Gruut brown beer has a deep brownish colour with a golden touch and develops a delicate and stable foam. The degustation is surprising but very pleasant. The beer has character and the presence of abundantly much taste.

KansaiBeerLvrs (3431) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 21, 2015
Tasting set on draft at the brewery. Brown, made with nuts, pours a beautiful amber brown with a buttery nutty aroma. The taste is sweet butterscotch diacetyl which I am not sure if they were aiming for but for me it is a miss.

corkyrory66 (959) - BELGIUM - JUN 3, 2015
Brune à considérer moins comme une dubbel que comme une spice/herb foncée. Niveau abv de 7,5 %. Couleur brun caramel à roux moyen. Clarté nette. Bulles fines en colonne centrale spiralée, très vives. Mousse beige clair, bien crémeuse, stable à 2 mm. Arômes de malt grillé, pointe de bois exo, girofle, groseilles noires. 1ère bouche souple à veloutée, au très bel ensemble boisé, fin, bien malté. Arrière-bouche longue, assez riche. 2ème avec de très jolies nuances, mais un manque de complexité. Arrière-bouche dense, maltée. 3ème très sympa, mais sans haut niveau. Arrière-bouche idem. Longueur sans vrai envol, la même ligne. Jambes marquées. Levure douce, un peu fleurie, correcte. Alcool bien, mais à la peine sur la longueur. Finale un peu plate, sans relief. CONCLUSION : une bière de la moyenne, pas désagréable, mais sans envolée lyrique !!

Bamsen78 (4508) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - FEB 26, 2015
Bottle, courtesy of fonefan. Pours hazy ruby amber with small off-white head. Clear aroma of caramel malt and fruit, with notes of hops and cough drop. Sweet flavour of caramel malt and fruit - really sweet for the style - with some bitter notes of hops. Hints of yeast. Sweetish, fruity and estery aftertaste. Nice, although not top-notch.
