COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

sayravai (4673) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 7, 2012
(Bottled, rated 2011-06-16, Batch 586 (1.2.2011)) Somewhat hazy dark brown with a small, but lasting head. Candi-sugary-malty nose also presents some vegetably-sewery notes. Flavor is a bit better, with malty - although slightly worty - sourish and dried-fruity notes. Not even close to a real Belgian beer, though. Almost medium body, quite carbonated, slightly stingy. Either a bad bottle, or bad attempt to brew a Belgian beer.

johndoughty (4004) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 22, 2011
Bottle. Dark brown.Exploded out of the bottle-not a good start.Slight nutiness but very little real flavour.From the start to the finish this was very disappointing.

mkel07 (3566) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - OCT 21, 2011
500ml bottle. Rich dark colour like a christmas pudding. Flat layer of tan foam and fruity aromas of prunes and currants. Well balanced flavours with a complex mix of fruit and malt. A good beer to sit and sip.

altonbrownd (3681) - Brussels, BELGIUM - OCT 14, 2011
Bottle from Bierkoning. Dark brown body with small head. Nose of caramel, yeast, citrus. Taste is caramel and malts. Nice texture that is fizzy, but also well-rounded. Quite smooth overall. Nicely done.

GT2 (8556) - San Diego County, California, USA - SEP 21, 2011
Tap at Paradiso Dupont. The pour is a muddy, murky deep brown with a thin white head. Really no head formation. Nose is pretty muted. Mild berries and fruit juice. Taste is similar- very thin fruit juice with prickly carbonation. Very odd. Goes quite chalky and intensely bitter with small cinnamon spice. But really odd. Perhaps over attenuated? Certainly inoffensive but really doesn’t bring forth a lot of discernible character. If given to me in a Juicy Juice box, I would probably not once stop to think if I had been secretly given beer.

AshtonMcCobb (2715) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 6, 2011
50cl bottle. Pours an opaque coffee colour with a decent head. The nose is chocolatey with a slight burnt coffee note. The taste is more of the same but the coffee is dominant this time. The palate is good - nice texture after a medium sized body and then cleans ok. Overall, yep another great reproduction of a style by Nogne. Is there any style they can’t do?
