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.

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.

hotstuff (4874) - 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.

Dalle (1145) - Skørping, DENMARK - JUN 20, 2003
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...

RichardGretton (4654) - 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.

Frank (4026) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 1, 2003
Translucent dark brown with a diminishing tan head with little lace. Smells great--almost bock-y with a molasses edge. I'm wondering if this is bottom fermented. Highly carbonated and somewhat light bodied with a little bit of bite. Sweetly earthy. Slightly bitter, slightly sticky finish with a slight alcoholic edge.

psilosophy (680) - 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.
