COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Bottle 33cl, bb 10/2013. Cuivrée, fin beige, col beige. Arôme est malté, fruité noir, pointe de caramel et d’épices. Palais malt grillé-caramel, profil reste très belge, herbacé et épicé. Fruité noir et sucre brun. Haute effervescence avec ce côté réglisse, malt cara. Léger cannelle?

Bottle shared at a tasting at kerenmk’s place. Thanks Hansen & Zita for this bottle. As La Binchoise Brune. Sweet hazy brown with a fruity beige head. Aroma of malt, yeast, a bit of stale chocolate, rotten fruits and some vegetal notes. Sweetish and slightly acidic weird flavor. Medium-bodied, kinda alcoholic. Unpleasant.

drowland (6144) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - APR 1, 2012
4/1/12 (no joke!). 750mL bottle... one of the very few beers left at my work that I haven’t had before. Slightly hazy brown pour with a nice brown head that fades to a film but lasts forever and laces a ton. Fruity, estery aroma hits first with touches of sour and plenty of maltiness with a touch of caramel and roast. Malty, roasty flavor with touches of caramel and then a big spicy yeast hit with lingering fruitiness. A bit thin and light, but the alcohol is hidden well. Not bad.

magdalar (513) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - JAN 17, 2012
Bottle, labeled La Binchoise Brune 7.7%, with a best-by date of 22/04/10 -- most likely way past it’s prime. Pours a dark cloudy brown with a beige head. Smells of lighter fruits, and metal, with quite some hay and bready yeast. Tastes pretty awesome; a medium sweetness with spices reminiscent of a cinnamon cookie, and some mildly tart fruitiness. Medium bodied. Light carbonation. Ends abruptly, with a sugary finish.
