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.

GT2 (8741) - 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.

Rune (8464) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAR 8, 2009
500ml bottle, batch 386, from Vinmonopolet, Langnes. Light brownish hue with good duration over a deep, dark brown body. Comprehensive beer in both aroma and flavour. Very well balanced smell of just malts and hops. Taste of dark fruits and dark, chocolate malts with underlying spicy acidity. Light hints of yeast. Ends up with lingering hop bitterness. Ashy dryness in texture. Well bodied. I bought a few more bottles to be cellared, should be interesting to re-taste them before Oct.2013 (Tromsø, 07.03.2009).

JorisPPattyn (8031) - Antwerpen, 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.

500 ml bottle. Batch #753. BB 18/01/15. (Vinmonopolet) Mo i Rana, Norway. Hazy brown colour with small tan head. Yeast, brown sugar, malt and mild dark fruits in aroma. Flavour is dark malt, yeast, hints of hops and dark fruits. Quite simple and boring Ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bottle from pivni rozmanitost. turbid brown with a yellow-grey head; aroma of mushy weetbix and sultanas; pretty simple flavours - light touch of instant coffee and modest bitterness. nothing too exciting

Hansen (6873) - Assentoft, DENMARK - JUL 21, 2012
Poffed out of the bottle, almost half of the beer ended on the table and floor. And I didn’t shake it. Dark brown, hazy. Has an off-white head, medium duration. Nice aroma, malty, caramel, soy-sauce. Flavor is starting malty sweet, complex notes, nuts, caramel, real nice. Creamy texture and soft carbonation.

lusikka (6523) - 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.
