Also known as La Binchoise Brune with a 7.7% abv. This beer looks like it means business right from the start. It is dark red brown with a good fluffy head and has a rich spicy malt nose with a few bitter orange notes. The palate has a big hoppy bite and a rich, fruity, dark coffee character, which tries to become roasted in the finish.

Silvan7 (738) - Samarate, ITALY - OCT 13, 2014
Bottle @ home. Birra marrone con riflessi rubino, leggermente velata con schiuma beige non molto fine , ma piuttosto persistente. Aroma intenso, fruttato, di fave di cacao, frutta rossa disidratata (ribes/amarene), tostata, sui toni della liquirizia e del cacao amaro. Poco caffè. Alcool e caramello sono presenti. Gusto abboccato, poco amaro, quasi solo da tostatura, poco luppolata, cacao, frutti rossi caramello e dolcezza alcolica sono i gusti principali. Retrolfattivo di liquirizia.Leggerissima acidità. Poco corposa, poco carbonata, molto rotonda, calda. Equilibrata ed armonica.

Alengrin (2351) - BELGIUM - AUG 26, 2014
Scotch-style Belgian rather than a dubbel, with creamy, regular, beige, stable head and very dark brown colour with wine-red hue, hazy. Sweet fruitiness, banana, candied cherries, apple sauce, chocolate, brown bread, buttermilk, candi sugar, liquorice, cloves all suffering under an unpleasant DMS odour of cooked cauliflower. Malty, bready taste, candied fruits, sweetish, light coffee-like roasted bitterness in the end, a bit sticky and a bit alcoholic.

NeoHippie2 (1057) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUL 3, 2014
Copper/brown pour with a thin off-white head. Aromas of dark fruits and notes of brown sugar. Flavor is a bit thin. Not quite as robust as I was anticipating. Still a decent brew bur as good as I was hoping

Hanoi (442) - Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 25, 2014
Nose is pronounced yeast, copper, slight dark fruit. Taste is yeast, red berry, malt, bread, iron, maybe a little spice in the finish. The mouthfeel was terribly thin. I was really very disappointed in this.
