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.

UPDATED: MAR 10, 2016 Surprisingly rich aroma for a French brune, with raisin and fig like sweetness as well as a more malty (and even roasted) tone. Belgian dubbel like, but not as dry and with a cleanliness that?s odd for such a fruity beer. Even some bubblegum notes. Nice warming taste, not too little alcohol -- this should have some heat to balance the spiced malts. And a good hoppy, albeit classic bite to it too. Very foamy carbonation which I enjoy a lot, countering the alcohol and toast. Only the ending is a bit abrupt and simpler, but I guess it only sets you up for another sip. (33cl bottle from Saveur Bière)
