Soapy, cocoa-colored head. Copper briwn color. Slight hoppy aroma. Almost an apple sherry flavor with a little wood taste at the end.

Firemoose15 (567) - Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 21, 2005
Thanks to alobar. A second in a pair of this brewers offerings. Aroma strong astringent apple. Pour was a brownish copper. Flavor was apple and spice, definite sugar. Palate was ok I thought it finished nice. Overall not bad at all.

richlikebeer (838) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 20, 2005
lots of apple in nose, pours a bronze color with a thick foamy white head, flavor is almost a hard apple cider, but there is a strong abv component to the flavor and the aftertaste. the apple and spices were nice and sweet, but there was too much abv in this one.. thanks alot to alobar for providing the ciney trifecta...i would have to say the brune was the best of the bunch,

joergen (20558) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 14, 2005
Bottled. Brown coloured with a huge lacing beige head. Aroma of spices and dried fruits. Spicy flavour with notes of dried fruits and alcohol. Alcoholic and spicy finish. I just love dark and strong belgian beers like this.

NoiZe (2324) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - SEP 11, 2005
Nice deep red, brown colour. Very nice and complex brew. Aroma of fruits and sugar. Spict taste, gets milder if you let it stand for a little time.

pilsnerrogge (2460) - Finspång, SWEDEN - JUL 31, 2005
Burgundy coloured with a rich head. Aroma of dried fruits and brown sugar. Full bodied, fruity flavour. Way too sweet, though.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - JUL 6, 2005
25 cl Bottle. Deep dark brown colour with a nice huge head. Nice complex aroma with hints of choclate and tobacco. Good taste of notes of bitterness and some sour aftertaste. Good balance between hops and malt.

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 12, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2006 (Bottle 25 cl) Dark amber with quite a huge head. Malty but the bitter hops seems to dominate in a harsh not so pleasant way. 110893

Emil (6066) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 3, 2005
Bottle. Dark red brown colour with a big baige head. Sweet malty fruity caramel aroma and taste. Medium to full body and a sweet finish.

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 16/20
sayravai (4667) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 11, 2005
(Bottled) Deep, dark red color with a large, tight and lacy head. Nutty, sweetish-malty, syrupy rye-pudding aroma with old strawberry jam and vanilla. Quite hoppy, winous and slightly alcoholic, sweetish-malty flavor. Fruity and slightly sugary. Medium to full-bodied, quite carbonated palate. Hides the ABV well. An enjoyable dessert brew with some scotch ale character. Nice!
