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.

lusikka (6264) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 14, 2011
500 ml bottle @ Olutravintola Pikkulintu. Brygget 01.02.2011, BBE 01.02.2014. Batch #586.
Pours a reddish brown colour with a white foamy head, mainly on the edges. Aroma of mild sour fruits, nuts and some citrus. Flavour of citrus, dried fruits, toasted malts and toffee. Medium bodied with a thick mouthfeel and a dry, fruity finish. Pleasant but quite far from your favourite Belgian Ale.

Boutip (4726) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 8, 2011
Bottle: Poured a dark brown color ale with a nice foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of candi sugar and dark caramel malt with light dry raisins. Taste is a nice mix between some candi sugars with dark Belgian malt with light fruity ester with dry raisins notes. Body is quite full with good carbonation and some good lacing. Very well brewed and more complex then I had anticipated.

Glouglouburp (6022) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 8, 2011
In short: A relatively heavy (for a 6% beer) nutty brown ale.
How: Bottle 500ml. Consumed relatively fresh a few weeks after receiving through private importation, a little more than 3 years before expiration date!!! A 6% brown ale with a 3+ years shelf time?!?!?
The look: Mostly clear dark brown body topped by a small beige head
In long: A bit of a gusher. Nose of tobacco leafs, toasted hazelnuts and some toffee. Taste has a lot of grainy malts, cookies, caramel, oily hazelnuts, commercial milk chocolate bar, creamy earthy toffee, chewing tobacco. Oily mouthfeel. That beer packs quite a hefty malted body for a 6% brew. Carbonation was a bit too much at first but I let the beer sit for 15 minutes and then it was fine. Overall this was a fine nourishing brown ale even if a bit on the oily side of things. Another decent beer. So many decent beers out there to drink. Too little time to drink them all. What would Jesus do I’m asking you, what would Jesus do? Probably try to feed the fish of my computer screen saver.
