corkyrory66 (885) - BELGIUM - MAY 22, 2015
Brune de haute fermentation, refermentée, avec 3 malts et 3 houblons, travaillée en agriculture bio, d’un niveau abv de 7 %, plato à 16°, ebu à 21. Mon exemplaire avait dépassé la date indiquée de 2 mois. Couleur ambre foncé à roux clair (60 ebc) . Clarté nette. Bulles fines en fontaines partout dans le bocal, très vives. Mousse beige clair bien crémeuse, stable à 2 mm. Arômes sur un superbe ensemble malt grillé/fruits mûrs/épices/bois. 1ère bouche très souple, à la très belle entame maltée, avec des épices et une belle amertume. Arrière-bouche pleine, nette, dense. 2ème au très bel équilibre malt/houblon. Arrière-bouche bien goûteuse, avec un petit côté vineux. 3ème sur du malt cara et des herbes en avant, mais les houblons suivent. Arrière-bouche agréable, fine, nuancée, mais un peu aqueuse. Longueur un peu en-dessous des 1ères bouches. Jambes groupées, finement marquées. Levure avec quelques points positifs, mais un peu légère. Alcool correct pour une double, travaille l’ensemble. Finale agréable, mais sans vrai envol. CONCLUSION : excellentes 1ères bouches de cette double, qui faiblit malheureusement sur la longueur, mais reste très agréable.

Countbeer (5308) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - JUL 6, 2011
Draught @ OBM’11: Small medium tan creme head on top of a light hazy brown colored beer. Smell malts, sweets, spices, barleys and a hint of cinnamon. Taste brown spices, toasted malts, liquorice, grains, hops, raisin, some sweets but more bitter. Bitter sweet aftertaste. Low carbo, fuller body, soft mouthfeel and a light sticky texture.

MaartenRF10 (1711) - Wageningen, NETHERLANDS - NOV 23, 2011
Verrassend lekker bruin bier, die qua smaak in de richting van een goeie quadrupel gaat. Blijft daar in alcoholpercentage en volheid wat bij achter, maar dat neemt niet weg dat dit een heerlijk bier is. Smaak is die van chocolade en overrijp fruit. Warmbruin en troebel. En ook nog eens veel biologische ingrediënten. Een aanrader!

Icedwarf (716) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - MAR 8, 2015
Roodbruim bier met schuim. Smaak is zoet en licht bitter, noten en bessen chokolade en caramel. Versie met BRWN etiket gedronken, smaak blijft redelijk lang hangen.

tderoeck (6212) - Gent, BELGIUM - OCT 22, 2010
18/10/2010 - 75cl bottle @ home

Note: the beer had been aged for 6 months

Pours a pretty clear darkbrown beer, beige creamy and adhesive head. Aroma holds caramel, chocolate, alcohol, dried fruits. MF is ok, nice carbon, full body (due to aging?). Taste has caramel, mocha, red berries, roasted malts. Aftertaste more caramel and roasted malts with some spices.

yngwie (15381) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 17, 2011
Bottle, 33cl, at Oud Arsenaal. A big, light tan head sits on top of an unclear brown body. Lacings. Dried fruits, dark sugars, some cigar smoke, cellar and herbs. The flavor is quite sweet, yet it is dry, with dark malts, dark sugar, dried fruits, and caramel. Slightly oxidised. Full-bodied and smooth. Lasting finish. 110429
