bdunhill (250) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 15, 2013
Everything the the Ecaussines Blonde isn’t is made up by the Brune. With trite but Christmas aroma made up of caramel and spices, this Belgian Brune pours dark brown with a big frothy head. It has a malty taste that leaves you licking your lips and a lingering palate that warms you from the inside! This is the reason people love Christmas so much.

Oelbas (190) - DENMARK - NOV 13, 2013
Rødbrun med gærsvæv og mørk cremefarvet skum. Umiskendeligt belgisk duft med tydelig gærdominans, lidt lakrids og maltsødme. Smagen er for blød og mangler lidt humlekant. Eftersmagen fortsætter den søde linie. Gør ikke nogen skade, men smagen lever ikke helt op til duften. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Benzai (8545) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUN 26, 2013
Bottle @ home shared with Dutchdrebus. Unclear hazy reddish color, small off - white head that diminishes instantly. Smell light to moderately malty, quite a lot of herbs or spices, I think cinnamon. Taste lightly malts, also quite a lot of herbs or spices amd some sweetness. Not my beer at all, way too much sweetness and herbs / spices for my liking.

Bottle, 8%. Tart aroma, sweet and fruity. Almost clear dark brown colour. Small stable creamy light brown head.The flavour is sweet and spicy, has some cookie, a hint of metal. The finish is quite roasted and even more spicy. Nice and flavourful and without any big flaws.

MoritzF (8562) - Bochum, GERMANY - JAN 31, 2013
(bottle, 33cl) Hazy, opaque brown colour with a beige medium-sized foamy head. Yeasty, dark malty and berry-fruity aroma with hints of caramel and strong notes of cinnamon and other x-mas spices. Moderately sweet flavour, medium to full bodied with a modest carbonation. Dark malty base with notes of dried fruits, caramel, chocolate and a strong spicy touch; moderately sweet malty and mildly fruity finish, again with loads of spices, but a well-covered alcohol. A tad too spicy for my liking, but it might work as a simple Christmas brew. 8.I.13
