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.

Shaney (2425) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - APR 10, 2013
Dunkelbraun, trüb, wenig Schaum. Der Duft ist würzmalzig nach Pumpernickel und Roggenbrot. Es schmeckt auch nach geschrotetem Getreide mit leichter Hefenote, dazu ist es auch leicht spritig. Nicht mein Geschmack.

Noctilucus (106) - All over Belgium, BELGIUM - JAN 17, 2013
As La Binchoise Brune (7.7%): Unclear copper brown with quite thick and lasting beige foam Quite a fresh smell with hops, a hint of sugar, iron and some almost hidden spices; disappointingly weak nose though pleasant The taste is quite soft for a 7.7% beer, mirroring the main elements of the smell: hops though never too bitter, some spices, little sweetness, a very slight bit of iron and alcohol though again, for a beer of this strength it’s very well hidden... Overall it’s more refreshing rather than anything else, even if the aftertaste is quite full and there is the lingering feeling of a stronger beer and some alcoholic warmth in the end. In itself, a pleasant beer but it simply can’t hold its own among the dozens of Dubbels between 6 and 8%.

Nez de levures fruitées aux notes sauvages (cerises, prunes, léger de raisins), malté de caramel sucré aux notes terreuses et rôties, herbeux, légèrement épicé avec des notes de chocolat ainsi que des effluves d’alcool doux. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement fort et une texture légèrement sirupeuse. Moyen goût de levures fruitées aux notes terreuses (raisins, cerises, léger de prunes et d’agrumes) avec un léger goût épicé lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût moyennement sucré de malt du genre caramel avec des notes de sucre bonbon et puis, vient s’y rajouter graduellement un goût légèrement amer de houblon floral et herbeux aux notes sèches avec des notes de chocolat noir ainsi qu’un léger goût d’alcool doux et réchauffant. Post-goût long aux notes sèches, moyen-léger amer de houblon herbeux avec des notes d’alcool et de levures fruitées (zeste d’agrumes, pelures de raisins vineux).
