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.

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 (9410) - 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 (4078) - 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?

brownyonder (266) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 3, 2011
Pours a cloudy brown with a thin creamy white head. Smells of banana bread. Banana, yeast and malt in the mouth. Lighter than I expected.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 30, 2011
On keg at Bacchus, Newcastle. Pours a hazel colour with a decent yellowish head. Typical Belgian dubbel aroma, fruity with blueberries, caramel, chocolate and yeast. Flavours of blueberries again, yeast, apple, barley and caramel. Light carbonation with a little CO2 prickle. Foamy mouth-feel. OK but a little thin.
