Bottle at de poshoorn. Light red brown with a khaki head. Smells of honey and cinnamon bread. Metallic flavor. Some caramel notes and a pepper finish.

fkoolen (144) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - FEB 26, 2014
Amber brown-red coloured, big beige creamy head. Sweet aroma and taste, big caramel note, dried fruits and some little bitter and sour tones. Taste doesn?t last long sadly, aftertaste?s a bit dry. Medium carbonation.

Scrapersnbeer (1439) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 23, 2014
Medicinal dark fruit aroma like some barlyewines, lots of prunes, could use more currants. Copper-amber color, lighter than it should be. Mild bitterness, lots of sugary sweetness, and some of that bloody copper found in bieres de garde. A tad cloying, light and crunchy.

Bosbouw (836) - Gemonde, NETHERLANDS - DEC 18, 2013
Mooie heldere rode kleur met een volle en blijvende kraag. Ruikt zoetig, mout en caramel. Iets gebrand. Smaakt vol zoet met iets bitter, caramel.

maekchu (1777) - Hirakata, JAPAN - NOV 1, 2013
Bottle. Fresh aroma, with considerable brown sugar and yeast. Reddish brown color. Mild roast malt initial / bit of fruity tang, prunes, and dark sugars / end fairly balanced with some bitter pushes. Medium body. Some bright flavors, but more or less a standard bruin. Okay.

KyotoLefty (5914) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 26, 2013
Bottle from Seijo Ishii in Umeda. Average caramelly brown nose, some spice. Rather flat flavor, caramel and sugar, no real character. A pretty useless Abbey Bruin really, though not offensive.

jdepelsmaeker (5) - BELGIUM - JAN 6, 2013 does not count
What a great colour. Dark ruby redness with very few foam. Taste includes hints of chocolate but all in all nothing jumps out. It left me unimpressed. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
