3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle 33 cl) Hazy, dark brown with a vague, reddish tint and a dense, beige head leaving some lacework. Fat aroma of hard roasted malts - lightly burned actually. Quite a full body with plenty of burned malt, lightly sweet with an underlying spiciness and then a burned, slightly ashy finish. Quite decent but atypically Belgian with these almost stout-like characteristics. 180807

[Sampled at DØE-festival, Valby, 2007 with svoger.]
One of the firstone’s at that wonderful day. With fruitnotes to take away the heavy burned expectations of this days beers. Complex and full of ingredients. Dark, yeasty and very belgian in its way. Quite good!

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. As I poured the beer I thought it was a stout. Pitch black colour with a small short lasting head....good stouts do have heads. Aroma of smoke and roasted malt, chocolate, liquorice, dark fruits and some alcohol. Good lacing. Nice mouthfeel. The flavour has a roasty maltiness, liquorice, chocolate, dark fruits, coffee, alcohol and spices. Sweet roasty finish with an alco touch. The very best Saison I have tasted.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: AUG 20, 2007 CBF07 sample from bottle. Presented as Tourney Brune, should have been named Black Hole according to Ralf from Det Belgiske Hus. Pours deep brown. Nose is liqourice and malty, clear yeast presence with raisins and prunes, classical belgian. Flavour is malty, coffee and roasted malt with a vague uplifting note. Good spicy and sweet finish.
2007-08-18 33 cL bottle (as Tournay de Noël). Pours deep brown with a red hue and light brown head. Chocolate note, slight spiced and minor liqourice nose. Liqourice finish to a beer that starts with a chocolate smoothness. Slight bitterhops note. Spiced. Nice and slight warming. 7 4 7 3 14 = 3,5.
I’m in doubt if the Tourney Brune is identical to the Tournay de Noël
