Trying this for the first time. Always liked the Blonde and the Brown doesn’t disappoint. Can’t say I taste the "bitter" though, but maybe that’s because I drink a lot of bitter beers.

Enjoyed at the end of our cruise in Barcelona. Dark brown ale with tan head and lacing. Bold well balanced and flavorful Abbey ale... Very nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MSBrindbergs (212) - Solna, SWEDEN - JUL 7, 2014
Flaska på O'learys Norrtull. Mycket mörk rödbrun vätska med ett gräddigt smutsvitt skum. Doftar hederlig begarjäst, skumbanan och sirap. Smak av torkad frukt och lite rostat. En balanserad beska på det, bra öl!

phaleslu (6204) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 29, 2014
330 ml bottle from The Party Source. One of those fairly common beers I just hadn’t gotten around to yet, so I’m making up for it. Pours a deep amber color with a moderate beige head that stays for quite a while. Rising carbonation is also visible in the brew. Notes of dates, figs, brown and candi sugar, rich cake, toffee, and a little earth. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sweet, rich mouthfeel. Good dubbel.

adster (120) - HUNGARY - JUN 28, 2014
Sötétbarna színű teste fény felé tartva rubinvörös árnyalatot csillant meg, erre telepszik rá krémszerű habja, mely viszonylag hamar elmúlik. Illata gazdag és összetett, a hőmérséklet emelkedésével változik egy jellegzetes, rágógumis és üde gyümölcsös irányból egy tompább, karamelles, aszalt gyümölcsös jelleg felé. Íze szintén karamell, kávé karakterét vegyíti az érett gyümölcsök, mazsola és némi tejszín zamatával, mely ízkavalkád idővel egyre összeszedettebbé válik. Ezt az édeskés jellemvonást egyébként remekül ellensúlyozza egy csipetnyi bors és leheletnyi komló éle a végízében. Csakúgy, mint a világos változata, e típus összhatása sem marad el túlságosan a drágább belga darabok nyújtotta ízélménytől, így ezért az árért mindenképpen kitűnő vételnek számít.

Brun med medium skum. Aromaen er gjćr, vanilje, noe třrket frukt, litt pepperkaker og malt. Smaken er stort sett det samme, medium konsistens. Mild bitterhet.

From bottle, pours a reddish brown with a big foamy beige head. Aroma is caramel and Belgian yeast. Taste is caramel, roasted malts, moderately bitter, and a little thin. Medium mouthfeel. Lightly bitter aftertaste.
