GothGargoyle (945) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 19, 2012
Thanks to BelgBeerGeek for this one. Pours a dark cloudy brown with a reasonable pale head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma is caramel, heather honey, marzipan, brown sugar, chocolate pudding, Belgian abbey yeast. Creamy mouthfeel, sweet on the palate with a nice long sweet finish. Taste is brown sugar, chocolate, raisins, candi sugar, hints of liquorice and wood. Delicious, really enjoyed this one.

HenryXXX (201) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 19, 2012
Pours a brown color. Very lively out of the bottle. The nose is fig bread, dates, warm spices, and burnt sugar. The palette is a bit boozy with flavors of fig bread/cake, hints of oak, bitter chocolate and a little coffee. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bon Secours. Au secours... Flip top bottle … and a complete flip for the taste... Cette bière ne peut rien démontrer sauf un niveau de stout banal. Quels étaient les intentions de ce brasseur ? Que dire de pareilles pitreries par rapport aux brunes que l’on peut trouver parmi les bières brunes belges ? Et pourtant la couleur était jolie, les bulles étaient jolies, la mousse était jolie, les arômes étaient jolis sur la pomme de terre avec une pointe de fruits noirs (groseilles, cassis). Mais voilà, une vraie bière n’est pas que cela... Goûts très monotones sur le foin brûlé. Levure beaucoup trop soft pour une brune. Finale sans équilibre et sans originalité... Comment coter un pareil flip flop....flip top....floc floc....

Dark brown with a thick creamy head. Treacly aroma and flavours of brown sugar, toffee, dark fruits and alcohol.

BlackHaddock (3183) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2012
Tall necked brown flip-top bottle: 33cl. Poured into a Hoegaarden Grand Cru badged stemmed tulip two years before it’s best before date of July 2013. All this breweries beers seem to explode out the bottle, this one was no exception. This time I was ready for it and didn’t lose a drop, the sediment however comes up with the rest of the brew, so you get everything in the glass. Dark rustic brown body, too deep in colour to see through (plus the sediment is in there somewhere. Huge light brown head on top, which left plenty of lacing as the beer level sank during the tasting. Aroma of burnt, roasted and toasted malts, without the sweet molasses smell often found in Belgian brown ales. This isn’t a sweet brown in any way, those malts in the smell hit you hard in the taste and a tart bitterness comes along as the mouth dries: this is more complexed than your average Belgian brown. The alcohol content can be found easily enough, as the body isn’t as rich and deep as the brew indicates by looks. Still fine, but this isn’t a thick, heavy brew at all, it isn’t watery either. I enjoyed it.

BeerCast_Rich (1841) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 10, 2012
[330ml bottle, Cornelius Beer&Wine, Edinburgh] Opaque brown beer with a decent head at first, but fast-reducing. It looks disconcertingly like a glass of gravy. Thick, sweet molasses on the nose, alcohol as well. Plenty of rich, sweet flavours - sweet molasses and burnt caramel, with sweet yeast and alcohol. There’s some balance in that aftertaste, as I get plenty of umami bitterness as well. Decent enough - far nicer than the blonde [10042012]

KyotoLefty (5903) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 3, 2012
Bottle at Dolphins Umeda. Dark, dark brown, flat color, as opposed to glossy. Nice head. Slightly roasty nose of chocolate or cocoa, dried fruit, peaches. Flavor of fudge, cocoa, raisins, licorice, a bit of coffee and fresh fruit. Slightly oxidized with a slightly funky earthiness. SMooth and full with fine carbonations. Finishes dry and earthy. Interesting and nice.

zacgillbanks (1853) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - MAR 2, 2012
Bottle from Coppers in Newcastle. Very dark brown in colour which pours with a very large foamy head. Very strong candy sugar and warming red fruity favours with toffee, currants, liquorice, chocolate and strong alcohol in the finish.
