Brun er en upasteurisert og ufiltrert belgisk type ale. Øl fra Nøgne Ø er flaskegjæret, noe som medfører at man bør behandle flasken med varsomhet før servering, slik at sedimentene ikke forstyrres. Brun har en fin fruktighet som er balansert opp mot god maltsødme. Anbefalt serveringstemperatur 8 grader C. La det bygge en skumtopp. Vi anbefaler Brun som en god kompanjong til vellagrede oster, alternativt ulike kjøttretter.

delnoche (484) - Alamogordo, New Mexico, USA - MAR 14, 2013
50cl bottle poured into a Chimay Trappist glass. Aroma is yeast and candy sugar. Flavor is standard Belgian ale. It is good but nothing to write home about. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bathory (458) - Bryne, NORWAY - JAN 14, 2013
Pours a brown colour with a one-finger tan head. Aroma of caramel, yeast and some mild nutty notes. Flavour is a bit boring to me, caramel, nuts, leaves and some dough maybe. Medium body with a soft mouthfeel and soft carbonation. An okey beer, but a bit boring

ElDesmadre (2507) - Mikołów, POLAND - SEP 10, 2012
Bottle, traded with Palme, many thanks! Dark brown-ruby with a medium head. Aroma is initially some soy sauce, then caramel and licorice, some milk chocolate. Hints of wet earth, forest fruit and coffee. Interesting though a bit tame. Rather dry taste with a light to medium, malty-hoppy bitterness. A fruity-coffee-chocolate aftertaste. Nice, velvety carbonation. A bit too dry for my liking given the aroma profile.

Theydon_Bois (14316) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2012
Bottle at home - 05/09/12. Pours a clear mid brown with a decent off-white head that retained fairly well. Nose is malts, nuts, toffee and a little woodiness and a pinch of cinnamon. Tastes of brown sugar, malt, prunes, toffee and a little nutty and a crumb or two of biscuit. Medium bodied with soft carbonation, perhaps a little over carbonated. Medium sweet finish. A little thin.

Holmen1 (3924) - Stavanger, NORWAY - AUG 27, 2012
Flaske fra Polet, batch 752 (brygget 01/12). Fint beige skum som varer. Diskret aroma, og smaken er behagelig med sjokolade som hovedinntrykk, men med liten munnfølelse, noe vandig og kort ettersmak. Ikke blandt mine NØ-favoritter. Kanskje bedre til mat?
