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.

mansquito (4114) - Nueva York, New York, USA - AUG 15, 2012
Henrik Ol & Vinstove, Bergen tap: Pours a brown colour with an off-white head. Aroma is fruity and sweet malty. Taste is lightly sweet and heavily fruity. Tis does have a nice body. Some earth. This is good, but it is one of the more forgettable beers from Nogne O.

DanielBrown (4112) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 16, 2012
Bottle from Stirchley Wines, Birmingham. Pours a dark chestnut Brun. Smell is gentle choc. Flavour us pretty subtle, pretty smooth, with correct mouth thickness. Slightly watery, but a pleasant aftertaste. A little like a Uk cask Porter. Nice, but lacks a little sharpness. Doesn’t taste the strength.

AshtonMcCobb (3930) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 6, 2011
50cl bottle. Pours an opaque coffee colour with a decent head. The nose is chocolatey with a slight burnt coffee note. The taste is more of the same but the coffee is dominant this time. The palate is good - nice texture after a medium sized body and then cleans ok. Overall, yep another great reproduction of a style by Nogne. Is there any style they can’t do?

rickgordon (3846) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 16, 2008
500 ml bottle. Thanks to Dugge here. Dark brown colour, with low head, in fact only bubbles, that diminishes quickly. Chocolatey, ashy phenols in aroma. Very smooth, delicate mouthfeel, with ashy phenols, little fruitiness and chocolate. Solid beer with ashiness being most prominent. The Belgian yeast is of course a very good backbone here, giving it profile to the taste. Prety good attenuation here, making it pretty good dry. Not a fan of dubbels.

stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - MAR 28, 2011
Bottle, 50cl. Pours a clear and dark brown beer with a beige head. The aroma is malt, caramel, some ash, notes of fruit and chocolate. The flavor is close to the nose with some additional nut. The palate is sweetness. Overall an average beer.

JohnRMurdoch (3788) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - JUL 29, 2013
500ml bottle from Appellation Wines. Dark chestnut brown, reasonable head. Nutty malt aroma &flavour, smooth with sweet aftertaste. Not normally my favourite style of beer but I like this one.

altonbrownd (3752) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - OCT 14, 2011
Bottle from Bierkoning. Dark brown body with small head. Nose of caramel, yeast, citrus. Taste is caramel and malts. Nice texture that is fizzy, but also well-rounded. Quite smooth overall. Nicely done.

Aniela (3680) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 19, 2012
50 cl bottle in Grebbestad. Brownalmost clear beer with a small white head. Malty, hoppy, citrus, orange, ginger aroma. Malty and citrus flavour with a nice touch of choclate notes.

visionthing (3614) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 23, 2014
50cl bottle from Vinmonopolet Kiellandsplass, Oslo. Pours hazy dark brown with a small, tan head. Mild malty aroma with some roasty notes, caramel, dark fruits and hints of fruits and Belgian yeast. Medium sweet with pleasant, but quite mild flavours. Some bitterness in the finish. Nothing wrong, but a bit anonymous. Pretty sure it would work well to food.
