3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A very lively beer - it foamed over when I opened the bottle. It is black like a porter - I wouldn't call this a "brune" - I wonder if Belgium has a name for a black beer? The head is big and brown - but disappears rather quick because of the lively character. The aroma is sweet with notes of chocolate, apples, pears, and smoke - a very complex aroma. The flavor is sweet too with notes of apples and strawberries. It ends on a sweet-smoked note. The flavor is also very complex. With the color and the smoke notes - I would call this a Belgium Porter.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
[Rerate, Abbaye de Floreffe Brune, 8.0%] Dark amber, brown colour; giant thick head, wonderful lace. Nice aroma, some malt, light roasted malt, sweet.
Very good body, really powerful sensation in the mouth, quite a lot of malt, better balanced than the Triple by the bitterness, by some roasted malt bitterness and by a very light liquorice. Also the final is better than the Triple, anyway it still lacks some aromatic hop.
Pretty good and sweet example of dark abbey ale
[22-07-2002; 8-5-7-3-14] Brown colour; big thick head. Nice aroma of malt, and very nice floral hop. Good malt taste, rather sweet. Ordinary palate, with some nice hop, partially hidden.
