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.

Botella, thanks Yngvar! Hazy dark brown, nice medium head. Sweet caramel nutty chocolate bitter aroma. Quite good a mouthfeel. The flavour has a good dark maltiness with bitter hops, nuts, some chocolate and roasty caramel. Bitter malty caramellic finish. Nice.

Maria (10213) - Thisted, DENMARK - SEP 11, 2010
It’s mahogany-red with a huge, creamy head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, chocolate, caramel and nuts. The flavour has notes of roasted malt, karamel, licorice, a little nuts and the finish is dry with a touch of citrus – a nice beer indeed!

GT (9982) - Oceanside, 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.

allmyvinyl (9562) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 9, 2013
500ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours dark reddish-tinged brown, no head. Aromas of chocolate malt, cereal and iron. Taste has chocolate and coffee, decent balance of bitter and sweet. Medium body, slick texture, short finish. Not the most exciting beer they’ve ever done, but solid enough.

JorisPPattyn (9532) - Ursel, BELGIUM - AUG 31, 2010
Small but persistent dark-creamcoloured head over beautiful red-brown beer. Bit sourish nose, superimposed upon dark, melanoidin-y malts and some buttery notes. Rosemary aroma. Rather dry, woody flavour, spicy, cacaopowder, and dried juniper or cypress branches. Medium bodied, bit watery but not too much. Little qua aftertaste. Nice, dry brown; spicy and light.
