counterparts.

tiggmtl (4545) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 7, 2004
Toasty malt aroma. Dark borwn, almost opaque with very shy off-white head that recedes to thin cover. Sweet lightly malty, nutty. Thin body. Ultimately forgettable. Bottle (sampled at Mondial 2004).

hotstuff (4532) - 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.

RichardGretton (4469) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 5, 2003
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.

Grovlam (4187) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 11, 2006
Bottle. Dark brown color with a medium slightly fluffy like head. Quickly disappeared and left not noticeable lacing. Aroma was light malty with notes like caramel, toasted, spices. Maybe some hops can be detected in there as well. Body is surprisingly weak, and texture is very thin. Flavor is slightly sweet, with a light sweet finish. Not very exciting beer.
