Sweet candy-like aroma with notes of leather, cola and dried leaves. Dark brown, almost opaque with lasting thick cover of dense, small-bubbled, white head. Minor lacing. Sweet, cola-like, candy flavours. Very dry chalky, meaty finish. Soft, smooth palate with nice effervescence on the tongue. Bottle. Sampled with MartinT and Rastacouere.

Tobacco leaves smoked through a dark chocolate filter...Fruity coke undertones loom on the sweet malt...A dry ending with slight metallic notes decreases the initial pleasure...

Not bad, not great. Cloudy dark orange and brown. Too much black licorice in the aroma. Some fruity spiciness as well. Same goes for flavor. I like chilled Sambucca, but not really in my beer. Still decent though, just not one I would go out of my way for. Thanks anyway to Hopscotch for sharing!

Brown color. Nice malty, sweet aroma. Unfortunately it has a too thin mouthfeel, poor.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Murky, burnt orange ale with a small, creamy, light brown head. Good retention and ok lacing. The nose is bursting at the seams with licorice and pear. The flavor is of cola, and sambuca. Medium-bodied with a dry mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Lengthy, tangy, dry finish. Thanks to jbrus for the bottle!

Had this at Tapwerks in on N. Western in OKC. I found it odd that they had something on tap that I had not seen before, especially in Oklahoma. Weird. It had a deep brown appearance with a tan head. Smells like bananas, cloves, and fingernail polish. Very chemical.. Thin, tastes like some other "belgian brown ales". Metallic and thin overall. Bland.

(alias Durboyse brune) I drunk this beer in a Leffe glass and actually it looked like a brown Leffe. It's brown colour and brownish head are appealingly simular. The aroma is sweet an malt with a malty spices in the undertone. Although it seemed like a Leffe, it didn't tasted like. Very spicy and a little malty, although not dimensioneous. The aftertaste is spicy and quite long.
