0.33L bottle brought home from Brussels, labelled as ’’Sur-les-Bois Biére Brune’’. Ouch, a gusher! The remaining liquid pours a nice looking dark ruby, with a low coarse-bubbled beige head. Rich aroma of dark dried fruits. Caramel tones, some alcohol too, and a whiff of almonds/marzipan. Taste on the sweet side. Lots of dark dried fruits and candy-sugary malt sweetness. Also some yeast tones, and a spicy touch. A little more than medium full. Oily to sticky texture. Short, sweet and warming finish. Not outstanding, but a reliable Belgian.

From the bottle at the Bilbo Baggins Stilwater/12% Imports dinner on Friday November 12, 2010. Served in a wine glass. First off, I love the artwork and the representative of 12% had a nice story behind it. Pours a nice crimson brown color with a bit of plum coloring in there as well. Half-finger off-white head without any lacing. The nose is cherry with a little bit of light fruit. Some noticeable alcohol in there as well. There is a slight spice with a bit of what I picked out as juniper, though after being told could recognize it as slight pine and spruce. The taste is really interesting with a bit of spicy spruce as well as light black licorice and a bit of caramel. Nice pine notes. The spice pervades the body, which is medium and pretty nice. Quite interesting and fairly tasty, but not something I’d want all that much of. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 11-14-2010

Pours chestnut brown with a thin beige head. Aroma is sweet and malty with heavy raisins and raspberries. Flavor is very sweet and a tad sour. Medium body with a great mouthfeel. Rolls around the tongue.

keepersj12 (3019) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - MAR 5, 2011
Very nice aroma of dark fruit and molasses. The pour is dark amber with a small tan head. The flavor is plum, prunes, bad grapes and other expired fruit but in a good way. Everything comes together very nicely. A good brew but not outstanding.

mansquito (4649) - Nueva York, New York, USA - DEC 18, 2010
New Beer Distributors, NY 11.2oz ($3): Amber brown body with a pretty nice looking head. Delightful fruity aroma, with raspberry, a bunch of malts, and the yeast. Taste really brings out the sour raspberry elements of this beer. Somewhat sweet as well. Nice and tart. Carbonated mouthfeel is amenable to my tastes. Not overly heavy-bodied. Was a very pleasant surprise as a random buy. High alcohol covered well. I think if anything, this beer is under-rated on this site.

Bottle (33 cl) from Etre Gourmet. Beautiful ruby aroma with a creamy tan head. Unfortunately, the (spicy) aroma does not match the appearance.

Bottle, bought @ EG.
Muddy brown with a slight red hue. Medium, staying, frothy, yellowish head. Heavy aroma, lots of fresh prunes, liquorice root, coriander, a touch of chocolate and vanilla. Very fresh. Highish carbonation, good dry mouthfeel with some underlying creaminess. Flavour is herbal, some liqourice again, prunes, figs. Light warming and softly vinious. Coriander, vanilla again, chocolate. Very different from other brunes, but really good for it.
