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.

Skinnyviking (8958) - 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.

thewolf (12136) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAY 11, 2008
Bottle @ Republikken, Kolding.
Pours deep brown with a big, creamy, slightly off-white head. Aroma is sweet, lightly roasted, some dark dried fruits and strawberry notes. High carbonation - a little light in mouthfeel. Flavour is sticky sugary sweet, weakly roasted with some chocolate and caramel. Light metallic off-flavours.

Nickls (2389) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - JUL 31, 2010
Bottle. Pours with a minimal eggshell head; deep dark brown color. Raisiny sweetness dominates the aroma; very light dark fruits as well. Some yeastiness. Taste features the raisins as well; not too sweet which is good, but is borderline. Dry biscuit finish. Thinner palate with very light carbonation and a bit sticky over the tongue. OK, but nothing terribly good either. No complexity.

rickgordon (3853) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 17, 2007
Bottled. Clear brown colour. Almost no aroma, only subtle notes of milk chocolate. Light-medium bodied with vague chocolate notes. Apart from that, nothing. Very one-dimensional.

ThomasE (5174) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 25, 2004
Dark brown colour with beige foamy head. Aroma and flavor was not that clear because of a too low serving temperature. Thanks too my mother anyway, she is trying her best.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JUN 1, 2005
This looks like weak coffee with a fizzy light brown head that soon reduces to a mere film. It has a mild malt nose that has a tartness to it. The body is quite light, near watery. The taste is somewhat sour, malty with plums. Not much to the finish, just a mild "dirty" maltiness.

Grovlam (4208) - 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.
