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.

Shared a 33cl bottle from Cora (Luxembourg). Pours a very dark brown in colour with a tan thick head. Aroma is caramel, raisins and malt. Average carbonation and medium to full creamy body. Flavour is medium sweet and light bitter. Overall, a good beer for a winter afternoon.

McWorta (482) - LUXEMBOURG - SEP 27, 2013
Really dark amber coloured beer with a fast fading light tan head. Light CO2 pearls. Noses of wet autumn leaves, barnyard maybe some soy notes. Light-medium fizzyness with a watery very light slick texture. The taste is bitter and light sour. The body is medium and the finish lasts with a slick dryness on the palate medium term.

EddyBeer1 (760) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 17, 2013
Brune rougeâtre foncée, effervescence trop gazeuse, mousse beige tombe rapidement. Entrée en matière maltée caramel conjuguée à une bonne présence de fruits foncés, d’une légère acidité citron-orange tandis que les houblons semblent totalement absents. Manque singulièrement de corps. Une de plus!

Bière brune double de 7,7 % abv. Coloris brun très foncé. Clarté en transparence, coloris roux. Bulles en fontaine vive au centre. Mousse beige qui vient napper de soie. Arômes de café plutôt léger avec un peu de chicorée, cassis, mûre, candi brun, malt, cassonade. 1ère bouche au volume soyeux de café brun moka, prune mûre, dattes fines. Arrière-bouche plutôt maltée, mais sans complexité réelle, juste clean. 2ème bouche maltée, avec un retour d’une amertume particulière, bois de lune. Arrière-bouche pleine, agréable. 3ème bouche maltée encore davantage. On fait passer en fait l’arrière-bouche 2 en bouche 3. Donc cette bière progresse clairement. La longueur développe la plénitude de la 3ème bouche, belles notes de malt caramel. Levure très belle, soft, pas amère. L’alcool est très bien, progressif et adapté. La finale est suave, douce et plus complexe. Bière qui offre une progression remarquable à la fois gustative et en force. On est presque au niveau des toutes grandes, n’eut été le début !

Really like this one. Brown creamy head and a very creamy body to match. Lots of plum and bread notes. Lively tight carbonation. Definite winner.
