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.

Hansen (7051) - Assentoft, DENMARK - JUL 21, 2012
Poffed out of the bottle, almost half of the beer ended on the table and floor. And I didn’t shake it. Dark brown, hazy. Has an off-white head, medium duration. Nice aroma, malty, caramel, soy-sauce. Flavor is starting malty sweet, complex notes, nuts, caramel, real nice. Creamy texture and soft carbonation.

benbjo (3) - NORWAY - JUN 27, 2012 does not count
reddish-brown color. Slightly fruity aroma. Light sweet taste with a short bitter end. Average carbonation. A little watery. As a Nøgne Ø beer its less full of flavor than other beers from the same brewery, but I like it exactly because of this and move love of brown ales in general

DanielBrown (3980) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 16, 2012
Bottle from Stirchley Wines, Birmingham. Pours a dark chestnut Brun. Smell is gentle choc. Flavour us pretty subtle, pretty smooth, with correct mouth thickness. Slightly watery, but a pleasant aftertaste. A little like a Uk cask Porter. Nice, but lacks a little sharpness. Doesn’t taste the strength.

Pours dark brown with a tanned head. Can’t make out any aroma on these ales. Good for this style, imo.

Idiosynkrasie (4356) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAY 15, 2012
500ml bottle. Cloudy redish dark amber colour with average frothy lacing tan head. Malty aroma, some milk chocolate, hay, an earthy and mossy note. Diversified taste, a sweet malty strain, dark berry tart, this milk chocolate and hay mixture again as continous "middle" strain. Dry, slightly herbal finish that may arouse from fruit parings.

DeliriumT (368) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAY 5, 2012
This is a surprisingly average nogne-o beer. It is an enjoyable Belgian style ale but lacks the flavour you expect from their beers.
