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.

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.

dornoy (701) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 6, 2005
High light brown frothy head on a dark brown body. The taste is fruity, without the bitternes on could expect from such a brew. The impression is of a easily drinkable beer, light on the palate. Weaker than on might expect, though. Acceptable beer in almost any circumstances, but not extraordinary

oberabcbbsok (691) - Hoboken, BELGIUM - NOV 4, 2007
A littel better then the blond one. Tasted on bottle. A medium bodied not to bad taste. A little to sweet

psilosophy (679) - vitry en artois, FRANCE - APR 23, 2011
Bouteille de 25cl. Couleur brune presque opaque, mousse honnète assez onctueuse. Une bière assez typée, très torréfiée, un peu au niveau du goût dans l’esprit d’une guiness mais la comparaison s’arrête là. Trouvée à Vanuxeem - Ploegstaert.

PetetheMeat (621) - Hove, DENMARK - AUG 26, 2004
brown ale, off-white tall, lasting head. Good carbonation. Sweet aroma, a bit yeasty. Very malty sweet flavour. Roasted malts. Muscovado sugar. Perfumy notes (typical french ...) A hint of dryness and hops in the finish. Somewhat dry palate. Overall easy drinking brune.

obisbeer (568) - Barcelona, SPAIN - JAN 25, 2005
Deep mahogany with thick white head. Fruit nose with some sweet malt notes. Med weight with with an incredibly light finish. Toffee, adn light fruit on the palate but reall ynot very interesting.

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.

Michael Jackson call this a Biere du Garde but it seemed more like a flavourless dubbel to me. Bought this in Maine in the fall of 2006. Page 108 of Micheal Jackson’s Great Beer Guide only 436 of his 500 Classic Brews to go.

Another gift from Silktork. I'll echo his sentiments on this brew. Way too watery, lacked the complexity of other Belgian brown ales. Sort of a vegetable and vanilla flavor that lingered. Just not a great beer ... with a strange nutrasweet aftertaste.
