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.

UPDATED: JAN 20, 2009 50 cl bottle at Cardinal, Stavanger. Dark brown color, nice beige head. Aroma is typical Belgian; spices and yeast, but also malt. Flavor is moderate sweet malty, fruit, yeast and spices, with hints of hoppy bitterness. Not a kicking beer from NØ, but very drinkable. Maybe too fresh; I will rate it again when it´s released at Vinmonopolet in a couple of months.

Aroma was typical brown ale. Smoked leaves, caramel, and pumpkin seed. Poured brun with white lacing. Tasted like a brown ale. Brown sugar, roasted caramel and a slight pine hop. Very light in the mouth and taste. Forgettable.

Draft at Farmers Cabinet. Hazy brown pour. Slim tan foamy head. Sour brown fruit. Cigarettes. Prunes. Hemp. Burlap. Bark. Brown sugar - but more sour, dry and smoky than sweet. Less complicated than other Haand beers but nice and solid.

ElDesmadre (1613) - 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.

Brown 0.5L bottle 6% , dark brown foggy body , tan film. Chocolate malts to the nose, some hops, eggs, hints of yeast. Surprisingly mild taste, carefully roasted chocolate malts, caramel notes, floury modest bitterness under it. Seems fruity on palate, don’t know which fruit, mealy, alright body, suitable carbonation. Aftertaste lingers a bit, dark sweet chocolate, malts, sweet fruity grains. Nice indeed. May be go well along with deserts, confectionery, cakes, or just as a nice drink instead of bock or porter. #816B tapped220512 BBF22may15 b@vinmonopolet, tasted@home.

Lite hengende skum. Fin dunkel brun farge. Lite lukt, men likevell litt av rosin og eik. God smak av rosin ig frukter.

Foffern (1252) - Bodø, NORWAY - APR 28, 2013
Bottle at Naboen, Bergen. Pours an unclear brown colour with a small beige creamy head. Aroma of dried fruit, leather, chocolate, some coffee and some nice roasted tones. Some of the same stuff in the flavour but is more malty with wood and nuts. Balanced and nice. Has a slick mouth feel, and a light bitterness. An incredibly balanced and easy-drinking dark Belgian ale.
