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.

(on bottle)What is it with a beer so weak? Biere de garde is weak bber for this brewhouse? Hm, nothing, but a nice deep brown color here. And we really tried, a whole bottle and we diden´t find any body.

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.

Light brown head that quickly diminishes leaving small lace. Very dark red-brown colou. Malt, raisins and chocolate in the aroma. Medium to full body. Taste is mostly sweet and chocolate, nice, but lacking a little something...

lachesis (757) - St Idesbald, BELGIUM - AUG 24, 2004
Intens dark brown beer with beige colored head. It has sweet and burnd aroma’s with hints of chocolat, expresso and old colheita port. The taste is rather thin, again with touch of coffee and roasted malts, it ends with a light sweet and dry burnd bitterness.
