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.

KnutAlbert (6398) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 13, 2009
Bottle at home. A very quaffable, malty Belgian style beer. Cereals, a little sourness,but the very opposite of their extreme beers. This could easily be their regular draft beer, easy drinking and pleasant.

gyllenbock (6285) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 12, 2010
Bottle. Dark color, quite thick tan head. The aroma I would say was pretty mild, "Belgian" spices, yeast, some fruitiness, and "wood". The taste was also quite mild, some sweetness, malt and spices. Medium body and carbonation. Nuts and burnt tones in the finish. Ok beer but not the most memorable experience.

Glouglouburp (6103) - 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.
