UPDATED: FEB 12, 2015 Kristoffel Brune, uitgeschonken in 25 cl. Leffe glas. Helder roodbruin mahonie kleurig, met beige wat dunne schuimkraag, die ook snel weer inzakt. De geur is niet verkeerd, gebrande mout, karamel. De smaak is zacht zoet, met tonen van mout, karamel en rozijnen, lichte hopsmaak, wel een beetje waterig, maar desondanks is de alcohol van 6% wel aanwezig. De afdronk is karamel, koffie, en ook een wat metalige nasmaak. Geen verkeerde dubbel, deze Kristoffel Brune, een tikje saai van smaak, haalt niet het niveau van de Leffe Brune, en zeker niet de diepgang van Westmalle Dubbel. Maar navenant de prijs zeker niet slecht, kan je best meerdere van drinken. Mooi zuiver bier van brouwerij Martens.

Douberd (2809) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JAN 17, 2015
(Kristoffel Brune) Bottle 330 ml from Aldi supermarket, served into a tulip. ABV 6% Brown colour on the body, small and frothy tan head, with low retention, leaving light lacing behind. Aroma of caramel, red fruits, marmalade, sugar. Taste of caramel, red fruits, forest fruit bubblegum, sugars, metallic notes on the finish. Medium thin body, highly carbonated. Okay beer, I expected much worse.

Maakun (960) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 21, 2014
Bottle. Nice dark brown color with small off white head. Light yeast, plums, raisins and light toasted malts. Light taste with some sweetness and very light bitter finish. Nothing special but nothing offensive either.

33 cl. bottle @ home, gift from Sinterklaas who bought it @ the local Aldi supermarket because I have been such a good boy. Clear brown with a beige head. Malty aroma with caramel. Rather one-dimensional but somewhat decent. Short metallic aftertaste.

Bottle. Ruby red, brown color. Nice foam head. Looks perfect. Aroma is a nice blend of alcohol (barley wine), bitterness from malts, some prunes. Taste is relatively sweet: some bubblegum, little barley wine, slight metal flavor, oily. Nothing robust really, probably because of the relatively low alcohol pct. Considering the modest price, however, really not bad. Would gladly have a second.

bierkoning (10725) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - DEC 5, 2014
Bottle. Thanks Rob H! Dark brown color. Soft caramelly aroma. malty sweet caramelly flavor with apple. Lacks character.

ZupaKino (34) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 4, 2014
Geur van ijzer en mout. Compact schuim dat snel verdwijnt. Zoetig, iets nootachtig, verder metalig. Weinig nasmaak.

33cl flesje via Aldi, Maastricht Alcoholpercentage van 6% Uitgeschonken in Grimbergen glas Uiterlijk: hazelnootkleurig met degelijke witte schuimkraag Aroma en smaak: zoet, caramel, bittertje, ijzer Conclusie: massaproductie van Martens (Schultenbrau o.a.), maar het is geen bocht ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Alengrin (2722) - BELGIUM - AUG 25, 2014
Dark counterpart of Kristoffel Blond, also since 2013, and I’m not sure if this is better. It has an off-white, sticky head and clear bronze colour, an aroma of caramel, pear, walnuts, rhubarb, brown sugar and iron, and a taste which lacks complexity, showing some dried fruitiness, smooth caramelly and nutty malts but not much body and a metallic, watery, quickly fading finish. Well, a little bit better, alright.

Better than others would have you believe. A rich, tannin strong brune. Chocolate, toffee etc. solid.
