Storm (2684) - Amager, - SEP 6, 2008
50 cl can. Hollyday in France. Reddish clear brown colour with a huge dense white head. Aroma and flavour of fruit and chocolate. Pretty nice and with a high drinkability. Ends up sweet and hints of "bananasplint"

Joakgust (834) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 18, 2014
Bottle. Clear amber copper beer with a large white head. Aroma is malty with notes of caramel, toffee, herbs and dried fruit. Flavor is spicy with notes of caramel, cloves, herbs, dried fruit and alcohol. Not very balanced.

Pours a cokelike color with a thick head. Nice funky/belgian aroma. Malty taste with tones of burnt candy.

Mainuh_man (62) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 12, 2014
0.25L bottle. Pours a clear red-brown with a frothy tan head. Really nice malt aromas. Chocolate, cinammon, caramel. Initially, quite sweet with some hints of burnt sugar/ caramel that was on the nose. Stays sweet throughout, but finishes with just enough roasted malt and herby hop bitter to balance it out. Medium-body with a surprisingly thin mouthfeel (pleasant given the sweetness) and mild carbonation. Overall, a fairly sweet beer, but features some nice malt aromas and flavors. Even though this is a macro-brew, it’s a good representative of what brown ales can be.

Uit Frankrijk in blik, ruikt naar drop en kaneel. Prima, maar vrij normaal bruin bier.

Kita (988) - Koper, SLOVENIA - JUN 27, 2014
Can & swing top bottle, 0.50l. Clear amber brown color with medium creamy off-white head. Aroma of dark fruits, caramel, toffee and herbal hops. Taste starts with sweet caramel and mildly roasted malt, follows by fruity acidity and light bitter finish. Medium body, syrupy texture and average carbonation in palate. Very decent brew, positive surprise for sure...

Not the best brune I've tried. Light smell. Flat, bitter taste. Nice aftertaste though.

Can from a street market in Paris, France. Nice cola brown pour. Strange bread and sugary sweet roll nose. Caramel and bread. This is too sweet for what it wants to be. Looks good, though.
