COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Bov (9245) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - NOV 30, 2001
very dark brown colour, few head, liquorice and caramel, oily, full, sweet and slightly sour, the aftertaste is long but a little bit disgusting while finishing the bottle

madsberg (10109) - Søborg, DENMARK - JUN 17, 2003
Bottled: Dark brown coloured. Quickly diminishing beige/light brown head. Aroma is vague malty and somewhat sweet. Has some caramel/chocolate notes, but they are hard to find. Flavour is very watery. Light sweet and malty. Some vague notes of chocolate. Is light bitter in the end.

Jeppe (2631) - Ølbutikken, DENMARK - JAN 19, 2004
Dark brown/red body, tall white head. Nose is malt, nut and alcohol. Flavors are roasted malt and hay with a watery aftertaste. A quite weak beer.

lachesis (756) - 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.

larsniclas (5521) - Billdal, SWEDEN - MAR 27, 2005
Bottled. DArk brown with a large and airy head. Sourish aroma with cedar-tree. Rather thin body. Sourish flavour with some grassiness and oak-charatcter.

DruncanVeasey (7097) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JAN 13, 2008
Ruby pour piled with beige. Lacy and rocky. Rusty tin aroma with brine-sodden maltloaf and grain. Slightly better than it sounds. Flavour blood, copper penny, whiskeyish grain and wholemeal. Thinner than the Blanche and annoyingly metallic. Tastes like a cheap supermarket tinned bitter.

solidfunk (3583) - 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.

JorisPPattyn (7773) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAR 19, 2003
Very dark brown. Brown head, creamy, not very stable. Nose of brown sugar and mocca. Taste is expressly liquorice and malt sugar, maybe again some mocca. Seems poorly attenuated. Watery mouthfeel, despite the malt. Aftertaste = liquorice. it is strange. Northern France is riddled with good bière de garde producers. The two topmost famous (Bénifontaine and la Choulette) brew piss-poor examples, yet everybody seems to swear by them.

argo0 (11317) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 9, 2005
(750ml bottle) There are times when I wish my quest for new beers did not lead me to beers like this one. It is not a bad beer, but considering what else I could have gotten for my $13, I am quite disappointed. Medium tan head atop a clear, dark red-brown body. Aroma is medium sweet, caramel, nutty, some raisin. Taste is moderately sweet, nutty, caramel, cola, dark fruit. Finish is nutty and light coffee. Watery light-medium body with low carbonation.

Skinnyviking (6733) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 31, 2006
Bottle. Off-white cramy high lasting and good looking head. Clear ruby head. Sweet malt aroma. Sweat malt flavor but some bitterness at the end. The looks is definately the best about the beer. The price is much too high.
