Pours dark brown , rather small white foam Smell is nothing . Roasted malts ? Don’t think so ... Low carbo ( which is good ! ) Taste has some nice things, for sure . Dark malts , some chocolate , some coffee notes ( all from the dark malts ) Rather sweet. Its good, best gaverhopke so far ! Would like it intencer , though ... especialy for this abv , its very , very weak

Une bière de 9,7 % abv, et le feu du diable à gauche de l’étiquette, on est averti... Et pourtant, celle-ci mettra bien du temps à révéler sa force... en finale. Signalons aussi que son nom est très mal choisi !! Couleur acajou très jolie. Apparence transparente. Bulles très fines, mais très disséminées, et pas nombreuses. Mousse beige claire qui tombe très vite, et nappe à peine. On peut quasiment dire que la bière est plate, mais vu le niveau abv, on ne peut lui reprocher. Arômes de prune jeune, cassis, pointe de noisette, whisky en fût de sherry, pointe d’amande. 1ère bouche souple sur du malt plutôt caramel que torréfié... Arrière-bouche courte et une légère épice. 2ème bouche aussi sur des malts caramels. 3ème bouche agréable mais très « mince ». Arrière-bouche plus tranchée sur un alcool en fût, et des myrtilles. Sur la longueur il faut attendre les arrière-bouches pour avoir les « vraies » saveurs. La levure est un peu épicée, un peu boisée, mais pas du niveau requis par ce genre. L’alcool vient lentement au travail, pas marqué à son niveau, sauf en finale. La finale donne toujours l’impression claire, mais le fond passe vite en avant avec l’alcool. CONCLUSION : on ne comprend pas comment cette bière de 9,7 abv a des bouches aussi minces !! Seules les arrière-bouches révèlent les saveurs... On dirait un théâtre de marionnettes !! Mais il y a en arrière et en finale de vraies saveurs. Paradoxe … d’autant plus qu’il n’y a aucune saveur de burned brown !!!

Not sure why this is called Burned Brown, it states on the bottle "Traditional high fermented beer with burned malts", but I don’t get the roast malts, and the colour is fairly light. That said, this is still a very enjoyable beer, if a little on the sweet side for my taste. Overall, I would certainly have this beer again, but wouldn’t go to any great lengths to get hold of it.

Bottle 330ml @ fonefan
Gusher.. Pours hazy amber with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, yeast, dried fruits, caramel and alcohol. Taste is medium to heavy sweet and light bitter with a long warm and dried fruity finish. Body is full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

erickok (4296) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - OCT 6, 2014
Brown body, almost headless, not pretty. Sweet malts, barley wine like dry fruit, roasted bit not thick, not smoked. Simpler taste, soft bitterness only, mostly sweet malts and a bit too sticky. Too sugary for me, even though it packs a lot of flavour. (33cl bottle at Nüetnigenough)

Bottle @ benzai. Copper colour with a small beige head. Smells farty, malty, sweet. Tastes slightly roasty, hint of chocolate, sweet. Decent. Medium body, soft carbo.

Abio (1773) - Waasland, BELGIUM - MAY 10, 2014
Roasted malts, a bit simple and uninteresting brew, but it is OK. It could use a small boost.

JorisPPattyn (8429) - Ursel, BELGIUM - AUG 7, 2014
Small yellow-cream head, fast gone over reddish murky-brown beer. Fruity, bit alcoholic nose, but fleetingly. Soon replaced by chocolate, wood and a touch of black cardamom peel. Again chocolate and wood-y; more peel and lightly roasted malts. Rather neutral, faint malty sweetness, some dry, near-bitterish overtones. Feels quite carbonated. Medium bodied and slick. Light in body and surprisingly mild for its claimed 9.7% ABV. Not bad, really. I had been fearing worse, but there is still something worthwhile in Stasegem.
