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 (3385) - 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.

mkel07 (3381) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - OCT 21, 2011
500ml bottle. Rich dark colour like a christmas pudding. Flat layer of tan foam and fruity aromas of prunes and currants. Well balanced flavours with a complex mix of fruit and malt. A good beer to sit and sip.

Palme (3365) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 4, 2011
0.5l bottle. Pours a deep cloudy brown body with a red hue and a solid beige, lacing head. Nose is mild with yeast, dried fruits, forest and faint hops. Body is medium, perhaps a bit watery and the carbonation is medium+ Good tastes with notes of coffee beans, dried fruits, orange-zest and some thin chocolate with a slightly mild-sour-hoppy aftertaste. I think this was quite alright and it definitely tasted quite good combined with cheese and crackers.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - OCT 26, 2010
Bottle, Batch #386, brewed on 07/10/2008, best by 07/10/2013, and consumed in 09/2010. The pour yields a lightly hazy, reddish-brown body with a frothy beige head. Wet, spotted lacing marks the glass. The nose is off with a capital ’O’, showing notes of menthol and tart cereal grain mash over a one dimensional, dried, brown sugar malt base. Flavors also give these minty, harsh menthol notes amidst a very unimpressive, soured grain and caramel sugar malt contingent. Something has gone horribly wrong here, for sure. Thin and watery, almost lifeless from a lack of carbonation, the palate would benefit from some bubbles and considerably more residual sugar. This was pretty bad. Almost undrinkable.

allmyvinyl (3338) - 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.

JohnRMurdoch (3278) - 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.

Bottle. Pours hazy coffee brown with airy light tan head. Clear aroma of coffee, malt, and fruit. Bitter, roasty flavour, with notes of hops, coffee, malt and liquorice, and hints of fruit. Bitter aftertaste. Lively carbonation. A nice one.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 30, 2011
On keg at Bacchus, Newcastle. Pours a hazel colour with a decent yellowish head. Typical Belgian dubbel aroma, fruity with blueberries, caramel, chocolate and yeast. Flavours of blueberries again, yeast, apple, barley and caramel. Light carbonation with a little CO2 prickle. Foamy mouth-feel. OK but a little thin.
